For years, I’ve tried to get into a regular exercise routine but I never enjoyed
spending much time in the gym. Once I turned 40, I realized I could no longer rely on the occasional workouts I was getting
without losing some muscle mass. John’s program was the perfect solution for me. By committing only twenty minutes, once
a week, John has helped me get into the best physical condition of my life.
John’s one-on-one personal training
helps me get the most out of the time I spend in his gym. He helps me stay focused on my form and my breathing, which also
enables me to work out with the heavy weights safely. John also keeps me moving quickly between machines, so that I can benefit
from a higher level of conditioning. Because of John’s specialized knowledge and excellent training skills, I know I’ve found
a program I can commit to for life.

When I think of all the hours per week I used to spend trying to stay in shape,
it seems like such a waste of time. Do the math -- two hours strength training per week plus 45 minutes of aerobics three
to four times a week -- that's five hours a week. I am stronger now than I have ever been in just 17 minutes a week. I still
do some aerobics, but the big difference is that I'm doing aerobics I enjoy like playing tennis, gardening, and walking the
dog. My tennis game, especially my serve, have improved a great deal. Another thing I really appreciate about John is that
he has been able to adapt some of the exercises so as not to aggravate my tendonitis. Though he pushes me hard to do my best,
he's always been very careful not to make an injury worse.
I can't imagine going back to the old workout!

I started Super Slow with you was because I wanted to be in shape and hopefully lose some weight in the process. As I got
in to the program I realized that it would also help cure some of my common ailments such as my bad back while also helping
me with my favorite pastime golf.
What initially got me interested was the fact that it was one workout for 30 minutes
once a week. I had tried the fitness clubs and had not found that I had any consistency or achieved any better fitness from
Over the time that I have been in the program I have lost about 10 pounds to about 195 which is in my range
for a person 6'3". I have also changed some of the other weight from fat to muscle and generally feel stronger and in good
shape, especially for somebody 61. I have also improved my golf game where it is now equal to friends of mine who are 15 to
20 years younger.
Although the workouts are hard it is only once a week and I can see results which makes the effort,
time and expense worthwhile.

Just a quick note of thanks for all you've done for me over the last three years. As you remember
at that time my primary goal was to find a training plan that would accommodate my weekly business trips. It has certainly
proved to be true that "thirty minutes a week" is enough to improve my overall health, feel good about doing something for
my aging body, and still get to the airport on time!
I've also shared with you, but want to reiterate, how nice
it was to go snowboarding with my teenage son -- for the first time -- and not only have the strength to perform, but the
strength to NOT ache all over the next day. I know that without SuperSlow I would have been a wreck!
point... I don't work out to 'meet people' or socialize, so for me the closed, one-on-one training allows me to exercise without
worrying what 'that person on the next treadmill' is thinking. I like the discipline and focus required with SuperSlow.

Hi, my name is Whitney Woods
and I am a 41 year old Physical Therapy assistant and a competitive athlete. I was referred to John Tatore and Super Slow
by a 55 year old friend of mine whose musculature was defined and toned. Even though I knew she hated to exercise, I had
to ask her how she got those lean arms and shoulders. The answer was Super Slow. How was this body possible to achieve and
maintain with just a 1/2 hour workout per week?
I drove the half hour from North Fairfield for my first consultation
knowing that it would have to be something really special for me to make that drive to Stamford once a week. The small, private,
clean personal training boutique was great. The best surprise was that each session only involved four specific machines per
visit. Better still, it's just you and your coach in the room. It's intense and very interpersonal, professional and encouraging.
John Tatore is more than a personal trainer. He's very well studied in the anatomy and sports medicine. He's a true
professional who "gets in your ear" when the lifting gets tough. He is always present to support your form and technique.
He demands total focus from his clients during their 25 minutes so that they can experience maximal results and feel supported.
I am a semi-professional athlete who trains 4 days a week for my sport. Once I discovered how quickly my body
responded to SuperSlow, I had to reevaluate my entire program. I have more lean definition than ever before. Not bulky mass,
but just stronger and leaner all over . The workouts are not for the faint of heart as the goal is, in fact, to reach muscle
failure. Still, I have seen 80 year old women on the machines as I wait for my turn. It's inspiring. They positively glow
as they finish the workout. The body responds to the exertion by releasing endorphins and a huge feeling of well being.
Now that I have been with John and Super Slow for more than a year, the workouts are pretty tough indeed. Still,
for someone who has had four knee reconstructions and a shoulder repair, I only experience safe strengthening with no injury
or pain or soreness. I was fearful about that at first. For me, each session is like a mini Outward Bound experience. You
work up to my level of training over time, but it requires tremendous focus and determination. When you can get to a "mind
over matter" state of being, the session is over so quickly and yields a supreme sense of accomplishment.
phenomenon, this Slow technique. It's as good for me mentally as it is physically. Once a week is such an easy commitment
to make for a payoff that is so huge and multilayered.
I welcome any phone calls from skeptics or people with questions.
I am a true believer. You won't know unless you try it.

As a working Mom I found I was not getting to the gym and to exercise classes
on a regular basis and when I did go I did not feel I was getting the benefits I was looking for. I tried SuperSlow under
John Tatore’s instruction 3 1/2 years ago.
What I love best about my weekly appointment with John at Exercise Solution
is the fact that I don't have to keep track of weights or reps. John takes care of the fitness program and I spend all my
time and energy on doing the exercises slow and with good form. I love the fact that I have gotten toned and feel that I
am doing it in a safe method where I don't risk pulled muscles or injuries. I really appreciate being able to exercise then
change and go right to the office. Weekly SuperSlow exercise has become part of my routine and I look forward to going to
my appointments each week. I also have found I have better strength and endurance while doing other activities with my family
like skiing, tennis, golf and water sports. SuperSlow is the perfect exercise for a busy person like myself with work and
family commitments who want to maintain strength
and muscle tone.
