Strength Training with your Personal Trainer is an important aspect of any weight loss, fitness, or performance program and is used to increase your lean muscle mass and boost your metabolic rate. The appropriate Strength Training program for each client is designed specifically with the goals, needs, wants and abilities of the particular client in mind.

Until now, most training programs have been based almost entirely on the experiences and goals of bodybuilders, coaches, and athletes. Scientifically unsupported training programs are not designed to meet the needs of our increasingly de-conditioned and injury-prone society.  The National Academy of Sports Medicine’s exclusive Optimum Performance Training (OPT) method utilized by the Fitness Professionals at The Los Gatos Swim & Racquet Club represents the industry’s first and only comprehensive training program based on current scientific research that provides undisputed results specific to individual needs and goals.

Creating a new industry standard for success, OPT virtually eliminates programming and program-design guesswork for anyone at any fitness level. By following the systematic OPT method; our certified professionals develop training and conditioning scientifically proven to produce remarkable results.  By incorporating multiple types of training—flexibility, cardio respiratory, core, balance, reactive, speed, agility, quickness, and strength—into every program, the revolutionary and easy-to-follow OPT method improves all biomotor abilities and builds high levels of functional strength, neuromuscular efficiency, and dynamic flexibility.
