Strength & Resistance Training In Vancouver BC
As you become more mobile, stable and self-aware, we will begin to move into strength and resistance training. Our training programs vary, but they consistently focus on the importance of movement and function. Initially, we work with body weight to correct any muscle imbalances. Next, we work towards adding external resistance (weights). This does not mean lifting random barbells over your head, rather, we put you through a variety of progressively intensive resistance exercises designed to challenge and increase your strength, flexibility, mobility and endurance.
