What is MAT™?

Muscle Activation Techniques™ or MAT™ is a specific, exercise-based, non-medical process for evaluating an individual's ability to produce efficient muscle contraction. Loss of muscle contraction results in a decreased range of motion, and therefore decreased physical performance and decreased joint stability

What Makes MAT™ Unique:

Muscle Activation Techniques™ does not force the body to change, but instead works with it to make improvements.

MAT™ Specialists listen to your body's responses and adjusts the session when necessary. Because evey client is treated like an individual, no two sessions are the same.

MAT™ improves a muscle's ability to contract, which tends to increase range of motion (flexibility) and, muscular and joint strength.

The goal of MAT™ is not to "relax" muscles, but instead to "activate" muscles!

The MAT™ programs offered at True Fitness include:

  • 3-Month Jumpstart Program
  • 6-Month Muscle Recharge Program
  • 12-Month TOTAL Muscle Reconditioning, Maintenance and Education Program
