Our Methodology

The Importance of Muscle:

Sarcopenia: Age related loss of muscle mass and strength

As we age we inevitably confront a formidable foe: the continual degeneration of muscle tissue. This silent predator commences its hunt far earlier than most would believe, stripping us of around half a pound of lean muscle annually. When multiplied by the years, this translates into a devastating diminution of our functional capacity, making us vulnerable to an array of pressing health dilemmas.

Your everyday jog or leisurely cycle ride is insufficient in thwarting this progressive musculoskeletal disease. To provoke a real metamorphosis, the stimulation we give our bodies through exercise needs to cross a certain threshold. 

At Manotick Personal Trainer, we advocate a slow speed, strength training approach designed to stimulate muscle growth in the safest, highly efficient manner.

By using the latest scientifically validated evidence-based studies, we empower our clients to gain measurable improvements in various health indicators, from body fat and strength to cardiovascular proficiency, blood pressure, bone density, metabolism, and resilience to injury and sports activities.

A Rationale Approach to Exercise:

Prioritizing Workout Efficiency

In a world where time is a valuable asset, we vouch for the efficiency of our workouts – 30 minutes per session. At Manotick Personal Trainer, we only employ endorsed strength training techniques that has been rigorously scrutinized for optimal results and efficiency. 

Our methodology demands our clients to meticulously elevate and descend the weight in a slow, controlled fashion, eliminating momentum and acceleration. Consequently, your muscles remain in a state of constant contraction while safeguarding your joints from unwarranted forces.

The Value of Time Under Load

By removing momentum and acceleration, the muscle is optimally loaded, leading to rapid fatigue. Our state of the art gym delivers an optimally efficient balanced load for both eccentric and concentric movements which means that your usual session at Manotick Personal Trainer achieves fully realized strength training benefits under the half-hour mark. 

With Manotick Personal Training methodologies, no movement is ever wasted.
