Strength Training With a Personal Trainer

Strength training or resistance training has you do exercises that increase your strength and endurance. Usually by improving these your body naturally adapts to having more stress put on it. If you feel tightness or pain while doing certain exercises this is a good sign that your body can’t handle the stress of those movements. This is good for people with chronic pain or joint issues since strength training will target those weak areas and improve them until they can take the stress of previously painful or tight movements.

Fitness Training With Muscle Activation

MAT or Muscle Activation Technique is a tool used by MASJ to assess and correct chronic pain throughout the body. This can be things like correcting muscular imbalances or improving range of motion within the body. MAT does this by finding and correcting the muscles that are causing tension, this way the body naturally reduces the tension in the area since it is no longer needed. It also helps improve muscle function since it focuses on getting rid of muscular imbalances caused by compensation in the body. 

Mobility & Flexibility Training

Training your body’s mobility and flexibility has many benefits, even if you don’t play sports. Your muscles will be looser and less tense as you increase your mobility. This means less aches and pain! It will also improve your posture and balance correcting any imbalances in your body. This also helps to prevent injuries since those imbalanced muscles Body Mobility and flexibility is an important element with fitness and prevent chronic pain illnesses.

What To Expect On The First Visit With A Fitness Coach

On the first visit we ask that you make time for a 90 minute meeting where we will go over your health history, posture, joint by joint movement, and any problems you want addressed. Then we’ll set up some goals and exercises for you to do on a daily basis that are tailored to your needs.

After your first visit, we’ll give you ‘homework’ to do with our fitness coaching app and schedule a follow-up appointment in a week or two. Our goal is to correct your imbalance and strengthen through fitness where you only need to come in for check ups ranging from monthly to bi-annually depending on your health goals.

Why Is Fitness Important?

Fitness is important to maintaining your health, by not exercising regularly you risk your body’s health declining. This usually means things like diabetes or weight gain, which themselves come with more health problems. The main issue though is that your muscles wouldn’t be getting any use, so they would degrade and become weaker. 

This can lead to chronic pain as the underused muscles have to be pushed hard to get regular movements completed. Although exercise can also help your state of mind, as exercising can help to boost your mood and balance some daily activities. The main way it boosts your mood is by releasing endorphins and serotonin which are natural chemicals that make you happy.

Exercising Affects Your Health

There are a plethora of health problems that come with lack of exercise, but the main issue is chronic pain caused by lack of muscle use. This pain can affect almost any part of your body. It can even cause issues for your arthritis because the muscles supporting the joints are weak and can’t support the joint function.
