OUR PHILOSOPHY

INTELLIGENT FITNESS FOR MAINTAINING AN ACTIVE LIFESTYLE

The way we generally understand fitness is for the purpose of achieving good overall health. Unfortunately, what we see is people end up hurting themselves or compromise their long term health without knowing it. The problem is most training systems and fitness programs out there fall short due to its limited scope and narrow approach. Being healthy isn't just about losing weight or increasing your heart rate, we also have to look at posture imbalances, mobility, core strength, brain functionality, breathing and nutrition. By looking at fitness holistically with neuroscience and kinesiology in mind, we are able help put you a better condition to move better and efficiently. This way you are able to work towards your goals while minimizing the risk of injury. As they say, work smarter, not harder. It’s still important to be physically challenged as long as we aren’t doing anything that can cause injury or physical pain. That is what true fitness and well-being should be about.

Everyone is different, but we all have the same goals – to look and feel healthy in our bodies! Our assessment identifies postural dysfunctions and movement inefficiencies to help you prepare for our onboarding process where you will learn all the tools you need for success.

During our onboarding process, we work with you to retrain movement patterns and muscle activation in order to obtain better posture and range of motion.

MASTERING FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENTS

what-our-clients-say
  • Fitsom workouts focus on functional movements and emphasize self myofascial release, which I did not realize was so important until I started working out here. I felt my posture and form improve tremendously.

    Christine D. via Yelp
  • Even though training is in a group setting, they are on their toes constantly monitoring everyone to make sure proper form is practiced. I swear they’ve got eyes on the back of their heads.

    Will C. via Yelp
  • These people are completely committed to you and your health. They are intelligent, educated, and continually learning. They bring their unique philosophy and approach to you, and they teach you.

    Jered M. via Yelp
  • After doing classes for a few months, I can honestly say my joints feel much better. My range of motion has increased back to where it was 10 years ago. I just feel great overall.

    Elizabeth J. via Yelp
  • I started to believe that my body mechanics and anatomy was not built for mobility. Since I’ve started at Fitsom, I have improved my mobility far more than I could have ever imagined.

    David K. via Yelp
  • Their whole body/person philosophy and approach is spot on. Start by identifying and healing issues, then build foundation carefully, and then move on to advanced strength.

    Jason W. via Yelp
  • The trainers are extremely knowledgeable and they strive to help you with your goals. You will definitely see results with all your hard work. I highly recommend Fitsom Studios!

    Jessica C. via Yelp

    Mark M. via Yelp
