Building the Person Inside
Fitness isn’t a way of life. It is the way you stay alive.
Fitness is also about far more than just how much you can lift or how far you can run. No matter your age, profession or hobbies, the goal is the same: maintain strength and flexibility, reduce stress and stay healthy. A true fitness program is one that takes each person’s unique physiology, diet, lifestyle, needs and goals into account holistically to guide them toward their maximum potential.
Whether you are brand new to fitness, a seasoned athlete looking to enhance your performance, or looking for help to shed a few pounds, our commitment is to make all of our fitness programs address your unique needs. Many trainers and dietitians become pleased with their “method,” and focus on having their clients work the method, rather than the method work for the clients. At Forteza we work with you to design a personalized, holistic program that will ensure great success for you. We only succeed if you succeed!
Physical Culture: The Forteza Advantage
Every gym and fitness studio in the western world owes its origins to the physical culture movement of the 19th century, which placed an emphasis on coordinated training in functional strength, agility and endurance, using Indian clubs, gymnastics rings, medicine balls, ropes and rowing machines to focus on natural movement and performance in athletics. At Forteza we take this concept of physical culture literally. You won’t simply come in and swing a kettle bell for 30 minutes or do a little cardio. No fad diets, no bizarre workout regiments. Instead, through a combination of old school calisthenics, modern personal training methods, nutritional counseling and fitness education we provide you with the tools to live a natural, healthy life.
Working one-on-one with one of our expert Personal Trainers, you will learn real functional strength training using classical calisthenics and equipment – kettle bells, body weight exercises, medicine balls, rope climbing, Indian Clubs, etc – with modern understanding of circuit training, peak performance, bio-rhythms and muscular recovery. Beginning with an initial fitness assessment, we will provide you with a personalized fitness prescription plan that is tailored to fit you and your goals, no matter what your current fitness level may be.
