Matthew Fenichel discusses Hypopressive Techniques, The PressureLess Workout and how each could benefit your facility.
What are Hypopressive Techniques, and why should a health club know about them?
Hypopressive Techniques is many things. It is a postural technique and a breathing technique. When the two combine, it becomes a means to exercise many aspects of the human body that otherwise are unattended. It also counters some of the damage done by other forms of exercise. Hypopressive Techniques is the future of fitness.
It will signal the club as above average, a more professional facility. It will give the organization entry into the world of medical fitness and a referral network that has intrinsic value. It exposes multiple new audiences that would otherwise never consider their facility. Hypopressive Techniques can replace or enhance existing fitness programs. Really there is so much to know, it is important that any facility or organization that wants to stay on the cutting edge of fitness be in touch with us.
For those that don’t know about your company, what can you tell them about it? What benefits can you bring to their facility?
Our company, Low Pressure Fitness, has an exciting story to tell, and is still being written. So I will comment on the benefits we offer facilities. The claim that we attract new and retain existing clients is often heard. If someone is in “limited” condition, they can easily do LPF, and quickly benefit. So we truly attract those who would otherwise be strangers to a fitness facility. The benefits being reasonably noticeable and quick, appeals to existing members, retaining longer-term participants.
How is your company different from competitors with similar products or services?
This is an easy one for us, because if there is anyone with a truly similar “product or service” we would like to know. Simply put, we are one of a kind, because it has taken years of research and practice to bring LPF to the efficient and effective point it is now at, where most anyone and everyone can benefit and can learn to do LPF. We are as much a learning company as we are a training education company. We welcome those who can add to our knowledge to partner with us.
What advice can you give to clubs looking to offer Hypopressive Techniques at their facility?
To please contact us, or me directly at 860.716.1156. It may sound contradictory at this stage of the game — we are new — but we fully intend to limit our growth and saturation to assure integrity and quality of the learning process and service rendered, as well as the facilities authorized to offer LPF.
What can consumers look forward to from your company in the future?
Results for themselves. Quality from the facilities authorized. Integrity from the professionals who train them. Support from the growing Hypopressive LPF community.
Can you further explain what Hypopressive Techniques are, and why you call it the “PressureLess Workout?”
Imagine a very fragile balloon, that is your so-called “core,” behind the abdominals. There is also the diaphragm at one end, pelvic floor and more at the other. When you do traditional exercise such as HIIT circuits, you increase pressure in the balloon, the abdominal-perennial region.
We all know what happens when a balloon gets distorted — disaster. The same is true of your core. When you learn Hypopressive Techniques, you do exercise that reduces the internal pressure in your body, which itself exercises the entire core region, not just the abdominals.
In addition, unlike so many exercise routines, where you really need to be fit to start, LPF is for anyone, at most any stage of fitness or even unfitness. There is no pressure on you emotionally to be someone you are not. Additionally, there is no comparison of one’s practice or body to another. You focus on your enhanced health, others focus on theirs. And while we can’t yet document it, many find it brings about a better state of reduced stress. Truly its just PressureLess when you practice Low Pressure Fitness.
