Exercise Training is the Closest Thing we Currently Have to the Fountain of Youth…if you know the right dosage.

Our Training Philosophy is Simple: We match the right tools in the optimal dosage with an individual’s goals in consideration of limitations and current ability.

The majority of our clients seek our help because we specialize in working with limitations like a bad rotator cuff, arthritis, specific or non-specific back pain, knee injury, recovery or preparation for orthopedic surgery, etc. Our clients regularly overcome and/or learn to manage such limitations in order to continue doing the activities they enjoy.

All new Customized Training Clients begin their journey with an assessment and health screening. During your initial appointment, you and your fitness coach will review your health history, goals and your past and current exercise experiences.

Your coach will perform a range-of-motion and posture analysis, and a movement screen, which assesses your baseline ability in basic movements like squatting and touching your toes.

The purpose of the assessment is to help our Program Design Department understand your current strengths and areas in need of improvement. They will then cusomize an exercise-training program for you based on your goals, needs, and schedule.

We meet you where you’re at and work from there.

Strength & Core Training

Exercises are prioritized in the resistance portion of your program based on your specific goals, and injury considerations gathered from your baseline assessment.   The structure and organization of your resistance training program will depend on your goals and experience.  Each workout you can expect to perform a variety of drills designed to build and/or tone your muscles, increase athleticism and prepare you for life’s adventures.

 

Metabolic Training

We integrate a combination of HIIT (high-intensity interval training), Threshold and Recovery Conditioning into every workout to better facilitate the endorphin boost, burn extra calories, and to improve both stamina and your ability to recuperate from your workouts better.

 

Efficient & Effective Workouts

We understand that our clients lead busy lives and that it becomes difficult to fit in anything extra.  That’s why we recommend three 45-minute workouts per week to accomplish most goals.  There’s no need to spend hours in the gym.

There are a lot of tools designed to improve fitness.  You’ll learn to use most of them at Marinos; from barbells and dumbells, to ropes, sandbags, kettlebells and more.

Our Program Design Department incorporates a Daily Undulating Periodization (DUP) model to assure progressive improvement, and optimize your recovery.   We review and update your chart following each workout so that we can provide the appropriate challenge in each successive training session.

REAL WORLD NUTRITION

DITCH THE DIETS

Whole 30.  Paleo.  South Beach.  Atkins.  Weight Watchers.  Mediterranean.  Jenny Craig.  Isagenix.  Cabbage Soup.  Bone Broth.  Clean Eating.  Did I get them all?  Do you know what they all have in common?  They are ALL diets that you start and eventually stop.  They all cause weight loss and eventually weight gain when you stop following the diet rules.  They are “quick fixes” but they don’t  teach you about food!

Our registered dietitian has been in practice for over 16 years.  She has coached body builders, bikini competitors, bariatric surgery clients, and the average gym goer.  Over the years, she has developed a nutrition system that teaches you about food, the science behind food and strategies to deal with food.

 

COMPLIANCE + CONSISTENCY = FAT LOSS

The diet industry thrives on people’s insecurities and desperations to achieve perfection.  They tell you to eat this and not that.  Drink this tea and you’ll lose 10 pounds in 10 days.  Only eat meat like our ancestors and you’ll get ripped.  Our system is different in that we tell you the truth about fat loss:  It’s REALLY hard work!  Really hard.

There are a few keys to success:

  1. Being honest with yourself about what you’re eating and drinking and identifying the reasons WHY you’re eating.
  2. Learning about food and how it affects your body
  3. Creating a plan that is realistic for YOUR life and YOUR preferences
  4. Identifying realistic goals and putting steps in place to get you there
  5. Having a plan of attack once you’re at goal

Nothing will replace compliance and consistency.  Sometimes you must get creative with your strategies, but that’s when we step in to help.  Our methods are based on the most current nutritional science.  No magic potions or pills.  Just hard work, dedication and finding the right plan for you.

 

ONE PLAN DOES NOT FIT ALL

Your initial 45-minute consultation with the dietitian will include:

  1. An initial InBody scan: body fat assessment
  2. Review of 3-day food journal
  3. Customized calorie plan including your macronutrient breakdown
  4. Strategies to building your meals based on your goals

Each month you will receive an Inbody scan and a 30-minute follow-up appointment to fine tune your plan.

All clients will receive the Marino’s Fitness Official Nutrition Manual and access to Marino’s Closed Group Facebook page for community support, recipe ideas and much more.
