“After a work injury, I saw a number of experts and attended physical therapy at ATI for 6 weeks. It seemed no one could accurately diagnose the reason for chronic Achilles tendonitis and knee inflammation. My diet was excellent and I was very active prior to my injury. Optimum Peak Fitness quickly identified my issues (poor gait, weak muscle groups, poor posture, and tracking issues). The road to recovery has just begun” – Joseph Jolliff

Who is Personal Training For?

Many people have the misconception that personal training is reserved for the rich and famous or for professional athletes. However, the truth is that everyone can benefit from having sessions with a fitness professional. Our personal training sessions will help you achieve your goals with greater efficiency. You will be able to train more effectively and even gain the motivation you need to overcome the challenges you’ll face along your fitness journey.

How do you set expectations for a patient?

A successful physical therapist sets realistic goals and objectives with their patients. The purpose of the question is to determine the candidate’s process for creating expectations and communicating them to patients. What to look for in an answer:

Communication skills to provide clearly defined expectations that the patient understands
Ability to be flexible and adapt to a patient’s changing needs and circumstances
Expertise in assessing a patient and creating appropriate expectations

Should I approach my sessions with a plan?

Yes, this will help you get the most out of your workout. Decide which muscle groups you want to work on, whether you’re doing a strength session or a HIIT workout and what equipment you’ll need. Then, think about how many reps and sets you’re going to perform. That way, you won’t waste time procrastinating and you’ll work harder as a result.

Do I need to work out every day?

A good workout week doesn’t necessarily mean training every day. Three to four gym or home workouts each week is enough if you work as hard as you can in each session. Try to balance the week with a mix of cardio, HIIT, strength and yoga or Pilates. However, when it comes to being active you should aim to move as much as you can every day – whether that’s with brisk walking, jogging, swimming, gardening or putting your all into the housework!
