Why should you incorporate foam rolling ?

Research suggests foam rolling increases flexibility, mobility, and circulation. We all probably need to increase flexibility to some of our muscles. Furthermore, an increase in circulation will decrease the chances of minor injuries during exercise.

While most clients do not like the feel of foam rolling across trigger points and tight muscles, some clients (believe it or not) LOVE to foam roll across their bodies. Foam rolling before and after exercise can be beneficial. Foam rolling can also decrease stress and tension in your muscles.

Choosing the right foam roller is important. Perhaps choose a softer foam roller to start, modify your position for less pressure, and roll slowly to ease you into a steady routine. Rolling slowly has been proven effective in recent research while moving quickly up and down the foam roller has not.

Be mindful of those areas to avoid such as knees, neck, low back, and groin.

Last but not least be consistent and use your foam rollers on a regular basis. Remember practice makes PERMANENT. Have Fun!

Men Pilates Continues!

Our guys are gaining core strength, more flexibility, and specifically working on their posture. We have had lots of fun teaching these men over the weeks. We opened up a new class for the guys on Thursday at 6:30 am and we are continuing our meeting on Saturdays at 8 am. Plenty of time to come in, work out, and get to work!

WK 4 Mens Pilates

Our fantastic group of guys are doing so well! We are four weeks in and their posture is changing. These guys are finding their core connections, sitting up correctly, standing correctly, finding their balance, and the concentration is amazing! We opened up a Thursday 6:30 am class so that these men could come and take a second class each week and have time to get to work and get on with their busy schedules.

If you are interested in taking a Pilates class just for men please call us. We are hoping more of you will take the challenge and see for yourself!
