Our wonderful bodies are uniquely and beautifully made. And they are designed to move. Life improves when we participate in physical activities we enjoy. Fitness & personal training can serve many purposes for us, from improving athletic or job performance, reducing stress or body aches, keeping up with our children, controlling our weight and other health measurements, using our body as a means of transportation, or expressing ourselves artistically through types of dance. Whatever the specific purpose, it is clear that physical fitness improves our quality of life. The body is connected to the mind and spirit and one influences the other. You simply cannot train one without influencing the other. For example, when we see and feel our bodies perform more gracefully, we gain confidence. When we learn more about the mechanisms of how our bodies move or “function”, we feel more in control of them. This sense of control often translates to a feeling of empowerment in other areas of our lives. It's this idea that has prompted so many to seek out personal training at 3D Fitness in Houston, TX.
Discover Purposeful Training
Why call the studio “3D Fitness”? No, no special glasses are required to see us…
We train the body to be functional in 3 planes of motion, i.e. sagittal, frontal, transverse, & all combinations of the 3, because that’s the world we live in! Understanding fitness requires an understanding of “AFS” or Applied Functional Science. This includes not only extensive knowledge of human anatomy and physiology, but also how the body in motion relates to the laws of physics and all of the forces it encounters during daily activity.
Often times we'll encourage the body by using a manual technique called FMR, or Functional Manual Reaction. "Functional Manual Reaction is the name that the Gray Institute uses to describe the application of hands to bone segments in order to facilitate an optimal sequence of motion during a functional movement. FMR is used during the clinical tasks of movement assessment, functional training, and rehabilitation." www.GrayInstitute.com
Benefits of Personal Training:
Personalized Routines – Your personal trainer will get to know you. There are people of all shapes and sizes that walk through the doors of 3D Fitness for personal training and every one of them has a personalized routine created for them. Your personal trainer will know your strengths, your weaknesses, what will benefit you the most and most importantly, what you enjoy doing.
Accountability & Motivation – Having a scheduled meeting with a personal trainer will make it easier to get yourself to the gym on time and ready to work out. Having someone dedicated to your success who is there to cheer you on will help boost not only your motivation, but your self-esteem as well.
Efficient Workouts – There are different approaches to creating a workout but a personal trainer will help make sure that you are spending the proper amount of time on certain exercises. It is not necessary to spend hours in the gym every day but rather spend the time doing the proper exercises.
Proper Form – The most important thing about having a personal trainer for your workouts is learning proper form. Having proper form ensures not only that you receive the full benefits from the motion but also and most importantly, that you so not injure yourself. Exercise-related injuries can affect not only the time it takes you to achieve your fitness goals, but it can lead to permanent damage to the body. Your personal trainer will know what types of exercises are right for you.

What is your favorite sport or physical activity? Perhaps golf? Dancing? Walking Lassie? In your opinion, could it be performed better? Would doing so lead to other benefits you desire such as increased energy, improved self image, or less time suffering from some illnesses or pain? I believe this is possible. Teaching and improving movement patterns with our functional training can lead you to the many more positives in your life that you desire.
