PMX® LiveSmart Fitness Training
Don’t let pain slow you down, get in the best shape of your life and exercise with confidence while you rehabilitate your body. We partner with your physical therapist to provide you with a fitness plan based on your medical findings, that allows you to train your body hard, pain-free. Whether you are new to exercise or a trained athlete, our LiveSmart Trainers show you the best strength training, conditioning, and corrective exercises, how to do them so you won’t get hurt and guide you all the way through your journey.
It all begins with a proper three-step assessment with your LiveSmart Trainer.
We test to see what parts of your body are strong, weak, tight or unstable. This will give us an idea of your idiosyncrasies and movement dysfunctions* that need to be corrected in order for you to make progress without further injury. Any movements that cause pain will be noted and rated on a scale from 1-10.
We walk you through a series of exercises to find out which exercises are best for your body, correct movement dysfunction, improve posture and make you feel good. Depending on where you are in your rehab process these exercises could be planks, squats, upper-body presses, lunges, plyometrics, etc.
We reassess to see if the exercises we chose made a difference in the way your body moves, feels and looks. The key is finding the exercises that your body responds to the best as determined by the reassessment and plugging them into a program that can be performed with our trainers for long term progress. Movements that cause pain will also be reassessed and rated once again on a scale from 1-10.
