Concept 10 10 takes on tennis for a win

A powerful swing in just minutes, that’s what Pernille Albrechtsen gets out of her Concept 10 10 training.

Albrechtsen’s tennis team won for the first time in years at a tournament held at the Dunes Tennis Club, located in the North Naples community where she lives.

Albrechtsen, now a local 2012 season tennis champ, has only been playing tennis at the Dunes for about two years. She did not play the sport at all prior to joining up with her tennis partner Gail Tipito with the Collier Tennis Association.

Pernille and her husband Jorgen Albrechtsen were opening the Concept 10 10 location at the same time she was getting started in the game. The club was set up and operational for the second season of tennis.

Pernille Albrechtsen started working out at Concept 10 10  for 20 minutes about every five to seven days– soon it was even less than 20 minutes per session as her weight was maximized on several of the six machines. Learn about those workout specifics here.

“I’m faster on the court. I can move around and I don’t get tired. Now, I’m stronger than the other girls are. I don’t get injuries the way the other girls do, but I did the first year,” she said.

Albrechtsen suffered a hamstring injury that she attributes in-part to jumping into the game without  building up the proper strength.

“You’re not getting stronger playing tennis at the level we’re playing. You’re standing still. Then, when you set off to run after the ball, you’re more likely to get injured,” she said.

Albrechtsen isn’t taking that risk anymore. She admits with a laugh that there are days she wishes the leg press were broken. Despite the fact that it takes only about three minutes or less on each machine, it is tough.

The Dunes tennis team, including 2012 Collier County champion partners Pernille Albrechtsen and Gail Tipito, bring their community’s team up a notch after a win that Pernille attributes in-part to strength training 20 minutes each week for one year at Concept 10 10.

“I know I have to do Concept 10 10 High Intensity Training because it gives me the strength, the power. The better you are at those hard, deep strokes, the opponents can’t take it.”

Another great advantage to her game was that lingering frequent bouts of back pain were alleviated by strength training on the lower back machine at Concept 10 10.

Pernille has always been active. She’s a certified aerobics instructor, fitness trainer and trained more than 200 other aerobics instructors. She also played badminton and handball, her favorite for years. She has the greatest strength of her life because of Concept 10 10.

Working out shouldn’t be a pain in the neck

 

Dr. Tracye Zlobl

Tracye Zlobl spent too much time in the doctor’s office. Sure, Tracye is a doctor, but still, enough was enough.

Dr. Tracye Zlobl is a 52-year-old OB/GYN practicing in Naples. She has enjoyed physical fitness almost her entire life. That was until earlier this year when neck and upper back pain left her unable to workout as frequently as she would like for nearly six months.

She was spending thousands of dollars and dozens of hours in other clinicians’ offices. Changing her fitness routine from Pilates to Concept 10 10, saved her the hassle of spending all that time and money at the physical therapist’s, chiropractor’s and acupuncturist’s offices.

 

“I would get a little bit better, go back to Pilates, and re-injure myself,” Dr. Zlobl said of the frustrating cycle she had found herself in prior to Concept 10 10.

Now, however, Zlobl’s sessions of deep tissue massage are precipitated only by an appreciation for relaxation—not by any literal pain in the neck.

Zlobl learned about Concept 10 10 from a friend, a woman who is her client and used to do Pilates with her. Almost immediately the lack of impact and contact involved in Concept 10 10 attracted Zlobl. The relatively short time commitment of just 20 minutes each week was also appealing for the busy doctor.

Zlobl started with a free trial. She liked the cleanliness and set up of the fitness club. Her trainer, Peter, was professional and made her feel comfortable.

It was enough to attract her to buy a few more sessions. However, it wasn’t until her third week, or third session, that she was completely sold on it, she said. In total she worked out with Concept less than an hour at that point and saw more muscle tone and experienced more strength gain than at any of the multitude of exercise studios she experimented with over the years.

“Concept 10 10 literally saved me time and money,” she said.

Prevent unwanted weight gain and pain during pregnancy with Concept 10 10

It’s not only OK to remain physically fit during pregnancy it’s necessary for the health of mom and baby.
Concept 10 10 provides all the benefits of working out during pregnancy without any of the risks, said Jorgen Albrechtsen, founder and developer of Concept 10 10.

Andrea Compton stays fit

Keeping fit with children and while pregnant

A baby’s growth puts pressure on the mother’s hips, butt and back. When you exercise at Concept 10 10 during pregnancy, you improve your posture and get your back, hip, and butt muscles in shape, thus reducing back pain.
Naples resident Andrea Compton can attest to this.  The 30 year old mom is about 8 months pregnant with her second son.  Her first pregnancy came with intense, nearly constant back pain.  Trying to avoid pain again, Andrea signed up at Concept 10 10 about 6 months ago, and is now experiencing the benefits of not only building visible muscle tone, but also decreasing back pain. “I can only attribute it to Concept 10 10,” she said. Working full time and being mom to Preston, (1 year old), Andrea is pressed for time. At 20 minutes per week, Andrea finds Concept 10 10 easy to fit into her schedule.
Is that short time frame a cop out for a pregnant woman? No way! It’s what all clients do to stay in optimal shape and, due to Concept 10 10’s intensity, it’s plenty.

 

Unlike Andrea, it’s not uncommon for pregnant women to fear injury from working out. She knows now that Concept 10 10 provides the optimal environment for expectant mothers looking to get in shape and stay in shape because there is personal, one-on-one trainer always present to monitor proper movement. This ensures that all exercises are slow and controlled, while foregoing the impact or contact of many other sports and activities.
“Not only does Concept 10 10 present no risk of injury, it prevents risk of injury”, Jorgen said.
Pregnancy puts a lot of strain on the body, including carrying extra weight 24/7. A lot of women get permanent damage, such as varicose veins, because they are not strong enough to deal with it. Exercise prevents this.
“The worst thing you could do is do nothing thinking it’s protecting the fetus.” Jorgen said.
“You may shun normal sports to avoid risk of injury, but here at Concept 10 10 there is absolutely no risk of injury.”
Unlike tennis or any higher impact sport, Concept 10 10 is safe because there is no contact.
Due to the personal trainer, you won’t be left vulnerable to move in a way that could cause injury to yourself or the unborn baby.
There’s also a big difference between high-intensity and high-impact. Concept 10 10 is high-intensity, but minimal to no impact.
The benefits of working out at Concept 10 10 increased ease in getting back to pre-pregnancy weight and shape, particularly because of the boost in metabolism.

Regular exercise minimizes the likelihood of gaining too much weight during pregnancy, often reduces the duration of labor and frequently leads to a leaner healthy birth weight for the baby.
Pregnant women can keep up with their non-pregnant peers despite what their bodies are going through. There is only one machine that most pregnant women will find they can no longer use during the latter part of their pregnancy. The abdominal machine won’t be used about half-way into most pregnancies, Jorgen said.  Please consult your doctor prior to engaging in any fitness routine.
