This week in Episode # 52 we are excited to bring you our guest Andrei Yakovenko. Andrei is the founder and lead coach of New Element Training in Toronto Canada. At New Element Training they center their approach around three key components: Technique, Intensity, and Consistency.
The New Element Training environment is designed to be distraction-free: there are no mirrored walls, no pounding music, no split television screens. An essential part of their training protocol is to stay fully focused on the physical work being done over the entire 30-minute session. It is a way of harnessing the power of ones mind in the transformation of the body by paying attention, by maintaining perfect form to optimize your efforts, and by using precise, controlled movements to keep your body safe. Producing the all-out effort required to access and fatigue the targeted muscles in each exercise takes intense concentration.
The New Element approach translates cutting edge academic research into a practical, time-efficient, safe mode of exercise that produces results … fast.
TAKU’s NOTE: Jesse and I really enjoyed our time speaking with Andrei. He is a very thoughtful coach who has truly created a unique training environment and experience for his clients at New Element.
