Posted: February 10, 2008 in Our Services

Now seemed like a good time to actually give you a little summary of what it is we actually do and how this makes our gym and personal training service in Totnes, Devon so special. So here goes…

The 10 Areas of Fitness

  3. Speed
  4. Strength
  5. Power
  6. Flexibility
  7. Coordination
  8. Agility
  9. Balance
  10. Accuracy

Standard Gym-based workouts consisting of Cardio and isolation weight movements i.e. machines only, work 2-3 of these at the most. The movements have been simplified to such a degree that only limited stimulation can be achieved.

Working all of the above elements requires movements and workouts which require “coaching” and guidance. This is where we fit in.

The movements that work most effectively are Functional Exercises i.e. exercises that mimic the movements we use in everyday life such as running, lifting, throwing and climbing. Evolution and survival has programmed us this way.

So, we look at the world of sport where functional movements are trained to elite levels and by looking at which sports produce the strongest, fittest, best coordinated athletes, we find that the training methods of Sprinters, Gymnasts and Weightlifters are the most effective.

We then combine their training exercises and movements into high intensity, exciting workouts. These workouts are then timed or measured to compare future efforts against. The aim is constant improvement.

What then happens is that the reason why you exercise becomes more about performance and achievement and less about how you look – which ironically is when you start to get in shape the fastest and look and feel your best. Awesome.

We also realise that exercise is only part of the fitness puzzle and ultimately, we want to make you a happier, better person and to do this we also look at your nutrition and lifestyle.

We specialise in the implementation of a balanced and effective nutritional program that is proven to improve health and body composition. As with everything we do, we aim to educate you so that you can learn to do this stuff without us.

So, to finish with some buzzwords, what we offer is a Holistic Lifestyle Improvement Service Focusing on Fitness and Nutrition Within a Personal Training Environment!! …Cool.
