Over the last 5-10 years more and more strength and conditioning coaches are realizing the benefits of mindful forms of exercise. SBT helps personal trainers, athletic trainers, physiotherapists and chiropractors whose diverse clientele include everyday and professional athletes alike. SBT is founded on the basis that athletes can benefit tremendously when they fuse contemporary Pilates and core-based training by applying them through sport-specific exercise. This concept enables athletes of all fitness levels and abilities to better prepare their bodies for sport and rehabilitate from injury.
As an innovative Pilates-based core training specialist, SBT founder Sally Belanger has worked one-on-one with a variety of clients ranging from professional athletes to those with acute or chronic injuries looking to enhance their rehabilitative and post-injury exercise regime. Her reputation within the health and fitness arena has grown exponentially over the past decade and her theory on "fused" training has taken the industry by storm.
Athletes of all levels have increasingly been reaping the benefits from alternative methods of exercise to increase power, align the body and work the core. As a result, strength trainers are seeking a means to learn the basics of Pilates for their own elite training programs or they are calling upon certified instructors who work one-on-one with their athletes. Athletes are still training daily, but the focus on conventional weight training is being complemented with work on balance, flexibility, core stability and mental focus. That's where SBT comes in.
"Sally Belanger's extensive knowledge has helped me become more aware of my body in everyday life and in sport. She has taught me new methods of muscle strength training and activation that enhance my game, giving me an optimal on-ice performance."
