Canadian Investor Opens “20 Minutes to Fitness” in Sarasota

Posted: January 3rd, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Sarasota Immigrants | No Comments »

In light of the many people who resolved to get fit in 2011, we would like to congratulate Canadian investor, Hugh Elsam, who recently opened a 20 Minutes to Fitness studio in downtown Sarasota.  This fitness studio is unique, because it offers a complete, full body work out once per week for just 20 minutes.

The 20 Minutes to Fitness training is performed: (1) on highly-specialized, compound-muscle training equipment; (2) using a slow, safe, proven training protocol; (3) under the supervision of certified, 20 Minutes to Fitness personal trainers; (4) in a quiet, semi-private studio, where there is no waiting on equipment; and (5) typically requiring only one, 20 minute session a week. A training session lasts from 20 to 22 minutes, with the client training on five to seven pieces of equipment. Since most of the equipment focuses on a compound muscle groups, one session provides a full-body workout.

The 20 Minutes to Fitness studio in Sarasota occupies over 3,000 square feet in one of the new office buildings on the Rivo on Ringling property.

I was recently invited to an orientation and trial workout to see how I would like a 20 Minutes to Fitness concept.  I met with the General Manager, Michelle, who first talked to me about my health and my fitness goals.  Then, she had me work on four different machines for approximately 2 minutes each.  With each machine, she showed me how to do a slow contraction and release it (it has to take 10 to 15 seconds one way and 10 to 15 seconds back).  After I had the timing down, I had to do slow repetitions for up to two minutes on each machine until I could not do any more.  It was a real workout!  When I was finished (in 20 minutes!), I felt like I had really put my muscles to the test.  I will be back for sure.

20 Minutes to Fitness gave me some certificates for a fee orientation and workout.  If you would like to try them out, please send me an email:
