Happy first day of spring! ๐ŸŒผ


As the weather starts to warm up and the days get longer, it’s the perfect time to focus on your fitness and start incorporating some new challenges into your routine. And, if you’re a Megaformer enthusiast like we are, you know that one of the key benefits of this amazing machine is the variable spring tension.

Here’s some of our favorite reasons why variable spring tension, and the way we utilize it here at InstaPhysique, is going to give you the most efficient and effective workout in only 40 minutes:

1. Variable spring tension allows you to perform movements that are difficult or impossible to perform with static weights. And, because the resistance is constantly changing, you’re able to load your muscles eccentrically, which means that they’re working as they lengthen. This is a highly effective way to build strength and muscle mass, and it can help prevent injury by strengthening the muscles at their end range of motion.

2. Variable spring tension allows you to perform a wider range of exercises than you would be able to with static weights. For example, on the Mega, you can perform exercises like lunges, squats, and planks with a wider range of motion than you would be able to with a traditional weight set. This means that you can target different muscle groups and increase the overall effectiveness of your workout.

3. Variable resistance also keeps your muscles engaged throughout the entire movement. With static weights, there is often a “dead zone” where the weight is not providing any resistance. This can lead to a loss of tension in the muscles and a less effective workout. With variable spring tension, the resistance is constant throughout the entire movement, ensuring that your muscles are working hard the entire time.

So why not make this spring the season of transformation and take your fitness to the next level? Join us in Sacramento or Roseville, and let’s put the spring in your spring! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒป
