The key to developing a safe and effective personal training program begins with a comprehensive assessment. It not only gives us a baseline for the basic health markers of weight and cardiovascular health but helps identify muscle imbalances and movement impairments that can lead to pain, injury and performance limitations.
Personal training should never be a “one size fits all” approach. To be effective, exercises should be chosen based on your posture, abilities and personal history. The assessment gives us the information necessary to design an exercise program that is tailored to your needs.
It’s all about choosing the right exercises, knowing how to progress them and making sure you perform them with good technique and posture.
