With the ever-increasing desire to get in shape comes new and more innovative ways to do so. La Jolla is home to a wide range of cutting-edge fitness concepts, each with its own unique approach and each able to get you looking and feeling your best. La Jolla Today will feature a different fitness-related business in the coming issues. Be sure to check back often to find the right fit for your lifestyle and goals.

A personalized, high-tech, high-intensity workout in a fraction of the time is to be had at La Jolla Wellness Studio.

The cutting-edge studio at 7660 Fay Ave., Suite F is the “calculus” of physical fitness, employing the MyoMetrix Method.

MyoMetrix scientifically measures a number of body factors, including body fat and muscle mass, to create an efficient workout pinpointing body areas needing improvement.

“You will achieve the same outcomes in 15 minutes that you would achieve in 60 minutes at the gym,” said La Jolla Wellness general manager Ted Barduson. “Our patent-pending process results in verifiable outcomes where members achieve remarkable decreases in body fat and increases in lean muscle mass.”

Barduson said nationwide studies have shown only 8 percent of the population does regular physical fitness workouts. He said there are three primary reasons why people don’t work out: They don’t have the time. They don’t like going to a gym. They don’t like focusing only on weight control.

So Barduson set out to find ways to clear those hurdles by pioneering a method to provide a more efficient workout in less time in a more casual setting.

He’s achieved all that at La Jolla Wellness.

Much more like an office than a gym, the carpeted space at La Jolla Wellness is dominated by three machines: a scale-like device measuring fat, water content and muscle mass; a vibrating therapeutic sound apparatus; and what’s been referred to as “the beast,” the big all-in-one-workout machine that users work out on while having their performance measured in real time.

The La Jolla Wellness Myo-Metrix workout also involves a “cooling down” period, during which a person is subjected to a relaxing, spa-like mechanical massage while in a prone position.

Barduson said MyoMetrix does one other thing that gyms don’t, which is to balance an individual’s biochemistry. He said the MyoMetrix system adjusts the level of two body chemicals — cortisol, a stress hormone, and lactic acid produced during stressful workouts, both of which inhibit muscular development. 

Biomechanical manipulation maximizes performance, allowing users to achieve better results in less time via a more efficient workout.

“We reduce your cortisol and your lactic acid to prepare your muscles for the most efficient workout,” said Barduson, who extended an invitation for people to come in and try out his new high-tech workout system.
