High-Intensity Training

Kettlebell

Whole-body movement exercises that deliver cardio, strength, and flexibility benefits in a short amount of time and can be beneficial for anyone, no matter the level of fitness. Kettlebells come in a range of off-centered weights, and a workout includes different movements such as the deadlift, swing, clean and press, and snatch. Each of these movements are multi-joint and multi-muscle exercises that build strength, improve flexibility and burn fat and calories. Kettlebell movements are highly beneficial for the tendons and ligaments, resulting in stronger joints that may be less susceptible to injury.

MELT

Based on the “MELT Method” Program. A form of self-therapy. Manipulating the body’s connective tissue is believed to release trapped stress and restore the body’s natural elasticity, which in turn eliminates pain.
The Weekly MELT classes are a great way to deepen your MELT practice.

Pilates

STOTT Pilates Reformer Training is a contemporary approach to the original teaching of Joseph Pilates. It is the optimal way to achieve strength, flexibility, and proper body alignment. The central concept is strengthening the core of the body – deep abdominals, hips, upper & lower back and the muscles around the spine. Whether you are working with a personal trainer, or in a small group class setting, the aim of STOTT Pilates remains the same: optimal musculoskeletal performance – strength, flexibility, and endurance – without risking injury or building bulk. With a focus on core stability, including pelvic and shoulder girdle stabilization, neutral alignment and breathing, STOTT Pilates also helps restore the natural curves of the spine, relieve tension and enhance self-confidence. The result: a balanced and aligned body that looks fit, feels revitalized and moves with ease – important goals whether you are a beginner, rehabbing, or an elite athlete.
