OUR PHILOSOPHY

FOCUSING ON CORE PRINCIPLES TO DELIVER RESULTS
The fitness industry is currently stuck in a "no pain, no gain" mentality. This way of thinking has completely overlooked the way our human bodies were intended to move. However, Fitsom Studios is not like other typical gyms in Sacramento. Regardless of where you think you are on the fitness spectrum, everyone will benefit from our holistic approach to fitness. Our philosophy is simple yet powerful: build a strong foundation then work our way up. In order to build a skyscraper, one must first have a solid foundation to build upon. This foundation is created through a rehabilitation process that follow these 4 core principles:

ADDRESSING BODY DYSFUNCTION

Self-Myofascial Release
Living in modern society causes us to develop poor body mechanics that create imbalances and dysfunctions in our bodies over time. Prolonged states of immobility or repetitive motions of daily living are to blame due to certain muscles having to work harder for underutilized areas. To counter these damaging effects, we teach Self Myofascial Release, a self massage technique used as a therapeutic way to restore structural balance to the human body.
 

DEVELOPING BODY AWARENESS

Develop Body Awareness
Chances are, if you’ve been living with body dysfunction, then you have probably gotten use to having poor body awareness as well. Body awareness is about having control over specific muscles and your entire body to perform any physical action optimally. Developing body awareness is essential in that, the body is suppose to move and perform as one. Once full body awareness is achieved, then we can start to build strength and agility in our body.

 

MASTERING FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENTS

Programs Not Workouts
Functional movements follow proper human biomechanics. If your training does not reinforce natural human movements, then you are a risk of injury and developing dysfunctions. Rather than random, generalized workouts, our trainers intentionally develop classes that not only challenge and push you but teach you all you need to know in order to get you body to function as one.
 

ACHIEVING A FIT STATE OF MIND

A Fit State of Mind
Having a Fit State of Mind means that you are willing to accept and conquer life’s challenges to find a better and healthier version of you. It’s necessary to cross the line between what you’re used to and what is outside of your comfort zone in order to see change.
