Efficient • Evidence-Based • Highly Trained Expert Instructors
The Strength Shoppe specializes in high-intensity strength training that anyone (yes really, that includes you) can do. This form of personal training is commonly referred to as SuperSlow®, Power of Ten, or Slow Burn and it’s revolutionary. Why?
High-intensity strength training is a safer, more effective, more efficient form of exercise. The complete total body workout lasts only 20 minutes once a week. Through compound movements on specialized equipment, the maximum benefits desired from exercise are achieved in minimal time.
Lifting weights slowly reduces the force on your joints and connective tissues. Working without momentum ensures you are always in control of the weight, eliminating risk of injury.
Only muscle, not momentum, is used to lift the weight, deeply working the muscle.
Due to the effectiveness of lifting without momentum, the goal of weight lifting, muscle fatigue, is achieved in a shorter workout.

Simply the Best Personal Training in Pasadena and Echo Park/DTLA
The Strength Shoppe is what we call our personal training gyms in Pasadena and Echo Park/DTLA and we’re proud that they are among the best and most effective personal training facilities anywhere.
Through our personal training program, exercise to the intensity of muscle failure will thoroughly exhaust the muscle and create a stimulus to which the body must adapt. Your program will be customized specifically for you by a professionally trained and certified specialist and will include nutritional protocol and recovery advisement. Our program requires adequate nutrition and a sufficient recovery period for the body’s muscles to overcompensate for this intense exertion and become stronger. Most weight training programs do not offer the body this increased stimulus and thus do not require such a rest period.
The truly wonderful thing about our workout is that anyone can do it. Whether you are a professional athlete or suffering from a debilitating condition such as osteoporosis, this workout can make a real difference in your life. Whether your goal is to lose weight or lower your blood pressure, this workout will help you achieve your goals. And because it’s only 20 minutes once a week, chances are you’ll be able to stick with it and adopt it as part of your lifestyle. Many people do not reach or maintain their fitness goals because they are unable to stick to their regimen. But who doesn’t have 20 minutes once a week to devote to their health?
