At Pongo Power, all of our core principles regarding exercise and nutrition are rooted in science.
Our personal trainers are qualified and accredited movement specialists. And our private studio is equipped with medical-grade, FDA approved equipment, that is utilized in the medical field. This is so that you can get the most accurate information and data about your physical conditioning; and so that we can provide you with superb program design.
All Pongo Power Personal Trainers are certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine, considered to be the gold standard of fitness certifications. Our team of trainers are required to pursue continuing education in the field as it relates to their specializations, which range from Medical Exercise; Strength and Conditioning; Clubbell Training; Nutritional Learning, and more. It is with this breadth of knowledge that we are able to create effective and safe personal training protocols, for each unique client who walks through our door.
Pongo Power is home to ViPerform™ technology, which accurately assesses high-risk movements with measurable data. This enhances our personal trainers’ ability to evaluate, screen, and assess clients.
ViPerform™ is a wireless sensor technology that tracks and measures how clients move in real time. The ViPerform™ system consists of wearable-motion and muscle-activity sensors that record data, at 200 frames per second; as well as intuitive software, with sophisticated algorithms, that turn robust data into easy-to-read and meaningful results.
Pongo Power personal trainers use ViPerform™ to monitor runners’ gaits, perform knee health tests, and assess the possible causes of lower back pain.
This is the same technology utilized by Olympic athletes, and it’s here at Pongo Power to help you get the most out of your training.
Accurate Metabolism Tests
If you’re trying to lose weight, you know how difficult it can be; especially without the knowledge needed to make weight maintenance healthy, achievable, and sustainable. At Pongo Power, our personal trainers use a KORR Metabolic Analyzer to measure how many calories you burn per day, so that you know exactly how much to eat, while still losing weight.
Healthy weight loss happens when your body is at an energy deficit. This means you’re burning more calories than you are consuming, in a consistent fashion.
By testing your unique metabolic rate, we can determine your target calorie zones. This will ensure you’re maintaining enough of an energy deficit to lose weight, without undereating.
Sustainable weight loss is never achieved through starvation diets. Even if you’ve had trouble dieting before, knowing your target calorie zone will help you eat a satisfying amount of food while losing fat in a healthy way.
Pongo Power invests in continuing education for our team. Our personal trainers devour information on the internet; search for the evidence-based research on fitness and nutrition; and share that knowledge with you: our clients and readers, every week. We want to vividly share with everyone, that fitness and nutrition aren’t just about looking good. Fitness and food, are the key to longevity, and living your best life.
We utilize everything we’ve learned, and all the tools at our disposal, to get you results; results that are attained safely and effectively. Come in for a free fitness assessment today, and learn more about all we have to offer.
