This class is about restoring, strengthening, maintaining, preventing
- Restoring flexibility, stability, posture, alignment, balance, movement
- Strengthening muscles, bones, neuromuscular coordination
- Maintaining a higher level of activity and function
- Preventing pain, musculoskeletal wear and tear
This is unlike any other fitness class you have taken. This class is designed to restore what your body has lost due to pain and injury so you can live the most active, pain-free lifestyle you deserve.
The Neuroscience Behind The Class…
The central nervous system (CNS) is the control center for every movement we make. In our first few years of life, the CNS develops in a way that gives us good posture, stable joints and flawless movements that are meant to last a lifetime.
Unfortunately, the pain and injuries we experience throughout life changes the way our brain controls movement. We develop subtle, “compensations” that most of us aren’t aware of. Compensations change the way we are naturally designed to move and we end up sacrificing alignment, flexibility and stability somewhere in the body. Joint stress and muscle strain from faulty movement builds up to a point where the body starts breaking down and we develop painful “wear and tear” conditions, such as arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, disc bulging, herniation, degeneration, and so on.
The good news is there are exercises that can “reboot” the brain to eliminate faulty movements so we can move and exercise in a way that builds strength and stability without wearing down our joints.
Most of these exercises are based on a relatively new, ground-breaking approach called Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS). What is DNS?
How This Class is Different…
During the class, we will be able to identify your compensations and movement faults on the spot and show you how to correct them. Our philosophy is to train proper movements first, then strengthen a better movement pattern by adding resistance.
This class will teach you how to…
- Move the way your body was naturally designed to move
- Reintroduce fundamental movements that are the foundation for a stronger, more stable body
- Retrain your brain so that new, less damaging movements become automatic
- Perform strengthening exercises that promote proper joint stabilization and body alignment
- Exercise in a way that is safer and less stressful to your joints
- Perform exercises that improve your posture
- Strengthen your body’s “weakest links”
The goal of any exercise program should be to build your body up without breaking it down. That is what this class is all about.
