- Most people exercise because we want our bodies to change in some way.
- The primary change we are looking for is usually heath related such as to lose weight, get stronger, build muscle, or get more aerobically fit.
- The latest science has shown that traditional weight resistance training is extremely inefficient and that traditional aerobic activities take a lot of time, are very hard on your joints, and often cause the loss of lean muscle mass.
- Lean muscle gives the body its shape, and it burns three to five times more calories a day per pound than fat does. We also lose between 3-5% of our muscle every 10 years once past 30.2
- Science has proven that the absolute fastest way to build more muscle is to exercise a muscle to the point where you cannot lift the weight again.3 This is called muscle failure.
- Muscles work in two directions, positive and negative. Positive is pushing the weight, as in doing a chest press. Negative is returning to the starting position. When doing resistance training, muscles do not reach full failure because they only require pushing in the positive direction. Gravity takes over in the negative direction, and the muscle is basically resting. So the muscle will go to failure in the positive direction only, but not in the negative direction.
- Unlike every other method, our technology brings your muscles to failure in both the positive (up) and negative (down) directions, giving you scientifically proven maximum muscle-building benefits.4
- The large video display on the computer tracks your increase in strength each week. Our technology is so effective that you will be stronger after your first week. Guaranteed! It displays this week’s graph (red) versus last week’s (green). Your personal trainer is there to guide you and ensure your safety.
- The computer will never push harder than you can safely resist. If you stop pushing, the machine stops instantly, making it safe for anyone from age 10 to 100.
- This short intense workout will also provide more aerobic benefits than several hours of normal aerobic training.5
- Our strength training is personalized and several studies have shown that having a personal trainer can increase your results by a significant percentage.6
- We offer a second technology that uses High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).7 Its unique cooling technology and compression therapy give you more benefit in a single 20 minute session than several hours of traditional aerobic training.8
- Our third technology is a medical-grade body composition instrument that will precisely calculate your current percentage of muscle versus body fat. On a traditional diet, with or without exercise, most people lose a significant amount of lean muscle as well as some fat. This technology identifies increases in lean muscle, minimizes loss of lean muscle when dieting, and tracks fat loss.
The scientifically proven benefits of our methods in as little as one session a week:
- Reduced body fat levels9
- Increased strength5
- Enhanced cardiovascular efficiency10
- Lower cholesterol levels11
- Reduced chance of injury12
- Stronger immune system13
- Complete metabolic health14
- Increased bone density15
- Reduced risk of Type II diabetes16
- Reduced blood pressure17
Invest in yourself. There is no safer investment nor one that will give greater returns.
Your first ARX session will be about 40 minutes. One week later you will come in again for another ARX session for about 20 minutes, and you WILL be stronger/fitter. With each new week, the computer data will show your results and progression. You can also use the Vasper machine 2-4 times as a supplemental aerobic/recovery session. These take about 21 minutes each.

- A. The Globe and Mail article cited a famous study that was conducted at Ball State University in Indiana, researchers put two groups of 10 men through identical 12-week strength-training programs. At the end of the experiment, one group had gained 32 per cent more upper-body strength and 47 per cent more lower-body strength than the other. The only difference was that the more successful group had a personal trainer. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/health-and-fitness/fitness/will-i-get-a-better-workout-if-i-hire-a-personal-trainer/article4268225/ B. Researchers at the University of Brasilia in Brazil compared two groups of 100 volunteers who undertook a 12-week strength-training program, supervised either by one trainer for every five athletes, or one trainer for every 25 athletes. The results, which were published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning. The highly supervised group improved their bench press by 16 per cent, while the less supervised group chose lighter weights and improved by only 10 per cent.
