    Chiselled is a 10 week program focused on changing your body shape and increasing your muscle definition. Each Chiselled work out is focused on high repetition, low resistance training, combined with light plyometric and cardiovascular exercises. The Chiselled program will increase your lean muscle mass, burn fat, and accelerate your metabolism.

    The Science.......How can the Chiselled program change my body shape?

    The key focus of the Chiselled program is accelerating your metabolism (metabolic rate) by increasing your lean muscle mass which will help you burn fat, increase your muscle definition and re-shape your body.

    The high repetition, low weight resistance training will ensure optimal muscle fiber recruitment, muscle fatigue and tissue breakdown necessary for developing lean muscle.
