Health & Fitness Training
Although ROCK Institute is a Sports Performance Center our Personal Training focuses on the prevention and treatment of non-athletic injuries as well. Our three divisions fit any and all people who want to improve their overall health and well being. It has been proven that most injuries originate from disparities in total strength, flexibility and Balance, posture, coordination, and joint stability. Through a concentrated 60 to 75 minute fitness assessment our State Certified Personal performance trainers will precisely measure the individual’s core strength, flexibility, balance, endurance, coordination, and more. After our assessment is administered, ROCK Institute will be able to develop an accurate and functional exercise/training plan to address the specific weaknesses and needs for the complete benefit of the client. Our fitness assessments for non-athletes are different from our Sport Performance assessment. To know more about our sports assessments please view Sports Training.
To create the optimum results whether a professional athlete or a non-athlete we test the core continuously. The core is like the nucleus or vital center of the body where all movement revolves around, providing a strong stable base for complete force driven distribution throughout the body equally. By developing a strong core the body becomes muscularly balanced and circulates properly relieving back pain as well as preventing future unneeded injuries.
Functional and purposeful strength describes the movements that are made everyday whether an athlete or non-athlete. The Human body ultimately and basically uses four regions that become major in day to day activities such as driving a car and turning your neck, or waking up in the morning and bending over to put your socks/pants/shoes on for the day. These four levels are vital and involve the ability to flex/turn or bend at the ankles, knees, hips and neck. Anyone with major pain to one of the four understands how hard it may be to be mobile on a daily basis which is why it is important for us to reproduce these specific movements in an exercise format to increase functional movement without constant pain.
