As an exercise physiologist, as well as a trainer, the most fundamental thing I train and teach my clients is the ability to use their bodies in the most efficient ways possible at all times, giving them the ability to always perform and function at their best, regardless of the activity. I call this Body Control, and it’s just as important for the 85-year-old great-grandmother as it is for the world-class athlete.
Our bodies have much in common with the buildings we live and work in. Both require strong foundations to hold and protect the critical systems they’re made of, and both require ongoing maintenance, and development, to function at their full capabilities.
These systems are highly dependent on each other, and if one or more fails to work to its potential, it can greatly affect the structure as a whole — often negatively.
It’s common in the health and fitness fields to focus on just one or two components. For example, the diet plan that allows one to lose weight, but does nothing to improve strength or endurance; or the resistance program that results in big muscles, yet ignores cardio, balance and flexibility; or the high-intensity workouts that achieve quick results, but are unsustainable over time.
Achieving true body control requires a somewhat non-traditional, creative, and individualized approach to physical activity — one that recognizes that the systems inherent in each person are unique to them, and that ways to maximize their effectiveness need to be equally unique. To do this, we focus on a combination of six key elements: Balance, Cardiopulmonary Fitness, Muscular Fitness, Range of Motion, Nutrition, and Consistency.
A healthy lifestyle must become absolutely
This type of training will change your life, leaving you happier, more energetic, stronger, smarter, more capable, less prone to disease and illness, and open up a world of new opportunities. And once you adopt it, it’ll be with you forever.
True health and fitness needs to correspond to the real world. Most of us don’t lift weights or run on trails all day. We need to be able to perform a wide range of activities with as few limitations as possible. We need to gain control.
As an exercise physiologist — a health-fitness professional — I optimize performance through the assessment, design and implementation of individual exercise, nutritional and lifestyle programs. This provides clients reliability and accountability, helping them stay focused and disciplined so they can unlimit their limits.
