It’s not about the “workout”
At FitLab, our focus isn’t on burning as many calories as possible or kicking your ass so hard you can’t walk the next day! We want you to be energized after your session and feel great about what you accomplished. However, that doesn’t mean we won’t push you to give us YOUR best for that session and EVERY session!
We believe in creating small and consistent victories over time for a sustainable and permanent change. The workout itself should be enjoyable, challenging, and effective. But the workout itself isn’t the vehicle that will drive you to the results you want. It’s the lifestyle change.
This is what FitLab is all about…
There are three areas FitLab focuses on for all of its clientele, each of which builds upon the other. In essence, you cannot make improvement in one of these areas without simultaneously making improvement in the others.
We believe that, if you move better, you will feel better, and look better as a result.
Moving better is our main focus! It’s what sets us apart from the other studios. You wouldn’t think to build a house without building the foundation first. We meet every client where they currently are in their abilities and work up from there. With a primary focus on building new strength and flexibility in the muscles and mobility in the joints, you build a strong foundation and base to improve from. Once you’ve built that base, not only will you move better, but you’ll have the capacity to train harder and longer to achieve results faster.
At FitLab, we want to help everyone build a capacity for and skill in movement that they will carry with them for the rest of their life.
Everyone thinks they just want to look good until they know what “better” feels like. Everyone thinks they just want to look good until they know what “better” feels like. There is nothing wrong with wanting to look good! We all want to look good! But one day “looks” will fade and all we will have left is our health and energy.
It usually starts after the 3rd or 4th week of training consistently. When you walk up the stairs and realize you’re not out of breath. You go to tie your shoes and nothing hurts. It usually starts pretty slow, but once it clicks, all of sudden you start to notice everything is easier. You have less pain. You have more energy. You can do more. You’re in better shape. You feel better.
And that’s only the beginning! There is so much more room for improvement and more “better” to be had. This is when people start to make their health a priority. They start eating better, training more. And they start taking better care of their bodies and minds. They act as if they’ve been missing out on the best part of life and they’re making up for lost time!
Form follows function.
In other words, if you can run 10 miles, do 15 pull-ups, and squat all the way down to your heels…quite often, you look like a person who can do those things!
When you start to improve your strength, you start to visually improve your body. When you’re able to do things you couldn’t do before, you will look different than before. Your posture will improve and you’ll carry yourself differently. You will not only look more confident, you will have more confidence. Oh, and you’ll be more mobile, coordinated, and stronger too. Life will be easier for you.
That’s not to say we never utilize training methods that focus on aesthetics. What we’re saying is you can’t have one without the other. And for once, that is a good thing!
