My clients come from diverse fitness backgrounds and body types with varied levels of experience. Across the board, working with these clients and implementing the P.volve method has enabled them to transform and achieve the results they’ve been striving for. Some see results sooner than others, but luckily, determination and consistency are qualities all of my clients possess.
Whether you are an ectomorph, endomorph, mesomorph, or feel like you fall somewhere in between, your body will benefit from a P.volve regimen. How, you ask? It all comes down to the science. With a background in applied functional science, I developed P.volve with a strong understanding of how the body and all it’s muscles and joints work together. While everyone’s body is different, with varying tendencies based on metabolism and build, our muscles and joints function more or less the same. Consider how physical therapy and rehabilitation exercises can be universally applied to patients post-injury to rebuild lost muscles and mobility. P.volve works very much the same way.
Performing consistent high intensity, high endurance training creates pressure on major joints, such as the knees and ankles, and inflammation in muscle groups that tend to bulk easily, such as the quads. Without incorporating functional training exercises, the smaller muscle groups that support the larger muscles and joints get neglected, leading to tightness, restricted range of motion, and injury. Additionally, this sort of intense exercise can, over time, cause physical (and emotional) stress on the body, increasing cortisol levels which then cause further inflammation, and greater levels of fat storage.
With P.volve, I focus on major muscle groups-- the strongest of them all, the glutes-- and the minor muscle groups that we use everyday. Adding light resistance then results in a tightened, sculpted, and toned physique. No matter what shape you’re starting out in, we are using principles rooted in prehabilitation to perform exercises that are injury-preventing, all while carving out your natural figure (and to ensure a universal fit, we’ve started including extenders with all P.ball purchases).Lastly, I do want to emphasize the role that a clean diet plays in any fitness regimen. You can exercise day in and day out, but if you are eating processed foods high in saturated oils, sodium, and unnatural ingredients, then don’t expect results. A wholesome diet, rich in plant-based foods and high quality proteins, will take your efforts to a whole other level.
