you are looking for, we will only do this after you have completed all medical questionnaires and signed waivers and statement of

recommended program without supervision of a PFS Trainer is at your own risk. Consult your medical professional prior to
beginning any new exercise program.

Navy SEAL PT (Physical Training) is  the highly effective method of training the entire human body for increases in endurance,
strength and elite performance. Historically, the Navy SEALs PT typically consisted of mostly body weight exercises known as  
Calisthenics, as well as running, swimming and pull-ups. Todays modern SEAL however, is an even better equipped, highly
trained and developed warrior athlete with the addition of the CrossFit Methodology blended into the already optimal Navy
SEALs physical fitness program.

used within the U.S. Navy SEALs (Naval Special Warfare) Community and the CrossFit community.

What is the difference between Personal Training and Fitness Consulting?
Personal Trainers- is specifically working one-on-one with a client, assisting and guiding such client in meeting the fitness
goals of the client. The trainer of course, having some limitations. Thats if your trainer is Nationally Certified by an Accredited
agency. Most are NOT! Demand to see your trainers credentials and see if those credentials are listed within the NCCA -
http://www.noca.org

More "Personal Trainers" than not, tend to NOT be very knowledgeable about nutrition and in some cases dont have a clue at
all about nutrition or even sports nutrition, but pretending that they do. Typically giving out not only wrong information, but often
times, dangerously bad information. If you have any health conditions or are just in need of serious in-depth nutrition info, I
advise seeking the assistance of a Registered Dietitican(R.D.) (LD)

Fitness Consultant/consulting- is on a larger scale, offering numerous services that also include personal training. As with
PFS, we are a full scale fitness consulting company providing massage therapy, Nutrition counseling and hi-tech body
composition screening unlike the typical local gyms using inacurate, unreliable and very inconsistent methods. As we
progressively develop, it is the vision of PFS to encompass a few additional services that better assist us in providing you as
our clients with better health, and increased performance for all age groups, including youth, adults young, middle aged and
the elderly, both on the field(sports & the combat field) as well as off.


Calisthenics, Machines, Free-Weights, Aerobics or Plyometrics?    
What works and what Doesn't?

THEY ALL DO!  Each has a specific purpose and they all provide a benefit. Some have a demand within most well designed
fitness programs, however, there are limitations to using machines. Combining most of the above together into your program
is optimal. This is especially so for competitive athletes and military spec-ops warriors. A need for an article exists for this
question to cover the basis with valuable details. Until then, please see our "
PFS-News" page and "Fitness 101" for detailed
information and a response to this question as an article will be published soon!
