  • Personal Fitness Training

     

    Personal training is often thought of as a luxury, and, to some people, as unnecessary. For 26 plus years as a personal trainer, improper and/or ineffective and/or potentially injurious strength exercise form is seen on a daily basis. There are two ways to approach fitness. As if you already know everything - begin a program without regard to learning basic essentials, or proper form and techniques, and suffer the consequences later from multiple and repeated micro-injuries that usually go unnoticed. Or, get the instruction from a trained professional to ensure the best results for your particular body, health, ability and limitations. You can just do it, or, you can learn how do it right.

    Personal training, whether utilized for a few sessions to get set and go out of your own, or, as regular and continual sessions, is an investment in your body, mind and spirit...an investment in your well being (read "Forget Your Resolutions" in the blog post below).

    • All personal training is done one-to-one only to ensure each client gets the best possible work out each time and achieves their best possible results over time.
    • New clients go through a brief health history and basic lifestyle consultation.
    • Second, is reviewing goals and aspirations for training. Sometimes it is necessary to either temper those goals or advance them.
    • Clients have the option of signing up for 60 or 30 minute sessions.
    • Parameters are then establish for an initial work out program; one that is set to ease the body into strength training if one is a strength exercise newbie, or more advanced according to the individual client's health, history, experience and age.
    • Different exercises and variations of exercises will be used so that sessions are not a continual repetition of the same exercises
    • Degree of difficulty of exercises will be increase or changed using either or a combination of, weight, repetitions, duration, or variation of the exercises
    • Each client's fitness/work-out program is individually tailored to their particular goals and needs, according to their particular health levl, physical abilities and limitations.

    About scheduling personal training sessions:

    • Clients are urged to set a regular weekly schedule (same days and times) for sessions.
    • If scheduling week-to-week, a 1 week advanced notice is required for each appointment.
    • Continually changing appointment days and times on a weekly to monthly basis can result in being bumped or eliminated from scheduling as preference is given to clients who set regular days and times for sessions, especially during the busy seasons.
    • Appointments canceled with less than a 24 hour notice are charged for. The only exceptions are medical crises or auto/bodily accidents. Chronic missed appointments will result in a reduction of weekly appointments (from 3 to 2 per week, etc.), and possible dismissal as a client.

    Would you choose a doctor or dentist or chiropractor or physical therapist who did not complete the proper, professional education and training and successfully pass the required examinations for a license to practice, and, who does not complete the required professional continuing education required to maintain that license to practice?

    Those same professional standards should be applied to "personal/athletic trainers" - someone who has valued and taken the time, effort and expense to complete the proper, professional education and training, successfully pass the required examinations for a certification to practice, and, who completes the required professional continuing education required to maintain that certification to practice.

    David is one of the extremely small number of chiropractors world wide who have the ability to perform gentle, vertebra-specific adjusting by hand, never using forceful or random spinal adjusting, adjusting with table parts that drop or move, adjusting with instruments, or general manipulation.

     

    David's 30 years experience as a chiropractor include a general private practice in New Bedford, practices in Plymouth and Peabody Massachusetts which were self-pay only and strictly chiropractic wellness practices, working as a staff chiropractor in a Boston practice, and a self-pay only, strictly chiropractic wellness, private patient, house calls practice serving parts of New Bedford and Dartmouth Massachusetts.

     

    Seven years into private practice, having been active in daily fitness for more than 15 years, David earned national certification as a Personal Fitness Trainer through the Athletics & Fitness Assoc. of America, Sherman Oaks California. At the time, AFAA was only one of two nationally accredited certifying organizations to require candidates to complete classroom and practical training, as well as successfully complete practical testing in addition to written testing.

     

    He has more than 23 years experience as a personal trainer, including private clients for in-home and on-site personal training, as an independent contractor out of fitness centers in Plymouth and Pembroke, Massachusetts, for the Massachusetts Criminal Justice Training Council’s police cadet physical training program, at fitness clubs in San Diego and Solana Beach, California, and at the Newport County (Rhode Island) YMCA.

    "...when people have medical treatments for their illnesses,

    it rids the illness only from their body but not from their energy, so the illness returns."

    ~ Anita Moorjani

     

    "....align your subconscious mind with the conscious suggestion that

    you have an energy body,

    and if you can heal the energy that presupposed your illness,

    then you can quickly and permanently heal your physical body."
