Personal Trainer Manual
This is a digital downloadable version of our trainer manual. This philosophy of training, is one of the safest and most respected methodologies used today. Founded in the 1970’s, it has endured the test of time and dozens of peer-reviewed scientific studies. Today it is used by many professional and NCAA athletic teams, and is even used in the management of diseases and conditions. The S.P.A.R.T.A. Training philosophy has proven safe and effective in nearly every demographic, proving successful for Osteoporosis patients in their 80’s, professional athletes in every major sport, and every one else in between.
S.P.A.R.T.A. personal trainers are experts in providing meaningful muscular and cardio-respiratory exercise in an efficient time period. Our approach takes advantage of the body’s natural physiology. Simply speaking, higher quality exercise takes less time. It is a common misconception that positive changes in body fat, cholesterol, blood pressure, triglyceride levels, muscular strength and other health indicators can only be achieved through long and frequent aerobic exercise. It is our experience that this myth serves as a great disincentive to a healthy lifestyle. These improvements can be achieved in less than 1.5 hours of significant exercise a week as recent research has shown. This approach will positively impact all systems of the body including the muscular as well as cardiorespiratory.
