IMPACT is your one month fitness and lifestyle program designed to get you fit or fitter fast! IMPACT incorporates all of the advanced training principles used by the fittest athletes and fitness models and modifies it into a fun and productive group workout you can enjoy and see quick results from. IMPACT is an acronym that stands for "Intense Mixed Performance Accelerated Cross Training" The concept and program design comes from several years of research and application looking into what modes of training and what sequences of these modes consistently generated the maximum results in the least amount of time. The product of these efforts is our IMPACT program.
Think of this as the Best of the Best of the Best fitness lifestyle programs where you get the MAXIMUM RESULTS in the LEAST AMOUNT OF TIME.
The workouts are 3 days per week for 55 minutes. Each workout includes a 5 minute warm up to get your energy up, your blood pumping and prepare you for what’s to come. Next is a 10 minute speed, agility and quickness segment referred to as SAQ. Here you will perform drills seen in track and field events, in foot ball combines and from your grammar school gym class. SAQ is followed by 20 minutes of strength and conditioning. You can expect some traditional and some new strengthening moves to sculpt your perfect body.
Monday is a lower body focus. Wednesday targets the upper body and on Friday is the important midsection including any and all muscles below the chin and above the hip bone. Just when you think you have exerted yourself, get ready for 10 minutes of fat blasting cardio conditioning to leave your metabolism at an all time high for hours following your IMPACT workout. Finally you will be rewarded with 5 minutes of total body stretching that will leave you feeling accomplished, happy, successful and inspired.
While the workouts sound intense (and they are) your coach is a qualified professional who knows how to modify the moves for all levels and abilities. You will be instructed to perform as much as you can handle, given modifications for your abilities and will be supported in achieving the results you desire. Do not let fear or intimidation keep you from these classes. In a month your abilities will be heightened and you will be in a new body.

Q. What if I am doing other fitness activities?
A.The IMPACT program is a 3 and 4 day a week, 55 minute workout that is high intensity. If you are already athletic, you may be able to also do this in conjunction with other activities.

Q.What can I expect if I do the workouts, but not the meal plan?
A.You will be fitter, firmer and better conditioned, but you should not expect dramatic changes to your body composition.
