Fitness Equipments

Don't just "workout" start training towards your goals!

Many approach working out as a task to do without much thought for planning. They categorize it in their minds as a punch list item, much like cleaning or shopping for groceries. However, this approach to fitness will often yield poor or limited results. Unlike other basic day-to-day tasks, exercise requires a honed technique to achieve the desired results. Personal trainers can develop a workout routine, meal plan, and overall strategy for achieving your individualized goals!

See better results sooner. Left to their own devices, many individuals wind up on cardio machines at the gym or listlessly moving from one piece of exercise equipment to another. I can ensure you will make the most of your time and maximize your time to see results.

Avoid injuries. I will teach you the right form and correct them as they go through the exercises, thereby reducing the risk of injuries.

 

Lose fat and gain muscle. Most people who embark on a fitness journey want to lose fat, build muscle, or both. However, not many know how to go about doing that. They may spend too long on cardio and not enough time strength training or vice versa. I'm trained to find the balance to burn fat while building lean muscle.

Break through plateaus. Even the most experienced gym-goer will encounter the dreaded plateau. Once the individual stops seeing results, his or her incentive to keep going to the gym will dwindle and he or she may stop working out altogether. I'm trained to identify new techniques to push beyond the plateau while keeping you motivated.

Set realistic goals. Nothing is more disheartening than failing to achieve a fitness goal. With enough failure, you may give up on your health and wellness objectives. However, sometimes a failed gym goal is a self-fulfilled prophecy. If the individual set a goal to lose 10 pounds in a week, he or she is asking for disappointment. A personal trainer can establish realistic and healthy fitness goals as well as help clients achieve them.

Keep you accountable. It is easy to fall off the wagon when no one holds you accountable. For example, it is easy for a person to roll over and turn off the alarm clock if no one is waiting. With a personal trainer, someone expecting you to arrive, which is a much better push to get up and get going.

Challenge to be better. When exercising alone, it is easy for people to fall into boring routines. I'm trained mix up workouts and bring new challenges to the table. Personal trainers are also cheerleaders pushing their clients to reach new personal records, whether it is a faster run time or a heavier weight lifted.

Establish lifelong exercise habits. Personal trainers help clients achieve fitness goals, but they also help them reevaluate how they view health and wellness. Personal trainers help their clients realize fitness should be a priority in their life—not an item to check off their to-do list. For example, some people struggle with physical limitations that make them believe they cannot exercise. A personal trainer can create a workout routine suited to their fitness level as well as establish small goals to help set them up for success.

Whether you are a seasoned athlete looking for something new or an exercise novice intimidated or overwhelmed, I'm here for you! I offer one on one training, small group training and virtual options. Let's start working towards your goals!

Stretch & Flexibility Coaching

Flexibility and stretching are integral parts of well-rounded fitness programs and vital to overall health and wellness. Many individuals may implement stretching routines, but few understand the tissues that are being affected by such routines. 

 

As a Stretching and Flexibility Coach (SFC) I can perform detailed assessments, have a knowledge of in-depth connective tissue systems, and possess a skilled approach to coaching assisted- & self-applied stretching techniques. 

 

Including integrated stretching (self-myofascial methods) along with assisted and self-stretching techniques designed and implemented after a comprehensive assessment of the myofascial system. 

 

A stretching program will be designed for the client to help improve, correct, and maintain -

•range of motion

•overall mobility

•adaptability to movement

•specific tissue mobility 

•stretch tolerance

•breathing

•quality of sleep

•tissue oxygenation

•hydration

•nutrition and waste removal

 

An advanced assisted stretching program is designed for the purpose of improving, maintaining, and optimizing overall fitness in general and mobility and flexibility in particular. On top of the benefits listed with self - stretch programs. Advanced assisted stretching programs are design to build, repair and improve -

•postural alignment

•length-tension relationships

•osteokinematics & arthrokinematics

•movement patterns

•strength and mobility imbalances

•poor dynamic stability

•balance.
