What is the Private Gym?

It is a unique and innovative Kegel exercise programme designed to strengthen the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor supports vital organs including the penis, bladder and bowel. Strengthening it will help to combat/reverse erectile dysfunction, boost sexual performance, and support prostate and urinary health. The Private Gym programme is safe, easy to use and FDA registered.

How will I benefit from using the Private Gym?

By strengthening your pelvic floor with the Private Gym Kegel exercise programme, you can experience more powerful, longer-lasting erections, put a stop to premature ejaculation, and intensify orgasms. It will also assist with prostate health and bladder/bowel control.

How does the Private Gym work?

Like any type of exercise programme, the Private Gym works to increase strength, performance and stamina. Work out a muscle and it will get stronger, that’s all there is to it. The penis is controlled by the pelvic floor, so building strength in it could lead to more powerful, longer-lasting erections, as well as intensified orgasms.

We all want our penises to perform as they did when we were 20, and the only way to achieve that is to keep it in shape. Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles can improve sexual function, in the same way that fitness training can enhance athletic performance and endurance. It can also decrease recovery time (amount of time it takes to achieve another erection).

Additionally, it will help to maintain the correct functioning of the bladder/bowel and will assist in keeping the prostate healthy.

Isn't Kegel exercise for women?

Kegel exercise is just as beneficial for men as it is women. Although not quite so well documented, performing pelvic floor exercises provides parallel health benefits for urinary and sexual health. Unfortunately, too many men are unaware of this. Up until now, there has not been an interactive male Kegel exercise programme which demonstrates how to perform these exercises.

Who should use the Private Gym?

All men can benefit from using the Private Gym, whether currently experiencing a problem, or merely taking preventative measures for the future.

Beginning in our early 30s, the pelvic floor muscles start to weaken. By the age of 40, more than 50% of men are already starting to experience some form of erectile dysfunction. There’s no need to simply accept it as the inevitability of growing older. In just 10 minutes a day, three days a week, you can safely and naturally boost your sexual performance.

It’s vital that we don’t neglect the muscles that matter; those responsible for sexual, bladder and bowel function.

Why is a strong pelvic floor so important?

The importance of the pelvic floor should never be underestimated. It is a complex network of muscles and fibres that stretches like a tight sling from the pubic bone to the coccyx, supporting the penis, bladder and bowel. A strong pelvic floor is vital for enabling these organs to carry out their job effectively.

The pelvic floor is responsible for causing a surge of blood flow to the penis during an erection. Contracted muscles also restrict the blood flow back out, thus enabling it to maintain rigidity for longer.

Strengthening the pelvic floor may also help to alleviate or improve the symptoms of a variety of different disorders; including, prostate inflammation; stress incontinence; bladder control issues and urinary incontinence; and impairments resulting from saddle sports, including bicycling, motorcycling, and horseback riding.1

How do I locate my pelvic floor muscles?

If you don’t know where your pelvic floor is; don’t worry, you’re not alone! Many men are completely unaware that they even have pelvic muscles, let alone where they are and what they do. To effectively locate these muscles, merely stop yourself from urinating mid-flow next time you go to the toilet, or squeeze to stop yourself from passing wind. The muscles that you use to do so are contained within the pelvic floor. With age, these muscles will deteriorate, which in many cases can lead to erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and impaired prostate or bladder/bowel weakness.

How does the Private Gym prevent premature ejaculation?

A strong pelvic floor can help to put a stop to premature ejaculation. Having greater muscular control over the pelvis will enable you to retain better control over when you ejaculate. Conversely, a weak muscle structure affords little control. Rebuilding strength in the pelvic floor using the Private Gym programme can also help to restrict blood flow out of the penis, thereby delaying orgasm further.

How does the Private Gym create more powerful orgasms?

The pelvic floor muscles are responsible for releasing semen from the prostate gland and for the pulsating sensation during orgasm. A strong pelvic floor has the ability to create powerful contractions that propel the semen from the penis with great force. This results in intense and longer lasting orgasms.

How does the Private Gym support prostate and urinary health?

The pelvic floor supports the prostate and bladder. When the muscles lack tone and strength it can result in prostate inflammation, post-void dribbling or urinary/stress incontinence. With the Private Gym you are able to rebuild strength in order to improve overall bladder and prostate health.

What is the difference between the Private Gym's Basic Training and Complete Training exercise programmes?

The Private Gym offers two exercise programmes – Basic Training and Complete Training.

The Basic Training programme features a series of specialised exercises, specifically designed for those that wish to build initial strength in their pelvic floor.

In addition to Basic Training, the Complete Training programme features revolutionary resistance training. With the Private Gym’s FDA registered exercise equipment included, it will really help you to maximise strength and further improve sexual performance.

Why is resistance training important?

Resistance training is the best way to increase strength in any muscle. If you think about performing bicep curls without the weights; yes your muscles may become tired, but they won’t become significantly stronger over time. Pelvic floor training is exactly the same. Only using our innovative FDA registered equipment will you be able to achieve maximum muscle strength.

How do I use The Private Gym resistance training equipment?

Simply place the Private Gym’s ultra-soft resistance equipment on your erect penis, just below the head. Lift up and down by contracting the pelvic floor muscles. This places resistance on the muscles, maximising strength.

Does the Private Gym resistance training equipment fit all penis sizes?

Yes. No matter what your size, the Private Gym Resistance Equipment is designed to fit you. Cleverly crafted, a flexible, soft silicone band opens and closes, gently gripping the shaft of your penis.

When and where do I perform my Private Gym exercises?

In order to focus properly and correctly follow your Basic Training programme, we recommend that you sit upright in a comfortable chair. However, it is also possible to do your Kegel exercises lying down or standing up. An erection is not required for this type of exercise, however it certainly won’t do any harm. Ideally, we suggest that you perform these exercises three to four times a week, but please refrain from doing so two days in a row; your muscles need time to recover in order to achieve optimum results.

When you have built up initial strength in your pelvic floor and are ready for the Resistance Training programme, you will need an erection in order to use the specialised equipment. Some men may choose to do their resistance training prior to masturbation.

What if I am already taking erectile dysfunction medication?

There’s no need to worry if you have already started taking medication for erectile dysfunction; the Private Gym is designed to work in conjunction with it. Our programme has been specifically developed to help prevent and reverse the onset of erectile dysfunction that occurs as a result of pelvic floor weakness. This can reduce the need for medication in the future.

Is the Private Gym safe?

The Private Gym programme is FDA registered and safe; however, it is vital that you follow the instructions carefully. There may be some instances where this type of exercise is not recommended, so please check with your GP before beginning the programme.

Who developed the Private Gym programme and why?

Developed alongside some of the world’s leading urologists and sexual therapists, the Private Gym team is headed up by Dr. Andrew Siegel, renowned urologist, surgeon, professor, and author of Male Pelvic Fitness: Optimizing Sexual and Urinary Health. Dr. Siegel discovered that there were a variety of health benefits to be gained for men by simply performing pelvic floor exercises. He was surprised to learn that many men didn’t even know they could exercise these muscles. As such, he recognised the need for a comprehensive programme to teach us exactly how this could be done.

Is the Private Gym scientifically proven?

Absolutely! The science behind the Private Gym is very simple; you exercise a muscle and it gets stronger. That really is all there is to it. Stronger pelvic floor muscles mean powerful, long-lasting erections, improved bowel/bladder control, improved prostate health and enhanced sexual performance.
The pelvic floor muscles play a critical role in supporting erectile function. In the most comprehensive study of its kind, 76% of men saw a significant improvement in their erectile function with pelvic muscle exercises.2
Use of the Private Gym is also supported by many leading urologists.

How long does it take to see results?

You’ll be surprised at just how quickly you’ll see results with the Private Gym. The two expertly designed programmes will get to work in a matter of weeks. For best results, follow the exercise routine.
