“The chief cause of common faults in games and exercises is ignorance…others fail because they are in the wrong position; there are some who have almost their whole body in the wrong position; there are some who have only parts of it wrong. The chief cause of all these mistakes was that [he] had practiced the whole movement as a whole movement and not part-by-part.” —Drs. F.A. Schmidt and Eustace H. Miles
In personal training, each foundational movement is broken down into a beginning, middle, and end position. The movements have detailed performance standards associate with them, which are observable, measurable, and repeatable. Simply telling someone “do a lunge” is not enough, nor is just showing them the complete movement once and expecting a perfect lunge as a result.
Whether it’s strength or stretch, Personal Training provides one-on-one coaching specific to your body’s movement patterns. You may be well-suited for this service if you are an athlete looking to improve performance, rehabilitating from an injury, needing increased length and flexibility, or desire a solid starting foundation toward continued exercise.
