Most people know their shoe size, so why don’t they know their fitness level? Alex Astilean, the owner of SpeedFit in East Hampton, thinks everyone should. According to Mr. Astilean, a brief fitness routine based on running as fast as possible will produce better results than running longer or for longer distances, which he said wears the body out.

Alex Astilean has impressive credentials as a former world-class athlete. Hailing from Romania, his reputation as a physical trainers has been growing since he came to the United States in 1990. After training stars like Cindy Crawford, Matthew Broderick and Vanessa Williams in his own training facility in the Hamptons, he concentrated his efforts on developing a new fitness routine based on 10-minute sessions of speed running in intervals, which he had been honing for 8 years.
Astilean’s system is called “SpeedFit”, and it was shaped by the philosophy that too much exercise wears out the body rather than keeping it fit.
Most people increase the distance that they run or walk to burn more calories, but this can ruin the body; instead, one should increase the speed in place of distance to achieve a more effective workout.

Astilean Advocates Short, Low-Impact Workouts.
The decathlon, Astilean says, was a two-day event. “The first day it’s the 100, the long jump, the shot-put, the high jump, and the quarter-mile. The second day it’s the 110- meter hurdles, the discus, the pole vault, the javelin, and the 1,500, which is almost a mile. You end with that. And then, of course, you have to warm up for each event. You lose 15 pounds in those two days.”
