The loss of movement at any joint is a potential indication of decreased ability of those muscles that cross that joint to contract. This lack of muscle contraction and possible lack of strength results in a decreased range of motion, and therefore a decrease in one’s ability to move efficiently and powerfully.
The team at Fitness-Tek are strong believers of the science and thought process that goes into the MAT process, so much that everyone of our personal training sessions starts with a Muscle Activation Techniques assessment.
Our team is committed that you leave our care not just with a better looking body but that you leave with a body that functions and feels better for years to come!
This is where everyone gets started. Regardless of your desired goal the MAT Assessment is the starting block.
We believe strongly at Fitness-Tek that getting started on the right foot when taking on a new lifestyle or starting your path to recovery from injury is crucial to your long-term success and happiness. That is why everyone that walks through the doors at one of our locations starts with this amazing and powerful tool, MAT.
You will spend approximately 1.5 hours with a Master Level specialist for this session. In this time, you and your specialist will be going over the science behind MAT and how it works, your medical history, your goals for the session and going forward, what you can expect from your session and a full body assessment and treatment.
In this session, you and your specialist will spend between 45-60 min going back through the limitations that where found during your assessment. The limitations that are still present will be address in order of importance based of the mechanical relationship they hold to your dysfunction. Those areas that are found to need more work will be prescribed very specific exercises for you to do between sessions.
This is the next level of training you will progress to with your Fitness-Tek trainer. Fitness-Tek’s personal training sessions take many different forms, created uniquely per each specific need of each and every client. There is no cookie cutter approach with Fitness-Tek. The information you MAT specialist gathers from your assessment will be passed to you trainer and together they will begin to craft a program that literally, fits you!
