How do you know athletic training may be right for you?
You’re not in the physical shape you want to be.
You understand that you don’t need to “feel the burn” to see results.
Prepping your body to be its best long-term is a priority.
“Homework” from your trainer is something you look forward to doing.

The main difference between an athletic trainer and a personal fitness trainer is in what setting they are working.
Both trainers work with individuals who are looking to improve their health and fitness level.
Athletic trainers work with other medical providers (e.g. chiropractors and medical doctors) to diagnose, treat, and prevent injuries. Patients receive help from an athletic trainer to rehabilitate muscles and other parts of the body to perform their best. Because they are working in a medical setting to help patients improve health outcomes, they must be licensed and complete continuing education on an on-going basis.
Personal fitness trainers may be certified by a third-party organization, but they are not required to have any certifications or be licensed.

Athletic Training FAQs and Answers
According to the National Athletic Trainer’s Association (NATA), “Athletic training encompasses the prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of emergent, acute or chronic injuries and medical conditions. Athletic training is recognized by the American Medical Association (AMA), Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as an allied health care profession.”
Athletic training is ideal for any individual who wants to rehabilitate their body after an injury or has a health goal they want to achieve.
All of our athletic trainers have additional specializations and collaborate on a daily basis with a variety of other healthcare providers (e.g. chiropractors, medical doctors, acupuncturists, and functional medicine doctors) to help patients achieve better health overall.
Many patients have rehab care recommended by their chiropractor as part of their treatment plan to prevent future injuries. However, you are not required to be a patient of any doctor at the clinic to see an athletic trainer.
Please wear comfortable athletic apparel and tennis shoes for your athletic training session.
The number of athletic training sessions that are recommended will vary based on a patient’s specific health condition and goals.
