FAQ's and Common Comments

But you only work with triathletes!

IconOne: Absolutely not.

I don’t have time to add strength training to my regimen.

IconOne: Strength training isn’t about working harder or adding more time, it’s about insuring added quality in the time work is done. We strive to understand your schedule, goals, current training, and add value to time allotted.

I don't have interest in joining a gym.

IconOneNo problem.

No gym needed. Once we understand your needs, we provide suggestions that can be done at home or on the road.

I don't want to bulk up.

IconOne: An individualized program is about understanding your goals as related to your body. Synonymous with most people’s perception of strength training, hypertrophy refers to increased muscle bulk and size. This is only one aspect of a sport-specific strength training program and one that should be included for only a select group of athletes. For most athletes however, too much muscle bulk is a hindrance. Consistent monitoring of physical measurements combined with nutritional discussions insure goal achievement without added “bulk”. And remember that a larger muscle is not necessarily a stronger muscle.

I tried strength training and got injured!

I can’t strength train due to a physical concern or injury.

IconOne: The single greatest limiter to success is giving to physical limitations rather than working through them.  With her degree in Sports Medicine, Shelly understand the human body and has a passion for biomechanic integration.
