Building muscle strength to live a more functional life is a befitting New Year's resolution -- one that's achievable with a little help from a local group of personal training specialists. Using science-based Exerbotics technology to deliver individual workouts optimized for maximum results in a minimum amount of time is the goal of Clayton-based fitness professionals at The Exercise Coach.
"We're not your typical gym, and we're 100% data driven," promises Jessica Phillips, who owns the Clayton-located Exercise Coach studio, along with one in Webster Groves and Town & Country.
"Smart and successful personal strength training is the key to fitness. Our clients get personalized attention. We take your metabolic assessment and develop a program around what you can do today, rather than guessing at what you might be able to do next week. Then we track and discuss your progress each session," she adds. "We love getting to hear, 'The Exercise Coach is the first workout I have ever been able to stick with!'"
The team's assistance starts with enhancing each client's strength, typically through twice weekly sessions that last 20 minutes each. Planned intervals give muscles the essential recovery time they need to adapt, strengthen and build vigor. "We’re here to help you get stronger, feel better, and choose the way you age," says Jessica.
Depending on clients' overall goals, Jessica says they can help equally the go-getters with no physical limitations who don't have much time for exercise, as well as those who are easing into more rigorous activities after knee or hip replacements, for example.
Jessica says they've been told they are the No. 1 desirable place to work out at during the COVID-19 pandemic, because they deliberately operate in a small, controlled and safe space.
"Since we opened -- which was before the pandemic -- we've been following the same cleaning protocols as what's now recommended for coronavirus concerns. We were already taking thorough public safety and cleaning precautions, and that's very appealing to people," she says.
Jessica assures anyone interested in exploring their Exercise Coach approach and technology can receive two complimentary sessions. "New clients can jumpstart their New Year in our safe setting by receiving $100 off their studio plan assessments. We can help with those critical good intentions during January," she says.
They've recently launched a small group training option, which is limited to three people at a time, while still providing customized individual instructions and opportunities to draw motivation from others or exercise together as household units.
"We're about improving quality of life day to day through better body functionality without pain," she adds.
