At Strength House in our Private Personal Training Facility in the City of London our method begins with a comprehensive full body biomechanics assessment, not a workout. We will test every major joint in your body looking to identify weaknesses. We’ll assess you for postural imbalances and areas that may be causing pain. From day one, you’ll have the right techniques to turn your weakest spots into your most resilient.
A biomechanics assessment is about one fundamental thing: avoiding injury so you can reach the long-term. There’s nothing more frustrating than making a start on your health only to suffer a setback early on. It happens all too often in your average gym and even in personal training. But at Strength House, we use every available tool to prevent it.
Every body is different, but the musculoskeletal system and application of biomechanics is a constant. Exercise trends may come and go, but exercise mechanics derived from physics will always remain.
Taking into consideration the mechanics of your body is what will help you keep moving through life strong and pain free. Our personal training service at Strength House uses individualised biomechanics to bridge the gap between post physio rehab, injury prevention and your training goal, whether that’s :
- Fat loss / Weight loss
- Training and preparation for a race or specific calisthenics performance goal.
- Learning the most efficient way to build muscle with YOUR body.
- Improving energy and strength for day to day health.
When on the gym floor at Strength House our personal trainers ensure you're working in ranges where you have the ability to contract muscle, we call this our active range of motion. If we are training in ranges where we are unable to contract muscle then this leaves the stress on our passive tissues such as tendons and ligaments, we call this our passive range and this may not be the most intelligent way to train especially if we are looking to train for the long term injury free.
We also work with clients that are pre and post natal. It is important to train with a trainer that understands physiological changes and medical conditions encountered during and post pregnancy. We can also work with our neighbours Six Physio, who have a in house women’s health specialist - a service we recommend for all pre and post natal clients.
Making changes to your nutrition is a lot easier on paper than in practice. We tailor our nutrition service to your lifestyle and tastes, taking into account what’s feasible in your day-to-day on the journey to achieving your goals.
Your goals might be weight management (fat loss, or muscle gain). It might simply be implementing healthier habits so you can perform and feel your best at work or just in day to day life. Or you might be training for a race or event and need extra nutrition advice to support you to the finish line.
Whatever goal you may have, we support you with evidence-based science. Not pseudoscience. Not cutting out food groups (*unless you don't enjoy certain foods or it’s specified by doctor or dietician for diagnosed health reasons). And certainly not fear mongering any food or drink.
Nutrition shouldn’t cause you stress, or be difficult to implement in your day to day. It should add to your life, not take away from it.
We look at the long term. Our aim is to help you understand nutrition and feel empowered with fact's not fiction so you can pull on this knowledge throughout your life.
