I am so excited you are here!
I love creating healthy bodies from the inside out. Starting with the basic exercises of functional movement training, and combining it with Pilates movements will give you the foundational strength that is built from the ground up.
Why Functional Movement Training?
Functional movement training is about performing deliberate exercises to build strength, balance, and proper muscle activation so you move better, become stronger, prevent injuries, and correct habitual movement patterns that lead to pain.
Pilates exercises increase strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, coordination, balance, and correct alignment (posture), which helps prevent injuries and corrects poor movement patterns. How? Pilates mainly uses our intrinsic muscles: the deep most layers closest to the bones, basically the muscles that support the skeleton.
Combining the two creates amazingly strong and fit bodies!
I created this 14-day Pilates Fit Challenge so you can try out my unique Inner Strength Training method for a low cost. Also, this is a great beginner program to start to build that foundational base to move onto the 8-week programs.
In this program you receive 14 workouts. The first workout is 5min, and each day we build and add on additional exercises to learn. So in the end the final few workouts are approximately 30min. Every day when adding the new movement, I go through the basics of the move so you can truly feel it in your body. These movements are going to be our foundational base which we will build upon.
You have the option to workout every day or every other day, finishing the program in 2 weeks up to a month.
IST is about honouring where your body is at and giving it what it needs - a balanced health regime. It’s about creating a strong and balanced body from the inside out. Working our supporting intrinsic muscles helps stabilize the body's foundation, so that our extrinsic muscles (the surface “power” muscles) can do their job properly and purposefully. The IST method works both your intrinsic and extrinsic muscles for a whole body approach to strength and cardio training. While reaching your desired weight is important if that is your goal, IST is challenging, however, is it not about arduously struggling to obtain an impossibly perfect body shape, it’s about creating strong, supported, balanced bodies that can function and move with freedom and ease.
The IST method honours where each and every participant is on their health and wellness journey. As a skilled and experienced certified trainer with a corrective exercise background, I provide modifications and challenges for all exercises so that every client reaches their full potential safely and effectively.
