Continuing on our mission to help clients reach their health and fitness goals most efficiently and sustainably using a unique combination of technology found only at Quantify Fitness; we are incredibly excited to announce the addition of a new evidence-based piece of equipment!
The Vasper system combines compression, liquid cooling, and interval training to drive your body’s production of growth and recovery hormones, delivering the most significant benefits of high-intensity exercise in an efficient and low-impact 21-minute workout.
Over the first 15 months of using Vasper more than 3x weekly, I’ve gained 6 pounds of muscle, lost 14 pounds of fat, increased my testosterone score from 379 to 697, and have enjoyed the most relaxed, energized, creative, and productive period of my life. All of this at age 72.
Vasper is based on three scientifically proven principles – compression technology, cooling, and interval training. When all principles are working together, the results are extraordinary.
Compression and cooling create the effect of a high intensity (anaerobic) exercise without the time, effort, and muscle damage it takes to achieve the same results with conventional exercise. Instead of feeling tired and sore, Vasper leaves you energized and rejuvenated, alleviating your body aches and pains.
Placing compression on the arm and leg muscles while exercising at a low intensity has been scientifically shown to create the physiological effect of high intensity exercise.
Compression cuffs worn on the arms and legs safely compress the muscle to quickly build up lactic acid, mimicking the physiology of an intense workout that would typically take extensive time and effort.
Compression builds metabolite concentration quickly and activates fast twitch muscle fibers. This triggers a systemic recovery response, including the natural release of anabolic hormones such as testosterone.
When your body temperature increases, blood vessels near the surface of the skin dilate, increasing blood flow to the skin, leaving less blood and oxygen for the muscles. When there is not enough blood to remove lactic acid from the muscles, the body hits a wall and fatigues.
Remaining cool during exercise allows blood oxygen levels to remain high throughout the body which makes exercising much more efficient and pleasant. Sweating is also dramatically reduced or completely eliminated. Cooling the body during the workout mitigates further physical stress and reduces existing pain and inflammation.
Each Vasper protocol is a 21-minute interval training protocol, delivered on a tablet fully integrated with the recumbent bicycle. Interval training involves a warmup period followed by a succession of sprint and rest intervals, scientifically proven to increase the efficiency of an exercise session. Each section of the interval training protocol is fully customizable, allowing for adjustments in duration, intensity, resistance, and speed. The pressure and cooling can also be modified for ability, comfort level, and performance. Heart rate monitors and a graph of power output is displayed on screen to track performance. Session metrics are also displayed at the end of the workout and can be emailed directly from the tablet.
By using a NuStep T5XR, the Vasper is able to avoid stressing the body and breaking down muscle tissue. The goal with Vasper is to minimally stress the muscles while still triggering a systemic recovery response that can heal damaged or unconditioned areas of the body.
With Vasper, there’s a faster way to get an edge. In just 21 minutes, boost your anaerobic threshold and optimize your hormone balance for maximum strength and performance gains, all while avoiding the muscle and tissue damage that comes with over-training. Whether you’re an Olympic champion, a professional sports player, a cross-fit junkie, or fitness guru, Vasper can help you take your training to the next level.
With Vasper, exercise can be easy. Achieve the most significant health benefits of high-intensity exercise in just 21 minutes, without even reaching for a sweat towel. Plus, you’ll have more energy and sleep better too. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, support your mental health, or just squeeze a workout into your busy schedule, Vasper can help.
The best medicine doesn’t always come in a bottle. The body has an extraordinary natural ability to heal itself. Amplify your body’s biological repair and recovery response with an accessible, sweat-free, and low-impact 21-minute workout designed to help you heal faster. Research hospitals, physicians, physical therapists, injured athletes, and more are using Vasper with impressive results.
