Can you recall the time that you were in the best shape of your life? Have you ever been in the best shape of your life? Regardless of where you’re at in this moment with your fitness level - the single most important thing for you to do RIGHT NOW is to GET STARTED. Getting started back on that road to feeling strong mentally and physically is perhaps THE most important reason why we are personal trainers (and opened a studio 7 years ago). The fact that we can go from pain to healing to optimal performance through hard work and physical movement is what makes us love what we do every single day. Transform yourself. Transform your life. Feel good. That is what life is all about. We want to help you get there because if you could do it alone, you would have done it already.

we want you to know why you’re doing the exercises that you’re doing and where you should be feeling them

Sports Performance Training takes you to the next level with your climbing, biking, running or athletic pursuits. Personal Training at BK ROOTS is based on ensuring that your body is moving in optimal movement patterns by correcting imbalances and restoring alignment.

Isolated movements are targeted to engage weaker muscles. Those weaker muscles are then combined with dynamic and functional movements so that all muscles are being utilized synergistically and efficiently - making you a stronger you. Just 1-2 intense training sessions per week will improve your athleticism and performance in the activit(y)ies that you love.

Stabilization, strength, balance, power, plyometrics, core work and isolated movements are used to improve your body’s performance @ BK ROOTS.

Sports Rehab programming identifies your body’s imbalances of tight and weak muscles that are inhibiting you from proper alignment and movement patterns.

Specializing in knee, lower back and shoulder injuries to rehabilitate the surrounding muscles of the injured joints along with synergistically improving functional full body movement patterns. Become pain free forever. This is not a quick fix, but a lifelong journey of mind and body. You will learn what you need to do for your body to keep it pain-free. Pilates, weights and any other modality in the studio are utilized to get your body to its best.

The cycle of injury and faulty movement patterns are what cause pain. Repetitive movements such as running or sitting all day can create tightness in the hip flexors, chest and knees. To combat this repetition, the body needs to release muscles (and tendons, ligaments) associated with that tightness and simultaneously strengthen the muscles that oppose those tight muscles (often glutes and hamstrings). Tightness and weakness are the cycle of injury. BK ROOTS trainers will help you figure out the root causes of your pain so that you can live a life of calm and strength. Get the support you need to be the strongest version of yourself.

“My lower back has been messed up for the past few years. Really messed up. There were days where it started spasming for no reason, it hurt to walk up a small hill, to sit, to stand, to swim for more than a couple seconds, to lie in bed, or do pretty much anything beyond walking on a fairly flat surface. It’s been about 5 weeks since I started going and I’m already feeling a lot better - the best my back has felt for a long time…Mindy does a good a job of not only figuring out what the problem is, but also of figuring out how to explain it in a way that makes sense.”

This is a friendly and welcoming fitness studio-whatever your starting level of fitness is, Mindy and Ash are warm and encouraging, and will also push you to meet your goals. Mindy’s sports rehab personal training is outstanding (helping me train injury-free for several metric century bike rides this year and upcoming 1/2 marathon), and I’ve enjoyed yoga and springboard classes.

Holistic nutrition @ BK ROOTS takes the whole body and mind into consideration when approaching the concept of weight loss. If you’ve tried to lose weight before and weren’t able to keep it off, why is that? We give you the tools you need so that you understand why you put on weight and how to lose it. We incorporate technology (fitbit or iwatch) to help you understand calories out and myfitnesspal (to log and track calorie consumption) to understand calories in.

Because food can have emotional attachments, a compassionate approach is taken toward your weight loss goals. Coaching and support are often a necessary element to creating lasting change.

NUTRITIONAL WEIGHT LOSS COACHING comes with Personal Training when you train with Mindy.
