WHAT IS FLEX ALL ABOUT?
Flex 151 does not measure a workout's productivity in terms of hours in the gym or a set number of repetitions; instead, our computerized Intelligent Training System measures the time your muscle is contracted. We strive to safely and consistently reach the point that challenges the body to make an adaptation, yielding the most efficient and effective workout possible. There are no longer any excuses not to workout!
SINCE I HAVE GOTTEN OLDER I CAN'T DO AS MANY THINGS AS I USED TO BE ABLE TO. IS FLEX STILL FOR ME?
Yes, of course! The staff at Livewell will customize your workout so you do not injure or push yourself too hard.
CAN I WORK OUT MORE THAN TWO TIMES A WEEK?
The answer to that is no because your muscles need time to rest and repair.
HOW DO I KNOW I AM GETTING A GOOD WORKOUT IN SUCH LITTLE TIME?
We have successfully taken multiple hours in the gym and condensed them into an effective, efficient workout so you can enjoy life outside of the gym.
WHEN WILL I START TO SEE RESULTS?
This varies from client to client, but if you put your best effort forward every week (whether you come once or twice a week), then you will see results.
You may have noticed that with Flex 151’s program, we try to refrain from sweating while working our muscles. Is this because we do not value sweating? Absolutely not! When your muscles are contracting and lengthening to produce force, the muscle fibers are very rapidly vibrating and rubbing together, thus causing heat. This heat creates lactic acid. Not a bad thing…we all love the ‘burn’; however, if we want to enjoy the time efficiency and 6.5 x more efficient workout than that of conventional resistance training…there is a requirement and that requirement is muscle failure. We want the tuckered out muscles to be fully depleted of energy by the end of the set through the sequential recruitment of slow and fast twitch muscle fibers, a process called inroading. With our heavily researched anaerobic workout, we burn more sugar and hold off lactic acid longer by also not contributing to our failure through early heat and premature lactic ‘burn’. So, that crazy diaphragmatic breathing technique we ask you to do is actually a way to expel heat through a respiratory means (like a dog who helps regulate body temperature through panting) and the cool room helps to counter the heat your body creates while doing your first set.
