Balance training takes a unique approach to improving your balance and movement in comparison to most balance training programs. The reason for this is recognition that world-class balance skills require two distinct events to occur:
Signal Quality - Real world balance skill requires a very precise body-wide "symphony" of coordinated neural signals
Signal Integration - In addition to having excellent signal quality, we also need exceptional signal integration. This is all about how your BRAIN processes and integrates the neural information it's receiving from the eyes, the inner ear and the body
This is what you will experience with Balance Training
Increased Movement Ease & Efficiency, and Decreased Pain
Vastly Improved Muscle Tone and Movement Skill
Improved Posture and Stability
Decreased Daily Muscle Tension and Improved Resistance to Stress
Sara will not just address your symptoms, but will help you find the root cause of the problem. She will start by analyzing your gait, posture, and functional movement to determine strength/flexibility exercises you can do to eliminate pain and restore balance to your body.
She'll help you identify the postures, movements, and habits in life that are adding stress to your body, slowing your ability to heal.
She can also help you determine which organs in your body are functioning optimally and which are not and what you can do about it. She'll find ways to improve the function of your brain and nervous system which restores fluidity and makes movement feel effortless.

You may be on your way to lifting your max weight, completing that full push-up, squatting like never before or perhaps for the first time, feeling alive because you are out of pain!
Every time we are doing any kind of strength training, our brain is learning how much force to create. It’s learning for how long do I want to create that force. It’s learning how quickly do I need to apply that force.
Very importantly, in what angles, what postures, and what postures do I need to apply that force. This is where a lot of people run into danger zones in their training because they adopt a certain training program. It makes them move in a certain way. They get really good at moving in that way. They become stronger. Their body changes. This can also result in injury down the road because of the neglect of learning the foundmentals or the basics.
Learn bone rythm, how to muscle test yourself and most of all test your strength!
Our evaluation process is unmatched in the fitness world. Similar to a visit to a neurologist’s office, we provide our members with a complete neurological screening (minus MRI’s and CT scans) called the “Neuro-Flow” assessment. The difference between what a neurologist does and what we do is we’re looking for signs of brain function which may actually be impeding strength and flexibility, and/or causing pain. We then are able to pin point what parts of your brain need to be exercised or activated in order to improve the connection between the brain and body.
During this 60 min. Assessment, you will walk away with simple to do, home tools for homework that could instantly change your life in this one session if you follow what your Coach has recommended.
• A review of your health and fitness questionnaire that you've already filled out • A variety of assessments and measurements with education around appropriate health related fitness goals • An assessment on the workout floor to determine stability, balance, intensity and technique
Ask your Consultant to explain anything that you don’t understand or are unsure of. You will receive the best possible recommendation to achieve your results, and a copy of your statistics will be emailed to you or printed off.
We understand that clients are at different levels when it comes to exercise experience and knowledge. We truly provide the best possible member experience and get you the best results through assessment and education. For example, professional athletes have ongoing assessments to measure their progress and performance even though they are well versed in training methods. We know you will walk out of your consultation learning something new about how to improve your health while making your exercise experience more challenging and rewarding.
Many fitness facilities will provide members with a generic work out program with their membership. Because fitness needs are so different, the majority of these programs will either get some basic results for a very short time, not get any results, create further problems or potential imbalances or injuries, and lead to frustration and monotony. Exercise programs are available on a myriad of web sites and in numerous fitness and health magazines. If that’s all it took to get results, there would be no need for you to register with a fitness facility and meet with a Fitness Consultant. Most members require far more than a program. In fact, the real cause for lack of results has more to do with knowledge, technique, support, motivation and accountability. Your Consultant will do their very best to work on the causes of any obstacles standing n the way of your results, and will listen closely to your concerns and needs. Rest assured, you will be provided with the best possible solution to get you on track, allowing you to maximize your membership experience. Don’t settle for anything less!

BlazePods, are a flash reflex exercise system, which is to say that they’re a fancy way of working a game of “Whack-A-Mole”into your exercise routine. They’re touch-sensitive pods that can be attached to almost any surface. They light up different colors and all you have to do is give them a good whack to turn the light off. I love them because they’re just so versatile – you can work them into pretty much any exercise routine, regardless of what you’re trying to achieve.
If you’re training for a competitive sport, then BlazePods, are a brilliant way to introduce reflex training into your workouts in a way that is hard to emulate outside of a competitive environment. A great training tool for student atheletes!
BlazePods can be attached to almost any surface? That includes pull-up bars! Attach a pod to the bar either side of your hands to make a static hang that little bit more challenging by removing each hand in an alternating fashion to deactivate the pod.
One of the best things about BlazePods, is that they don’t just train your body. They can also be programmed to flash different colors so that you can make a game of them. It’s a great way to keep both your mind and your body sharp while enjoying a communal workout.
