Body Fat Analysis...FREE
The Fitness Institute can help you with:
- Weight Loss: The Fitness Institute Arrowhead provides a low glycemic nutritional plan along with Peripheral Heart Action (PHA) exercise programs that utilize strength training in a cardiovascular mode. This allows the body to incorporate fat as a primary source of energy in unison with increasing lean mass to improve metabolism. We have had great success with weight loss and sustaining weight loss using this methodology over the years.
- Strength Training: We design programs that are specific to the clientele based on past injuries and a postural assessment. This gives us insight on muscular imbalance and muscles that need to be strengthened to improve stability. Our strength training provides core stability as well corrective exercises to improve muscular imbalance. On that same note we also work to provide a program that can help an individual improve in sports specific areas or areas of concern for the individual.
- Senior Health: The research has proven that individuals can improve strength at any age. This does not exclude seniors. Our programs for seniors are designed to improve overall balance, stability, and improve everyday activities that have become difficult from aging. These programs are very safe and effective in that we utilize a very progressive approach in the implementation of these exercise routines. The improvements observed in our seniors have been countless over the years. Remember, you are never too old to improve quality of life.
- Youth Training: We have worked with youth programs for years ranging from sport specific concerns for Hockey, Volleyball, Tennis, Football etc.. We have also worked with youth to just have overall fitness improve with the goal of getting in better shape. We design programs that are fun and interactive for the individual to increase motivation.
