Personal training is a way for individuals to understand good exercise techniques and programs. It is also a way to find out why exercise is vital to creating and maintaining personal fitness and good health while minimizing the risk of injury and wasted time on non-productive programs. We do not believe in fad techniques or extreme programs. We do believe in tailoring, to each individual, a program that will produce results. We stay abreast of the latest techniques that are based on results, proven safe, and tested and tried by the highest in the profession in sports, fitness and health.
Resistance exercise is vital in creating and maintaining skeletal health and balance while increasing metabolism and decreasing the effects of ageing. Women, at times, are a bit reluctant to engage in such training for fear of becoming too muscular. We promise this is not the case. Women need to understand that building muscle will only enhance their physique and that one would need to undertake, with great effort, resistance exercise that is specific and ongoing, (literally years) to become "bulky" in any sort of the manner. It is our intent to lose the flabby arms, tighten up the abdominal muscles and firm the buttocks from sagging a bit. I personally train to shape your body in a very feminine and beautiful toned look.
Modern science has begun to realize that maintaining muscle mass is important to health as we age. We lose approximately 1/2 of a percent of our muscle mass a year after age 30. With that muscle loss, is a corresponding reduction in our metabolism, which is the ability to use energy. We also understand that the core structure for our bodies, our skeleton, decreases in density through the years which may make us prone to injury. Weight bearing exercises stops, and even reverses this process to an extent.
When we incorporate good foundational resistance exercise, along with planned and consistent cardio work and good nutrition, we achieve results. Those results have a far greater chance at becoming lifestyles and physiques to live by, and with for the rest of our life. We also become more active and able to enjoy activities for a far greater time throughout our lives.
