VTA is a fitness training studio located in beautiful Ventura California. We offer a unique approach to strength training in combination with recovery and restoration techniques. We provide personalized, one-on-one service at a private and intimate studio. Our approach is straightforward. Our clients achieve their goals by tackling challenging, tailor-made workouts that are results-oriented, do not require an unrealistic time commitment, and are dependably safe.
1st Step RESTORE
VTA works first to restore your body’s muscular system, bringing back balance and communication that was lost through stress, trauma and overuse. This is done with Muscle Activation Techniques™ which is a revolutionary approach to the assessment and correction of muscular imbalances, joint instability, and limitations in range of motion within the human body. MAT™ is a non-invasive technique, designed to balance the muscular system of people of all ages.
VTA starts out with a thorough assessment gathering as much info possible to analyze the structural integrity of the muscular system. After we figure out how your body is doing functionally then a program can be designed specifically to address your individual weaknesses and limitations.
2nd Step TRAIN
Genetic backgrounds, medical histories, lifestyles and goals vary. We train women and men from age 14 to age 91. Some are preparing for special athletic events or are looking to improve their performance in a particular sport. Some wish to regain fitness following an injury. Others simply desire to look and feel their best but don’t know where to start. Many just want to exercise without being in pain. During your complimentary consultation and extensive assessment session, you’ll give us the scoop, and we’ll design an initial plan for you. But the customization of your program won’t stop there. As your body changes the plan changes with it.
Our carefully designed training programs tap into the body’s valuable resources, stimulating its adaptive capacity. As your body restores and replenishes itself following workouts, you’ll see dramatic improvements in your strength and stamina. Your metabolism will increase, and you’ll experience enhancements in muscle tone and a reduction in fat.
It’s neither the volume nor the duration of workouts that counts. Rather, it’s our clients intense levels of precision and effort that produce results. The majority of our clients train with us only once or twice per week, and each session lasts 30-60 min. You’ll therefore train with us, with great focus, for just 30 to 60 minutes per week. Then you can get back to living.
First, do no harm. Injuries debilitate and hinder progress. At the beginning of each training session, you’ll update us on how you felt following your most recent workout, and you’ll tell us about any changes in your sleep habits, diet, activity levels, stress levels and overall health. We’ll use your feedback along with some checks and balances on our end to see what you’re capable of that moment and to adjust your day’s session accordingly. During each session, we’ll coach you on how to use proper form and control to prevent injury. And following your workout, we may recommend tools and techniques for you to use in studio or at home to promote recovery.
3rd Step MAINTAIN
Enjoy your favorite activity without any pain or frustration and achieve new heights in performance that you never thought were possible. Exercise is not a program it’s a process, a LIFELONG process. Also a HEALTH process. Our exercise should promote our health, not deteriorate it. As our bodies are continuing to age we have to realize that maintenance is progress.
