“No more osteoporosis for me! And I have to thank Jeff at the Workout Garage.”
No more osteoporosis for me! And I have to thank Jeff at the Workout Garage. I had cancer 14 years ago and post-treatment bone density tests showed I developed osteoporosis. A year ago I started doing Jeff’s weight training. My most recent bone density showed improvement for the first time. (I’m now osteopenia.) Since I haven’t been on any medication for several years I have to attribute it all to Jeff’s program. I am very happy and very thankful for the results. It’s the best workout, especially for women over 50. —Pam C., Pacific Palisades
“Even at only once a week, it has definitely made my muscles stronger!”
I just had the best proof that my workout sessions are paying off! I spent a long weekend with my two young grandchildren, much of it picking up and holding my 15-month-old grandson. Previously, I always had lower back pain and achy arms and shoulders after a visit, but not this time... and the only thing different is that I have been weight-training. Even at only once a week, it has definitely made my muscles stronger! —Kathy C., Pacific Palisades
“Super slow is incredible. And Jeff is a phenomenal trainer, and at 73, an inspiration.”
I’m 41 and a former pro athlete who’s trained for sport and conditioning most of my life. As a new parent, I needed a new plan to keep my fitness going. I don’t have the time to train for 1 hour a day, 6 days a week right now as I have been the last several years. I’ve been very familiar with super slow training methodology yet it has never been something I’ve been very interested in exploring. However, now it’s perfect (and sustainable) for receiving all the benefits of strength training with maximum time efficiency. Super slow is incredible. And Jeff is a phenomenal trainer, and at 73, an inspiration. —Sean G., Pacific Palisades
“It works!…Felt physical results week 2. Saw physical results week 10.”
I heard about Jeff Grossman and thought, “Well, how can that be? A 30 minute workout once a week?” I am now a true super fan of this type of workout having researched it on my own and taken Jeff’s intro. It makes complete sense and guess what? It works! I bought a 12 week package. Felt physical results week 2. Saw physical results week 10. Amazing, amazing! I mean, I’m in my mid-50s. I’m not expecting to be a fitness model, but I can now definitely see definition in all my limbs and core. Can’t wait to see what the next 12 weeks brings! —Julie G., Pacific Palisades
"Jeff watches you like a hawk so you really can't hurt yourself. I leave each session knowing that I've pushed myself to my limit and I always feel better afterwards."
I've been working with Jeff Grossman on a weekly basis for about 18 months and I am stronger, more flexible, and more physically confident than ever before—and I'm in my mid-60's. You don't have to be an athlete to benefit from this workout. Jeff is so very present and he's always learning something new to share to keep the workout alive. Jeff watches you like a hawk so you really can't hurt yourself. I leave each session knowing that I've pushed myself to my limit and I always feel better afterwards. His expertise and guidance make all the difference. Thank you, Jeff! — Sharon C., Santa Monica
“Certainly there's no program that gives you more benefit in less time!”
I've been working out with Jeff for more than a year, and I feel the benefits almost every day. Jeff is great and the program that he bases the workouts on is well though out. Certainly there's no program that gives you more benefit in less time! — Mike B., Pacific Palisades
“We are both very impressed with how effective the workout is when we only do it once a week for about 30 minutes.”
My husband and I have been doing weight training at the Workout Garage for almost 1 year and the results have been truly fantastic. We are both stronger than we have been in years (or maybe ever). My balance is vastly improved, and so is my cardiovascular fitness. My legs are firm, and the definition that I thought was gone forever has returned. My husband's posture has improved significantly as well as his core strength. We are both very impressed with how effective the workout is when we only do it once a week for about 30 minutes. —Jan O., Pacific Palisades
“My abs, arms and legs are stronger and more toned, and my bone density has increased.”
I found this fantastic strength building workout about 8 months ago, and I highly recommend it. I only do it once a week for about a half-hour (which feels like an hour), and the results are great. My abs, arms and legs are stronger and more toned, and my bone density has increased. — Traci P., Pacific Palisades
“The workout is demanding, but it is done in a very low-key, non-intimidating environment with one-on-one guidance and encouragement from Jeff.”
I’m a busy, soon-to-be 60 year-old physician, and I don’t have a lot of time to devote to exercise. I have been working out at The Workout Garage with Jeff Grossman for about 10 months, and the results have been great. I have realized incredible benefit in terms of gaining strength and improved balance. I do a lot of stair climbing in my job, and it has gotten much easier. The workout is demanding, but it is done in a very low-key, non- intimidating environment with one-on-one guidance and encouragement from Jeff. And a really great benefit is his scheduling flexibility, which has allows me to be consistent in exercising even though my work schedule can frequently change. I also feel comfortable that he is close to my age. — Elizabeth K., Palisades Palisades
“After nine sessions, I feel stronger, toner and see a big difference. I plan on staying with it.”
I have done a lot of weight training but this has been the best experience. Jeff is great! It is only 30 minutes but intense, and he guides you through each exercise. I was skeptical, but this is the real deal. it's a rotation of five different machines and two floor exercises done slowly to get the best benefit. Lower risk of injury with this method which was one of the reasons I initially tried it. After nine sessions, I feel stronger, toner and see a big difference. I plan on staying with it. — Mary Ann R., Pacific Palisades
"Jeff's workout is such an asset for our middle-aged bodies."
"Jeff's workout is such an asset for our middle-aged bodies. If you are looking to retain and build lean muscle mass in a very effective way that doesn't take a lot of time out of your schedule, I highly suggest his training. His passion, expertise and care will inspire you to stay strong and healthy!" — Christina B., Malibu
"...the results have honestly been much better than I expected."
"I am a local senior who was recovering from cancer a little over a year ago. I had lost a lot of weight and was extremely weak. Jeff assured me that "slow-motion, high-intensity weight training" would be safe and effective. I have been doing the workouts for over a year and the results have honestly been much better than I expected. I am stronger now than my pre-cancer days. Also, 25 minutes once a week is a routine I have been able to stick with." — Cathy R., Pacific Palisades
"...the best part is that I know I am doing something good for myself."
“I am a 67 year-old man who has exercised somewhat reluctantly even though I know about the need and the benefits of regular exercise. My wife has been doing Jeff’s program for over a year and has been urging me to give it a try. I really resisted for a long time but finally decided to go for it. I find that I actually look forward to it and am constantly challenging myself to do better. 25 minutes, once a week. And the best part is that I know I am doing something good for myself.” — Ruben R., Pacific Palisades
