The SuperSlow® exercise protocol is the trademarked name for a training system developed in 1982 by Ken Hutchins for use in a research project on osteoporosis sponsored by the Nautilus Sports/Medical Industries at the University of Florida Medical School. Hutchins continued to refine the slow application with over 8,000 one-on-one workouts between 1982 and 1986. The SuperSlow® philosophy is based on a theme first conceived by Arthur Jones who said, "Rather than attempting to find out how much exercise we can tolerate we should try to find how little exercise we actually require."
Like with SuperSlow® exercise, Ideal Exercise uses a slow, controlled, high intensity exercise protocol. Having a qualified HIT Exercise Instructor is critical for you to maintain both form and intensity, deep concentration and focus that is needed to safely perform the exercises to the point of maximum muscular fatigue.
