Personal Training Q & A

What is personal training?

Personal training is a type of exercise program developed by a health and wellness professional. It uses safe and effective physical activities to improve mobility, encourage range-of-motion, and build strength.

The personal trainers at Shift Wellness have years of experience working one-on-one with clients. They can work with you to develop a custom personal training regimen that improves sports performance or eases uncomfortable symptoms to boost your overall quality of life.

What types of personal training might I receive?

The team at Shift Wellness offers several types of personal training, including:

Yoga

Yoga is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices developed thousands of years ago in India. It combines physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation or relaxation, to build strength, encourage balance, and relieve stress. Yoga provides a safe and effective way to improve strength and mobility; it can also lower your risk of overuse or wear-and-tear injuries.

Pilates

Pilates is a type of low-impact exercise that strengthens your muscles while improving flexibility. It targets your core muscles and focuses on restoring balance to your body. Pilates is safe for people of all ages and fitness backgrounds. It improves posture and places a focus on proper alignment.

Feldenkrais Method

The Feldenkrais Method is a gentle exercise technique that works to improve your life through gentle, mindful movements and bodily awareness. The Feldenkrais Method offers a variety of benefits, including pain relief, improved balance, and enhanced creativity. 

Tai Chi

 

Tai Chi is an ancient martial art, described as “meditation in motion.” This mind-body practice is low impact and features slow, methodical movements. When combined, these factors improve muscle strength, flexibility, and balance.

Individualized strength and conditioning

If you’re a weekend warrior or active individual, it’s important to stay physically fit. Without regular strength and conditioning training, you run the risk of a sports-related accident or injury. The personal trainers at Shift Wellness work with you to improve your performance on the court or playing field.

What type of personal training program is right for me?

To determine the type of personal training program that’s right for you, schedule an appointment at Shift Wellness. Telemedicine personal training sessions are available. Your provider can develop a custom personal training regimen that aligns with your individual needs.

If you’re experiencing pain or recovering from surgery, you might benefit from yoga or Pilates as part of your physical therapy program. If you’re training for a marathon or obstacle course, you might benefit from individualized strength training and conditioning.
