Welcome back to this week’s edition of 2-Minute Tuesdays where we are talking about one exercise topic for two minutes and giving you three reasons why you should follow our advice.  Now this week, we are talking to those of you who are sitting there wondering, “How is what they are doing at Muscle Activation Schaumburg any different from what I see being done at the gym that I go to?”  We want to give you three reasons why.

1) We Have An In-Depth Understanding Of Anatomy

Reason Number One Why MAS Is Different Than Your Gym: At Muscle Activation Schaumburg, we strive to continue to study bone structure, joint structure, and tissue function.  The reason why this is so important is because when you exercise, you are moving your bones and joints and using your muscle tissues. The more we can understand about your anatomy, the safer and more effective your exercise becomes.

Practical Application:  If you don’t understand precisely where muscles attach, you won’t be able to effectively challenge them.  By understanding exactly how your body is built, we are able to build exercise to fit your body and get you the results you want in less time and with a lower likelihood of injury.

2) We Take A Muscle System-Centered Approach To A Health-Focused Workout

Reason Number Two Why MAS Is Different Than Your Gym: At MAS we take a muscle system-centered approach to a health-focused workout.  This means that when you are working out with us, we are always trying to figure out how well your muscular system is working and exercise appropriately for your muscular system with the overarching goal being to build your health.  At MAS, we take both of those approaches to try to ensure that your workouts are building your health and not breaking you down.

Practical Application:  This will feel completely different than how you have worked out in the past.  You won’t get to mentally check out during your workout, because we are going to be asking you to focus on what is going on within your body.  The end result is you will get a phenomenal workout without the achiness and soreness that typically comes along.

3) We Specialize In Working With People 50+

Reason Number Three Why MAS Is Different Than Your Gym:  At MAS, we have spent a lot of time figuring out how to best help people 50 years old and over.  The reason why this is so important for you, even if you are a few years younger than 50, is that we are building a sustainable way for you to exercise for life.  We have figured out a way to ensure that exercise won’t be beating up your joints and won’t be harassing your muscles.

Practical Application:  The only way you can receive the lifelong benefits of exercise is if you continue to exercise for your entire life.  At MAS, that is our mission – to teach you how to exercise in a safe, effective, and sustainable manner that you could do for the rest of your life.
