Stabilization & Balance Training... A Step Above Ordinary Core Training!
Stabilization training can be defined as specific training that addresses the stabilizing system of the body known primarily as the CORE. The CORE is the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex that also includes the thoracic and cervical spine. At DESIGNER BODIES we also focus on the integrity of the shoulder/neck complex as well as the knee/ankle complexes for maintaining proper balance throughout the entire kinetic-chain. You will learn to train your body from the inside out to insure structural, postural and biomechanical efficiency. It is functionally important to be core and stabilizer strong for fitness training, sports performance, occupational fitness and living healthy as we attempt to age gracefully.
Cardio-Respiratory Performance & Muscular Endurance Training
You will be taught how to perform cardio that is specific to your personal goals. If you are an endurance athlete and are eating like an endurance athlete you will be challenged to train at intensity levels that increase aerobic capacity and improve muscular endurance. If your goal is to lose body fat and you are eating to lose body fat then you will be taught how to burn body fat, increase aerobic capacity and improve cardiovascular health by utilizing scientifically based training methods that work efficiently. Many fat loss programs utilize a shock and awe approach to cardio combined with a low calorie diet. Truth be told it doesn't really take hours of cardio to lose unwanted body fat if your nutritional approach is sound. Losing body fat comes from a combined effort of what you eat, how you eat and how much you eat coupled with consistent muscular development and strength training sessions. Cardio definitely has its place as a stimulus in your fat burning efforts when performed correctly. Unfortunately many people including personal trainers believe that you can force body fat loss by performing more sessions and/or increased durations of cardio exercise but in most cases the body recognizes this approach as chronic stress thereby causing the metabolism to burn less calories in response to diet and exercise. We have invested thousands of dollars in biomedical testing equipment that will prove this approach not only wrong but detrimental to ones overall health.
Flexibility Training... Muscle Extensibility & Joint Mobility
There is nothing worse than stiff achy muscles to block energy and to make you feel weak and lethargic. You will increase energy and decrease stress by utilizing cutting edge training techniques for restoring flexibility, muscle quality, neuromuscular efficiency, improved blood flow and joint mobility while enjoying the functional benefits of a well balanced body that has the freedom to move efficiently. Our approach to wellbeing through flexibility will also boost your metabolism above and beyond what you have ever imagined possible.
