We specialize in Functional Training which involves exercises in strength, movement, stability, balance, and flexibility. With Functional Training you gain strength and stability in your movement, which means that your everyday activities and your extracurricular activities (biking, hiking, skiing, and so on) become easier and you become more efficient. Every training at Strong Bodies involves upper and lower body movement with focus on the core muscles that stabilize the body. As you increase core strength, you reduce the risk and the incidence of injury. Remember, your first class is always free!
Boot Camp keeps you — your entire body — moving and challenged. Every class is full of variety, but has the same goals: to help you increase muscle strength and endurance and improve overall cardiovascular health. You'll use weighted bars, medicine balls, kettle bells, and more in this circuit/interval-style workout. Every Boot Camp class includes agility training and a core-strengthening finale. The positive atmosphere of this class is contagious and will leave you wanting more. All fitness levels are welcome.
In this 60-minute, strength-based workout, you'll build lean muscle by training all major muscle groups, including the core. You'll use kettle bells, resistance tubing, and your own body weight to get the most from your workout. This class has a lower cardiovascular impact. The exercises themselves are always varied. You'll do timed sets and repetition-based sets that will keep your muscles as confused (a good thing!) and challenged as possible. All fitness levels are welcome.
Bodies of all ages need safe, effective exercise to stay strong and healthy. This class is designed for bodies that may feel older, but whose owners refuse to give in! The focus of this class will be to build strength, balance, stability and flexibility with the use of TRX-assisted exercises, light free weights, bands, balance boards and other safe (and fun!) exercise tools. We will teach you proper form, and work within your personal physical limitations and restrictions. The benefits of this class go beyond improving your physical well-being and will help you feel better, happier, more energized, and empowered! Call Chris at 272-2551 for more information. Classes are drop-in, $10/person.
IFlexibility is far from the only benefit that comes from stretching. Stretching and mobility are just as important to your health and well-being as your cardiovascular exercise and strength training. In this 45 minute class, we will work with foam rollers and balls, mobility and stretching to achieve the important goals of: helping muscles heal; preventing everyday aches and pains; a little time to de-stress, and improving our workouts both inside and outside of the gym. This class is for anyone who sits, stands, or is an athlete!
