Balance

No, not work/home life balance, muscle balance/imbalance…

Per the NASM blog, “efficient human movement and function requires a balance of muscle length and muscle strength around a joint”.

Causes of muscle imbalances can include stress, bad posture (especially with technology – mouse, keyboard, phone), chronic sitting, repetitive movement patterns or prior injury.

Consequences of muscle imbalances can include increased risk for falls, injury, and muscle strain.

When you work with a trainer, pre-existing muscle imbalances can be identified and corrected which may  allow for reduced risk of falling, reduced risk of injury, improved efficiency and results from a personalized exercise program.

Goal:Fit Method training starts with a thorough assessment and is followed by a personalized, tailored plan of corrective exercise targeting increased flexibility, balance, strength and endurance to maximize quality of life.
