The Science Behind Our Personal Training
The basis of our training methods, the Optimal Performance Training (OPT) Model, has five phases of training:
Phase 1: Stabilization/endurance
This phase emphasizes on the importance of coordination. The goals within this phase are to improve muscular endurance, enhance joint stability, increase flexibility, improve posture.
Phase 2: Strength/endurance
In Phase 2, the goals are: to improve stabilization endurance, enhance joint stabilization, and increase lean body mass.
Phase 3: Hypertrophy
Phase 3 goals are typically designed for individuals who would like maximal muscle growth and this phase would be used for individuals in bodybuilding.
Phase 4: Maximal Strength
In Phase 4, the goal is for the individual to be able to lift heavy loads and improve peak performance.
Phase 5: Power
To get to this level, the individual MUST complete the phases of stabilization and strength levels. Speed and power are heavily focused on within this level.
In summary, the OPT Model is designed for the achievement of the individual’s fitness goals while correcting their muscle imbalances, stabilizing joints, while gaining proper neuromuscular functioning. In addition, the benefits of utilizing the OPT Model significantly decrease the chance for injury.
What does all of the above mean to you? You’ll feel great, you’ll lose fat, you’ll be healthier, and you should live longer.
OPT™ utilises a progression from movement assessments with corrective exercise strategies, to integrated stabilisation and strength training, culminating in specific performance and power training (for athletes), whether clients are training to get stronger or to simply get more active and feel better.
Incorporating complex movement patterns, stability training and core strength and stabilisation into all training programmes, results in a diverse and engaging workout programme that produces maximum results no matter what the goal. By incorporating multiple types of training—flexibility, cardio respiratory, core, balance, reactive, speed, agility, quickness, and strength—into programming, the revolutionary and easy-to-use OPT method improves all biomotor abilities and builds high levels of functional strength, neuromuscular efficiency, and dynamic flexibility.
