WELCOME TO IFAST AND IFAST PHYSICAL THERAPY
Specializing in improving athletic performance and eliminating muscular imbalance through physical therapy, semi-private training, nutritional counseling, professional athletic training and youth conditioning.
IFAST was founded in 2008 with a focus on assessment-based, semi-private, personal training. Since that time, Men’s Health magazine has named us one of the Top 10 Gyms in the Country three times (2009, 2010, 2014); we were equally pleased when Women’s Health magazine called us a “kick-ass workout joint” and named us a 2013 Fitness Award Winner. We’re also super pumped to be the official trainers of the Indy Eleven professional soccer team.
IFAST is co-owned by Mike Robertson and Bill Hartman. Robertson is president of Robertson Training Systems and one of the premier performance coaches in the world. He helps clients and athletes from all walks of life achieve their physique and sports performance goals. Hartman, a physical therapist and sport performance coach for more than 20 years, specializes in orthopedics and sports medicine, as well as general fitness, fat loss clientele and athletes at the high school, collegiate, and professional levels.
AT IFAST, WE BELIEVE:
- Custom training programs are more effective and efficient than random standardized workouts.
- The best training programs are based on comprehensive and personalized assessments.
- Everyone is an athlete. Athletes come in all sizes. All ages. All abilities.
- Wherever you are on your journey, we can partner with you to commit to your definition of being healthy and fit.
- You can’t maximize the 1 hour you spend in the gym if you aren’t dialed in for your other 23.
- Investing in continuing education for our staff ensures our clients get the best return on their personal investment.
WHAT IS SEMI-PRIVATE TRAINING?
Semi-private training is an effective and affordable way to get a great training session. Athletes and members are placed into small groups of 2-4, and work out alongside each other.
At IFAST, we individualize the experience by coaching members on personalized programs. In other words, even though you will be training at the same time as other members, you will likely be doing completely different exercises than the other people in your group.
WHY DO WE OFFER SEMI-PRIVATE TRAINING?
Semi-private training is a win-win for both the members and the gym. The member gets a great training session at a fraction of the cost of 1-on-1 personal training. The facility benefits because there is little to no down time, and we are able to help and train more members.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT OUR TRAINING PROGRAMS?
The big difference between our programs and others is the degree of individualization. At IFAST, our extensive assessment process gives us a ton of information to build a customized and detailed training program. Rather than a “one-size-fits-all” approach to fitness, we know that each individual is unique. As such, we customize each program to our members’ individual needs and goals.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT OUR COACHES?
Our coaches are trained to notice and correct all of the subtle issues that come up during training. It’s one thing to get people in the ball park of good technique, but it’s quite a bit more challenging to make good technique great.
Our goal is to have every client who trains with us exhibit great technique on all the major exercises and movements.
But perhaps more importantly, we know a big part of training is building rapport and trust with our members. Each of our coaches works hard to help understand our members, so that we can help them ultimately achieve their fitness goals.
WHAT DOES A TYPICAL IFAST CLIENT LOOK LIKE?
There really isn’t a “typical” IFAST client. On any given day you could be training next to a professional athlete, a stay at home mom, a retired doctor, or high school student. If there is an over-arching theme, however, it’s that all of our clients are committed and focused on achieving their goals. While externally they may look quite different, on the inside they are all wired much the same.
