MedX Precision Fitness

What is it?
A sequence of five exercises – leg press, pull down, bench press, row, overhead shoulder press – using MedX weight machines, all set at inconceivably high resistance so that the muscle fibres are recruited and exhausted in minimum time.

How hard is it?
It’s no walk in the park. But it’s not supposed to be. The biggest challenge is avoiding momentum; each rep should take a minimum of 10 seconds in each direction to complete.

What does it work?
The machines target the entire body: legs, chest, back, shoulders, arms and core. But engaging the different muscles groups simultaneously (flexing the biceps and contracting the abs for the pull down) at such high resistance can be difficult while also remembering to breathe.

What are classes like?
No mirrors, no Ke$ha, no instructor on a headset. This is a one-on-one program in a slightly chilly, exceptionally clean mini gym where Mr. Wilson and fellow instructor Nick Kordic sport ties and slacks instead of typical exercise apparel.
