Private and Semi-Private Training: All clients come in for a private assessment.  In this meeting, we discuss many topics including the client’s health history, the client’s goals, and potential training schedules.  We also discuss the ATC Center’s approach to strength training, and conduct a Functional Movement Screen (FMS) to get a baseline of the client’s movement quality.  Based on this discussion and the testing, the client is provided an individualized program.  Private training is 1×1, just the client and myself.  In a semi-private environment, there may be as many as 6 clients training at once, but typically its no more than 2-4 at one time.

Nearly 90% of the training at the ATC Center is conducted in the semi-private atmosphere.  Training alongside your peers creates a great camaraderie with positive encouragement from all the members.  Many clients develop great friendships with each other.  Training in this environment facilitates a confident environment where each client can push themselves and each other to a new level, and have great fun doing it.

One-Time Consultation:  Whether due to time or distance constraints, not everyone can regularly train at the ATC Center.  In these instances, some clients come in for one-time consultations.  These meetings also include the FMS screen, and may include fitness testing, or skill coaching.  The client may be provided with a customized program to be performed remotely.  Many clients come back in six to eight week intervals for reassessment.

Ultra-Sound Body Fat Analysis:The ATC Center uses the IntelaMetrix BodyMetrix system to measure and analyze body fat and lean body mass in clients.  The BodyMetrix device uses ultrasound to record these measurements.  When ultrasound waves penetrate tissue, reflections occur at different tissue boundaries.  Ultrasound allows the BodyMetrix to detect the true fat thickness at each measurement point, without painful or embarrassing skin pinching commonly used with caliper methods.  By making measurements at multiple points on the body, an accurate body fat percentage can be determined.  Ultrasound measurements are extremely accurate, not subject to user variability in execution, and are not affected by hydration, exercise level, and caffeine intake, therefore providing consistent results.
