Through our evidence-based approach, we can specifically tailor your strength and fitness training program. Your tailored strength and fitness program will keep a close eye on your progress to achieve optimal muscular strength improvements.
As all our staff are either Physiotherapists, Accredited Exercise Physiologists or Osteopaths, your program is also designed to prevent and manage the risk of injury. This is done by continuing to maintain strength/activating of your stablising muscle groups. The is preventing damaging load on the vulnerable joints of the lower back, hips, knees and shoulders.
As you progress with your program and your injuries are no longer a limiting factor in your activity level, we can take your training to the next level! We will focus more on your health and fitness goals, keeping in mind any other muscle and joint issues, to ensure that your program remains safe.
This will involve adding the following into your program:
- More classic strength and conditioning exercises to really take your functional strength to the next level. This will help in further improving your strength and improving your muscle mass, a major step in helping manage our weight and improving your bone density. We may need to divide your program between upper body and lower body programs between each session. This will ensure we keep track of your volumes and intensities over the weeks.
- Adding specific cardio and fitness training. Again, this will be tailored to your needs, which can be focused towards helping you achieve your fitness or weight management goals
As always, your program will be tailored to you specifically, focusing on achieving your desired goals, in a realistic and safe way. Your goals will be reviewed and assessed on a regular basis, to ensure that you are always progressing and achieving your desired outcome.
Like everything that we do with you, even the HIIT program is tailored specifically to your needs and individualized only to you. When you are ready to directly work on your fitness, HIIT workouts are perfect to work on your aerobic, anaerobic and sprinting fitness.
Again, everyone is different, your aerobic, anaerobic and sprinting tipping points are different. Assessing your aerobic fitness and finding the right parameters for you is the key to an effective and efficient training program. This is the difference between just getting on the bike for just a ride and actually making a real change in your fitness
If you have a specific sports goal in minds, the final step is to design and incorporate sports specific training into your program.
This may involve adding jumping exercises, such as plyometrics (focused on developing explosive power), ball activities or other specific training depending on your sport.
Finally, we may also need to speak to and work together with your sports coach to ensure that there is a smooth transition from your training with us to your sports training outside our centre.
Our goal is always, for you to achieve the physical goals you desire and live the physically active life you want and deserve.
