What to Expect: Movement

Movement Coaching (Personal Training)

As explained in my bio and on the general coaching page, I take a very functional approach to movement. We are designed to move, and we feel better (and get better results) when we move well. In designing my programs I utilize experience, NASM guidelines, current research/training knowledge, and YOU. I do my best to synthesize all of this information and tailor it to you: how you move, what your goals are, you current fitness level, your past experience, etc..

Who is this for?

This is for anyone and everyone. From your average Jane/Joe to elite athletes. From pain-free to chronic pain. From the sedentary couch potato to the weekend warrior. Programs are tailored and graded to meet your individual needs.

General Info:

  1. Workouts will last between 30-45min; with the first 10-15min dedicated to warm-up and mobility work. (Remember that “long and grueling” doesn’t always means “effective and worth your time”) 
  2. Workouts can come to you, or you can come to me (details will be arranged on an individual basis).

Assessment Process:

  1. Initial (and periodic) body weight measures
  2. Individual posture and gait assessment (i.e. how you stand and walk)
  3. Individual dynamic movement assessment (i.e. things like squatting, pushing, and pulling)
  4. Individual cardiorespiratory assessment (i.e. how we can safely improve your capacity to achieve better training results)

Optional:

  • Percent Body Fat Measures (Utilizing the SUM7 Skinfold Assessment)
  • Body Girth Measurements (e.g. waist, hip, chest, shoulders, etc..)

Programming:

  • Individual, comprehensive, and periodized fitness program that include various combinations of:
    • Dynamic warm-up and mobility training
    • Functional resistance and core training
    • Novel balance training
    • Speed, agility, quickness, and reactivity work
  • Cardiorespiratory training for fitness and/or performance
  • Regular re-evaluations to make sure that we are moving towards your goals

Equipment Utilized:

  • Dumbbells
  • TRX/Suspension Trainer
  • Exercise Ball (For in-home training this is a “bring/buy your own ball; BYOB” scenario to make traveling with equipment easier on me. Everything else listed can and will be provided.)
  • Revolution Fit Balance Board
  • BOSU
  • Resistance Bands
  • Jump Rope
