There is a phrase that gets tossed around in my circle of colleagues that goes, "if all you have is a hammer, everything you see is a nail," and this best sums up the Antidote method. Antidote private coaching goes far beyond personal training. Much like a hammer can be useful for some projects, some exercise modalities may be too. However, when the time or goal comes that requires a different tool, some trainers will be left banging their hammer somewhere that it does more harm than good. As a personal trainer, one focuses on exercise. As a Soma Trainer, my focus is the body. Powerlifting, athletic performance, strength and conditioning, cardiorespiratory fitness, mobility training, bodybuilding, sports injury rehabilitation, senior fitness-- all are simply progressions from a balanced base of conditioning for the body. The best part is that once we define your goal, you will be given the tools that will help you to achieve it.
Research has consistently proven that sport specialization and sport-specific training eventually causes injury instead of preventing it. With that in mind, Antidote gives you the specific tools to improve towards your goals while giving you an understanding of how to use the full toolbox. You will learn to manipulate muscular range of motion to target areas for growth, endurance, or power, and then learn how to integrate them into the bigger movements necessary for recreation or sports. Skip the chicken and broccoli, you will learn a sustainable way to choose foods that work with your diet for performance based nutrition, and, most importantly, you will learn ELDOA. Personal trainers, just like hammers, are everywhere, but if you want to fill your toolbox, choose Antidote.
