Strength Training Q & A

What is strength training?

Strength training is the coaching and activities in which you engage to become stronger over time. More strength is just one facet of improving your athletic performance, but engaging in these practices has long-term benefits for your health. Additionally, getting stronger is a common and achievable goal among individuals of all age groups and all levels of athleticism.

The Rehab Docs invite you for an initial consultation where they discuss your current abilities and goals. You should tell them what you’d like to get out of strength training and if any health conditions may have an impact on your abilities. 

You receive a tailored plan for strength training and direct guidance and support. The Rehab Docs also track your progress over time and make sure you’re getting stronger at a sustainable rate. They also teach you practices that you can use while training on your own time.

Who should consider strength training?

Strength training can benefit anyone looking to improve their strength or overall athleticism. You might also be interested if you simply want to extend your lifespan or improve your quality of life.  It’s especially beneficial for competitive athletes who play sports or engage in other competitive physical activities.
