What to expect for your first appointment
& how treatment works
At your first appointment, our strength coach will review your health history as well as discuss and determine your unique goals for care. From here, you will be taken through a functional movement assessment, which allows your coach to develop a training program that is tailored to your health and performance goals.
Prior to your first appointment, intake forms will be sent to you via email, which you may complete at home and send back. You may also arrive 15 minutes early to your appointment to complete the forms at the clinic. Please ensure to bring/wear workout clothing and the appropriate footwear.
At Foundations, we will create a personalized program that best meets your needs and goals. We recognize that no two patients are the same and as such, we have created different types of training sessions. Sessions can be 30, 45 and 60 minutes in duration.
Also offered are:
- Lifting Technique sessions
- Group sessions/classes
- Programs for sports teams
- Online Nutrition Coaching
Who can benefit from strength training?
Simply put, everyone! Strength training puts emphasis on the fundamental human movements which every person should be able to perform to live a healthy, active life.
The fundamental human movements
These movements act as the building blocks of more complex movements and actions. Therefore, whether you are just starting your movement journey, or you are an athlete looking to finetune your skills, you can benefit from strength coaching! Our coach will help you work towards any goal(s) you may have, whether it is lifting a certain weight, running a particular distance, or even simply getting down on the floor to play with your little ones.
Those seeking rehabilitation care to either return to sports or to become more mobile in life will also benefit from this service, as the strength coach typically works alongside your chiropractor or massage therapist to develop and implement your care plan.
The Foundations Difference
Our Strength Coaching service has been truly built around the idea of integrated health. At Foundations, our Strength Coach will work closely with both you and your practitioner(s) to guide you through a multidimensional program designed to help you meet your unique health and performance goals.
