Optimal Form & Fitness Exercise Class
Description: These Form and Fitness classes focus on core activation and co-contraction of stabilizing musculature about the hips and shoulder complex and strengthening in various postures. Learn how to stop overusing your neck and shoulder musculature to free you from pain and tension. We will use foam rollers, Swiss balls, exercise bands, weights, and balance discs in the class but you will come away with the proficiency to use your own body weight to work all the core stabilizing muscles for challenging exercises to do on your own. You will be taught how to exercise safely and effectively so that you can participate in any type of fitness program without fear of injury. You will feel more flexile balanced, coordinated and strong so you can go out and do the things you love!

*On Tuesdays, the 8:45 am class is faster paced with less individual cueing for those who have been coming for a while. The slightly slower pace of the 10:15 am class allows for more one on one instruction which is helpful for newer clients and those with any type of restrictions or injuries so we can determine if you are overusing or compensating with different muscle groups. The Thursday class is designed for beginners or those who want a slower class or more individual attention.
