DIRECTION

Depending on the client, this stage can involve corresponding with your medical team (physical therapist, cardiologist, etc.). This stage will involve goal setting and planning workouts and training days. Mindset coaching is also prevalent. Posture and movement assessments are performed to construct a foundational program.

INSTRUCTION

This is the start of acquiring specific movement related skills to correct any postural deviations, reduce pain, and improve flexibility and  sport performance. While sessions during this stage are indeed a workout, there can be a varying amount of actual focused instruction to learn exercises properly.
