Here is my guidance of personal training to make you lose weight, gain strength, become more flexible or improve the lower back health.
To improve your fitness and sport performance, first, we need to to get rid of pain and discomfort due to injuries or chronic conditions. To do so, it is not enough to address the symptoms and find the roots. We need to analyze and change the "soil" in which the roots have been flourishing producing the symptoms. The "soil" is how we use the muscles. Which in tern is defined by the way we think of the movements. Since the work of the musculoskeletal system is governed by the central nervous system, a correct perception of any action is the key to a pain and injury free life. If you do not have any pain or discomfort we still review the "soil" to make sure your performance stays flawless and keeps improving without injuries.
When pain is gone and injuries are healing we gradually build specific strength, power, stamina, flexibility, mobility, coordination, and balance using the Russian gymnastics method of physical preparation, where the main focus is on training the movements and combinations as opposed to isolated muscles. Specific strength in combination with the ability to produce complex movements fast (power), for a long period (stamina), with a good range of motion (flexibility of the muscles and mobility of the joints), with great technique (coordination), and grace (balance) make you gymnast fit.
To improve your fitness even more we learn bodyweight strength skills such as l-sits, v-sits, handstands, press to handstands, one arm handstand, iron cross, etc. How far we go is limited only by your character, determination, and goals. Of course, our training is always a mix of these three steps with a heavy focus on the steps one and two because my main goal is to give you a pain-free life and a freedom of movement. Try it and see for yourself that my approach is very different, effective and enjoyable!
