Hi, I'm Greg and I have been a personal trainer and group fitness instructor since 2004. I have a passion for health, sports and fitness. I enjoy coaching and motivating others to live more active and healthier lifestyles. I have a lot of experience training a wide variety of people and abilities. Helping all ages tone up, lose weight, build strength and eat healthier. I help young athletes who want to improve their conditioning and performance on the court/field to seniors wanting to improve their balance, lower blood pressure, and maybe cut down a few strokes to their golf game. I understand each person’s goals, abilities, limitations, and motivation is different. I really enjoy customizing workouts for each person.
There are some benefits with using traditional machines but with machines you are only working one muscle group at a time and your body gets used to that and the results slow down as a result. Functional training and free weights work multiple muscle groups and burn more calories to maximize your workout. Functional training improves muscle strength, balance, coordination, flexibility and joint stability. It Involves a variety of exercises that really target the core muscles of the abdomen and lower back. 95% of people with back problems have poor core strength and flexibility.
Resistance training will increase strength in the muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments which will also help prevent injuries and improve flexibility. Suspension training (with straps) are great for overall strength allow you to do body weight exercises that are very functional without the strain on your joints and ligaments.
