IDENTIFY AND CORRECT MUSCLE
IMBALANCES & WEAKNESS
A healthy body is a balanced body, and our program begins with identifying muscle imbalances and weaknesses. While correcting and preventing present & future imbalances (or injuries,) we are developing groundwork to build a solid physical foundation in order to further your fitness health. Muscle imbalances lead to pain and injury, and if left unrepaired can cause long-term physical damage.
The dhFIT Method
Discuss Personal Fitness History and Challenges
It all starts with getting to know you, what you've been through and what has led up to your current state. We determine how long have you been working towards your goals and what has been preventing you from reaching them and then coming up with a plan to break through those challenges.
Medical & Injury History
Everything in your life up until this point has played a role into your injuries, aches, and pains; previous workouts, sitting at a desk, bad nutrition, and so much more. But fret not, there is a pain-free life in your future.
Goals & Expectations
We will create SMART goals; Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely. Training with us will always be result-based and once one goal is met we set new goals; always growing and evolving!
It takes a keen eye to see the slightest postural imbalances throughout the entire body. Each and every tiny imbalance is a clue into current or potential injuries and pain via the myofascial matrix.
Through FMS (Functional Movement Screen) methods and other full-body tests, our goal is to determine which muscles are firing properly and not, which ones are strong versus weak, and if they are increasing pain and dysfunction.
Similar to the full-body movement analysis, it's our goal to determine imbalances and if any of these imbalances are leading to dysfunction, pain and injuries.
Address and Test Any Muscle Imbalances & Weaknesses
After collecting all of the data from the postural assessment, movement analysis, and flexibility assessment, it's our job to play the role of detective to determine which, if any, combination of the results are causing issues. We use a plethora of tests that can give us more understanding of why there is dysfunction, pain or injuries.
Create Program & Set Expectations
Once all the data is collected from the assessments and tests, a program is created to deliver long-lasting fitness results. If you have pain and injuries, the program will focus to fix these issues first, by resetting and rebuilding the foundation and addressing any imbalances and non-firing muscles. Whatever your goals, the program created will not only help you reach them, but we'll also help you create the mindset to make these goals permanent and a part of your lifestyle.
