Injury Prevention

Research says that the only predictor of future injury is previous injury. It is critical to ensure that the body is strong enough, and moving well enough to meet the demands placed on it.  Regaining full function after injury ensures decreased likelihood of re-injury or additional injuries occuring as you return to those activities you enjoy.  If you have been advised to avoid certain activities, that doesn't mean that you can't be active anymore.  There is always something you can do within your abilities and restrictions that can keep you moving better and stronger.  Working with a trainer can help you get creative to ensure your quality of life changes as little as possible. 

General Fitness/Mobility

Keeping a multidimensional training program is imperative to ensure the body is utilizing all of it's potential to optimize not only your workouts, but your athletic ability.  This multi-dimensional program must include strength, enurance, mobility, and stability.  Often times people are missing one or more of these components in their regular routines. 

Older Adult Fitness 

Falls occuring later in life are often associated with debilitating injury that lead to progressively decreasing quality of life.  As we age, strength, balance, and mobility become even more important to help reduce the stress on muscles and bones.  This not only prevents falls, but improves daily function and enables you to continue to be active in the activities that make life enjoyable.  There are fall risk assessments that can be performed to determine if you are at risk of falls, and can help you and your trainer properly focus your program.  

Exercise Rookies

  ​​​Whatever your motivation is to start exercising or exercising after a long break, moving well must proceed moving more.  Doing too much too soon and improperly, can lead to injury can often causes acitivity limitations that can slow down the process of raeching your goals.  Working with a personal trainer that has a background in biomechanics can help you start and progress your exercise program safely and effecitvely to help reach your goal efficiently.  

Adolescent Athletes 

Due to early specialization of sports, adolscents are beginning to experience injuries that had previously not been seen until adulthood.   A variable training program is necessary for these kids to continue to excel in their sport without risk of injury.  Your child can not only become a better athlete, but last longer in their sport.  

Functional Training

The definition of functional training depends on who you are referring to.  This simply means that you are training for the functions that you perform on a daily basis.  It may mean exercises that will help  with daily activities like walking, doing laundry, or carrying groceries.  If you are younger and more active, that means exercises that are focused on things like running, jumping, agility, speed, and or specific movements related to your sport or leisure activites.  Your program will be catered to your goals based on your specific needs.
