Fit•ness /ˈfitnəs/: The quality of being suitable to perform a particular physical role or task, regardless of the level of intensity required for that role or task.
In other words, a human being should be able to control his or her body, not vice versa. And that is what you will receive by training with IMS. When you train with IMS, you will be able to perform all the required exercises without physical injury and thereby build confidence and the desire to achieve more!
Personal Training: relationship between two individuals, one who seeks help to improve its physical status quo, and to achieve personal goals. The other who has the knowledge and most importantly, the experience, to provide the guidance for the journey and ultimately to attain its destination.
At IMS fitness, the individual who seeks help will find it.
“Maintaining order rather than correcting disorder is the ultimate principle of wisdom. To cure disease after it has appeared is like digging a well when one feels thirsty or forging weapons after a war has already begun”
-Huangdi Neijing – 2nd Century BCE
At IMS, you will be taught not to live to eat, but to eat to live. And this is what we as humans have misconstrued.
“Research your own experiences for the Truth. Absorb what is useful. Reject what is useless. Add specifically what is yours.”
At most commercial gyms you are are encouraged to fit into a specific ideal of what fitness means to that trainer, in that environment. Whether it’s muscle heads, cardio bunnies, or crossfit crazies, they all want you to fit into their idea of what it is to be fit and healthy. They have the mentality that they must break you down first before they can build you up. You are not looked after as a whole human being; you are seen as a number. As long as they get your monthly membership fees, their job is done.
At IMS there are no cookie-cutter workouts or diet plans. Every training program, every workout, will be specifically tailored to your goals and needs. We put a large emphasis in doing what comes naturally to your body, and in moving and training in such a way that you and your own unique lifestyle, are left enhanced.
Our philosophy is that our job doesn’t end when you walk out the door. At IMS, your workout is only the beginning. We aren’t only here to support you in achieving your diet and fitness goals, but also in living a more full and powerful life.
At IMS we take what you already have, and build you up from there, so that you ultimately become a fuller expression of who you really are.
“All athletes experience victory and defeat. To deal with victory is an easy thing. How one deals with defeat is what makes an athlete, “Undefeatable.”
There is a trend in the fitness industry today to say that everyone is an athlete; that if you have a body, you’re an athlete.
At IMS, we know that athletes require a completely different approach to training than the average gym goer. We are committed that you will reach a whole new level of performance and confidence while training with us.
We strive to go beyond basic sport specific training, to do whatever it takes in helping you develop the level of strength and conditioning necessary to be the best in your arena.
