SPORTS PERFORMANCE

  • 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.

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

SPORTS REHABILITATION

  • 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 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 the muscles (and tendons, ligaments) associated with that tightness and typically it needs to strengthen the muscles that oppose those tight muscles (such as gluteals - the tush) and hamstrings. Tightness and weakness are the cycle of injury. Learn what your body needs to be healthy with personal training.

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.

WHAT IS HOLISTIC NUTRITION?

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. Call for a free 10 min consultation today 510-817-4954
