If you exercise and it causes you pain, don't do that anymore. We often think we are invinsible... until we are not. Ask our clients who have survived injuries, surgeries, and chronic pain. #itsnotworthit #WednesdayWisdom #NOnopainnogain

Because we all want to wear a cat sweatsuit and fall asleep at the gym sometimes, don't we?! She was at Fitness-Tek Odessa less than an hour while her pregnant mom had a much appreciated Muscle Activation Techniques session. #gymtime #toddlerlife #fitnesstek #pregnantexercise #safeexercise #MAT

Anyone hurting this morning? We didn't think so... We recommend you tell any "friends" that overdid it last night that your body needs water, nutrient-dense foods, and rest. The idea that you need to punish yourself in the gym for what you did last night can easily lead to injury. It definitely doesn't help if you plan on being active and strong as you age. Don't beat yourself up today - on any level. Your future self will thank you. #themorningafter #hangover #NOnopainnogain #fitnesstek

Thank you, Jeff, for taking the time to write this testimonial last week! 5 stars. We appreciate it! And we appreciate all of your hard work!

Although Jeff's results involve pain going away, we still do not directly deal with pain. We want to get to the source of what is causing pain for many people by increasing muscle contractability using Muscle Activation Techniques.

[5 star review February 18, 2017]
My 80-yr-old mother was suffering terribly from nerve and muscle pain after a major back surgery 3 years prior. She had been prescribed some random "therapies" and a course of heavy narcotics, including anti-depressants from her doctors, who basically gave up on her and just gave her "pain management" meds. She was in such pain 24-hrs a day, at a level 8 of 10. When I found out about MAT and Kevin I asked her to try this therapy as a "last resort". After the first session with Kevin she had a DRAMATIC loss of pain and was able to manage the resultant pain with the techniques she learned from him during her sessions. After the 4th or 5th session her pain level went from an 8 to 3 and she has quit taking most of her medications and is able to manage with over-the-counter NSAIDs. She continues to strengthen and heal and has regained her life again. I was very skeptical that MAT would've worked for her after all the traditional doctors had seen her and couldn't come up with a solution besides heavy medication. MAT has worked miracles for her. I only wish that we had known about MAT before she agreed to have her surgery. I am convinced that she would've been save from so much pain and agony.

Kevin was able to make this difference using Muscle Activation Techniques - and not actually treating the pain. There are MAT Specialists around the globe. Kevin is Tampa's only Master Level MAT Specialist. He is thankful to be able to teach the techniques to other health practitioners as an MAT JumpStart Instructor and MAT Hub Location.

Fitness-Tek's Director of Client Care Kevin Votta is human, too! He recently renewed his commitment to his own health. Why? Because he wants to be able to play with his grandkids someday. That's a big enough reason for him to work with so many clients each week AND still take care of himself. It's not easy and seldom convenient to walk the walk. We know that. That's why each and every one of our clients inspire us on a daily basis. #MondayMotivation #whatsyourWHY #FitnessTek
