When you make the commitment to improving your health and lifestyle, you need a coach and trainer who will we be equally committed to helping you achieve your goals. You are an individual, which means your tolerances to exercise vary from the next person. We understand force and its application to the muscular skeletal system. As a result we are meticulous with our execution and focus on micro-progression. We believe in providing you with a personal training experience unlike any other.
Fitness is a Process not a Program.
When it comes to strength training, not every exercise is created equally. We utilize our knowledge in force application to determine appropriate exercises for you during the time of your personal training session. The common goal is to continue to progress to maintain optimal strength and stability resulting in increased performance in many factors of life. Our personal training sessions are conducted at the Sportsbarn, one of Chattanooga’s best health and fitness clubs.
Muscle Activation Techniques ® is a bio-mechanical evaluation that identifies limited range of motion and muscular inhibition which is followed by a treatment process to “jumpstart” the muscle to function with maximum efficiency. MAT is a revolutionary approach to treating imbalances and has been successful in restoring motion and control around joints. MAT identifies dysfunction at its source, reducing compensations and improving functional strength capabilities.

Reviews & Endorsements
“Adam and Bethany have kept me going since 2014. When I’m not working 40+ hours / 5+ days a week, I’m usually climbing or training. In the limited time I have, I can’t afford to climb or train with muscular imbalances. But don’t take my word for it- Ask anyone else who’s done MAT with Adam or Bethany. Do yourself a favor and get an MAT assessment.”

It is common knowledge that preventative measures are important in life. We wear seat belts, we pay car insurance, and we visit the doctor for regular checkups. Even exercise is a preventative measure, known to lower the risk of heart disease, prevent injury, and keep us feeling fit and strong as we age. As we exercise it is important to periodically assess our neuromuscular system.
The concept of stretching is important for almost everyone in the health and fitness industry. Stretching tends to be prescribed for anyone regardless of goals or proper assessments. What is interesting is that there are many individuals who do constantly stretch but never seem to make any improvements in their flexibility or continue to feel muscle or joint tightness. Perhaps it could be the type of stretching that is being practiced? Perhaps there is one change to the style of stretching that could improve flexibility and also be safe at the same time.
We always here that climbers should train fingers, upper body and core. The lower body tends to be neglected. Is it for fear of adding too much muscle mass? Maybe it’s because the typical climbing gym doesn’t have much equipment available for training the lower body? More likely it’s because strength training for climbing is relatively new and various aspects of training have not received much focus. If you are not already training lower body, here are 3 reasons you should start.
