Physical Therapy Questions:
Will I see the same Physical Therapist for every visit or be bounced around?
You will have the same Doctor of Physical Therapy for every visit. Clue in on the "Doctor of PT" part. You will not see an aid or assistant, ever.
Do you take my insurance?
For physical therapy, we most likely do! We currently are contracted with most major insurance plans, however, call in or click the chat button bellow for a more detailed answer.
What Should I expect on My First PT Appointment?
Initially you will fill out a little paperwork, be offered a cup of coffee, and then will promptly be seen by your Doctor of Physical Therapy. We ask that you wear comfortable clothes that permits your best mobility and which allows for the PT to assess your movement optimally. You will most likely have to work hard your first day.
Training Center Questions:
What Makes Freedom's Group Fitness Different from the Others?
It is well researched that exercise enhances your quality of life. We also are fully aware that exercise is the number one cause for injury. Correction, noisy, unreliable, and poorly executed exercise is the number one cause for injury. Our coaches are Doctors of Movement (Physical Therapy) and are also high level athletes (or have been) who are experts in the mechanics of the human musculoskeleton. Who better to work with than a caring, joyful, grateful, and educated rock star for a fraction of the cost!
Can I Try the Training Center Before Committing?
Yes! We're offering a $49 first month for you to give us a try!
What if I Just Had Surgery or I am Injured, Can I do the Training Center instead of Physical Therapy?
Surgery, no. Injured, not ideal. Although we will have a Physical Therapist presesnt during the Freedom Foundation courses, they will not be able to provide the one on one attention needed to appropriatly rehab an injury, let alone a surgically repaired body part.
How Does the Training Center Work?
It is simple. When you sign up you will initiate your exercise in what we call Freedom Foundations (FF). FF is 8 weeks and is geared toward you, no matter what your fitness level. The classes are specific to safe and effective movement, are flexible for scheduling, and have anywhere from 8-12 people per class. Once you have successfully fulfilled your 8 weeks of FF, you will be offered an array of Tailored Fitness options. The Tailored Fitness Classes are smaller in size (6-8) and geared toward helping you obtain your fitness goals with other like-minded and similar skilled individuals. The Tailored Fitness classes, although less flexibile, are much more structured as in personal training.
How Much Does the Training Center Cost?
This depends on whether you are a Freedom Founder (One of the first 50 to sign up), who you work for, and what package you subscribe to. We have 3 packages to choose from. Basic = 1x/wk and only able to be used at a Freedom Foundations Class. Elite = 2x/wk and offered for Freedom Foundation classes or Tailored Fitness classes. Premium = Unlimited classes/wk and free entry into all live events. The best cost savings are on yearly subscriptions, however, month to month options are available.
Can I Pause my Training Center Membership?
Yes! Most definitely. If you are injured, sick, or pregnant, we will provide you with as much time as you need to get yourself back to exercising regurarly without annoying fees.
I do not have all of the equipment, will the programming still work?
Bands and Bosu balls are really the limiting factors to the conditioning progressions. It would be helpful to have enough bosu balls for each athlete, but not mandatory by any means! When equipment becomes and issue, organization becomes huge. We recommend that you break your team up into groups, and have them go through it like a circuit. This reduces the need for a lot of equipment. Also, foam pads or pit blocks can act as bosu balls. For the bands, we highly recommend the Perform Better brand. Make sure to NOT purchase the XL ones.
Is the 10 week programming for all levels?
Yes! For the lower optional and excel levels, you will need to modifiy and possibly stick to one round. However, we highly recommend that you start this early in their careers. As you get to the higher levels, heavier resistance bands and weights are recommended (as tolerable). Our goal is to eventually provide specific conditioning for each level, however, this will take time, and your help!
How much does the programming cost?
Currently, it is free! All that we ask for is your feedback. Please help us help you! Try and fill those surveys out when they come ;). We truly appreciate it!
My athletes are so sore! Why are the exercises the same for everyday of the week?
First and foremost, congratulations on getting your athletes sore! Hopefully they are sore in the glutes, abs, and upper to mid back. If not, keep an eye on them to make sure they are doing the exercises correctly. As for the repetitive conditinoing: Gymnastics is a sport of repition and perfection. At the beginning of each week, the goal is to introduce the program for the week, and then perfect it by the end of the week. Modify where need be. Also, feel free to provide us with your feedback! We want to do our best to make conditioning easy and effective for you and your athletes.
