City Club Of Buckhead Evaluation And Customized Programs

Prior to training, each client undergoes a comprehensive fitness evaluation, which may include posture assessment, flexibility assessment, strength test, body composition, physical activity screening, and musculoskeletal history. These results are then used to develop a customized solution to effectively and efficiently address the physical and mental challenges of the client, along with their goals and specific needs.

Each workout is formulated into a linear or nonlinear training format, so whether clients are just beginners, seasoned athletes, involved in leagues or other pro-amateur level sports, coming back from an injury, or simply want to be fit, they see rapid and profound benefits from this scientific approach to training. By focusing on the foundations of core strength, dynamic joint stability, functional training, and the proper mechanics of human movement, our trainers work to empower clients and restore their physical abilities.

“Change is inevitable. Growth is optional”

Caroline Holly, Lobbyist for BCBS of GA
“I have a demanding job, in every sense of the word, and there are days when I come into my training sessions beaten down or emotional bankrupt.  Coach Conner has provided me with an emotional and physical outlet for these feelings.  She gives me suggestions about how to create boundaries within my professional and personal life so that I can flourish.  She has also taught me that it is important to invest in yourself and your health in order for all the other aspects of your life to really be successful. Coach Conner takes an hour each week and teaches me something new about myself.  Through humor, story telling and unabashed honesty she shows me how to take my life to the next level and how to move to a better place.”

“Mindful movement must be felt not just thought”
