Specialty Training For Peak Performance
You may not be the typical personal training client who wants to lose weight. Many of our clients over the past 20 plus years have come to us looking to build muscle, increase speed and improve athletic performance.
Many people need an elite level of fitness to gain entry into physically demanding professions like Police and Fire Departments. I have personally helped several men and women who were already in good shape but wanted to increase strength in specific areas. Only after careful preparations were they able to pass physical requirements the Montrose Search and Rescue Team, L.A. City Fire Department and Glendale Police Department require.
The same rules apply initially when it comes to getting in shape. The difference comes however, after the
initial weight loss and muscle gain. The client looking to advance to an elite class, goes beyond where most
people stop. Specific changes in diet and exercise methodology are implemented. This becomes the
difference which allows improvements in performance not typical to the novice.
If you are already in good shape or even great shape you may be having trouble getting to the next level. You may not be looking to pass the physical for the fire department but you may want get in the best shape of your life.
The biggest mistake even a skilled fitness buff makes is repetition. If you do the same routine for too long, the body adjusts and that’s not a good thing. You stop getting sore and you stop making progress. I hate to say it but three sets of ten is not for the advanced weight lifter. World class athletes sometime do a different routine every time they workout.
If you’re at a sticking point and want to make progress, we can specialty tailor a fitness routine that will take you to where you never believed you could go. Give us a call for a free fitness evaluation.
