Countless studies have shown the powerful link between physical and mental well being. This is why Pacia Life Salt Lake City partnered with Wasatch Fitness Academy to give their young adults a unique opportunity to realize their full potential. Wasatch Fitness Academy is a tight-knit strength and conditioning community and gym located in Salt Lake City.
Michael Krushinsky, the founder and head coach at WFA, explained, “While we use pushups and dumbbells and jump ropes as tools for fat loss, strength gains, and injury prevention, our dedication to helping people evolve themselves goes well beyond the physical: we use these same tools to drive the improvement of the whole person, because mental and emotional resiliency is as important as strength and flexibility. And this is why we partner with Pacia Life, to provide private coaching, group training, and nutritional guidance to Pacia students.”
Michael began this path years ago as a classroom teacher working with economically disadvantaged students in Baltimore, and students with unique needs in Providence. He brings his concern for the whole individual, trauma-sensitive strategies, and skill as a movement coach to bear when working with clients, and it's already proven effective for Pacia Life students.
One current Pacia Life student, Alanna, has been working with Michael from Wasatch Fitness Academy for the past month, in private coaching sessions. Back pain, due to a congenital deformation of her spine, has been a near-constant factor for the last 8 years. With Michael, she's been working on building strength in the muscles that support the spine to reduce pain and soreness.
The result: yes, she's gotten stronger, and her usual level of pain is reduced, but more importantly, she has changed how she sees herself and her spine. Alanna has learned to take pride in her strength and to enjoy the process of gaining more.
Another student, Andrew, has been training at Wasatch Fitness Academy for just a few weeks, and the coaches are excited to see how quickly he's progressed. From the first week to the second, Andrew found pride in his drive to do hard work, and experienced the "ah-ha" moment of dreading his session, and then loving how he felt immediately after. Andrew started with private coaching to build his confidence and skills. In the near future, he'll start joining group training classes to provide much-needed social engagement. “I feel stronger and more proud of myself,” said Andrew when asked how WFA has helped him grow.
This holistic individualized approach from Wasatch Fitness Academy has proven to be the perfect partnership to meet the unique needs of Pacia Life’s young adult clients.
