Complete Postural Assessment
The purpose of the complete postural assessment is for me to get a better understanding of your current alignment and how that is affecting your kinetic chain and movement patterns. The assessment will use a sequence of tests that look for muscle strength and weakness, ligament tension and laxity, changes in positions of bones and joints, and ability to recruit and mobilize correct musculature when moving. The goal of the postural assessment is to provide me with a better understanding of your body so we can form a plan that addresses any imbalances. We can use this understanding in ongoing 1 on 1 sessions to give you the best possible workout. We can also use our assessment in Postural Repositioning and Strengthening Sessions to specifically address ways you can manage your own postural imbalances. The postural assessment is 1 hour.
Postural Re-positioning and Strengthening Session
At each Re-positioning and Strengthening Session we will do a short retest to see changes made since the last time we met. We will use the formula from your Postural Assessment to develop a plan for creating strengthening exercises and “stretches” that will enable you to re-position your own body. Each time we meet for a session we will progress these exercises from a stable environment to a less stable environment until we get to a place where your body is able to maintain a neutral spine and pelvis in an unstable environment. Your body’s ability to maintain control while jumping, twisting, running, and doing all your favorite activities is our ultimate goal. Likely you will be sent home with 1-3 exercises. We may meet once a week or once every two weeks depending on your progress. Each session is 30 minutes.
Using a well rounded strategy that incorporates our Postural Assessment as well as cutting edge information in the fields of sport training, movement, and nutrition, I am dedicated to achieving your long term goals. I will provide more than just a great workout. I will design a plan that is customized to your needs and focused on achieving optimal performance through constant evaluation. There is no one size fits all exercise strategy. It is important to be able to change directions as soon as something is not working. I will provide a level of focus and understanding of movement that will make it possible for me to offer solutions and change movement patterns based on your needs at the moment. Your goals may be gaining strength, losing weight, running a marathon, learning to wakeboard, etc. My goal will always be to get you there in the most advantageous way. Sessions can range from 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on your wants, needs, and goals. Personal training can be 1 on 1 or 2 on 1.
Training in a group does not allow the same postural and movement focus as personal training, however I design all group sessions to incorporate strength, posture, balance, agility, high intensity intervals, and body awareness. I am also able to work around limitations and give you alternative exercises if something does not feel like it is working or causing pain. Group training is fun, affordable and provides accountability from others in the group. You may choose to have a Postural Assessment prior to starting group training if you have pain or feel unbalanced. Through your assessment I can better guide you in the group sessions to make small changes to exercises that will benefit you. Also, you will gain knowledge regarding your own body so that you can use tools that I give you to build postural strength outside of the group workouts. Group sessions are typically 1 hour and a group is between 3-8 people. Current group sessions are ongoing, however, if you wish to form your own group that is also possible.
Current Group Training: Mondays and Wednesdays at 9am or Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6am or 8am. Packages are available.
