Frequently Asked Questions
I have a medical condition. Can I use your system?
As with any new fitness routine, consulting with your doctor is always an excellent idea. Our trainers are certified, and can generally work with or around many common medical conditions. Strength training has been shown to improve blood sugar levels, reduce cancer risks, improve flexibility and mobility, help prevent osteoporosis, and increase overall lifespan.
I’ve had a joint replaced. What about me?
We’ve had numerous clients be very successful after various different joint replacement surgeries. Our system only provides as much resistance as you’re willing to put in, which minimizes the risk of any injury. In addition, since our protocol engages the supporting musculature around the affected joint (wherever it may be), flexibility and mobility of that area should improve.
Am I too weak to use your system?
Our system measures the amount of force you can produce, and is able to match you every step of the way. No matter how weak you may think you are, we have a training program that can build strength and help promote muscle growth.
Is 20 minutes 1-2 times per week enough?
Yes! We’ve based our exercise protocols on research from leading fitness scientists. During your workout, we help your muscles rapidly approach the point where they signal a need for growth.
I just want to tone up. I don’t want to be bulky.
Generally speaking, the majority of the population doesn’t get excessively bulky from proper exercise and strength training in the absence of steroid use. Women, in particular, are very unlikely to bulk up.
Can I go more frequently for faster results?
Our protocol strives to fully fatigue your muscles. With that fatigue comes a need for recovery – during which time the body rebuilds the old muscle and starts building new muscle. Because of this, we do not recommend more workouts, as they would not provide the body with enough time to recover.
I’m self-conscious. I don’t want to work out in front of others.
QuickHIT sessions are 1-on-1 with a certified personal coach. During your time at our facility, you have the trainer’s full attention. There are no other machines, no other people to be afraid of staring, or comparing yourself to, or even to try to talk to you. At QuickHIT, you’re competing with yourself.
Am I too old?
You’re never too old. Our system will meet you where you’re at, and will chart your progress for you, so that you can look back and see how far you’ve come.
I’ve heard of similar technologies used for Osteoporosis.
Slow, high-intensity training has been widely researched for bone density in the hip and leg joints, showing not just maintenance, but actual increases in bone density.
