Fitness Start Up

Balance

   One of the most important components of Fitness is balance. Balance is both an ability and a description/assessment of functionality. That is, balance is theabilityto move with flow and control, even when moving on or through an uneven, unstable or unpredictable environment. Can you stay on your feet, can you move without losing your center of gravity, can you move efficiently without using excessive energy to remain steady and stable?
 
Balance is adescription or assessment in the sense that within your body there should be an equal or mostly equal level of strength/flexibility/relaxation/mobility in both sides of your body.

What is Pilates?

In the early 20th century, Joseph Pilates developed a unique system of exercise that has only recently become popular and well known. It was designed to bring about an increase in overall flexibility, full-body strength, movement coordination, balance and energy for daily activities.
 
There are two primary methods for working with Pilates: Mat Pilates and Reformer Pilates. Mat Pilates is usually a group activity which, as the name implies, takes place on a mat. There is a series of exercises which the group performs together, under the watchful eye of the instructor.

Start-ups: Studio and Body

My blog this week is about how I started up my new studio and how you can start up your new physical life.
 
I got down to the business of building my business on November 11, 2011. I found myself suddenly out of work and decided to make the move to self-employment and independance. This seems to me much like those of you who have recently found yourself in a similar physical place,feeling vulnerable and just generally "stuck" and going nowhere fast! Many of my clients start out experiencing low levels of fitness, with joints and muscles in chronic pain and no energy for daily life.
