ABOUT OUR TRAINERS

Knowledge is not enough. Proper application of knowledge leads to results.

OUR DIFFERENCE
Our Trainers aren’t only certified Personal Trainers but are kinesiologists and exercise physiologists who make continuing education a Priority. Our education includes RTS Resistance Training Specialists, Muscle Activation Techniques and Osteopathy..

What We Do

Our trainers do far more than create a buffet of miscellaneous exercises that will make you sweat and feel like you got a great workout.

We develop a thought process where we choose exercises that will stimulate the appropriate muscles, joint or plane of motion and continually explore new options to progress each exercise.

When each isolated joint is stable and strong, you can successfully perform multi-joint exercises such as walking, running and jumping more effectively. That is how the body achieves a higher level of health and maintains it.

“It is easier to push somebody too hard. It’s much harder to prescribe just enough exercise that you get sustainable results without breaking down your body.”
