Learning the Importance of Corrective Exercise

You may know that Quest Fitness staff have a wide range of certifications and experience in different training specialties. One of the most important methods of training that staff provide is Corrective Exercise training.

Corrective Exercises

What is Corrective Exercise, though? Corrective Exercise responds to the fitness problems of a modern society. Modern society provides a wide array of technology that makes life easier, but also creates a sedentary lifestyle. Contemporary jobs require people to sit in a car for a long period when traveling, then sit at desk jobs for numerous hours staring at a computer, then sit for a long time while commuting home. Afterward, people tend to relax on the couch while watching television or using our smartphones. In our society children spend hours sitting during the school day, and they enjoy less-and-less physical activities as after school activities are eliminated.

Knee Injury

All of these sedentary hours lead to severe muscle imbalances throughout the human body. This lack of muscle development leads people to be prone to injuries as well as being unhealthy. Research shows that musculoskeletal pain is more common now that it was 40 years ago. This research supports the idea that the decrease in physical activity could lead to muscular dysfunction as well as injury. The most common injuries that occur because of these muscular dysfunctions are foot and ankle injuries, low back pain, knee injuries, and shoulder injuries. 

Trainer and Owner Ray Shonk

At Quest Fitness our trainers assess potential problems through our complementary fitness assessment. Our staff can identify these overactive and underactive muscles to develop an intermediate program to correct the issues before proceeding to more intense exercises. What this means for you is a reduced risk of injury during exercise, as well as reducing your chances of injury in everyday activities. Quest trainers develop the proper prescription of exercise to strengthen the underactive muscles, as well as offering appropriate stretching and massage therapy for the overactive muscles.

Come in for a complementary fitness assessment, and see what Quest Fitness can do for you!

Vinyasa Yoga

Dani Banks

The Vinyasa style is one style of yoga that uses breath in sync with movement, creating a FLOW. It’s another way to deepen your practice and nourish your whole self.

Mind, body, and spirit connected, what does that really mean anyway? When you inhale deeply, you not only inhale oxygen which heals and nourishes you physically from within, you calm your heart rate, which begins to regulate hormone function, effecting mood. You inhale peace. Mind, body, and spirit are working in sync. When you exhale slowly, you not only rid yourself from carbon dioxide and other toxins, but you are releasing tension and stress, and calming down. As you continue to focus on your breath, and it’s rhythm in sync with your movement, that mindfulness gives your mind a chance to focus on this basic healing function, and a chance to rest. It is a break from the 1 million thoughts that go through your head in a day and can sometimes wear you down, especially those inner critic thoughts that tell you what you should be, and what you should be doing, instead of being present and appreciating what and where you are at that moment. Yes, you are on your mat to take care of your physical body, but you are more than just your body. Yoga nourishes all of you. You deserve that moment to appreciate your breath, your body, your strength, and your soul.

Quest Fitness Anniversary Celebration

In September of 2017, Quest Fitness underwent a huge change. We moved from a small garage to a big new 1600 square foot location. This was a big leap, but very worth it! In the last year, we have continued to grow, first by adding a new Yoga class with Dani, then bringing in our own massage therapist, Meg, and finally bringing in 3 great trainers, Erica, Kenny, and Tani.

Quest has also managed to put on some amazing events, as well! My favorites so far have been World Tai Chi Day and the seminar led by celebrity trainer Danny Kavadlo. But now it is time for the next big event: the anniversary of the opening of Quest Fitness! To say thank to everyone out there, we are opening our doors not just to our many loyal clients, but also to the entire public. Stop in and meet the entire Quest Crew, meet with a trainer for free, try out a class at no charge and even get a massage from Meg! The event will be September 15th starting at 8am until 6pm. No appointments are necessary, just swing in and see us. Snacks and beverages will be provided and we will be holding a raffle for more great prizes! I look forward to seeing you there!
