Fitness isn't about living longer...it's about living better!

Life is good!

Oh sure, studies have indicated being active correlates to living longer. But being fit can improve your mood, cognitive abilities, sleep, energy levels, and your ability to do things.

Are you getting the results you want from the gym or your home workouts?

If not, you’re not alone! To get real results at the gym or at home (or both!), let StrongFast Blended Fitness give you:

  • The training you need to stay healthy and reach your fitness goals.
  • The support, coaching, and education you need to keep it up.

So what's keeping you from being as fit as you'd like?

    • Do you have a gym membership that you never or rarely use?
    • Do you have exercise equipment at home collecting dust?
    • Do you have trouble getting the fitness results you want?
    • Do you have difficulty fitting fitness into your busy life?

At StrongFast, we don't train powerlifters or triathletes. We also don't train people who only want to lift tiny colorful dumbbells and take casual walks. If you're somewhere in between and you're ready to progress to being stronger and faster (and feeling, moving, and looking better), then StrongFast Blended Fitness is for you!

Blended Fitness provides a combination of live personal training and personal online training and support. And we're not talking just a forum or some email support. Blended Fitness online includes:

    • One-on-one video consults.
    • Detailed online customized workout programs.
    • Online progress tracking.
    • Regular monitoring of your progress with proactive support.
    • Multiple private message systems.
    • Online instructional videos.
    • And more!

Plus, optional personal training sessions that include:

    • Strength Retention Screen (SRS).
    • Baseline and progress measures.
    • Exercise technique instruction.
    • Targeted workouts.
    • And more!

All to help you reach your fitness goals while building habits and knowledge that will let you keep it up on your own.

Blended Fitness is an ongoing program, not "lose 20 pounds in 30 days!" (and gain it all back in 30 more). We'll take the time to build healthy habits and make steady progress built on a foundation of solid fitness and improved mobility.

Getting older doesn't have to mean feeling older. Do something special for yourself...and your family. Join today!

I've tried most every fad exercise program you can think of but I've come up short. Since joining StrongFast, I've learned exactly how much i was working against myself all these years. Now I'm losing weight, breaking lifetime speed and lifting records and most importantly I feel great. I sleep better, have more energy and don't spend half my work day wishing I could crawl back into bed. This program is whipping me into shape and it's going to keep me there for the long run. -Aaron E.

As a member of StrongFast, I can say nothing but good things about the workouts! I have become stronger, more toned and most importantly a healthier person. Gary is a patient trainer with excellent insight on whole body workouts. I have never been one to look forward to working out, but he makes the workouts fun and pushes you to do your best without even realizing it. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to gain that inner strength and become a more fit person. -Michelle D.

I have worked out with Gary for over a decade and have yet to meet anyone with his level of understanding when it comes to proper workout technique. His ability to break things down into their simplest form is unrivaled and his commitment unmatched. -Jim O.

Fast Relief

exhausted athlete A woman in a gym, apparently having just completed a workout, says, "Fast: that's just the kind of relief my muscles need." Or something like that. It was the beginning of a commercial, and don't ask me for what (other than some pain relief drug, obviously) since it was switched off after that line. Perhaps it was a good commercial, though, since it did get me thinking.

First of all, why is she sore immediately after working out? Sounds like she needs a new workout. (Or a good trainer!) Immediately after a hard workout, muscles experience fatigue, often in the extreme. As in "I can't get up" extreme. But that's different from pain, and no pain-relief product will put a stop to that. The muscular pain associated with a hard workout typically shows up 24-48 hours afterwards and is known as Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness or DOMS. Continue reading

What Is “Fitness”?

People talk about it all the time, but what is "fitness" anyway? The Free Dictionary defines it as:

Good health or physical condition, especially as the result of exercise and proper nutrition.

But there's also the concept of being "fit for duty." I kind of like that: fitness as being "fit for life" as in ready to live life competently. Simply being able to live is comparatively easy in our society: eating, sleeping, breathing...muddling through each day like it's a tedious task. Being fit to live demands more than mediocrity. And that takes some effort. Is it really worth it?

Sprinting WomanImagine you could take a pill (with no side-effects) and instantly double your strength. How would that feel? What might you do differently (other than crush your enemies, of course)? Suddenly, you could run faster, jump higher, climb, lift, throw...do all kinds of activities that were previously very difficult or even impossible. But even the simple things are affected: standing up from a chair, climbing stairs, carrying the groceries, mowing the lawn...almost everything is easier. How much would you pay for a pill like that?

You know where this is going, right? Of course. There's already a way to get those results. It doesn't happen instantly, but it also doesn't cost a fortune. It takes more time and effort than pill-popping, but if you're doing it right, that time and effort can be fun!

But wait! There's more!
