The Science Behind Fitness


AWC’s certified fitness trainers are here to help you reach your fitness goals.”

As fitness professionals, our trainers focus on more than just encouraging physical activity. We have a responsibility to help guide and motivate you to improve your health and wellness by promoting a holistic approach to health encompassing the mind, body, and spirit.

Your fitness training program starts with a functional movement screening so that your fitness trainer can identify your individual fitness level and determine the starting point that will maximize your benefits while protecting your body from injury.

Once your fitness level is determined, your fitness trainer will create your personalized fitness program utilizing the five components of physical fitness:

Cardiovascular Endurance: the efficiency with which the body delivers oxygen and nutrients needed for muscular activity and transports waste products from the cells.

Muscular Strength: a type of resistance training designed to increase the greatest amount of force a muscle or muscles can exert in a single effort.

Muscular Endurance: a type of resistance training used to increase the ability of the muscles to perform repeated movements of extended periods of time.

Flexibility: the ability to move the body through an entire range of motion without restrictions.

Body Composition: the percentage of body fat a person has in comparison to their total body mass.

By combining cardiovascular endurance training coupled with resistance training, your outcome will be maximized, resulting in greater effects on improving your body’s overall composition.
