The Science Behind MITxTreme™
MITxTreme™ solves the puzzle of rapid fat loss, strength and muscle gains, with minimal time and effort::
◦ What's the best exercise protocol to fire up the metabolism?
◦ What's the best diet to trigger massive fat loss?
◦ What's the best way to stimulate new muscle growth?
◦ What's the best way to diet and exercise without getting fatigued?
◦ What's the best way to accelerate muscle recovery after exercise?
◦ What's the best way to target the stubborn fat and not burn muscle while dieting?
◦ What's the best way to stave off hunger while dieting?
◦ What's the best way to increase cellular energy production?
MITxTreme™ combines cutting-edge exercise science and nutrition along with proprietary supplements to ramp up the metabolism for the most rapid fat loss while making continuous muscle, strength and endurance gains.

The 4 Components of MITxTreme™
MIT-C (Cardio) is an adaptation of the training protocol developed by Dr. Izumi Tabata which is clinically proven in a research study published in 1996 to burn MORE calories than any other aerobic activity.
In this landmark study, Dr. Tabata showed that short bursts of high intensity training had superior aerobic and anaerobic training effects compared to longer moderate intensity training.
Dr. Tabata divided elite athletes from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo Japan into two groups. Each group trained for 5 days a week on a mechanically braked cycle ergometer over a 6 week period. The first group trained at moderate intensity for 60 minutes 5 days a week. The second group trained using the 4-minute high-intensity protocol (e.g. 20 seconds at high intensity followed by 10 seconds of rest repeated 8 times).
At the end of the training period, Dr. Tabata found that the first group that trained at longer durations with moderate-intensity showed slight improvement in aerobic capacity but did not show any improvement to anaerobic capacity.
However, the test group that trained at short bursts of high-intensity showed improvement in both anaerobic and aerobic capacity. More interestingly, the second group showed superior training improvements compared to the first group.
Since this study was published, many athletes and trainers have adapted the training protocol used in this study as the basis of formulating their training programs. This is what is now known as “Tabata Training”.
For those that are not elite athletes, MIT-C (Cardio) is a proven system to safely and gradually build cardio endurance and overall fitness, based on the Tabata Protocol.
MIT-S (Strength) is the world’s fastest strength building protocol. Based on Shawn Bennett's original Measured Intensity Training™ system, it has been adapted for use with traditional fitness equipment, resistance bands, or even body weight exercises.
According to the latest research, partial ROM (range of motion) bench press performance increased significantly for both the 1RM (1 rep max) and 5RM (5 rep max) conditions. Studies on the bench press show an area of the ROM where maximal force is generated.
MIT-S utilizes the same 120-degree angle at elbow flexion for each exercise, which allows for maximum force and maximum muscle fiber recruitment. This remarkable 120-degree angle proved to be the best biomechanical position to perform a bench press in research conducted by WILSON, G.J., B.C. ELLIOTT, AND G.K. KERR. Bar path and force profile characteristics for maximal and submaximal loads in the bench press. Int. J. Sport Biomech. 5:390–402. 1989.
MIT-D (Diet) is based on Dr. Simeons' groundbreaking work in treating obesity. Decades of research and clinical trials along with tens of thousands of case studies show this diet system, consisting of real food eaten in specific proportions, triggers rapid fat loss and allows one to maintain one's new weight throughout life.
Every food was carefully evaluated for its affects on weight loss and fat metabolism. By eliminating all foods that are detrimental to the body's ability to burn fat, the most rapid fat loss occurred when following a very low calorie diet.
MIT-D triggers rapid fat loss while consuming more calories than Dr. Simeons' protocol allows when combined with the other components of the MITxTreme™ Program.
MIT-V (Vitamins/Supplements) is a proprietary regimen of all-natural, homeotherapeutic dietary supplements each designed to address a specific metabolic function necessary for energy production, cellular health, fat loss, endurance and muscle and strength gains.
Since rapid fat loss can only occur when cardio endurance, muscle strength, cellular energy production and metabolism are all functioning at their peak, each MIT-V supplement provides what's needed to make MITxTreme™ the World's Fastest Body Transformation Program.
