Athletics Coach Ancaster is a specialized advocate for the athlete. We are very passionate about the well-being, performance and development of the athlete. Our mission is to promote and facilitate the highest standards of sports performance through our services while educating athletes, coaches, parents along with the sports organizations and clubs about the principles and implementation of the Long Term Athletic Development model. This model is promoted by most amateur sports associations in Canada (Basketball Canada, Baseball Canada). As a comprehensive Coach, Jean has completed the I.Y.C.A (International Youth Conditioning Association) certification and courses, and has been dispensing and implementing these stage-related programs for the last 3 years now along with working with older athletes as a strength and conditioning coach.
Our Online Coaching service option is flexible and allows you to learn and process basic nutrition skills by using our “28-day to 6-week challenges” to address a different aspect of your nutrition practice. Whether you are an athlete or active person, our online nutrition coaching programs meet you where you’re at, and allow you to practice the very skills and tasks that those lean people you see around are using.
If you have the classic signs of poor posture such as consistent slouching, a forward head, suffering from chronic aches and pains, you find it difficult to get into certain shapes and movements, and you have no idea how to organize your body for better movement ease of being. You’ve also discovered that your career and lifestyle, is comprised of you sitting more often than you should (6-8 hours per day)
Benefits of posturology:
Do you suffer from an acute injury or chronic condition that is keeping you from participating in your favourite sport or activity? Perhaps you’ve noticed that your movement patterns have become less fluid or less powerful? As a performance-based therapist and coach, it’s important to advocate the quality of movements that athletes and active people use! As we develop chronic joint or soft tissue dysfunctions, we know that a few mechanisms are telling this narrative. One, an old injury may not have been completely managed or resolved to a point where you are able to participate at the former performance level.
Two, your accumulated time sitting every day, has rendered your joints, muscles and connective tissue adapted to the shapes your predominantly sit in, 6-8 hours per day. And three, you have yet to practice a system that allows your body to organize itself statically or within the movement that optimizes the position and alignment to facilitate a neutral spine while creating torque and stability.
Whether you’re a golfer, tennis player, cyclist, runner, triathlete, skier, soccer player, or an athlete of any sort, you’re able to produce well-organized movement patterns, has a profound effect on whether you get injured or not. Tendonitis, shoulder impingements, knee problems and low back issues are quite common for active people who are challenged to move well.
It’s all in the approach to restoring, optimizing and enhancing one’s movement patterns, along with restoring the basic rolling and gliding of joint surfaces, restoring the mobility of sliding surfaces on the skin, and re-establishing proper motor control patterns.
If you have a group health benefits package through your employer or are paying into a private extended plan, it would be worth your while to check and see if you are covered and what the terms and conditions are pertaining to the use of athletic therapy services.
We hold registration with the College of Kinesiologists of Ontario, as well as memberships and certifications with both the Ontario Athletic Therapist Association (OATA) and the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association (CATA). We bill you directly and include our unique certification number when issuing you an invoice for purposes of claiming it under a participating plan if you have one.
Whether you are a fitness buff or a competitive athlete, nutrition plays a vital role in optimizing your recovery from exercise and sports performance. It also contributes greatly towards an overall healthy lifestyle and optimal weight management.
In addition to our Online Nutrition Coaching programs, sport and exercise nutrition coaching matches the client’s or athlete’s training needs, game schedule, tournament schedule and specific nutrient needs.
Any good nutritional plan should start with a comprehensive assessment of your daily habits and life’s demands, that will help your coach understand the complexities of your life and how best to help you to achieve your defined goals. Once I have a good understanding of your exercise program, or team training schedule, we can then appropriate an effective nutrition plan that will target your health and fitness goals
Spectrum Therapy and Fitness is a Fitness Coaching Centre and is owned by veteran Athletic Therapist and Strength and Conditioning Coach Jean LaFleur. Spectrum Therapy and Fitness operate within their home studio located at 123 Moore Crescent, Ancaster, ON, We also have a Sports Therapy clinic that provides athletic therapy services for those who have sustained an injury playing sports, leading an active lifestyle or during their exercise programs. Our clients tend to be athletes or active people who seek resolution from being sidelined from their injury which prevents them from pursuing their health and fitness goals.
Throughout my career as a health and fitness professional, I’ve always been passionate about transitioning therapy patients to becoming training clients. I’ve worked with so many people who’ve come to see me for a lower back injury and then express an interest in extending their fitness practice by having me as their Coach.
Let’s face it, if you’ve ever suffered from chronic pain, injury, or a movement impairment, it was likely due to a lack of mobility in your joints or soft tissue. So, it’s no surprise when you hear about people complaining that can’t enjoy moving anymore or participating in sports, cleaning their garage, or cleaning their house if they’re struggling with chronic pain or lack of mobility.
Whatever your chosen activity is, this is your performance! People who work around the house, on their cars, at work such as laborers, housebuilders, tradespeople, or people who must lift objects at work repetitively. Your body must be ready to perform these tasks in order for you to be proficient at your job, or performance. Moms & dads chasing after their kids, or puppies while picking them up constantly qualifies their performance. Really, anything we do that is movement-based, qualifies you as a Performer in your own life. And of course, if you are a self-proclaimed athlete participating in a team or individual sport, we’ll call that performance as well.
Hi, my name is Jean LaFleur. As you might have guessed, yes, I am French-Canadian. I have the same name that few famous Canadians bear such as our former Prime Minister, Jean Chretien. Another famous figure is the famous hockey player, Jean Belliveau, who played for the Montreal Canadians. Now, I’m not suggesting that I share the same level of fame that these two gentlemen had, only the same pronunciation of their first name, which you may have heard before. My main purpose in life is to help people get out of pain from your first visit, to move better and get back to the active life you love.
I’ve been in the health and fitness industries for 30 years now. While I’m proud to say that I have created the ultimate Personal Training environment in the town of Ancaster, I’m even more proud to say that I have been helping good people such as yourself, achieve some significant and sustainable results.
