Areas of Excellence:
Motivate individuals by setting goals, providing feedback and holding them accountable. Strengths and opportunities will be measured through various assessments and tracked on a consistent basis to gauge improvements and make customized adjustments where needed. Individuals will also be educated on all aspects of wellness, including fitness as well as general health and nutrition guidelines.
Increase your comfort zone and familiarity with anything that you might encounter in life and thus expanding your world to encompass more of the ‘real world’. Practice and train those movements that are not only natural, but necessary in life. We fail at the margins of our own excellence in terms of duration, load, and type of movement- Functional Fitness aims to expand those margins to have true General Physical Preparedness.

This session improves flexibility and mobility through lengthening and releasing sore muscles. This approach combines dynamic stretching, increasing range of motion and blood and oxygen flow, with static stretching, a series of static poses that target the deeper tissues that lay beneath the muscle.
These programs provide individuals interested in training for running events with time/distance schedules and nutritional tips. Our goal is to provide a supportive, yet challenging environment that celebrates accomplishments while stressing accountability and discipline.
Triathlons can be intimidating, so this program helps individuals prepare for race day with transition area strategy, training schedules, and nutritional tips. Technique will be refined and maximized for each event (running, cycling, and swimming).

This session provides a thorough understanding of the balance between nutrition and fitness with overall (and on-going) wellness. There will be discussion of the strategies for improving overall health, the life-long benefits, and the potential hazards associated with no action.

We work closely with individuals and organizations to develop a fitness and wellness program that is customized to meet your specific needs, goals, location, time commitments, and investment requirements.
Activate Your Talent begins the wellness program with an opening assessment, which allows participants to understand where they are at on the wellness spectrum. Information and technique instruction is provided during this phase. Additionally, the benchmarking (tracking our scores on the signature workouts) increase awareness by creating a social incentive that causes us to push ourselves beyond what we would do on our own.
In the Activation phase, AYT provides actionable steps for individuals to improve their wellness through the implementation of a physical fitness and nutritional regiment. In each workout, we push participants to their relative threshold (the edge of their personal capability), in order to maximize performance and results.
Activate Your Talent ensures that the positive changes in overall wellness are actualized through repetition of workouts. Throughout the program, participants become more comfortable with the exercises, which allows them to ramp up the intensity and results. Before each workout, we post the scores from the previous attempts and reflect on any lessons learned. After each workout, we ask participants to think about what the best part of the workout was and what they will do better next time- this iterative process is crucial to creating enduring change.
I am blown away by the results. It’s incredible! It’s making me re-look my whole approach to fitness. What you had us doing was working like crazy and I didn’t even realize it at the time.
