The benefits of high intensity short interval training regimens have been well documented. High intensity interval strength training has been shown to have an added benefit, that of inducing a greater release of beneficial proteins by skeletal muscle (termed cytokines or more accurately myokines). These beneficial proteins or myokines have been shown to help decrease inflammation and aid in weight loss by increasing fat metabolism. The most effective program for lifelong fitness, weight management and improved sense of well-being would include high intensity short interval strength training with a sensible/palatable diet and light aerobics for cardiovascular health. The major obstacles that I have seen in over 22 years of medical practice in getting patients to exercise regularly and eat sensibly are time constraints and ready access to sensible meal plans and motivation to implement them. The Quick-Hit program solves these problems by providing a scientifically proven 15 minute once per week intensive strength training program and enrolls its members in a nutritional application tutorial which provides easy, quick and nutritious recipes along with the motivation and confidence to pursue healthy nutrition.
One of the problems with strength training is the frequency with which participants are injured in the process of strength training. This occurs almost equally with weight machine and free weight training as it does with body weight training exercises. This in addition to the time commitments for these training methods results in a high rate of drop out by their participants. The Quick-Hit machine is revolutionary in its design and this coupled with a dedicated professional trainer who coaches participants through the exercises virtually eliminates these issues. The Quick-Hit machine works each muscle group through a full range of the muscle’s motion with the smoothest resistance I have experienced compared to the full gamut of other strength training equipment and methods. The smooth resistance enables maximum muscle training while virtually eliminating injury and it does this with optimum effectiveness in just 15 minutes per week!
Rarely in my personal and professional life have I made unqualified recommendations for anything, but having tried this program for three months I am very comfortable commending the program to persons of all age groups without qualification or reservation.
