Exercise programs normally start with a medical release, body composition measurements, and gathering exercise history and goal setting information. After initial information is gathered, a personal trainer will create a comprehensive exercise program through proper exercise and cardiovascular strategies and technique, a customized eating plan with foods you choose, supplement recommendations, and other intangibles, that is designed to assist their client in reach their goals. Adjustments to the comprehensive exercise program are made real time to ensure optimal results and prevent exercise plateaus.

As exercisers we focus so much on working hard and getting results, that sometimes we forget to balance it with proper recovery strategies. We touched upon nutritional recovery strategies in the page above, but it is also important to incorporate soft tissue recovery strategies such as: stretching, massage, acupuncture, pain management services, and chiropractor services. DMP Fitness has an extensive list of referrals to other health-care providers that can aid you in some of these recovery strategies.
In addition to soft tissue therapies, it's important to get the proper amount of rest in the form of sleep at night or naps during the day. It is generally recommended that you aim for 6-9 hours of sleep at night or squeeze in a nap during the day. Getting the proper amount of sleep can boost your Growth Hormone levels and immune system, decrease your Cortisol levels, and help recover mental capacities as well.
Other tips to increase the quality of your sleep can include the following:
Lastly, it's very important and commonly overlooked to consider your support system when involved in an exercise program. Having family, friends, and co-workers that support your fitness goals will ensure that you stay of track and help you as you progress in your program.
