At Revolution Physical Therapy Weight Loss, we take a scientific approach to therapeutic exercise that will enable you to achieve optimal results. Our professional Exercise Physiologists will prescribe specific exercise programs based on your unique Diagnostic Testing results. Your program and training modalities will be based on your fitness level, exercise experience, gender, age, weight, health conditions, and goals.

Our Exercise Physiologists

  • All Exercise Physiologists are certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, National Strength and Conditioning Association, or American College of Sports Medicine

  • Exercise Physiologists hold a Master’s or Bachelor’s of Science degrees in Exercise Science, Kinesiology, Exercise Physiology, Biology, Anatomy, or a related field

  • We utilize the Position Papers of the American College of Sports Medicine for exercise prescription

  • Our entire staff holds a current certification for CPR or Advanced Cardiac Life Support through the American Heart Association or the American Red Cross

Your Exercise Physiology Session

  • Each session is one hour in duration

  • Sessions may include:

- Resistance training with body weight, free weights, and resistance bands
- Cardiovascular exercise such as biking, running, elliptical, and stairs

  • Our staff uses a combination of both resistance exercises and cardiovascular exercises to aid in improving cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength, and expend high amounts of calories

  • We utilize heart rate zones based on your Diagnostic Tests to create safe and effective programs.

What Types of Exercises Will I Do?

Resistance Training

What Is It?

  • Resistance Training includes body weight exercises, weight training, and exercise using resistance bands

What Does It Do?

  • Resistance Training is the best vehicle to build lean muscle tissue, increase your metabolism and reduce body fat and weight

Cardiovascular Exercise

What Is It?

  • Cardiovascular Exercise uses continuous exercise to elevate the heart rate for a minimum of 10 minutes at a time performed over multiple repetitions or performed once for 30 minutes or more
  • Various forms of Cardiovascular Exercise include running, biking, jump rope, elliptical training, circuit training, swimming, rowing, and many others

What Does It Do?

  • Cardiovascular Exercise primarily uses stored fats for fuel and can be sustained for extended periods of time
  • Cardiovascular Exercise strengthens the heart and lungs, expends large amounts of calories, and burns body fat

Active Rest / Heart Rate Training

What Is It?

  • This technique intersperses cardiovascular exercise between resistance exercise to maintain an elevated heart rate

What Does It Do?

  • Results from your Cardiopulmonary Exercise Test will be used to create Exercise Zones. By keeping your heart rate within these Exercise Zones, your workout gives you the dual benefits from both resistance and cardiovascular training
  • Creates efficient workouts that expend large amounts of calories in short periods of time

Peripheral Heart Rate Training

What Is It?

  • This workout alternates upper and lower body exercises with cardiovascular exercise

What Does It Do?

  • Maintains an elevated heart rate during exercise to produce the dual benefit of cardiovascular and resistance exercise
  • Best for quick and efficient exercise sessions
  • This form of exercise offers high caloric expenditures in short periods of time, making the heart work harder to shunt oxygenated blood to the upper and lower extremities

Circuit Training

What Is It?

  • A series of resistance exercises perfomed consecutively
  • Short periods of rest are used between sets to encourage an aerobic effect

What Does It Do?

  • Elevates the heart rate during exercise
  • Improves cardiovascular endurance
  • Increases muscular endurance

High Intensity Interval Training

What Is It?

  • This training technique utilizes the Exercise Zones created from your Cardiopulmonary Exercise Test. You will exercise at high intensities within these zones for short periods of time followed by extended rest

What Does It Do?

  • Drastically improves cardiovascular fitness
  • By incorporating high intensity exercise for short periods, you will expend larger amounts of calories over the course of a workout

 

Excess Post Exercise Oxygen Consumption

After high intensity workouts, your metabolism will stay elevated for extended periods of time, allowing you to expend calories even after the workout is complete.
