Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching:
We use a set of questionnaires to identify roadblocks that many individuals face on their quest to better health. There are many components to health that are overlooked by the fitness industry today. These include sleep patterns, digestion, detoxification, stress, what you are eating and when you are eating. If you are not achieving the goals you desire through your exercise program then these are usually the hindering factors. Addressing these factors through lifestyle changes is the only way to get down to the root of the cause. The cure is in the cause!
Corrective/Rehabilitative Exercise, Sports Performance and Personal Training:

Every client begins with a thorough full body evaluation that consists of:
- Postural Analysis

- Pelvic Tilt

Body Fat and Circumference Measurements
Body composition statistics and circumference measurements are taken on an as-needed basis and provide information regarding the status of the overall health of the client. They also provide objective physiologic measurements that can be a motivational starting point. We use skin fold calipers to measure body fat and take measurements from 4 different sites on the body. Circumference measurements are done with a tape measure and measurements are taken from 7 different sites. Waist to hip ratio and BMI are included.
After performing a comprehensive assessment we will design a personalized exercise program tailored exactly to your needs, goals and time commitment. This includes corrective stretches, corrective exercises and workouts that pertain to your wellness goals and your work or sports environment.
