Frequently Asked Questions

Why is Post Rehabilitation Training important?

When you have an injury, lets us a knee injury as an example, due to pain an individual will try to avoid the pain by using that leg as little as possible. This results in altered movement and activity levels. The altered movements place stress on additional areas of the body as they absorb more force then they normally would. Using our knee example, an individual would bare more weight on the unaffected leg to avoid the pain increasing the force on multiple joints, the ankle and knee for example. This increases the injury risk to these joints.

Another affect of an injury is a decrease in activity levels, this effects what we call, the physiologic limit, of tissues. The physiologic limit is the maximum amount of force the tissue can absorb before it becomes damaged. The less we use a muscle or joint, the lower that physiologic limit goes. When we exercise what we are doing is raising the amount of force or body can absorb. So using our knee injury example, if the person favors their injured knee and lessens their activity level, lets say for 4 weeks, the joints and muscles in that leg will not be able to absorb the same amount of force they normally would.

Post Rehabilitation Training is the process of raising this limit in a safe and effective manner. This lessens the risk of re-injury and allows clients to get back to doing the things they love quicker.

When can I begin Post Rehabilitation Training?

A client may begin Post Rehabilitation Training once their Doctor, Physiotherapist or Chiropractor have cleared them to begin an exercise program. If you wish to discuss our program with your medical practitioner, contact us and we will provide you with our criteria specific to the type of  injury or surgery you are recovering from.

What is the difference between Post Rehabilitation Training and regular Personal Training?

Post Rehabilitation Training is based on recovery protocols specific to the clients condition. Aside from the regular movement and fitness assessments performed for regular Personal Training an additional exercise screening is required in order to make sure our program is both safe and effective. This allows us to avoid contraindicated activities that could potentially put you at risk for injury, while addressing your needs and goals with exercises that are highly effective. Post Rehabilitation Training involves enhanced communication between our staff and our client’s medical practitioner, allowing that practitioner to incorporate exercise into their treatment plan. Session notes are kept and can be provided to your medical physician at their request, with your permission of course! Post Rehabilitation Training also involves a home exercise component, where clients are given exercises and a plan for exercising outside of Pure Integrated Training.

Regular Personal Training involves less initial screening, not as many future assessments, and less record keeping/communication. This form of training is suitable for clients who have no conditions requiring monitoring resulting in the program design taking less time.

Depending on the sport, the athlete and their skill level generally around the age of 13.

Athletes that have a strength and conditioning foundation set themselves up to take advantage of these opportunities.

How is this program different from regular personal training?

There are quite a few differences, the biggest are accountability, nutrition/supplementation and support. The biggest obstacle to most peoples success is commitment and nutrition. Many people fail to achieve their goal because they fail to commit fully to that goal and as a result their adherence to a regular exercise program suffers. By committing to 90 days, a set schedule and monitoring, not included in regular programs, your trainer will hold you accountable for your nutritional decisions and your attendance supporting your goal. Combined with encouragement and support from your trainer and other people committed to the same goal, you will find it easier to stick to your goals and achieve your results.

When does this program start?

The next 90 day program will be starting January 2016 contact us for more information.
