As we get older, doesn’t it feel like we wake up one day and suddenly our bodies are creaky and our joints don’t move like they used to?
If you are like me, this seems to happens overnight. But in reality, that is the aging process. As we get older the saying – “use it or lose it” – is so very true. The less that we move our joints and muscles, the more stiff they will become and the less range of motion the joints and muscles in our bodies will have!
The good news is that we can rid ourselves of much of this stiffness and creakiness with a little extra attention. And we are excited to announce new fitness solutions that do just that.
Our new Mobility and Movement solutions are designed to help you move with more ease, less stiffness, and fewer aches and pains. You will be purposely and thoughtfully moving your body through its natural range of motion promotes better health and well-being. So you can age less as you age!
Functional Movement Screening
Move better and reduce your risk of injury by scheduling a Functional Movement Screen.
A Functional Movement Screen is a great way to identify movement patterns that might increase your risk of injury in sport and in exercise. Your screen will result in a series of recommended exercises that will improve how you move – whether when working out or just moving in life. These exercises can easily be incorporated into your existing personal training sessions. Or you can schedule sessions devoted to improving your weak areas.
Active Isolated Stretching
How about relieving muscle tension and restore healthy movement in your joints? Schedule an Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) session.
Relaxing and healing! Those two words describe an AIS session. Or, as one of our clients with arthritic knees exclaimed, “This is amazing. I feel so good!” Being stretched by an AIS practitioner is gentle on the body. It not only lengthens tight muscles, but AIS also releases the deeply held tension that can inhibit our full range of motion and cause aches and pains. I just had a session on my hips – and they felt instantly better.
Mobility Training Sessions
Train your body to move with less stiffness and more ease! Sign up for mobility training sessions!
When you work mobility with Strand Fitness, your personal trainer will develop a plan to enhance your body’s range of motion. And then they will lead you through a program that combines stretching, low impact movement, and/or tension release. The use of tools such as our ballet barre, foam rollers and yoga straps will help target the key muscles and joints that support healthy and strong movement.
Enjoy the mobility and well-being benefits of yoga without the intimidation of keeping up with a fitness class!
At Strand Fitness, your personal yoga sessions will be tailored and paced according to your experience level and your mobility goals. Practice yoga individually, with a partner, or in a small group of your friends. Stretch, breathe and meditate your way to enhanced mobility and well-being! It’s a perfect combination for those of us with some tenure with the calendar!
