Decision fatigue drains willpower and is likely a reason so many people avoid working out.
It definitely doesn’t help there’s an exhausting list of different ways to exercise — some more effective than others. 😉
You have to decide on things like:
For exercise to be effective, you need a sufficient stimulus to the body, and then you need to give the body a sufficient recovery time to allow growth. — Dr. Philip Alexander
According to Dr. Alexander, “there appears to be an exercise threshold, which is a minimum level of intensity needed to stimulate the body to make its growth changes. If your exercise intensity is too little, you won’t reach the threshold, and the body won’t be stimulated to grow.”
With Effective Exercise: “If the stimulus was intense enough, and if you allowed enough recovery time, the body will then…
Don’t diet. Change your life. Commit now. Every day you don’t is a day lost, and you’re that much farther behind. — Dr. Philip Alexander

The book is super simple, concise, and easy to read — providing an understanding of the principles behind high intensity exercise that you can read and digest in 20-minutes.
Even if you’re already hip to the benefits of high intensity exercise, this book is a great refresher. Dr. …
88% of Americans have markers of insulin resistance, the root cause of the so-called “metabolic diseases,” that include obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
This means only 12% of our population is metabolically healthy.
The nation’s diet — rich in refined carbohydrates, sugar, and vegetable oils and low in real food and healthy fats — combined with a sedentary lifestyle are at the root of the problem.
What are the markers of a metabolically healthy individual?
There are 31,536,000 seconds in a year. Being able to spend significantly less time on something like evidence-based exercise — that can reverse aging and extend lifespan — is how you get more time to do the things you love and become a time billionaire.
The closest thing to a magic pill or fountain of youth is high-intensity resistance training. When done safely, it is hands down the best form of exercise due to the number of benefits it provides. Everyone should be doing it!
High-intensity resistance training is brief, intense, requires ample recovery, and has more positive effects on…

When we first opened in 2016, smartgyms were unheard of. People were skeptical (rightfully so) that these brief and intense workouts could be so effective.
Here we are 3.5 years later, and thanks to your support, The Wall Street Journal called to write a story about YOUR smartgym, Quantify Fitness. The story made it to the top of their website, a mention on the front page of the paper, and the first page of the Life&Arts section.
They even reached out to one of our most skeptical clients, who is also a physical therapist, to ask her about her experience:
The quick answer is we’re not your conventional gym. By combining state-of-the-art technology with an evidence-based approach to exercise, our clients get measurable results in minimal time while creating an enormous amount of data with every workout.
Over the last three-plus years, we’ve witnessed numerous transformations where clients exercise for less than 45-minutes a week, some as little as 10-minutes a week, and see better results than they ever have.
By using software and analytics to track improvements in strength, intensity, aerobic fitness, body composition, and other KPIs, we’ve laid the foundation to use science and technology to help combat…
These statistics are alarming:
