Muscle Activation Technique (MAT)
MAT bridges the gap between fitness and rehabilitation. Muscle tightness is a form of protection in the body. Weak or inhibited muscles can create the need for other muscles to tighten up in order to help stabilize the joints. MAT gets to the root of pain or injury by addressing muscle weakness rather than muscle tightness, helping to restore normal body alignment, thereby, decreasing pain and reducing the risk of injury.
With MAT, athletes of all ages will perform at a higher level without injury, allowing them to “stay in the game.” MAT allows you to return to the golf course, tennis court, ski slopes or athletic field with renewed strength and without pain.
Functional training is training for life – your life. Functional training workouts are designed to enhance your skill on the golf course, ski-slopes, tennis court, or everyday life. The Functional Training approach mimics movements involved in sports or day-to-day activities.
More than cosmetic fitness, Functional Training makes you strong and durable for whatever life throws your way. Increase your muscular balance, joint stability and decrease risk of injury. These benefits may arise from the use of functional training which emphasizes the body’s natural, anatomical tri-planar motion.
