WHAT IS S.M.A.R.T FIT?

S.M.A.R.T Fit is a scientifically based group workout program that is customizable to each client's individual goals and abilities. 

 

Designed to allow our clients to track their progress, allowing for greater maintainable changes, while minimizing the occurrence of overuse injuries from improper program structure. 

 

This program offers your personalized training at a group class rate

At Temple Fitness we believe our clients should work towards mastery in several core competencies, that are the foundation of the S.M.A.R.T philosophy

STRENGTH

STRENGTH

  • By increasing our strength through practical and functional training, we can exert more force against resistance to make daily challenges and tasks easier. Our muscular strength should compliment and aid us within our daily routines (other hours of our day).

  • By utilizing strength training, we can decrease the loss of muscle and bone density as we age, while maintaining strong lean muscle.

    • Muscles vs ageing/bone density fight against ageing atrophy of your muscles.

  •  Muscle is the body’s fat-burning machinery. Through resistance training, we will build and maintain a good fat burning engine which will aid us through our transition.

  • Your heart doesn’t know if it is running or not

  • TONE/lean muscle

MOBILITY

MOBILITY

  • Keeping our muscles and joints healthy as we start to gain strength transformations we are looking for is key to continue seeing consistent results. Mobility is our ability to move freely, without stress on the body

    • Assessment - Test and asses weakness/weak links, muscular imbalances/lack of range of motion, with the purpose of assuring safety during exercise, attaining your specific goals, and providing evidence of progress while validating your efforts over time.

    • ​Active mobility will help us find new and different ranges of motion that can help in decreasing day-to-day muscular aches and pains; as well as open new doors within your current training program.

  • Knowing what is causing those aches and pains you feel in your daily routine through assessments.

    • Rolling, static stretching, active mobility, treatment (Chiropractor/Physiotherapist/Graston/Massage). Movement assessments to identify/solve weak links that could hinder your progress in the gym​

ATHLETICISM

ATHLETICISM​

  • Athletes are the peak of physical fitness and most common individuals that the population seeks to emulate in physical ability,aesthetics, and body composition. Therefore, we want to build the qualities and characteristics seen in athletes such as:

    • Agility: The ability to create power, produce strength, and be agile while maintaining proper control throughout the range of motion in response to a stimulus

    • Coordination: The organization of different movement patterns that help build balance, rhythm, and spatial awareness

    • Transformation/Body Composition: Attain your ideal body weight and composition by increasing lean muscle mass and decreasing body fat

    • Cardiovascular Health: Increase the ability of the heart, lunges, and blood vessels to supply muscles with the oxygen needed to thrive and perform at the optimal level.

RECOVERY

RECOVERY

  • Recovery is one of the most underrated aspects of long-term exercise/physical activity success. With and increased focus on proper rest between sets, workouts, and a general day to day basis. Simple strategies away from the gym (ie. Getting enough sleep, consistently drinking enough water) will allow the body to recover and repair itself more effectively.

  • Through SMART Programming, we can decrease the chances of overuse injuries by allowing for a wide range and variety of exercises. Making proper decisions in nutrition, supplementation, meals, and hydration to fuel the body will help the body to maintain optimal performance.

TECHNIQUE

TECHNIQUE​

  • Movement capacity, movement competency, reduced injury risk, getting/mastering the basics = Long term success in the gym

  • Movement Capacity: Being able to adapt to a changing environment smoothly, through all the planes of motion

  • Movement Competency: Building on the fundamental movement skills such as:

    • Stability: Maintain your balance and control while moving​

    • Locomotion: Skills used to move the body from one point to another

    • Manipulation: Throwing and receiving force from objects
