Personal training / Strength and Conditioning class

The process of our personal training program:

    1. The first session is a screening process where we score a person’s mobility, flexibility, and motor control. The baseline of fitness will be taken to ensure that cardiovascular fitness has been improved.
    2. Muscular Strength/Endurance is tested to gain a baseline to improve neuromuscular function.
    3. Speed and power can be measured on the first day depending on the “training age” of the client. This can be done with more advanced gym-goers or athletes.
    4. From there, a customized plan is made up depending on the first evaluation and the goals of the client.
