A Whole Body Workout.
Let’s be honest. The number one reason people get started on a fitness program is to look better. There’s nothing wrong with that, but fitness is so much more than looking good. Strength, posture, mobility, and body awareness are all aspects of fitness. A well-designed fitness program should help you to hold your body better, move better, and even breathe better.
Many people going to the gym these days get stuck doing the same six exercises: lunges, planks, burpees, squats, crunches, and maybe a couple others. We have lots of new and creative exercises for you. The "Locomotives", the "Barrel Rolls", the "Six Shooters", and more. Each of our exercises is based on a different movement pattern, and each will activate your muscles in a different way.
Our two most popular classes have been the "Pump" and the "Nice N' Easy" classes. As the name suggests, Pump is the more challenging. There is more core and weightlifting. Nice N' Easy is a gentle mix of exercises. When we first introduced Nice N' Easy, we were told that nobody wants to go to a fitness class called Nice N' Easy. They were wrong. Sometimes when you've had a hard day at work or chasing the kids, a Nice N' Easy class is just what the doctor ordered.
This studio has just moved to NE Portland from Davis, California, and is scheduled to open in the Spring of '16, and while are launching, we will be offering some great discounts on classes. So now is the time to give this program a try.
Nothing extreme, just sensible exercise.
"Extreme" is the buzz word of the day in fitness. Lots of people rave about their extreme programs, but other people have learned the hard way that these approaches to fitness come with a high risk of injury. We want you to leave our classes feeling better than when you came in.
We make strength training fun.
As we get older, we lose muscle. There is no getting around it, the best way to stay strong and maintain your muscle base is to work with weights. Our classes make weightlifting fun.
Movement, not positions.
Yoga is loved by millions of people. If you are one of these people, then great! However, for other people the bending and twisting of some Yoga positions can be uncomfortable. If this is your experience, then we encourage you to listen to what your body is telling you. Our program focuses on movements rather than positions, which we have found is a more appropriate fitness strategy for some bodies.
