How is a personal trainer different from a kinesiologist?
Kinesiologists are experts on human movement. This knowledge and expertise makes kinesiologists the best-equipped personal trainers. Kinesiologists employ their broad range of experience spanning sports team support, clinical testing and more, to develop a workout plan that works for you. Each of our staff members possess a minimum 4-year BSc in kinesiology and are highly-qualified to work alongside you in developing a training regime that targets your unique goals.
How is Kinesiologist different from a Physiotherapist?
A kinesiologist is halfway between a personal trainer and a physiotherapist. Physiotherapists are trained in performing passive treatment on your body that works to target acute trauma or long standing injuries.
Kinesiologists on the other hand, use active treatment (often called active rehab) that utilizes an expert knowledge of movement to retrain your body to overcome and prevent injuries for the long term. This focus on long term goals and a preventative approach to injury is what makes kinesiologists such excellent personal trainers. Find out more here.
Do Kinesiologists have insurance?
Yes, we are covered by the BC Association of Kinesiologists as well as covered for commercial general liability. Our space is also covered by commercial general liability.
How Do I Start Personal Training?
Your first appointment with us will be an assessment. Your kinesiologist will ask you a series of questions about your body, past injuries, medical history and fitness goals. Using this knowledge we work with you to develop a plan that suits your unique needs and targets. During this initial assessment we usually have time to go through a session and prescribe some exercises for you as well. On average these initial assessments last approximately 1.5 hours.
How much does personal training cost?
At Symmetrix we strive to provide our clients with best-in-class personal training. Our sessions start at $80/hr after an initial assessment of 1.5hrs ($120). We also offer packages at a reduced session rate if you are looking to develop a longer term training regime with us.
What should I wear to personal training?
We recommend wearing comfortable clothes for exercising and bring running shoes to change into for the gym. We supply towels, water and there is a shower on site.
Is my training covered by my insurance?
The answer can vary. Most of our clients choose to pay privately, but in many cases you are covered for kinesiology. For example ICBC cases are almost always covered. To find our more please contact us.
