We can see “Four Minute Workout
” centers springing up all over:
In the amount of time it takes to change into your gym clothes and lace up your sneakers, Paul Bahder, a local doctor who practices preventative medicine and homeopathy, says you can have a complete workout.
Dr. Bahder is part-owner of a new business called The Four Minute Workout, which employs a ROM — Range of Motion — machine at its Montgomery Professional Center location.
By requiring more muscle cells to mobilize, Dr. Bahder said, less time needs to be spent working those muscles. The machine, Dr. Bahder said, engages the three aspects of fitness — aerobic, strength and flexibility. It is the equivalent of 20 to 45 minutes of aerobic exercise, plus 45 minutes of weight training, topped off with 15 to 20 minutes of stretching, said Dr. Bahder.
The doctor describes the machine as looking like a "cross between a middle-age torture machine and a Harley Davidson motorcycle. It is the only machine of its kind in the tri-state area available for public use”, Bahder said.
