Active people who want to improve their performance

Regardless of age and skills, if you like sports you like performance! It doesn’t get any better than a personal trainer! The kinesiologist is able to perform a biomechanical analysis specific to your sport or analyze your running pattern in order to improve your performances as much as possible.

Biomechanical movement analysis:

The biomechanical movement analysis is a specific test that looks at all the different phases of a movement. The analysis looks at the muscular, joint and control components of the movement and allows the kinesiologist to target areas that would benefit from further training.

Running:

Running is a sport that has become very popular over the years and its popularity continues to grow. It is a sport where the biomechanical movement analysis can be used. Our kinesiologist, Caroline, is herself a big runner. On the road, on a trail or around obstacles, she craves the speed and the adrenaline she gets from running. Athlete and health care professional, she specializes in sports interventions. Certified from The Running Clinic she will be able to answer even your most precise questions and guide you into this beautiful sport. Running pattern analysis, muscle strength testing, cardiovascular endurance examination, these are just few of the tests she might perform to help you maximize your running skills. She will then present you a personalized training program, help you find the right running shoe for you, and guide you with her personal experience.
