What is Post-Rehabilitation Fitness? PDF Print E-mail

How can we move easily, efficiently and without pain? It is something we all desire. From our cars to our bodies, modern American society accepts the metaphor that "movement is freedom!"

Anything that restricts our movement is seen as restricting our freedom. This is true for children who are "grounded" to adults who are "imprisoned" to patients or anybody else who's ever been "bound up" with pain or stiffness.

While everybody who comes to us has an athlete inside of them, not everybody can freely express themselves through movement because of pain or stiffness. Post-Rehab fitness is a key component in modern medical, orthopaedic and health services. Our goal is to help our clients re-attain the freedom of movement.

Sometimes we work independently with our clients - as is the case where pain and stiffness is relatively low and can be traced back to possible muscular or fascial dysfunction. Most often, we at Rhythmic Nature Fitness work very closely with the client, their doctor and a physical therapist. It is the Doctors duty to diagnose and medically treat the patients condition. When medical treatment is complete, the patient enters a rehabilitation period. The Physical Therapist is there to facilitate that process, further treating the condition and the localized, immediately afflicted area. The very rare, usually private, excellent PT will treat not only treat the injury but the whole body and the pre-existing conditions. Unfortunately, their time with the patient is often limited.

This leaves the patient with some very important questions...

Taking the Focus Off the Fat PDF Print E-mail

Todays health and fitness industry is obsessed with fat.

"Fat is bad!
Fat is the enemy!
Everybody needs to lose fat!
Buy XYZ to burn off the fat!"

Initial client expectations at my gym and in my private practice are centered around fat loss. It's just expected that as a trainer, my focus is on weight loss and more specifically fat-loss. Yet, nothing can be further from the truth. My goals for the client center around what is healthful.

RockTape - Something New for Performance and Rehab PDF Print E-mail

As a specialist in both Post-Rehabilitation and Sports Performance, I always keep an eye out for new products that may be beneficial to my clients. Knowing this, my ex-manager and friend, Kim Perez, asked if I was interested in attending a demo/talk about a new product - RockTape1. She has no current affiliation with the RockTape company other than as an interested professional like myself. We went to the demo two weeks ago and at the end, I purchased 2 rolls to try on myself and my clients. What follows are some of the observations and FAQs that I've compiled over the last two weeks.
