PILATES+FUNCTIONAL TRAINING HYBRIDS
Hybrid pilates and functional personal training sessions depending on individual goals. Each session includes a personalized postural and fitness assessments to create a customized program for the individual. We start with building a strong and functional foundation addressing aspects of postural alignment, motor control, muscle imbalances, joint mobility, breathing, and working from the core out. Myofascial release techniques are introduced here. From there we can progress to endurance training and layer on strength using a variety of tools such as pulley systems, kettlebells, and barbells. Inquire for details and we can find a location that fits.
Learn to use proper mechanics when taking barre classes. The barre is the same as a ballet barre used to help with balance when training for various foot and hip patterns in ballet conditioning. Barre classes take this same concept and transforms it so that the everyday person can have access to the ballet inspired movements, but with a focus on toning, integrating fitness and sometimes cardio and interval training aspects as well. Proper form is key to assuring proper muscle target. Imagery and tactile cueing are used to build kinesthetic awareness.
