We lean toward a very risk adverse philosophy. We have a system which prepares an individual for exercise, rather then just throwing exercises at them, hoping something sticks, while not getting hurt. We believe in working with the body's ability rather then telling it what it should do. We rely on the philosophy and tools developed by Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT™) and the strategic application of forces to the body gleaned from the Resistance Training Specialist Program.
Imaging you are watching a movie. An entire movie consists of individual frames and when they are combined together you develop a motion picture. Now what if there are sections of the frames missing? Turns out to be a pretty hard movies to watch. Your body works the same way. If you are unable to sustain specific positions, then your overall motions may not be to great, which limits your ability to exercise efficient and safely.
Now apply that to exercise. When a demand is placed on the neuro-muscular system during exercise, the muscular system is required to react to and manage the forces through positions and motions of the entire body via the muscular system’s ability to contract. If the muscular system cannot contract effectively this may negatively affect one’s ability to participate in exercise. Motor control may be diminished resulting in an increased risk of injury to various components of human physiology while exposed to the forces associated with exercise and activities of daily life.
As Muscular system specialists, we work to improve the current state of an individual’s muscular system by restoring and improving the contractile ability of individual "frames" or muscles. Then we start incorporating an exercise regiment to improve the muscular system ability and tolerance.
