We don’t simply set up equipment and turn you loose with an “okay, buddy, good luck!” Our clients come to our fitness center because they need guidance and support to meet their goals. That’s why we work with you to create a personalized fitness plan and every step of the way to meet your goals. Our programs are designed to keep you motivated by having fun and achieving results. Our trainers aren’t here to yell at you, but rather to encourage you.
A well-defined process, and sticking to it, is the key to success when it comes to meeting your fitness goals.
Here are some of the key components of how we design your fitness program:
We meet with you to determine your specific fitness needs. If you’re looking for faster weight loss, we focus more on conditioning. However, if your goal is build lean muscle we focus on strength training. It’s not up to us to decide what you’re looking for from your fitness program. We’re here to provide the coaching, motivation, and plan you need to get there.
This next step is a critical part in the process. We take a look at your lifestyle (work, home-life, hobbies, etc.) to determine which areas may pose unique difficulties in you achieving your fitness goals. For example, if you have a job that requires you to sit all day, you may experience more tightness in your hamstrings and lower back or protracted shoulders. Knowing these things allows us to work with you to develop these potential problem areas and create total body wellness.
We use a combination of your weight, circumference measurements and bioimpedance testing to determine your lean body mass to fat ratio. From this we can work toward setting your ideal goal. Decreasing your body fat percentage is responsible for that lean, toned body and overall health.
Our movement assessment is specifically designed to identify tight/inhibited and weak muscles. We also test your upper and lower body, as well as your core, strength. This is also the point where we develop a timeline to achieve your goals. A timeline is a critical aspect of setting goals for yourself as it keeps you motivated by giving you something to look forward to by a specific point.
When it comes to meeting your fitness goals, nutrition is an absolutely essential aspect. For example, if your goal is to gain muscle rather than to lose weight, your diet plan is going to look very different. That is why nutrition and personal training go hand in hand. Our nutritionists will work with you to find the perfect balance of fat, protein, and carbohydrates to meet your fitness goals.
Our app works in conjunction with your personalized plan — or as a standalone product — to keep you on track of your fitness and nutrition goals, even if you can’t make it into the gym. To find out more about how our app can work with your plan click here.
