Here is what we hear people saying: “Why would I spend the money to work with one of our Kinesiologist/Personal Trainer when I could just go to the gym and work out on my own? It can’t be that hard to figure out, can it?”

The benefits of working one on one with a Kinesiologist are plenty. The first and most important benefit is reducing the risk of injury. Many people start lifting the wrong weight or with the wrong technique/form and end up injuring themselves in the process. Working with someone who understands body mechanics can get you started properly and keep you progressing without injury.


When your workouts are customized for you, you will see benefits from increased strength, stamina and performance; to decreased pain symptoms, increased mobility and injury prevention; working one on one with a Kinesiologist is certainly a more strategic and beneficial approach to improving your health & fitness compared to simply buying a gym membership and attempting to figure it out for yourself.

In addition, training with one of our Kinesiologists will ensure that you are preserving your muscle mass and bone density as you age. We now know, without a question of a doubt, that preserving muscle mass is essential to sustaining your physical well-being as you age; as well as helping to prevent diseases such as Osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, cancer and depression.
