Whether your goals are performance-driven, rehabilitation-focused or weight loss-based, personal training can help you reach them. Working with an exercise professional will provide you with education around maximizing the effectiveness of your workout while preventing injuries.
You will benefit from a personalized plan that fits your schedule and needs. In addition, there is a level of accountability and motivation that comes from working out with another person that often eludes us when going it alone.
It is recommended that most healthy adults get a minimum of 150 minutes of activity per week at a moderate-to-vigorous intensity. Yet less than 19% of Canadians are meeting that target. An exercise professional like a kinesiologist or exercise physiologist can help increase your daily and weekly physical activity so that you can reap the benefits of exercise and reach your goals.
PERSONAL TRAINING WITH PROPEL
Our registered kinesiologists and exercise physiologists are exercise professionals who incorporate the sciences of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, psychology and neuroscience into an all-encompassing healthcare practice. They are skilled at creating exercise programs that suit your abilities, needs, and target your goals.
At Propel Physiotherapy, our rregistered kinesiologists and exercise physiologists also have extensive experience facilitating meaningful activities with people living with disabilities. Safety is always a priority, but they know just how much to push you so you still make the gains you are in search of.
At your first personal training session, you will participate in a general fitness assessment pertaining to your main concerns. This will help to shape your goals and set realistic timelines.
The professionals at Propel will also guide you through movements, exercises, repetitions and form, and determine if you require any modifications. Depending on your goals, the frequency, intensity, and type of exercises will be prescribed and carried out with you. And you’ll always leave with some sort of homework to better yourself outside of the gym.
In addition, with the guidance of Propel’s in-house physiotherapy team, we can keep you on track even if you’re battling an injury.
