If you believe in exercising to live and not living to exercise…then QuickHIT Fitness Labs is the place for you! If you’re the type of person that values time and is not interested in wasting it in the gym then QuickHIT is the place for you. QuickHIT has revolutionized a path to better Health and Wellness and is for everyone! It doesn’t matter if you’ve never exercised before or simply don’t have the time for 6 days a week in the gym. They guarantee results in as little as 20 minutes a week! 

Owners Lisa Dallas and Frank Ochoa started QuickHIT after undergoing injuries that hindered their ability to perform traditional exercise. “We used [QuickHIT] as a kind of [rehabilitation] towards getting stronger after injuries. Lisa had a double hip replacement from years of teaching competitive Tap and Jazz. Frank had a spinal bone fusion on his L4, L5 due to sustaining too many injuries from traditional sports and exercise. After experiencing one 20 minute session at QuickHIT they realized that it was something special. The technology that QuickHIT has, allowed us to exercise to our full capacity,” said Operating Partner, Frank Ochoa. Lisa and Frank immediately recognized how amazing this was and committed their futures to it. They believed in using their passion for fitness to help everyone find exercise no matter their physical ability. As natives of both St Louis, Missouri and Destin, Florida they decided to plant roots in Tampa Bay. They are now residents of Lakewood Ranch and look forward to opening their 4th location there in 2022. 

QuickHIT Fitness is an exercise facility that uses a state of the art patented resistance machine, along with certified personal trainers, to create a safe and effective workout. The Robotically Controlled Resistance machine adjusts to every user to ensure that they are receiving the best workout for their body and physical ability. “Our machine makes decisions every millisecond and millimeter of a movement, so that it is perfectly applicable to whomever the user is. So, it doesn’t matter if you are 17 or 70, whatever your current physical ability is, we can help you achieve your goals,” Frank explained. 

Client Carole M. shares her experience at QuickHIT by saying, “I am an overweight, 65-year-old woman who does work out regularly, but not as efficiently as QuickHIT works. I can build my strength and keep getting stronger as I age, instead of getting weaker! No need for sweatbands or shower afterward- you’re ready to go on with your day. The trainers keep your posture correct and ensure you’re working out safely! Try it now! 

Each session at QuickHIT is only 20 minutes long yet provides all the benefits that come with an intense workout. As well as this, clients only have to come 1,2 or 3 times a week in order to meet all of their personalized goals! Each workout helps clients improve muscle strength, lose weight, improve bone density, increase energy levels and improve cardiovascular fitness. The program at QuickHIT is even backed by medical doctors and exercise scientists.

“I have been using the QuickHIT program for 6 months and have noticeably more strength throughout my body. Lifting a 50-pound bag of softener salt is now effortless. For less than 20 minutes, one time a week, you cannot go wrong with this program,” said pleased client, Todd W. 

QuickHIT programs are perfect for those who are recovering from injuries and looking for a way to safely return to exercise. With slow, controlled movements and a personal trainer by your side the whole time, there is no doubt that QuickHIT is the safest way to reach your physical goals! This machine erases the dangers that come with weightlifting and other forms of tedious exercise.

Client Holly H. shared her positive experience with QuickHIT stating, “I was diagnosed with a herniated disc in my lower back a few years ago. It got to the point where I had to use a walker to get around. I did physical therapy, massage therapy and had medication, but it was not getting better. I started a new job in July 2018 and QuickHIT is on the 1st floor of the building I work in, so I figured I had no excuse! I decided to try it and I am amazed at the improvement to my quality of life since I started. I have never felt stronger, and I don’t have lower back pain anymore!”

QuickHIT Fitness provides a judgement free zone as they are “Tampa Bay’s only 100% completely private facility.” There is only one machine and one facility director in the entire studio, ensuring that you get complete and undivided attention when you are working out. All sessions are booked by appointment only, to make sure no one will be working out with you. All trainers work very hard to ensure a comfortable environment every time you walk through the doors!

QuickHIT Fitness prides themselves in following three pillars of health and wellness, which includes fitness, nutrition and accountability. Along with providing safe and effective workouts, QuickHIT also offers nutritional advice from certified dietitians. “You can’t out exercise poor nutrition,” Frank explains. A dietitian will work one-on-one with you to learn about your dietary needs and restrictions, to create a plan that will work best for you. QuickHIT does not force anyone to buy supplements or go on fad diets. Instead, they will work with you to figure out how you can improve your current nutrition to promote healthy muscle development. 

Everything at QuickHIT Fitness Labs is completely personalized to every client. Every new client will first go through a free consultation, before jumping into any of the exercise components. During this consultation, a personal coach will learn about your exercise history and any current or past injuries. Then, they will work with you to form personalized goals and work out plans. Your personal coach will also follow up with you after every workout to see how you are feeling to ensure proper recovery. 

Along with The Robotically Controlled Resistance machine, QuickHIT also utilizes a Body Kiosk System which helps clients learn more about their body! The Body Kiosk System completes a near- infrared scan of the body and can provide a client with their lean mass, fat mass, current body fat percentage, and resting metabolic rate. This machine helps clients to “understand where their caloric intake should be and how exercise and the actual macronutrients you eat go together,” says Frank. 

“QuickHIT is a great way to lose fat, gain muscle strength, and build lean muscle mass in 20 minutes. It’s a holistic approach with nutritional guidance. Also, the trainers are experienced and knowledgeable. They are sincere about helping you to meet your fitness goals. The best value I’ve ever gotten in the fitness industry. Best of all…it works! I love how my body has transformed and I look forward to making more gains,” says happy client, Frances Lewenstein. 

With the continuing spread of the COVID-19 virus, QuickHIT has many protocols in place to ensure the safety of both clients and staff. All staff members are required to wear a mask at all times and promote social distancing. Along with this, every area is disinfected after use and all clients are required to wash their hands once they enter.
