TRAINERS


Melinda Hughes

Melinda Hughes opened The Strength Shoppe in 2011 to bring the benefits of high-intensity strength training to Pasadena, California. A nutrition student who followed a healthy, balanced diet and diligently spent an hour each day on an elliptical machine as a complement to traditional weight training (10.5 hours of exercise each week!), Melinda was in okay shape. After discovering SuperSlow® in 2007, she discovered that she could be in great shape by exercising only 20 minutes each week. After experiencing more energy during the day and a more restful sleep each night, she realized her knee pain had disappeared and her back was stronger. In fact, her scoliosis wasn't as pronounced because she had been able to safely correct muscular imbalances. Melinda holds a certification as a Nutrition Consultant from Hawthorn University, a holistic health institute dedicated to the ongoing education of health professionals. She advocates a balanced, active lifestyle with a whole foods diet and high-intensity strength training as the foundation for optimal health.


Diana Hufford

Diana Hufford has always been active. She began dancing at age four, played soccer and then added lacrosse in high school and college. In between seasons, she ran to stay in shape. After training for and completing one half marathon and two full marathons, she developed knee and hip pain. Around that time, a friend fortunately introduced her to SuperSlow®/Power of Ten strength training. Within six weeks of working out, she was surprised to feel herself getting stronger while her knee and hip pain disappeared. Diana was amazed to discover that, with only one or two focused 20-minute strength training sessions a week, she could effectively work her whole body and improve her muscle tone, while allowing her knees and hips to become stronger and heal. She is so happy to have finally found a safer, more effective and efficient way to stay in shape and now helps her clients achieve their goals of building strength, losing weight, increasing resistance to injury, and improving their overall health and fitness.


Zach Lewis

Zach Lewis has long been an advocate of healthy living. He began his strength training career in 2003 at New York Health and Racquet in Lower Manhattan. After discovering the SuperSlow technique, he decided to focus on training clients exclusively in that method. He has had the distinct pleasure of working for two of the leading figures of slow-cadence, high-intensity weight training at their respective NYC-based facilities. The first was Fred Hahn (author of The Slow Burn Fitness Revolution) at Serious Strength. The second was Adam Zickerman (author of Power of 10) at InForm Fitness. Zach is passionate about exercise and truly enjoys helping clients meet their fitness goals. He is thrilled to be living in sunny California.
