The MyoFitness instructors work hard to knock down the barriers that prevent people from getting fit. Rather than summoning clients to gyms, they come to homes and offices for private personal-training and private yoga sessions, sparing clients the hassle of driving home sweaty or finding a babysitter for their needy, needy house plant. Unlike following along to yoga and fitness videos, this brand of one-on-one attention helps ensure proper form and reduce the chance of injury. And to assist with ongoing progress, the instructors also dole out nutrition advice and counseling tailored to suit the needs of each client.
Though programs vary based on each individual, trainers typically begin programs with a focus on core strength and balance skills, and then move on to secondary muscle movements—a progression designed to reduce the risk of injury. In addition to participating in on-location sessions, clients can opt to meet trainers at the gym or join group fitness classes and rigorous boot-camp workouts.
After moving to South Carolina to attend Sherman College of Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Katie Supik Resick returned to her native northern Pittsburgh and opened Optimal Health & Wellness Chiropractic Center.
