PRIMARY GOALS

  • Improve core stability
  • Increase muscle balance and flexibility
  • Improve cardiovascular and muscle endurance
  • Increase lean muscle mass
  • Improve functional performance - specific skill training (e.g. sports)

HPPT STAGES:

  • Complimentary Fitness Assessment
  • Stage 1: Muscle Endurance / Activation & Stabilization
  • Stage 2: Muscle Strength / Hypertrophy
  • Stage 3: Power Endurance / Complex Training

The initial goal of SHAPE's unique approach to exercise training called High Performance Personal Training (HPPT), is to ensure proper stability from head to toe, but particularly in the "core". We want to ensure that you have a stable platform (or "core") from which you can graduate to more advanced training techniques. Further, ensuring proper function of the core musculature can help prevent future low-back and neck pain, as well as improve results of exercise in general. From the information gathered during the initial assessment, we can determine areas where you need improvement. At SHAPE, all of our highly-skilled conditioning specialists implement high- intensity, metabolic training methods which are efficient, effective and fun.

FITNESS ASSESSMENTS

The journey toward optimal fitness should begin with a comprehensive functional assessment by the regulated health care professionals at SHAPE. During this consultation, the goals are to:
  • Provide you with a current status report of your body composition, health and fitness level.
  • Screen for, and assess any musculoskeletal injuries.
  • Assess functional movement patterns and dynamic muscle function.
During the assessment, one of our high performance conditioning specialists will determine your fitness and lifestyle goals. They will then evaluate the following parameters utilizing current, valid, and efficient measurements, which can then be compared to age-matched, population-based normal values:
  • Patient Statistics: Age, Weight & Height
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Resting Blood Pressure
  • Body Composition: Fat & Lean Mass Percentages
  • Anthropometric Measurements (Girth Measurements)
  • Waist-Hip Ratio
  • Muscular Strength
    • Max Wall Sit Time
    • Standardized Max Push-Up Test
  • Core Stability
    • Max Plank Time
  • Flexibility
    • Sit & Reach Test
