Restore normal.At its core, the point of going to the gym is not just to become leaner or stronger, but also to restore normal, baseline physiological function, and to move through all ages of life effortlessly. After all, greater mobility gives you a foundation on which to build better strength and superior athleticism, while insulating yourself from injury. All of which you want.
Yoga - Drop In and Restore
Yoga does more than burn calories and tone muscles. It’s a total mind-body workout that combines strengthening and stretching poses with deep breathing and meditation or relaxation. You will increase body awareness, learn to move better and properly align yourself as you strengthen and lengthen your body at the same time. Besides the great physical benefits, there’s also a huge mental component that promotes emotional steadiness, increased focus, and stress release.
Yoga challenges you to disregard external stimulus in order to stay focused at the task of each pose, which is also why it serves as a beautiful daily practice to ground yourself and recharge.
Functional Range Conditioning (FRC)
Improve your body control and mobility with FRC. The goal of FRC is to train passive ranges of motion and make them active and therefore usable. This in turn enhances the load bearing capacity of a joint and its ability to withstand the forces of everyday activity and sport which then can up-level your range of motion and ultimately your lifts.
FRC was created by Dr. Andreo Spina and is quickly growing in popularity due to its effectiveness in training mobility of the human body using scientific methods to the acquisition and maintenance of functional mobility, articular resilience, and articular health and longevity.
