SLINKFIT Philosophy

Long-term fitness results start from within. The muscles you can’t see are often the ones that perform the most important functions. Whether it’s the smooth stride of a high-performance runner or the unconscious grace of a toddler, how we move is proof of how our muscles, joints, ligaments and bones work together. The SLINKFIT system explores this connection, developing your body’s core structure inside for a stronger outside.

Not a fad, not a marketing gimmick, not a one-size-fits-all program, SLINKFIT looks beneath the surface of each individual to identify mechanical inefficiencies. A body that is out of sync on the inside, stumbles on the outside, whether it’s a twinge when lifting groceries, ongoing recovery from a persistent sports injury, or just the feeling that the spare tire around your waist will never go away.

More Than A Workout – Fitness For Life

SLINKFIT starts with unique fundamental movements and progresses to more complex, complete workouts as your core strengthens and your stamina increases. You’ll be introduced to a variety of Training Methods using a combination of gym equipment, new skills, and cardio techniques. A stable core—your body’s foundation—enables you to perform each movement of your workout, and your daily life, with optimum efficiency. You’ll burn more calories throughout your entire day, not just during your training session. You’ll feel better inside and look better outside.

Each SLINKFIT program is developed on sound principals that are appropriate for everyone, but applied through a system created just for you. Working closely with your trainer to evaluate your physical needs and goals, you can attain a healthy, toned, and resilient body, not just for a moment, but for a lifetime.

“Anyone can claim to be a personal trainer, but it takes real experience and knowledge to produce and sustain results.”
