TIME IN THE GYM SHOULD FUEL YOUR TIME OUTSIDE
Given up on the traditional workout?
The conventional wisdom says you have to spend hours in the gym, swinging heavy weights and using cardio machines for hours on end. But studies show this will hurt you over the long term with negative effects on your quality of life.
The science says the traditional workout is bunk, and we can prove it. It may be satisfying when you’re 25 years old to quickly toss heavy weights around for an hour, but those of us that are older know there is a price to pay for uncontrolled, joint-damaging movements. If your goal is to use fitness to enable you to do more satisfying activities — such as golf, surfing, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding — then make sure your fitness routine isn’t taking your time or your health away.
Fitness Prometheus is a small, private training facility that, unlike traditional gyms, is designed to minimize damage to your body while maximizing the health benefits of every minute spent working there. The few pieces of equipment we use were specifically chosen for efficiency and the scientific studies proving effectiveness.
RECOVERY AND HORMONE BALANCE
The Vasper Anti-Aging Machine
Prometheus has the only publicly available Vasper unit in Oregon. Both a cardiovascular interval trainer and a recovery tool, the Vasper creates the same response in your body as a 1+ hour workout, releasing repair and growth hormones without actually incurring the damage to muscle that an hour and a half Crossfit workout does. This allows that repair function to work on other items for the body and the hormones to directly benefit your body. Scientifically proven and used for many applications — from concussion and injury recovery to increasing available testosterone in healthy individuals. Professional athletes use it to shorten recovery times between games. It has been shown to lowers cortisol, making it a great sleep aid.
At Vasper Headquarters at NASA Ames Research Park, the Vasper is so accessible it is regularly used by Parkinson’s patients, and the oldest active client is over 90 years old.
The core Vasper protocol is 10 minutes of warmup, 10 minutes of high intensity interval exercise, and 10 minutes of rest. If you’re 40 or over – male or female – 2-3 Vasper sessions a week will improve your mood, boost your hormone profile, and help your body heal itself — all naturally, using your own biology.
Fit3D Body Scanner
