How Our Unique Vancouver Kinesiology / Strength Coaching Services Will Help You Get Your Goals on Track

Improving your technique, moving pain free with active rehabilitation, or leading a healthy lifestyle? Starting with our intake form and continuing through your program- we want to know WHY you’re here. What brings you in? What do you want to get out of strength and conditioning, and why does this matter? 

Our consults and initial visits normally begin with the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA). This rapid head-to-toe assessment helps us understand how the whole body and local areas affect your issue. Detailed assessment guides effective program development designed to best meet your performance goals. 

Our kinesiologists / strength coaches aim to educate clients in order to safely and effectively perform all exercises within an individualized program. Exercise program design is based upon current standards of practice backed up by current research and tried-and-true methods. 

Our coaches bring considerable experience, studies and mentorships in strength training, mobility and a wide range of sports. This doesn’t mean we only work with Olympic hopefuls, Ironman triathletes and yoga gurus. We also offer active rehabilitation services for those who just want to move pain-free. Our goal is to help anyone who is ready to move beyond pain and into performance – however that is defined for your lifestyle.

Speaking of the SFMA head to toe assessment, our physios, chiros, massage therapists, and kinesiologists have ALL studied to ensure we can see the body through the same lens. With this ability, we then apply our unique individual skills to help you reach your goals. In time, clinicians learn to understand one another’s strengths and the client wins.

Wow what an experience! I booked with Diana to address my recurring knee pains with weight training. She did a great job in the assessment and immediately recognized the possible mobility issues that are causing the discomfort. We went through a few exercises and some physical treatment that left me feeling better than ever! This was my first time, but Diana didn’t waste any time in making it a comfortable experience. Looking forward to booking again!

I came into see Diana for sacral nerve pain that I've been experiencing for quite some time over the last few weeks. Over the entirety of our session, my hip range of motion increased substantially and I was able to move pain free even before our session finished! She educated me extremely well and gave me great home exercises to work on until our next session. Thank you Diana and the team at Lift!

First visit at the new Lift Clinic location, which moved from Kingsway onto Knight street, around the corner. Space was clean, and I love the cushy flooring. RMT visit with Michael Fung was super as usual, and I'll be working on the stretch Mike showed me to try to ease my ropey back and shoulder muscles. Good covid safety protocol adherence. Felt safe and comfortable during my visit.

Daniel is absolutely fantastic. Not only does he get you up and moving again as quickly as possible, he knows when to push you and when to be more cautious in the amount of physical activity you should be doing. Highly recommended.

After needing shoulder surgery back in 2017, I was so afraid that I would be one of those volleyball athletes who struggles with shoulder pain their entire career. Thanks to Travis and his team at Lift Clinic, I trust that this isn’t the case. Travis helped me so much throughout my recovery, and has continued to do so over the years. He has so much knowledge of the human body and the importance of the neck when it comes to shoulder health. After releasing tension in my neck my shoulder felt stronger and without pain. I am so grateful for Travis and Lift Clinic for helping me keep my shoulder healthy over the years so that I can feel my best out on the court!

I have been going to LIFT for a number of injuries (including lisfran foot fracture, torn rotator cuff/shoulder pain and runner's wear-and-tear) over the last few years - they're comprehensive approach is second to none. They don't just treat the issue, they are committed to finding the root cause and fixing that. If I could rate 6 stars I would.

FAQ - things people ask us about Kinesiology / Strength Coaching

Kinesiology is the science of human movement and it’s impact on health, society, and qualify of life. It is a very broad field of study that includes:

  • Physiology
  • Biomechanics
  • Psychology
  • Motor Learning
  • Sociology, and many more! 

Of course! Whether you’re an elite athlete or have never participated in organized physical activity, we can train you! All you need is a positive mindset and a goal to strive for. 

It depends. What are your goals? How much time do you have available to work with a strength coach? What’s your training status (how long have you been training for)?

We can’t say for certain what your program design will look like, but what we can tell is this: our programs are individually tailored to best meet your needs and resources. The only way to know for sure is to book an initial consultation and we’ll work together on a program that works best for you!

 

Kinesiologists / strength coaches and personal trainers may seem very similar. They both are trained to help clients work towards their fitness goals through individualized  exercise programs. Sometimes the names are even used interchangeably, but there are some key differences:

  • Scope of Practice: Personal trainers are trained to mostly work with healthy, uninjured clients Practicing kinesiologists have in-depth knowledge of exercise prescription and active rehabilitation that can be applied to both healthy and clinical populations. 
  • Education: Kinesiologists undergo a 4 year bachelor’s degree at an accredited university, with specific core content and are required to continue their education on a yearly basis. Personal trainers are required to complete a certificate that can be completed in as little as 6 months (or less). 

What are your goals? What would you doing if you are at 100%? These are just a few questions we ask our clients when they first come to see one of our practitioners. You can also ask yourself this when deciding who to book with. If you are pain-free and your aim is to improve your fitness or exercise technique, you could start with a strength coach. If you’ve got some aches and pains or a persistent injury, other disciplines may be better to start.

We strive to provide  seamlessly integrated collaborative treatment. Our clinicians work together on a regular basis to understand what each us bring to the table. If you start in one discipline, you may be referred to another. At the end of the day, we want to provide you with a plan of care to best meet your needs.
