What to Expect
Not all exercise is good for you. It can be a minefield navigating through the plethora of fitness information available or even re-evaluating what you've always done. My job is to help you figure out what works for you with what you're bringing to the table (meaning the idiosyncratic nuances of your joints and structure).
Sometimes your body will try to tell you things like 'slow down' or even 'not today, I need more time to recover'. Many times people misunderstand their body's cues and think they just need to work out harder, which may lead them to feel worse.
I will work with you to maximize your joint integrity and your muscular strength while minimizing wear and tear. It starts with a comprehensive assessment to get a clearer picture of where you're starting from to make it easier to chart a path to where you want to be.
Once we review your results together I will suggest a course of action to strategically improve your strength and mobility thereby improving your quality of life. This will require an openness to the bigger picture comprising your health and self care responsibilities, not only regarding exercise and its execution but other contributing factors like sleep, recovery and stress management.
