Fitness Coaching

Fitness Coaching

Wellness League offers several different training options for you to consider. Each option includes a full 60-minute private session with your Wellness League affiliated coach. Each session will center around the following three fitness components: cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, and mobility. Your personal goals will dictate the remaining focus of each session, such as more time placed on balance, stretching, core work, athletic performance etc. Depending on the option(s) you choose, you will be placed with a coach who specializes in that respective area. 

Please feel free to mix and match any of these services. At Wellness League we strive to serve you and offer the best possible path to begin or continue your fitness journey!

A DOCTOR'S RELEASE IS OFTEN REQUIRED BEFORE BEGINNING A TRAINING REGIMENT IN THIS CATEGORY

Functional Exercise: Training methodology utilizing exercises that work to optimize everyday movement patterns

Coach: 

Did you know the majority of human movement can be traced to five different moves? Did you know these five different moves serve to create the foundation of movement? When we train these movements we put ourselves in the position to optimize our daily physical performance, which is the definition of functional fitness. At Wellness League, we believe in the healing power of movement attained through functional training. 

The following are your five foundational movements: 

  1. Push movements

  2. Pull movements

  3. Single Leg movements

  4. Bend-to-lift (squatting) movements

  5. Rotational movements

 

By choosing the Functional Exercise option, you will learn exercises that translate to real life activities. Examples of activities benefited from functional training include, but are not limited to:

 

  • Standing up from a chair without fear of falling over. 

  • Getting down on the ground with ease to play with your kiddos or grand  kiddos.

  • Getting up from the ground with ease after playing with your kiddos or grand kiddos. 

  • Lifting objects from the ground without hurting your back. 

  • Running further distances with less pain.

  • Being a better hiker.

  • Picking up a child.

  • And the list goes on... 

 

Someone interested in this category might ask one of the following questions: Do I want to crush walking up and down stairs? Do I want to go hiking for 10 miles? Do I want to play with my kids without being so darn tired? Do I want to climb a mountain, maybe wrestle a bear? Or something as simple as do I want to stand up from a chair (toilet) without using my hands and my knees hurting?  Let Wellness League’s Functional Four show you how to move better, feel better, and ultimately live better through the healing power of functional training.

Circuit Training: For those wanting to train using a high intensity full body workout.

Coach:

Circuit training is a version of High Intensity Training that challenges individuals not only on a physical level, but a mental one as well. This option incorporates multiple movement stations systematically placed back to back depending on your goal, fitness level, and familiarity with the exercise. These exercises are performed with very little rest between stations. Of course the intensity and rest periods can and will be adjusted based off your fitness level and recovery ability, but this is not the recommended starting point for individuals new to fitness. If you have been training for several months, and want a new challenge, this is the option for you! Don’t be afraid to bring a friend!
