Why it works
Our dynamic, high-intensity classes activate both fast and slow twitch muscle fibers. Most training techniques solely activate slow twitch fibers, the muscles that give us the endurance to grind away on the elliptical or treadmill for endless minutes with limited results.
This means a portion of your muscles are unused while you exercise. Fast twitch fibers are used for explosive movements. These muscles actually consume more energy and continue to burn more calories long after the workout is done and provide the greatest results.
High intensity training unleashes your fast twitch muscles and opens the door to greater strength and results!!

My journey with Ripped PHL My journey, or as I like to call it, my enlightenment with Ripped PHL started a couple of years ago when my favorite workout studio closed and I was grieving the loss (I know that sounds weird but Lithe Method was an amazing community for me) and I just wasn’t…
My fitness journey is really really long, so I’ll give you the short version. I was not really into fitness that much in high school. I quit gym class as soon as it became “optional”. I did cheerleading, which I loved, but I got mad at my coach when he made us run and I believe I…
As a former D1 athlete, I have really struggled post-college to find work outs that are both challenging and interesting. I started doing RippedPHL about 1 year ago and I am absolutely hooked. The workouts are always so diverse; I love that you can go every day but always feel like you are doing something…
Fitness has been an integral part of my life for the past few years. I had been active my whole life, but by no means an athlete. I always had loved how a good workout made me feel. Unfortunately, as a physician, the ongoing demands of the profession often meant that fitness was placed on…
