The Private Gym Complete Training Program significantly improved sexual performance for the participants and demonstrated the following results:
The study demonstrated in a clinical setting that pelvic floor muscle training with resistance improves erectile function in men with or without ED. This clinical study was the first to show results in men without ED.
It also measured subjective factors, such as improved sexual confidence and ability to please their partners.
This result supports research demonstrating the positive impact of exercise on the human psyche but extends it to sexual performance.
The trial was conducted by The Erectile Dysfunction Foundation and overseen by Paul Nelson, Clinical Sexuality Educator and Clinical Medical Assistant at Mt. Sinai Men's Health Center, New York, and Dr. Grace Dorey, who is a leading expert on pelvic floor physiotherapy and the author of numerous studies, including the most prominent clinical study of its kind: Pelvic Floor Exercises for Erectile Dysfunction, published in the British Journal of Urology International in 2005.
"Women typically get all the sexual therapy and none of the drugs, while men receive all the drugs but almost none of the therapy. This program combines solid medical intervention and heightens men's sexual awareness and connection to their bodies."
- Paul Nelson
"This study proves that when men couple pelvic floor exercises with weighted resistance, they experience improvement in sexual performance."
- Dr. Grace Dorey
The randomized study comprised thirty men aged 24-65. The participants ranged from completely healthy men with no sexual dysfunction symptoms to those who reported mild erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and decreased sexual performance. In addition, all participants in the study completed the Private Gym Complete Training Program.
Before starting the program and after each week, the program coordinator obtained objective and subjective metrics from the participants.
Objective metrics included assessment of the strength of the pelvic muscles via anal manometry measuring 1-second, 3-second, and 10-second contractions, with a recording of average and peak contraction magnitude.
Additional objective metrics involved using a goniometer to measure the penile-pubic angle at full erectile rigidity both with and without a maximum pelvic muscle contraction and the duration of the hold of the erection with maximal pelvic muscle contraction.
Subjective measures included an extensive multiple-choice questionnaire, written commentary, and interviews.
