Mobility is something that most people struggle with on a daily basis. When you have limited range of motion everyday tasks such as reaching for something out of the backseat of your car can be a challenge. At Wilcox Wellness & Fitness we follow a functional training style – that means we work to prepare the body for everyday life.
In addition to our cardiovascular and strength training we also focus on mobility and flexibility so that we can more more freely and gracefully in our daily life. This focus on mobility and flexibility also help prevent injury which gives our clients the confidence to play harder.
Our mission at Wilcox Wellness & Fitness is to help our clients enhance their lives through forming healthful habits that they can sustain for a lifetime. We are constantly looking to improve and find better ways to coach, motivate, and inspire our clients. We work together weekly in a trainer skills workshop where experiment on each other and polish new skills and techniques for our training sessions with clients.
Each week, we assign one of our trainers with a different challenge to help elevate our program. In this session, Scott’s challenge was ‘Mobility in Motion’ – helping our clients address typical areas of tightness.
Scott put us through some amazing shoulder and hip mobility movements. We all felt amazing when the session was over. Focusing on these type of mobility exercises will help you with your posture and overall range of motion.
Our Peak Performance System – which is our 2-part warm up and 1-part cool down -works these type of mobility movements into our training program. Work on your mobility as part of your training plan – you will be so glad you did!
The kettlebell is an excellent tool that we use to help our clients: Improve coordination, agility, posture, and alignment. Kettlebells can also be used to help enhance cardiovascular conditioning, strength, and flexibility. In our group training program, we have a kettlebell and TRX session that is focused on building functional strength throughout the body. Come let us show you how much fun training with kettlebells is and let us help you get some amazing results.
Today we had a great In-Service from Physical Therapist, Dennis Mullins from Therapy Solutions on the importance of for Dynamic Stability. The trainers are pumped to use what they learned today in their upcoming training sessions.
Weekly our trainers work on breaking down each movement inch by inch to ensure that our clients are using the best form & technique. This focus on form helps our clients make the most out of every rep of every exercise. Workout smarter, not harder! Happy Training!
At Wilcox Wellness & Fitness, we place a huge focus on form. So huge that our trainer team dedicates an hour every week to work with each other to break down each movement inch by inch to ensure that you, our clients are using the best form and technique. This is will always allow you to progress more quickly without risk of injury. We want to help you work smarter rather than one hundred miles per hour by using the proper form and technique for every rep of every exercise. You may find that we take the time to slow you down to help you with your technique. We would rather have you do something super slow with little or no weight than to do it with bad form with heavy weight this, in the long run is going to help you progress more quickly.
Happy Training from all of us at Wilcox Wellness & Fitness!!!
Here is a snippet of the Metabolic Functional Circuit Katie put the trainers through today for the trainer development session. The goal of the metabolic functional circuit was to keep the heart rate high while building a foundation of exercises to prepare for everyday movements – ex: rotating while shoveling snow. This style of metabolic functional training boosts the metabolism for hours after leaving the gym. Thanks for a great workout Katie!
