How it Works:

Working as a team, you and your personal trainer will determine which forms of exercise are most appropriate to achieve your own personal goals and increase your well-being.

Exercise relieves stress and helps you feel more energy as you go about your day. Exercise performs the same functions as medicine, for your body. But how do you exercise without risking injury? Proper program prescription is fundamental!

Here at Pongo Power we emphasize education and attention to detail. We will help you to utilize the principals of exercise science, so that you overcome the weak links in your routine, and move forward.

Weight Lifting & Resistance

Dumbbells and barbells are also called “Free Weights.”  Pongo Power members also use resistance bands and tubing, medicine balls, and cable machines. Using various forms of free weights during resistance training offers the opportunity to learn about how your body moves and what patterns your body exhibits. These patterns are known as kinetic chain patterns and are often masked by equipment that you sit on in gyms.

You have a choice of weight-bearing or non-weight-bearing resistance training exercise. Both of these choices are non-impact modalities; therefore, your joints are protected from unnecessary overuse that can lead to repetitive stress injuries.

Through training that uses free weights, you will learn how to activate your core, and stabilize your spine.

Cardiovascular Training

Cardiorespiratory training is crucial due to the importance of strengthening the heart muscle fiber, and improving blood circulation throughout the entire body. The cardiac tissue is responsible for providing every cell in the body with the oxygen needed to function effectively. Without oxygen, microscopic cells and tissues break down. These cells compose every aspect of the body – the brain, the muscles, the organs, the joints, the connective fibers in the body, the skeleton and the nervous system. Cardiovascular training increasing longevity and improves our quality of life.

Cardiorespiratory exercise must be specific to each individual’s needs and goals. (If a person is taking beta-blockers or any medication that affects the heart rate, this must be taken into account. Do not engage in a cardiac training program without a medical recommendation from your doctor if you have had a history of heart disease.)

At Pongo Power we teach out clients how to train the cardiovascular system properly and safely, according to the principals of Stage Training. Stage Training creates a balanced cardiovascular program which fits your own health history, needs, and goals. It is a systematic progression which is safe and effective. Stage Training is a solid basis to build a cardiovascular program upon.
