Client-Centered Care

You are the expert of your own body and life. A performance program is designed to increase quality of life. No one knows your life expectations greater than yourself! Regular facilities will put you on their program, push towards someone else's goal, and will have you working tirelessly with no rhyme or reason.

We believe in making decisions based on what really works best for you, not based on what we think should work best for you. This is client-centered, rather than coach-centered, coaching.

STRIVE uses leading research to assess and improve movement, strength, and conditioning qualities to achieve the quality of life you desire.

Clients have their own abilities and reasons for training. Our job is to find and develop these. When a client can identify their own limiting factors and then - more excitingly - propose their own solutions, we have a recipe for sustainable, long- term lifestyle change.

The problem with exercise facilities today is that most exercise programs assume that clients move well to begin with. Exercise is often about quantity. Most look at exercise as frequency, intensity, and duration. People are wearing electronic devices to measure heart rate, calories and steps. This idea of looking at quantity rather than quality has lead to increase in musculoskeletal injuries and thus what was supposed to be about fitness has now turned into a health problem.

As physical therapist Gray Cook says, you shouldn't load dysfunctional movement patterns. Adding weight to a structure that can't support it isn't going to make that structure any better. In fact what our clinicians have discovered is that it leads to injuries. Worse yet is that you, the client, gives up on your goals of fitness and health because every time you begin to train again you soon find yourself injured. We believe in safe and effective training. We will assist you in achieving your fitness goals and keep you healthy in doing so.

At STRIVE we perform exercises with integrity (quality) so you can achieve independence and sustain activity for as long as possible without injury. At STRIVE we need to protect you from injury. First, do no harm and then progress in a direction of independence and sustainability.
