What We Do

Nutrition Counseling

Nutrition counseling

Are nutrition, health and performance related? Of course! Like a finely-tuned racing car, your body needs the right fuel (food) and regular maintenance (exercise, lifestyle and mental attitude) to achieve its true health potential. Nothing is more important than healthy eating! Put in the wrong fuel or let it go without regular use and there’s no way it can deliver its full power and performance. Without healthy eating, your body’s engine will cough, splutter and eventually stall.

Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation

If you had surgery and are done with your Physical Therapy you need to exercise to get your body’s strength back in order to resume a life of higher quality than before your surgery. In all cases the muscles around the injured or worn area lost strength and flexibility due to lack of use. It is up to you to accomplish this once Physical Therapy is over. In order to not get injured again use the help of a professional.

Conditioning

Conditioning

Physical conditioning refers to any kind of exercise that will strengthen the heart, lungs and medium muscle groups in the body. While professional and weekend athletes each follow their own set of exercises, the idea is to get the body used to the physical rigors it will have to endure, as every activity requires a strong heart and efficient lung capacity to pump blood throughout the body, take in oxygen and dispel toxins.

Why We Do It

Why should I exercise?

Physical conditioning refers to any kind of exercise that will strengthen the heart, lungs and large muscle groups in the body. While professional and weekend athletes each follow their own set of exercises, the idea is to get the body used to the physical rigors it will have to endure—as every activity requires a strong heart and efficient lung capacity to pump blood throughout the body, take in oxygen and dispel toxins.Athletic conditioning is a kind of boot camp for anyone who needs to develop her physical and mental endurance. By keeping the cardiovascular system (heart and lungs) fit, she will manage stress well—whether on the basketball court, tennis court or in a court of law.By preparing your body for physical and mental duress, you can ask more of it, whether that means competing in a triathlon or enduring long, stressful days at work. Maintaining a basic level of physical conditioning allows you to easily increase the rigors of your workout, which might mean adding more weights in resistance training or adding mileage to weekly long-distance runs or bike rides.All physical activity creates micro tears in the muscle fibers and the buildup of lactic acid in your body, so the more in-shape you are, the faster you’ll be able to recuperate from these naturally occurring phenomena and avoid injuries. But don’t expect great progress overnight, as the body requires time to build muscle and adapt to increased physical demands.

How Often Should I Exercise?

The benefits of any exercise program will diminish if it’s disrupted too frequently. A “stop-start” routine is not only ineffective, but can cause injuries. Being consistent with exercise, therefore, is probably the most important factor in achieving desired results.

People often assume that more is better. Wrong! Doing too much too soon or performing intense exercises on a daily basis will have deleterious effects, such as muscle/tendon strains, loss of lean tissue, and fitness-level plateaus.

Cardio

If you are a beginner, start off slower than you think you should. Three days per week is realistic, safe and effective. If you are experienced, do cardiovascular (aerobic) exercises such as walking, jogging and bicycling for no more than 200 minutes per week with no more than 60 minutes per session.

Lifting Weights

Weight training should be done no more than three times per week targeting the same muscle groups. Exercise the same muscle groups on non-consecutive days because muscles need adequate time to recover and cannot be effectively trained if they are tired or sore.

Stretching

Many people forget to stretch or make the excuse that they don’t have the time. Flexibility is important, so make the time! Stretching can be done every day, but stick to a minimum of three times per week in order to reap the benefits. When the body is warmed up, such as after a workout session, perform five to 10 stretches that target the major muscle groups. Hold each stretch for 10-30 seconds.

Why is Exercise Important?

Have you ever heard the expression “use it or lose it”? It’s true! If you don’t use your body, you will surely lose it. Your muscles will become flabby and weak. Your heart and lungs won’t function efficiently. And your joints will be stiff and easily injured. Inactivity is as much of a health risk as smoking!

Helps Prevent Diseases

Our bodies were meant to move — they actually crave exercise. Regular exercise is necessary for physical fitness and good health. It reduces the risk of heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes and other diseases. It can improve your appearance and delay the aging process.

Improves Stamina

When you exercise, your body uses energy to keep going. Aerobic exercise involves continuous and rhythmic physical motion, such as walking and bicycling. It improves your stamina by training your body to become more efficient and use less energy for the same amount of work. As your conditioning level improves, your heart rate and breathing rate return to resting levels much sooner from strenuous activity.

Strengthens and Tones

Exercising with weights and other forms of resistance training develops your muscles, bones and ligaments for increased strength and endurance. Your posture can be improved, and your muscles become more firm and toned. You not only feel better, but you look better, too!

Enhances Flexibility

Stretching exercises are also important for good posture. They keep your body limber so that you can bend, reach and twist. Improving your flexibility through exercise reduces the chance of injury and improves balance and coordination. If you have stiff, tense areas, such as the upper back or neck, performing specific stretches can help “loosen” those muscles, helping you feel more relaxed.

Controls Weight

Exercise is also a key to weight control because it burns calories. If you burn off more calories than you take in, you lose weight. It’s as simple as that.

Improves Quality of Life

Once you begin to exercise regularly, you will discover many more reasons why exercise is so important to improving the quality of your life. Exercise reduces stress, lifts moods, and helps you sleep better. It can keep you looking and feeling younger throughout your entire life.
