Balanced Well

Inspiring classes to keep your body moving, grooving & feeling good!

There are 4 components that make up a physical body program that is Balanced Well. Strength training, cardiovascular training, core training to build a solid foundation to do all of that movement from, and release work, for all the stress we put on our bodies through inactivity, as well as through our exercise and play. In building a program to support a well balanced body, I have included all 4 of these components for you:

~ Postural Therapy, Release work and Stretching

~ Functional Core work & Pilates

~ H.I.I.T. workouts (high intensity interval training) Beginner and Intermediate level

~ Foundational Strength Training

This course is designed to be completed with a few basic tools you can have at home and a bit of space to move. You do not need to go to the gym to do these workouts. You can build foundational strength, improve posture, unwind pain, and burn fat in the comfort of your own home with Nancy's expert guidance. Her attention to alignment, precision, and overall balance supports your body's health, vitality and ability to move, pain free and playfully!

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

Posture Therapy classes include components to decrease pain, and unwind tension and stress, allowing you to align your body with ease, improving joint mobility and function. We may use tennis balls, a foam roller, an exercise ball, a yoga strap (or any belt), and a mat. Although not all of this equipment is necessary for many of the classes.

Core Strength workouts will include a fusion of Pilates mat based workouts, lying, kneeling, sitting and standing. These are functional workouts to build the integrity of the entire core (core = everything from your neck to your pelvis), not just 30 minutes of different crunches. Often little to no equipment is necessary other than a mat, although I occasionally incorporate the exercise ball or foam roller.

High intensity Interval Training - H.I.I.T. workouts - are an efficient way to boost your metabolism, burn calories and build endurance in a very short amount of time. The workouts consist of a multiple intervals of high activity followed by shorter active rest phases. Ex. 40 sec work, 20 sec active rest, repeated for 15 exercises. This makes the workout time only about 15 min, yet super effective! Often no equipment is necessary aside from space and a mat, occasionally dumbbells are incorporated.

Strength Training workouts are focused on building muscle through resistance training. In these classes we will be using external resistance, i.e, dumbbells, exercise bands, etc. to provide additional resistance to promote muscle strengthening.

**Each individual class has a description telling you what tools are necessary to complete it. Often some of the equipment is indicated as optional. However, to get the most out of this program as a whole, some basic equipment would serve you well. A medium set of dumbbells, some tennis balls, a foam roller and if you have the space an appropriately sized exercise ball. The course descriptions give more specifics on that, but feel free to reach out if I can assist you in getting the right tools.
