A mobile fitness team has arrived on the island offering personalized training sessions for all ages either inside their home, or outside under the bright Florida blue sky of the Sanibel Causeway Island, parks, trails, or any desired location of the client.

"Basically what we are doing is we are eliminating drive time to the gym. No gym costs. No contracts. Be outdoors in the beautiful sun, breathing the fresh air, viewing the stunning Florida island and beach settings. The benefits are tremendous too. People tend to stick with it (exercise) more and adopt this outdoor physical lifestyle," Organic Fitness Solutions Owner Bryan Giordano said.

The business is named Organic Fitness Solutions, not only because Giordano is a big promoter of organic foods, but because he wants people to get back outside.

The mission of Organic Fitness Solutions focuses on strategies and solutions to encourage people to start exercising and keep exercising regularly their entire life. The business caters to all fitness levels and ages because scientifically every function of the body can be improved. Their top priority is safety of their clients, followed by a fun and effective workout to achieve a goal.

Giordano said the mission is important because of the benefits of physical activity, which plays a major role in prevention treatment of most major illnesses. He said all it takes is 30-minutes of light to moderate exercise two to three times a week, which can include a one to two-mile walk, or small resistance training session. When an individual practices this type of schedule, Giordano said the statistics are staggering of the decrease in risks of the diseases.

"We always say in the fitness industry if you could package exercise into a pill it would be the most prescribed medicine in the world," Giordano said, adding for such reasons as increased cardiovascular function, increased glucose control and increased feelings of well-being.

Fitness, he said, also leads to the decreased instances of colon cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer, which are all top killers.

The foundation of Organic Fitness Solutions contains five major components that have daily, life applications. The first one is muscular strength for such activities as lifting, carrying groceries and carrying suitcases. The second component is muscular endurance for such activities as walking upstairs, sweeping a driveway and shoveling snow. The third is cardiovascular respiratory for endurance, and aerobic conditioning for such activities as running, cycling, swimming and walking.

"They are walking to the store, across their kitchen and this helps. Believe it or not a lot of people struggle with this, which is why I am focusing on this," Giordano said.

The fourth component, flexibility, full range of motion and balance, is huge because it prevents any muscular skeletal injuries that have to deal with bones and muscles. He said maintaining correct body posture and to complete every day bending, reaching and getting up are a part of the fourth component.

"You don't know how many clients I have who have a goal of just getting out of their chair without having someone to pick them up," Giordano said. "I will go through exercises with them for a few months and they are getting up on their own without any assistance."

The final component is mind, body and vitality. He said this component is to minimize, or alleviate unnecessary stress, and tension from the body through the integration of physical exercise and mental focus.

The mobile fitness team uses Organic Fitness Solutions vehicles that are outfitted and integrated with all the necessary equipments for a safe, fun effective, full body workout whether it's heavy lifting, or lighter resistance training.

The business offers one-on-one training, or small group training for its clients. Giordano said he likes one-on-one training because an individuals needs are very specific.

In case clients forget a towel, sunglasses, sunscreen, water, fresh organic fruit and protein shakes, Organic Fitness Solutions will provide them during the session.

"I want my clients taken care of, hydrated and nourished," Giordano said.

When he initially meets with his clients he does a complimentary consultation where he sits down and talks with them. The packet includes medical history, specific goals, history with exercise and what they have had troubles with in the past.

"We call ourselves a solution company because we will find the solutions to overcome any barriers or obstacles," Giordano said.

Giordano plans on conducting a Fitness Fun Run on the island. He said individuals will get together, but throughout the run they will stop and do exercises using the earth - a rock, tree, a bench - to get a cross training affect.

Giordano and his staff are fully insured, licensed and certified, as well as CRP, First-Aid and AED trained.

Giordano will soon be certified in medical fitness training, which is another tool that will help him do physical therapy, injury, hip and knee replacement training. He is also furthering his education to offer pre and postnatal training.

Giordano, originally from Connecticut before moving to New Hampshire, was always very athletic in school. He was on an environmental kick before fitness took over when he noticed how happy people were when they were healthy, how they had a glow about them.

"I'm not in this for the looks, it's way bigger than that," Giordano said about living better.

He said it's about making exercise a lifestyle - practice mindful eating and exercise - slow and steady wins the race.

The business can be found both on Facebook and Twitter.

Giordano also launched an app, Organic Fitness Solutions, for both Android and Apple devices. The app allows individuals to see his availability, pictures, what the business is about and buy, book and reschedule session appointments. He said when individuals check into their location with Organic Fitness Solutions they will receive points, which will go towards money off of their next session.

Appointments can be scheduled between the hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment only on Saturday and Sunday.
