What is kinesiology?

Kinesiology is a science of movement applied to humans to optimize healthy physical activity on a daily basis. Using knowledge of anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, psychology and motor development science, the kinesiologist helps you move better. 

The kinesiologist’s main method of intervention is the use of physical activity to promote health, healthy lifestyle habits, injury prevention and even physical or sports performance.

Our kinesiologists are there to help you achieve a healthy and active lifestyle. They listen to your needs and can create  a program that is adapted to your needs and that allows you to reach your goals.

 

What happens during a appointment?

During your first meeting, the kinesiologist will make a list of your needs and the means necessary to achieve them. A general assessment of your lifestyle and your health is established. The kinesiologist evaluates your cardiovascular, muscular and articular capacities in order to develop a specialized program for you.

The second type of kinesiology appointment is a follow-up session. Whether it’s to review the program, to review the technique of certain movements or simply to come and do their training program under the watchful eyes of our kinesiologist, you will live the kinesiology experience to the fullest. Passionate about movement, our kinesiologists will ensure the proper execution and quality of your exercises with active support and positive advice.
