What To Expect:
Better results and maximum return using motivation, safety and proper form.
The first consultation is a simple session so we can meet in person, discuss your goals, review your health history, and do some basic assessments using your own body weight. Based on this information I will construct a program specially for you which will chart a steady progression towards your goals. Currently I work out of Body Builders Gym in Silver Lake, CA. You can come to me or if it is more convenient, I can come to you.
Not the typical "meathead" weightlifting training.
The focus is placed on strengthening the body’s kinetic chain (skeletal, nervous & muscular). Strength training begins with core training, neuromuscular training (stability) and reactive neuromuscular training (balance). Like any structure, we must fist build a strong foundation: With a solid base the body is better prepared to accept and handle increasing loads and pressure. Each routine is designed to fit a specific person, but every routine is geared to increase functional strength, promote weight loss and protect the body against injury.
If you want to sweat hard and peel away the fat then put up your dukes. You will learn to throw a variety of punches, kicks, knees, elbows and even head butts. The training is a grueling one-on-one fighting workout. Using focus mitts, Thai pads, heavy bags and other training equipment you will start with simple punches, working into punch/kick combinations which emphasizing body and foot movement. No experience is necessary just the desire to work hard!
Flexibility training is the single most important training you can perform to increase & promote wellness in your life. At the end of every session you lie back and I do the work. Active Isolation Stretching can correct muscle imbalances, rehab minor tears or pulled muscles and joints. Reconnect with your body, feel more energetic, less stiffness/soreness and help to prevent future injuries.
Pre and Post Natal Training:
Many exercising mothers-to-be stop exercise once they find they are pregnant. There are many benefits to continuing exercise during pregnancy, for both mother and child. A large number of women, who continue exercise during pregnancy, tend to have a quicker and less complicated labor than those who do not exercise. Many mothers also find they put on less excess weight during pregnancy whilst exercising, therefore making the post-birth goals quicker and easier. The baby's health will also benefit from a healthy mother, and so nutrition and exercise are crucial. Postnatal is often a difficult time in terms of maintaining the commitment to exercise. From around 6-8 weeks, it is perfectly safe to return to exercise, and achieve the 3 main postnatal goals of: a return to pre-pregnancy weight, a rapid improvement in abdominal tone, and improved body image. This can be achieved this around according to your schedule with your new addition to the family!
Imagine this: a gym that is built with 0 carbon foot print standards a beautiful space surrounded with lots of natural light and plant life. I know such a gym. It called the Great Outdoors. We have the advantage of great weather in Los Angeles. Why would you get in the car and burn unnecessary fossil fuel when you can start burning your own calories right away? My green workouts will help you to interface with local environment by providing a tailor made exercise routine based on your surrounding neighborhood. Lets hit the staircases, climb on the equipment of your local park, and get to know your community a little bit better by exploring its fitness possibilities. If you don’t like gyms and crave oxygen and sunlight, this is a great way to get mind-blowing results in the great outdoors.
At Home or in the Office:
You don’t need to go to a gym. You can train in the privacy of your own home or workplace. I will supply you with all the equipment you need and will work alongside you to make sure that you get maximum benefit from every session. I am particularly good at squeezing a lot out of a small space.
A great option for businesses that want to give the gift of good health to their employees or for a group of workers who want to move together before or after work. I will lead you in a group exercise class for 60 min that will raise your heart rate, improve your flexibility and deal with problems associated with working at a desk or counter by addressing posture and increasing strength.
