First-Class Personal Training
Personal training at Body Basics revolves around the concept of functional movement. That means we focus on toning and building muscle, injury prevention, increasing flexibility, increased range of motion and improving healthy joints. We are mostly a conglomeration of downtown business professionals that are looking to stay fit and healthy living long, enjoyable lives!
We train all types of people including:
- Fitness New-Comers
- Expectant Woman
- Post-Injured Individuals
We start all our clients out with Functional Movement Screening (FMS). FMS is an in-depth analysis of the body with focused attention on movement pattern quality. The screening takes about 1 hour, in which time the client is asked to perform various stretches, exercises, and balance tests. Functional limitations and asymmetries are quickly identified in each person. An electronic body analysis test is also conducted, which will tell us your body fat %, hydration %, lean muscle mass weight and more.
With the knowledge we've gained from the FMS test, the electronic body analysis test, and your goals which you've communicated to us, we develop a customized training program with exercises that will be most effective to restore proper movement and build strength in each individual. Our training programs are systematically designed to keep the workouts fresh, stress the body in different ways and to make sure we're targeting each area of the body uniquely. These assessments will also occur periodically to track your progression and success!
You will get to choose from Private Personal Training or Semi-Private Personal Training. Both have the same individualized workout plan and are equally effective. The main difference between the two is attention. With Private Training, you receive one-on-one attention. With Semi-Private Training, your attention is shared between 1 or 2 other clients, which can make for more of a social fitness hour! Semi-Private can be a great choice for couples or family members!
During our sessions, we use a wide variety of fitness tools and techniques including:
- kettle bells
- dumbbells and barbells
- BOSU and stability balls
- resistance bands
- cable machines
- yoga/pilates exercises
- body weight exercises
- sand bags
- training racks
- Gravity Training System (GTS)
- and many other options
With a plethora of tools at our disposal, we pick the best tool for your body, your fitness level and the desired exercise.
