Weightlifting builds muscle size and strength, unlike coating biceps in marshmallow fluff, which mostly just attracts vicious hornets. Try a workout that sticks with today's Groupon: for $88, you get an introductory session and two strength-training sessions at PhysioLife Studios (a $177 value).
The experienced trainers at PhysioLife Studios help mold musclestuffs with the trademark PhysioSlow workout, a biweekly regimen that's garnered attention from Michigan Avenue magazine and TV's The Today Show. PhysioSlow defies the logic of today's frenetic techno-streaming culture by wielding slow speed, proper form, and fewer repetitions to exhaust targeted muscles completely. During a one-hour introductory appointment, each exerciser will consult with a personal trainer to share their fitness goals and health history, including the period when their heart moonlighted as a railroad tycoon, before diving into the exercises. A duo of exercise sessions comes next, where clients perform personalized routines to pique the entire anatomical set in just 30 minutes.
The PhysioSlow program boasts several benefits unmatched by regular-speed counterparts, including the ability to safely exercise despite prior injuries or the former presence of scissor hands. With continued practice, many of the studio's success stories note weight loss, lean, toned muscles, fortified bone density, reduced back pain, and accelerated energy levels.
