In order to get ‘FIT’ you need to find the right FIT

 

110% FIT is definitely HOT!!  The workouts are intense, monitored and allow the client to work at his/her own pace.  Libby Westphal, Owner and Personal Trainer, definitely knows how to push you to the next level of fitness.  Well…why wouldn’t she know how to motivate??  She practices exactly what she preaches.

We participated in their Scorched 60 and 75 MAX bootcamp classes. The Scorched 60 class is designed to burn 600-1,000 in a bootcamp-style class that incorporates drills designed to enhance agility, speed, power, strength, and quickness.  The 75 MAX bootcamp class is an intense station workout done in intervals which includes spin bikes, rowing machines, boxing techniques, TRX, rope, box jumps, etc…

The culture motivated you to do more.  The clients were familiar with each other and had no problem shouting verbal cues to get their workout partners to the next level.  This workout environment is great for persons who prefer a structured program and a group environment geared to help you burn those extra calories and build firm muscles.

110% FIT pushes you to areas of fitness you could not imagine.  With that said,  emphasis is placed on technique and client safety.  Every exercise was focused on specific muscle groups and was free of unwanted back soreness that is often present with bad technique/ faulty instructor cues.

So what type of personality would 100% FIT??

  1. Anyone who wants guided exercise instruction

  2. Anyone who enjoys group classes with great energy, laughter and camaraderie

  3. Anyone who needs motivation.  Motivation to reach physical peaks unimaginable

  4. Anyone who is at the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels of fitness

  5. Anyone who wants to avoid yearly contracts

  6. Anyone who needs monitored exercise

  7. Anyone looking to achieve GREATNESS

In an effort to enhance their knowledge on movement, 110% FIT and Missing Link Physical Therapy will be collaborating to introduce a class for persons who are interested on learning the ‘Basic Movements Required for Exercise’.

Overcoming the Challenge of Today’s Healthcare System

As a young Physical Therapist growing in experience and knowledge I question our effectiveness in the healthcare setting. I don’t mean to generalize everyone, but I think we have lost the love for people. We have lost the sympathy and empathy on which healthcare was built on. Because of financial restraints we have cut the time spent with patients. Along with the time lost we have lost the ability to perform personalized care. I am not an exception and have been guilty of this; and with the loss of personalized treatment I believe that outcomes are not optimized. Being a healthcare professional does not only mean giving the right drug or correct treatment. By building an intimate relationship with your patient, a relationship of trust can actually enhance the affect of the drug or treatment provided. Yes, there is no research to show this, but through my clinical experience I have seen first hand that a combination of the right treatment and good relationship have positive outcomes. Conversely, the right treatment with flawed patient interaction showed poor clinical outcomes.

I don’t believe that we are going to heal everyone, but I do believe that we can optimize the quality of life and function of individuals with more TIME. I believe that with more individual time we can change peoples lives and we can ‘LOVE’ them more. We can be better at achieving the functional goals of the patient instead of priortitizing our own clinical goals with the time we have. I believe that with more time there will be less money spent overall and better utilization of our patients’ healthcare dollars.

In my young Physical Therapy practice there is a common trend of people coming to therapy only once a week. This is because with a one hour treatment focused on individualized care we are able to achieve the goals of the patient in a timely manner. People are, over time, paying less and also spending less time away from their overall ‘dysfuntion’. Individuals are optimizing their function and becoming an active part of society.

Our chronic population needs more individualized time as we are not only dealing with the physical affects of pain, but also the psychosocial aspects. We need to continue to challenge insurance companies on reimbursement for our respective skill sets. We are worth more!! We need to get back to patient centered healthcare where outcomes, quality of life and function are our primary goal. This is my utopia because I see it is possible with what I do on a daily basis. Patients and clients will testify to my ‘crazy talk!!’ The missing link to healthcare is not necessarily the next super drug, surgical technique or diet but rather the intangibles that cost us nothing. It is the eye contact, smile, attention, hug, holding of a hand… the list goes on! I challenge all those who are in healthcare to try this and see what your outcomes are. See the reaction that is driven from it.

Let’s love each other and the healing will follow.
