Training Philosophy

My training philosophy starts from the ground up. From our first meeting, we are constantly looking to improve your health; starting with a movement assessment. Too many people want to jump straight into heavy lifting and strenuous workouts to get the benefits quickly. We will get the results, but we have to step back and make sure you are moving fine first in order to prevent injuries firstly, AND then allow better movement and more effective results during those killer workouts afterwards! That's not to say you won't get a great workout in the beginning, only that we have to do it in the right order! My style of training is functional. I want your body to work out the way our body was intended through movement. We do a lot of compound movements, exercising over numerous joints in singular movements which requires our body to work as a whole focusing on a strong, safe core as well as perfect posture. Not only does this allow for more efficient and effective workouts, its also the way we do things in every day life. How many muscle groups do you think we use to properly lift a heavy box up off the ground and put it up and a waist high table? A lot more than sitting on a piece of exercise equipment that focuses on one muscle only :) To achieve this functional movement, we use TRX, Kettle Bells, sand bags, body weight, battle ropes, tires, stretch chords and numerous other exciting pieces of equipment...I promise yuo'll never get bored of repeat workouts! DIET! Perhaps the most important part of any healthy lifestyle change, and often overlooked. What you eat is what you wear on your waist. So if you are not eating properly, you aren't going to be getting near the results you are hoping for. Therefore, we make sure to guide you through your nutrition and even offer complete meal plans/shopping lists!
