New Fitness Studio Opening in Conshohocken

A brand new fitness studio is about to open in Conshohocken.  Scott and Leslie Sorkin, owners of Tone Zone, are opening Afterburn, which features a workout “specifically designed to help you burn the most fat for the longest period of time during and after the workout is finished.”

To achieve this, Afterburn has combined the elements of the most effective workouts in the country with the most advanced fitness machines available.  Afterburn features Woodway treadmills, which are considered the Rolls Royce of treadmills, and Versaclimber machines. Versaclimber was recently in the news because Matt Damon used this single machine to get ripped for Bourne 5.

What makes this workout so effective?  Scott Sorkin shared four facets that make it successful:

The Dynamic Duo

High intensity cardiovascular activity alone will help you burn calories.  Combine that with targeted strength training, and you’re going to burn fat. The right kind of strength work can kick your body’s repair cycle into hyper-drive mode.  Meaning, you can actually continue to burn fat for 24-36 hours after your workout is finished (i.e. Afterburn).

Intervals within Intervals

A portion of each workout is spent running, lifting and climbing. Within each of those intervals, you’ll be changing your pace to alternate bursts of intensity with active rest. This will ensure you torch the most calories and fat during and after the workout. These intervals within each main interval will help you get the most out of each session.

The Secret Weapon

The Versaclimber.  There is NO cardio exercise or machine that will have you burning more calories.  It forces your upper and lower body to work equally hard, while keeping your body in perfect alignment.  You’ll get the most complete full-body workout of any other piece of equipment.  The best part is that it is extremely low impact, so as hard as it forces you to work, you’ll always be able to come back for more.

Accountability (see photo below)

Heart monitors will help keep you in the right zone for the right amount of time to ensure that you’re pushing hard enough to maximize your workout.  You’ll see your heart rate on our TV monitors throughout your workout.  So will our trainers, who will encourage you along the way.
