In addition to warm-up procedures, corrective exercises, stretching and interval surges, Mike introduced me to several methods of resistance training, which he designed while always being cognizant of injury prevention. Mike would make sure he was totally informed as to any medical conditions, which might be negatively affected by any of the procedures. In addition, the Spectrum trainer and nutritionist, Michelle, would constructively critique my nutritional history in order to set me on the path to more beneficial eating habits.
I think overall, what I have learned is that engaging in aerobic exercise is only one part of achieving fitness, and during my sessions with Mike, I found that I was using muscles long passive over the years; those muscles seem to respond to the exercises and contribute to achieving some improvement to fitness. Spectrum also emphasized balance exercises to maintain stability. “During my last few sessions, Mike emphasized methods of working at home and substituting home devices for some of the machinery at the Spectrum gym, I was highly pleased with my sessions with Spectrum.”
