Personal Training focuses 100% attention on you and your health and fitness - providing you with the education & support you need to set clear goals and take safe, effective and consistent action toward achieving them.
As an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, a comprehensive approach is taken in creating balanced programs that include cardiovascular training, strength training, flexiblity training and basic nutrition guidance. The on-on-one attention you receive gives you a profile of your body today - cardiovascular health, muscle mass, postural habits, body composition, and energy levels. From there, compare your results to suggested norms and decide what you'd like to accomplish. You'll learn the proper form, breathing & pace to exercise correctly, achieve success (yeah!) and work toward correcting any imbalances you might have along the way.
Are you an athlete working to excel at your game and to provide balance to over worked areas? Are you preparing for your wedding, reunion, or other special event? Whether you are just looking for a way to keep your active lifestyle fresh & fun while building in some definition or are exercising for weight loss and health related reasons, your plan is custom designed specifically for you. Your goals, your interests, your preferences and your input are what will create a program that is both effective and enjoyable!
Personal Training programs begin with a Design Session including:
- Health & Lifestyle Questionnaire
- Basic Fitness Testing for Strength, Flexibility & Cardiovascular Health
- Blood Pressure & Resting Heart Rate
- Simple Postural Analysis
- Body Fat Evaluation (optional)
- Goal Setting & Program Design
- Home Gym Equipment Recommendation & Space Evaluation (optional)
- Medical Clearance & Follow-up as Necessary. Medical Clearance is determined based on ACE (American Council on Exercise) Certified Personal Trainer guidelines.
All programs begin with a Design Session. Along with your fitness assessment and goal setting, any health challenges or risk factors will be discussed. As necessary, medical clearance may be required from your physician for preventative input on modifications, restrictions and recommendations. If you are working with other practitioners, physical therapists, etc.. we will team up to co-ordinate a comprehensive plan to ensure smooth transitions where necessary.
Integrative plans may include yoga, pilates or a coaching component to help support you in staying motivated and achieving goals set for outside your training session. Referrals to other practitioners may also be given to offer you the right support and guidance for areas outside the scope of this practice. With over a decade of experience in a wide range of fitness & coaching modalities, I share resources for deeper learning with other specialists in these areas, and for related fields such as nutritionists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, therapists, podiatrists, etc..
