Athletic Stretch

Athletic Stretch

You do not need to be an athlete to join this class but it is structured for the person who doesn’t stretch as much as they should; sometimes sweaty, sometimes soothing. We will use the barre, bands, balls, walls, as well as some modified Japanese yoga moves, and Essentrics to lengthen muscles around the joints. Bring your sense of humor because this is always a fun class.

The purpose of this program is to stretch, strengthen and re-balance the full muscular structure, leaving you more flexible and agile. Hundreds of professional athletes including NHL players have adopted this workout and experienced better performance, fewer injuries and faster recovery by preparing the muscles and tendons to withstand unexpected twists, turns and stresses of sports and everyday life.

In most flexibility programs, the emphasis is on passive stretching. Although passive stretching feels good at the time, the moment you move, your muscles re-contract to their starting point, leaving you as tight as prior to a passive-stretching workout. You will maintain flexibility while increasing your strength. Like everything worth having, flexibility takes time to achieve. It is unrealistic to expect a change in your overall flexibility in a short period of time but to consider adding in another stretch class in the week or maintain a program at home.
