Listening to Bob Kissel talk about MaxQ Fitness, the revolutionary workout program he created, it’s hard to believe that the results are possible. Just two days a week at 15 minutes per session? So what’s the catch? For many people, it sounds like a late night infommercial pitch.

Noel Flasterstein admits he was once one of those people. Flasterstein says he was overweight when he first met Kissel and didn’t think these kinsd of results were possible, especially in such a reduced timeframe. Flasterstein was an active guy who had tried Crossfit, biked, and practiced martial arts, but to lose 60 lobs in 90 days would be impossible, he thought.

Kissel liked the idea of a challenge and the skepticism only seemed to fuel his desire to prove Flasterstein wrong. Boy did he ever. Flasterstein lost 64.5 lobs in a little over three months, dropping his weight from a staggering 263 to 198.5. That equates to 24.5 % of his body weight, the most ever lost in the history of the Tampa Bay Biggest Loser Competition.

So how does it work?

Kissel’s patented system is designed with intelligent Adaptive Resistance Technology (ART) that automatically adjusts to your current strength levels so that you will maximize every repetition to your body’s current ability. Unlike stacked weight machines that push you as far as your strength allows only on the last rep, at MaxQ Fitness your first three repetitions are at 70-90% of your maximum strength, and when you reach 100%, resistance decreases as your body’s strength decreases.

The idea is to trigger the Anaerobic Energy System or that 90 second window where the Phosphagen and Glycogen-Lactic Acid energy systems fuel muscle at peak performance, Kissel says. With five computerized exercise machines and 8-15 reps per machine, he’s able to give a complete, full-body workout in just 15 minutes.

Here’s the even crazier part, Kissel’s clients wait 72 hours before hitting the weights again.

“These machines create microscopic tears in the muscle and it takes three days for muscle to build back stronger,” Kissel says. He also provides the cardio version of his strength workout.

To supplement the repairing and forming of new muscle tissue, Kissel prescribes a customized amount of protein every two hours, six times throughout the day.

“For a busy professional like me, Bob’s workout is awesome,” he said. “It doesn’t disrupt your day and is surprisingly affordable because it takes so little time twice a week.”
