This seems a weird comment coming from someones who makes his living from the Fitness Industry. However please understand what the point of getting up in the early hours too run outside in the Wellington southerly, is to be able to apply a stress on the body so it recovers to be fitter/leaner/faster etc. To me, exercising is about the outcome, not the process. If I was doing 10 hours of exercise per week and I wasnt getting a result, I would really question if I was doing the right thing. Or better yet, if I was to get the same fitness and stay at the same weight by doing only 5 hours, what was the point of doing the additional 5? You simply have taken out 5 hours off potential recovery (and we all need to sleep more).
For us at Studio41, exercise is about the outcome. Not just plying more and more exercise onto someone. It sounds very simply, we measure, try something, measure again, learn and go again. If someone is moving toward their goal on 4 hours of exercise per week, 5 may not get them there faster.
So many people do not get results from exercise, so the only answer for them is to do more. For us it is about looking at your ability to recover from the exercise we give. If you are not sleeping for example, this is the first thing that has to be looked at, not doing more exercise (which will only make the situation worse).
I see so many people going into a gym and really not utilising their time well (their social media accounts get well read or updated though). We at Studio41 really want you to do as little as possible and get the biggest result. So training hard is one thing, but how we train smart takes Studio41 to a whole new level.
