One-Hour Training--Personal Fitness Enhancement
To meet your specific goals, whether they be muscular strength, endurance, toning and firming, cardiovascular conditioning, bone density enhancement, sports specific training, post rehab or just general health and wellness, every session is designed on three main ingredients.

Your specific needs = basic health and mechanical.
Your individual goals = short-term and long-term goals based on what you want rather on what you don't want.
Your preferences = choosing exercises and activities you enjoy will help in achieving goals faster. Exercise shouldn't be limited to only weights and cardio machines.


Integrated Functional Training
IFT is the concept of performing exercises that transfer over to real-life functions or improve one's tolerance or performance of work, daily life or sports. IFT can include "corrective" exercises that are designed around flexibility, posture, spinal stability, core strength and balance to "re-educate" muscles. (Moved some of this around, added a few things and changed punctuation.)

General Health Enhancement
Advancement and overall maintenance of oneÕs health is vital for living a long and healthy life. Because we have so many things in life that work against the maintenance and the natural workings of the human body (shoes, cars, TV, computers, etc.), it becomes important to do things to continue keeping the body balances and active. MAT is an amazing tool to help keep the body balanced and de-stressed. Doing variations of resistance exercise is a great way to keep minor loads going into the joints and muscles to keep the system adaptive to lifeÕs physical demands. Small amounts of cardiovascular activity based on your heart rates ability and over all health are great ways to keep your heart and lungs strong and capable of handling short bursts of increased stress that is needed in day-to-day life. All of these activities are all specific to the individual and knowing where to start and how to adapt over time is essential to getting the most of your time and energy.
