Why Personal Training

Personal Training  |  Yoga  |  Pilates

When we think “work out,” we think of Personal Training. While this term can be broadly used, Joanna personally trains because she believes in the simple everyday movements such as squatting, stepping, climbing, lifting, pushing, pulling, etc. We do these movements every single day of our life, so why would we not exercise in this way? By using this fundamental method of exercise, we work to increase our strength, mobility, and can also increase physical power.

PTStrength and Endurance are two main components of Persoal Training. It is important to stregthen both surface muscles and deeper muscles in order to stabilize the bones of the body as well as support and protect us from everyday movements and positions. It is also is important to exercise the heart. Getting the heart rate up, and more importantly, adequately bringing it back down, is necessary to keep the heart healthy, and plays a large role in weight loss.

Often times people work with Personal Trainers to get results that they can SEE. Using one’s own body weight as resistance is one of the most effective and accessible ways to train. Adding weights, instability, and resistance can increase certain training techniques and move deeper into the deep stabilizing muscles that we use everyday to hold us upright and keep ourselves from falling. The more we utilize the muscles beneath the surface, the muscles that we see in the mirror will strengthen and tone.
