When it comes to your health and fitness journey, nothing is more important than a thorough understanding of where you're starting and where you'd like to go.
Whether your goal is to lose weight, get stronger or just be healthier, all personal training clients will go through a health history and a comprehensive movement screen. A movement screen is a simple tool that will answer questions about where we can step on the gas, and where we may need to brake for a little while.
No two bodies move the same, therefore no two training programs should be the same. Maybe it's that old ankle injury you suffered in college, or that nagging shoulder every time you play golf...a movement screen will help us to identify where we can build on fitness qualities, and areas that may need some attention first.
Personal trainers should conduct themselves like doctors. When you go to the doctor, you talk about your symptoms, the doctor assesses you, perhaps run some diagnostic tests, then makes a decision about which medicine to prescribe. Exercise programs are no different. We can not just choose exercises that we like or saw on Instagram, because it might not be the right medicine for your specific diagnosis and physiology.
To me, personal training is teaching exercise and health, it is not counting reps or acting like a drill sergeant. It is an extremely scientific process with major positive health benefits when prescribed and performed correctly.
