FIT Factor's Personal Training Philosophy
Goals are reached through a sum of workouts, not a single workout. So, while it is important to be diligent and consistent with training, missing one workout or taking it easy one day can actually be a benefit if you body just isn’t ready. The difficulty of this lies in the decision to be pushed or take a step back. This is where I come in.
My job is to create a plan of action that takes the body as a whole into account in order to maximize the potential benefit of each workout and a selection of exercises tailored to your individual needs and goals. That is what I do best and this is the most evident when I train individuals for endurance sports.
Exercise and training should be something you look forward to, and if you are constantly being pushed beyond your limits for the day, enjoyment of the training process is simply not possible. My goal is to create a balance of recovery and exercise to ensure that I am pushing you at the right level and creating a positive association with training.
So while the importance of hard work should not be understated, it is always better to work smarter, not harder.
- Recovery from training is equally as important as the training itself.
- Exercise plans are best implemented when they are fit AROUND your schedule.
- Training programs are most effective when individualized to your goals, abilities, limitations, health status, and preferences.
