PROGRESSIVE RESISTANCE

What is Progressive Resistance

What is Progressive Resistance?

Progressive Resistance is for clients looking to make improvements in their performance without setbacks such as overuse conditions and injury. It is a scientific approach to performance enhancement and injury prevention.

The ATI staff has the education and knowledge to design science-based programs for clients relative to their goals and the status of their body.

What Makes Progressive Resistance Different?

The ability to test the body using Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) allows the ATI team members to progress with resistance according to the relative capacity of the client.

Traditional resistance training techniques rely on subjective feedback and or outcomes as a means of progression. Our model uses the capacity of the client's nervous system as the measure of progression. This enables the client to obtain the desired results with minimal chance for injury and or overuse conditions.

  • Increase your strength, power, speed, agility, balance, body awareness, metabolic capacity and joint health.
  • Decrease inflamation and recovery time.
  • Prevent injuries and downtime from your fitness routine
  • Keep doing what you love doing...for LIFE!

Matt has helped me prepare my body on a daily basis with his unique skill set.

“I have known Matt for over 10 years now. He has helped me at every level in professional baseball. As my athletic trainer in the Major Leagues he helped me prepare my body on a daily basis with his unique skill set. Matt also excels at making the mind-body connection. I just tell him this is how I need my body to move for my desired swing and he is able to activate the necessary muscles so I can perform at my best. I trust Matt and I highly recommend him to anyone that wants to move and perform better.”

I could not recommend a better training regime and a better way to keep you healthy on and off the field.

"I have been training with Kirk Bradshaw since the 8th grade. I have been fortunate enough to never be placed on the DL. I could not recommend a better training regime and a better way to keep you healthy on and off the field.”

Matt's biggest strength is his ability to develop and prepare return to play programs for athletes who have suffered a repetitive injury.

“I was the Head Athletic Trainer for the Seattle Mariners for 35 years and had the pleasure of supervising and working alongside Matt Toth for 14 plus years. He has a tremendous knowledge base in rehabilitation of all sports-related injuries and his biggest strength is his ability to develop and prepare return to play programs for athletes who have suffered a repetitive injury or someone returning from a surgical procedure. Matt has excellent hands-on skills including the use of Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) which was widely used in our training room to treat shoulder, elbow, back, pelvic and lower extremity issues. Matt really cares about the athletes he treats and goes out of his way to listen to them and make them a part of the healing process which leads to increased trust and faster recovery times and a quicker return to the field of play.”

Doing both MAT and Pilates with Jenny keeps me active and able.

“I have been working with Jenny for several years now and have to say that working with her has been one of the best decisions I have made for my physical and mental health. When I started with Jenny, I was an avid tennis player, I noticed I was having trouble with tennis elbow as well as shoulder/neck tightness and could never seem to access my lower abdominal muscles to fully strengthen them.

We started with MAT which was the most amazing experience as it allowed me to better understand my body’s limitations and I began doing Pilates with her to strengthen the muscles needed to overcome them. Needless to say, I no longer struggle with tennis elbow, I can access muscle groups I never could before and my game improved tremendously as I worked with Jenny each week. Doing both MAT and Pilates with her keeps me active and able. I couldn’t recommend her more.”

Doing both MAT and Pilates with Jenny keeps me active and able.

“Jenny is an extremely talented, very impressive individual. Whether you need Pilates, nutrition advice, help reaching personal fitness goals, help recovering from an injury or the miracles of MAT, Jenny is amazing and can help.

It’s never a cookie cutter workout, always tailored to what your body (and mind) needs or can handle that day. Jenny is attentive as she guides and observes your form, noticing issues and adjusting you or the exercise before you even realize something might be off. I can’t say enough positive things about Jenny.”

Toni Fielder

Doing both MAT and Pilates with Jenny keeps me active and able.

“Before I went in to see Jenny Miller I was struggling to do the every day things in life that we take for granted. I had pain constantly & I was so weak!!

After the very first MAT & private lesson, Jenny gave me I could tell a difference!! She was able to get some large muscles in my quads & glutes to start working again!! I had less pain!! After working with her for almost a year now, I’m able to ski. Jenny has taught me things I can do from home as well! Now I’ve been taking her Pilates class with a fun group of ladies!! I highly recommend Jenny Miller to anyone who needs a very knowledgeable trainer that can do a customized session for injuries!! She’s the absolute BEST!!”

How Progressive Resistance Works

How Progressive Resistance Works

All clients undergo an initial evaluation to determine the status of the body. The evaluation provides the practitioner with information enabling them to design a plan. The plan can incorporate important timelines, goals, and history of injury. Most importantly, the plan incorporates the current state of the nervous system.

Clients then progress with the plan utilizing a combination of MAT and resistance techniques to force adaptations to the body while obtaining real-time feedback.
