Mat Pilates with Megan
Mat Pilates is a strengthening and lengthening form of exercise that focuses on your core (trunk) muscles while also training your arms and legs. Mat Pilates is based on the original exercises Joseph Pilates developed. Mat Pilates can be modified for any age body, or fitness level.
Mat Pilates is a mind, body, and spirit practice with benefits that include improved posture, better coordination and balance, increased lung capacity, improved concentration and focus, increased body awareness, stress management, and injury prevention.
Strength Training with Debra
No matter where you are in your fitness journey, strength training—which involves some type of resistance to challenge and build your muscles—should be a key component of your workouts.
We will focus on:
- Chest: chest press, push-ups
- Shoulders: overhead press, lateral raise, front raise
- Biceps: bicep curls, hammer curls, concentration curls
- Triceps: triceps extensions, kickbacks
- Back: one-arm row, back extensions
- Abdominals: crunches, reverse crunches, wood chops, pelvic tilts
- Lower Body: squats. lunges, deadlifts, calf raises
Spinning with Debra
Spinning: Good for the heart and muscles, gentle on joints!
A class typically lasts 45 minutes to an hour and is led by an instructor who guides everyone through a series of heart-pumping workouts. For instance, you might do speed work, where you pedal fast for brief periods followed by periods of rest and recovery. You also may do incline workouts, where you increase the resistance so it feels like you are cycling uphill.
If you haven’t tried spinning — or are looking for a way to liven up your exercise routine — you should give it a whirl, as it offers a wide range of benefits for people of all ages and fitness levels.
