‘Core Training’ is a buzz word in this industry – find out what it really means & how to train this area effectively (using floor based exercises or with swiss balls, medicine balls, bands, etc
Balance & Coordination skills are massively under utilised throughout the population. Young developing athletes require this type of work to establish good quality movement patterns … while the mature clientel also benefit greatly in reducing falling accidents & improving confidence.
Postural control is a result of improved core & functional strength, flexibility, mobility & body awareness. If this area can be improved, joint stability is enhanced, with less wear & tear on your body, thus less injuries or ‘niggles’.
A large number of clients start with Pure Fitness, carrying numerous niggles & injury problems. Through our comprehensive assessment & progressive training methods, we have been able to greatly minimise such problems, for a number of years.
We have established a successful network of Professionals in associated fields – By working together with these specialists, we have assisted many of our clients with more chronic problems. (Physiotherapists, Massage Therapists, Chiroprators, Podiatrists, Nutritionists, Naturopaths, Osteopaths, etc.)
For clients who may not be able to train with us on a weekly basis, there is the option of following an individually tailored program from home or their own gym.
This may consist of an initial assessment & interview, followed by program design & preparation, then a followup session to implement the program & teach technique. Usually a technical review session is conducted 2-3 weeks later to check progress & make necessary adjustments.
This program is then reviewed & updated with a followup session every 6-8 weeks.
Over recent years, Pure Fitness Therapists have been involved in presenting workskops & seminars for Coaches, PE Teachers & Personal Trainers.
An example of topics include – speed & agility training for field sports or court sports; physical preparation for adolescent athletes; self-myofascial release using foam rollers; partner assisted stretching techniques; late stage rehabilitation techniques.
