Most people work out harder than needed to get results
London, Ontario, June 18, 2018 – An exercise physiologist with experience developing programs for Canada’s Olympic athletes and professional sports teams believes most people who go to the gym are training much harder than needed to get results.
Pierre Gaudet, B.Sc., M.Sc., is one of the creators of Exersmart, a training and rehabilitation program from Our Clinic in London, ON. After years working with Olympic athletes and professional sports teams, a colleague who is both a physician and a chiropractor questioned why the same theories of fitness couldn’t be used for the general population.
“Most people are inefficient with their workouts,” Gaudet explained. “They may be working out at the wrong time of day or focusing on exercises that aren’t bringing value. They might even be doing their exercises in an order that is counterproductive.”
Exersmart from Our Clinic combines exercise physiology, kinesiology and medical science to maximize fitness and rehabilitation efforts. The program is flexible enough to deliver effective programming whether you want to work out at the gym or at home.
“We can work with any environment and level of equipment,” said Gaudet. “If you want to work out at home and don’t have any fitness equipment, we can develop a personalized plan that uses what’s at hand. Not everyone is comfortable at a gym so they avoid exercise.”
Mike Ciacco, a kinesiologist and CEO of Our Clinic, appreciates how the program can help a wide range of people from those who haven’t exercised before to people who are training for competitions.
“There are so many people who are afraid to exercise because they have pain or are afraid they’ll hurt themselves,” Ciacco stated. “Getting started with Exersmart from Our Clinic is easy. An assessment with our Treatment Navigator then Exersmart testing will help define your personal plan. We can create a structured program and even an unstructured one for people who want a less formal program. Your personal program is monitored by healthcare professionals and its effectiveness is measured regularly.”
Unstructured programs measure your daily activities and the value they bring to your fitness. Gaudet said the unstructured program measuring is more precise than other apps and technologies designed to record your daily activities.
“Our job with Exersmart from Our Clinic is to make sure your plan is effective, whether you’re trying to lose fat, increase your heart health, get well after an injury or training for a marathon,” Gaudet added. “There’s so much junk training out there. Even Olympic athletes don’t train as hard as many people do at the gym.”
Exersmart from Our Clinic is available at their Fanshawe Park Road West location or online for those who live outside of the area. The program may be covered under employment health benefits.
“Having Exersmart from Our Clinic potentially covered by employment health benefits is a real advantage for people at risk of serious health issues,” said Ciacco. “For instance, people who are pre-diabetic or at risk for diabetes would benefit from Exersmart from Our Clinic. Many pre-diabetics are overweight, inactive people who would struggle to get started on a fitness program. We can help.”
