From Your Williamson: The Gym of the Future Is Here

We all know that we should be working out. I doubt anyone questions the benefits of staying fit, exercising, building muscle and getting rid of unhealthy body fat. It all sounds good on paper until it’s time to actually do the work.

Maybe you wake up one day and realize you haven’t exercised in years, and your body doesn’t move like it used to. Others may be coping with a substantial injury or chronic pain that makes working out seem impossible. Oftentimes, the idea of becoming fit again is so overwhelming that you don’t even know where to start.

From Your Williamson: VISCERAL FAT: What is it, and how does it affect your health?

Many people are amazed at how much fat a human being can store. We are born with a certain number of fat cells in our bodies, and this number can actually increase during obesity. The fat that we use to store calories is called white fat, which is found almost everywhere in our body. The fat that we can pinch, see and feel is called peripheral – or subcutaneous – fat. The other type of white fat is inside our body cavity and surrounds our internal organs. It’s called visceral fat, and in this case, what you can’t see can hurt you.

From StyleBlueprint: The Life-Changing Fitness Option You’ve Never Heard Of

Daphne Lynch was like many of us who wrestle with chronic orthopedic issues — the aching back, the chronic knee pain. She’d sit on the edge of the bed for a few minutes before slowly putting her feet down on the floor to start the day. As a 60-something-year-old new grandmother, she wanted to find a way to ensure she’d be able to play with 1-year-old Bennett as he started to walk.

From Your Williamson: Manduu Reinvents Fitness Through Technology

From FOX 17: New fitness option in Brentwood promises to cut down on time at the gym

A new fitness offering in Brentwood and Green Hills brings European technology to the United States with a promise to get fit in a fraction of the time someone normally spends at the gym.

The “too good to be true” suggestion of fitness in 15 minutes puts the proof in its numbers. Muscle mass and body fat are measured after each workout as 55 million sessions have sold around the globe.

Manduu uses electric muscle stimulation to send pulses throughout a vest that contracts and elongates muscles, breaking down the tissue to more effectively and efficiently build new mass.

Mandy Oakes clutched a bright yellow tennis ball while she swiveled her torso to the right.

“Can you turn the resistance up a little bit on my abs?” she asked her instructor halfway through her high-intensity 15-minute workout called Manduu.

Attached to Oakes’ body was a black electrical body suit, which was plugged into a device that tracked the resistance of her nine muscle groups during her exercise. While an instructor guided Oakes, she received electrical muscle stimulation through the suit.

From Malibu Magazine: EMS — The Ultimate Fitness Trend

What a feeling! My whole body starts to tingle! While it doesn’t hurt, it is a bizarre sensation to have an electrical current pulsing through your body every few seconds. The muscles contract and start to shake. As we begin our session, Manduu manager and personal trainer, Jason Hickey, turns on the EMS device that is connected to me via electrodes. Wearing a whole-body suit, somewhat like Lara Croft, the electrodes then connect to my arms, legs, stomach, back and behind. They deliver the electric current that stays on anywhere from four to 20 seconds and then turns off. While the electricity is pulsing through me, Jason asks me to mimic his motions and exercises. For 20 minutes we do squats, lunges, bicep curls and other muscle-building exercises. 20 minutes can feel pretty long.
