When motivation to improve health and fitness hits, Pulse Fitness (located on the SE corner of Legacy & Pima) may be the answer for you to actually achieve AND surpass your health and fitness goals. In fact, our very own Lea Ann Hervey can testify to exactly that: “I joined Pulse Fitness in June of 2011 after I had been unsuccessful at a couple of different types of gyms. I took them up on an offer to give the gym a try for one month to see if it was the right fit for me. Within a few sessions, I was convinced that I would succeed in reaching my fitness goals by working out at Pulse. They offer many different programs for people of every fitness level and even though I was in horrible shape when I joined, they never made me feel uncomfortable. They worked with me, gave me exercise and nutrition tips that helped me reach my goals. I am more confident in my athletic abilities now than I have ever been in my entire life. I reached my initial goals and have since established new goals to work on through the holidays and into the New Year. I would highly recommend Pulse to anyone hoping to improve their health.”
Pulse Fitness is very unique in that their foundation for improving health and fitness is based upon the “functional movement system” used by physical therapists, professional athletes and even the Navy Seals! Functional training involves strengthening and increasing flexibility in a way that mimics one’s daily life. It is training in movement patterns – pulling, pushing, lifting, squatting – and will vary with each individual depending on their activity type and level. Not only do participants gain strength, flexibility and lose inches but, in the process, they also dramatically reduce the risk of injury from performing daily tasks.
As Lea Ann points out in her testimony above, current fitness level does not matter and the personnel at Pulse Fitness are all very welcoming and pride themselves in helping individuals achieve and surpass their goals whether a professional athlete or a first time gym visitor! Tim Lyons is the owner and is very engaging and, in fact, considers himself invested in your success. He truly cares about each individual and strives to create an experience that exceeds expectations.
Tim and his staff consider themselves lifelong students of physical training and attend many workshops and seminars to stay abreast of the newest and latest in techniques, equipment and nutrition. The first visit to Pulse Fitness includes a complete assessment of strength, flexibility, imbalances and range of motion. A discussion of your goals, daily activities and nutritional habits will follow from which a specialized plan is designed to get you going. There is a variety of training environments from which to choose including individual and group personal training and their very popular “Boot Camps”. There is a “Foundations” class offered for those who need to work on form and properly learn all the basic movements used in functional training. And the “gym” is conveniently open 24/7 for members’ use in-between training sessions.
What is really enticing is that you can try Pulse Fitness for one month for only $89! That includes the Functional Movement Screening and goal setting appointment, a custom program design, unlimited boot camps and 4 training sessions. From there, there is an array of plans, one of which is sure to fit your needs.
