Pilates on a Roller – Thursdays 9:30 – 10:30am
Pilates exercises are brilliant at strengthening the muscles of the torso commonly referred to as you CORE. But in addition to making your “six-pack” strong, you are also training every other part of your body through the development of greater and greater awareness of you full movement potential. IN THIS CLASS, the addition of small equipment, such as foam rollers and weighted body balls to the Pilates format, adds dimensions of balance and strength training that enhance your results. This class promises to enhance all of your other workouts!!!
X-Body EMS Workout – Private sessions (40 min)
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electrical impulses. You’ll be shocked by the results! The electrical impulses are generated by a device and delivered through electrodes on the skin directly above the muscles. The biggest advantage of EMS training is that full-body workout can take as little as 25 minutes, allowing you to maximize your day. Rebecca Bell will be offering one-on-one training on Tuesday mornings with other potential openings during the week based on instructor and space availability. Contact the office to inquire about a trial session.
