Whether you're an athlete, a fitness enthusiast, or someone looking to maintain an active lifestyle, SPARK Physiotherapy's personal fitness physical therapy (PT) programs empower you to push your boundaries, transcend limitations, and confidently achieve your fitness goals. Here's what you should know.

Understanding the Differences Between Personal Fitness Physical Therapy and Personal Training

Personal fitness PT and personal training share similarities but have distinct focuses. Here's how they differ:

  • Personal fitness PT. Led by licensed physical therapists who use their medical expertise to create highly customized exercise plans, personal fitness PT focuses on injury prevention, rehabilitation, and optimizing performance.
  • Personal training. Led by personal trainers, personal training sessions typically center on fitness improvement, weight loss, and muscle gain, with workouts designed to help you reach your goals. 

While both personal fitness PT and personal training can help you improve your health and fitness, personal fitness PT offers a holistic approach by integrating medical knowledge, injury prevention, and performance enhancement into one modality.
