We see it all the time.
People get motivated to make big changes in their lives. Really motivated. They sign-up with a local gym and hire a personal trainer. They modify their schedule to accommodate regular workouts. Three weeks into their program and things are going seemingly well. However, come week four, injury occurs. The individual becomes frustrated and discouraged, ending up in our office for treatment and management of their injuries.
Sound familiar? Has this happened to you?
At Total Performance, we set out to fix this problem. We started by asking ourselves a couple key questions. Why were people getting hurt? Was it exercise in general? Was it “doing too much”? Was it their nutrition? Wrong supplement choices?
What we came to find out was that initial assessments were FAR from adequate. Sometimes there were NO assessments done at all prior to programming. Clients were essentially being thrown into exercise regimens without any understanding of what their bodies were and were not physically capable of.
This is a huge problem.
Performing an exercise program full of movements that the client is not physically capable of performing is a sure way to cause injury, and at best, won’t allow the individual to reach their full potential.
THIS is what makes us different. We use cutting-edge methods to fully evaluate and assess our training clients before we create their program. We assess physical capacity, body composition, nutritional habits and psychological factors to produce the safest, most effective programs available. When you couple this with highly trained, passionate trainers, great results are inevitable.
In addition to this, we can often take individuals who have experienced injury and seamlessly transition them from the clinic to the gym. This is a huge benefit of a clinic/gym hybrid. We can take previous injury history and apply it directly into the gym and future fitness programs.
