Tidal Wave: Reverse the affect of sitting & standing in a flexed position all day! Use our Water Rowers to activate your under-used posterior muscles and row your way to a healthy & balanced body. The rowing combined with a strength building circuit that uses free weights and resistance bands will aid in building muscle strength and endurance, and boost your metabolism.
Ageless Training: A self-paced full body workout for active older adults. Participants are challenged with body weight and resistance training exercises designed to increase strength, stability, and endurance. Lastly, we focus on improving balance through movement patterns and exercises that helps each participant gain a sense of independence and peace of mind.
Body Recharge: A restorative class aimed to give your body a re-set and/or recharge. You will use foam rolling and trigger point balls as well as other methods to bring relief to chronic muscle and joint pain areas. We also explore corrective and developmental exercises (using partner stretching/PNF/yoga poses/Swiss Stability Ball, etc) to activate the “little muscles” and increase stabilization of the joints. This class helps prepare the body for everyday movement and exercise. As important, it benefits individuals making the transition from rehab to fitness. (**Starts first Monday of November -the 7th)
Boot Camp Express: A lunch time butt kicking! A thirty minute High Intensity Training work-out incorporating mostly body weight exercises (But don’t be surprised if you’re asked to pump some iron or stretch a resistance band or two from time to time)!
HIT Mania: High intensity interval training, for faster results in less time.
META-TRiX: Every movement we perform in daily life is a whole body movement. This class will challenge the entire body in every plane of motion using suspension trainers and similar tools. Whether you seek perfection and performance on your mountain bike or skis or simply want to improve strength and stability when taking the stairs, this class will help. (**Starts early to mid November, 2016)
On A Roll - foam rolling and trigger points release.
Learn the basics of self-myofascial and trigger point release through the use of foam rollers. Say What??? (Myofacial release is the application of low intensity forces to soft tissues over a long period of time; effectively allowing contracted muscles to relax). Our fascia, the fibrous connective tissue that surrounds our muscles, sometimes becomes cross-linked and/or attached to muscle or nerves (dis-continuous), which affect the muscle's ability to contract in a balanced manner and results in muscular and/or joint pain and discomfort. We will guide you through some simple methods of using foam rollers to increase blood flow to these regions of your body and help reinstall proper mobility to the fascia fibers and to insure muscle and tissue health.
We provide the mats, rollers, and guidance. We hope that you will bring your curiosity and interest in having a healthy body.
BENEFITS OF FOAM ROLLING:
Increases blood flow to muscles; reduces presence of facia adhesions; better range of motion because muscles are properly stretched and lubricated(improves mobility; ); speeds up muscle repair & recovery; improves performance of body; facilitates balanced muscle performance. Decreased risk of injury (greater mobility and health of muscle tissue reduces the chance of creating improper movement that would result in injury)
