We’re Not Doing This For Nothin’!!!

Being fit and strong is the best chance you’ve got…for health, happiness, and the energy to achieve whatever is close to your heart.

Mental toughness and self-discipline is learned through the body.  It’s a thickening-of-the-skin that comes with acclimatising to a little pain and discomfort.

The drive it takes to hold a plank to the designated time rubs off on other aspects of your life. You hang in there. You know you can take it. And just the knowing is a big advantage.

You’re not in this alone. That’s the good news.

The last class is July 23. So get them in before we  shut down for August. Personal training continues right through August unabated.

Ciao, Pietro

Going Deeper

The evolution of your workout eventually comes to this. It doesn’t matter what your entry point is.

You may start with cardio. Adding in a weight-lifting program, including squats for the lower body, bench press for the upper body.DSC_0271

Suddenly you realise, your abs are sadly neglected. That’s a whole other universe to explore.  And then you’re emphatically told about yoga, with all its blessings.

Then what? Eventually you come to the secondary muscles: Lats, Delts, Bis, Tris, Traps. You apply the chisel, sculpting your own body.  Rectifying your imbalances.

No ABS Class this Saturday. Yoga is a-go this Friday night with Ian. Please let me know if you can make it, or not. Heavy Lifting Tuesdays is business as usual.

Ciao, Pietro

Altering Your Perspective

Our Inversion Table has been modified to make it more comfortable on the ankles.

Being upside down is a strange sensation. You have to trust the spotter will bring you up immediately upon request. Otherwise, if your spotter is detracted or not paying attention, panic can set in quickly.

But once you get beyond the strangeness of it, and feel confidence in your spotter, you can explore the profound benefits this activity. You naturally start expanding the period time in this position.

Space is created all along the spinal column. You feel the decompression and realignment even after one brief moment. And, yes, regular practice does actually increase your height rather significantly. And all that blood to the brain does wonders.

The Inversion table is in action tonight at yoga. Let us know if you can make it. Ciao, Pietro

A Position Of Strength

You’re body is always trying to tell you something. Your personal trainer is there to help you listen , interpret the message, and negotiate a pathway forward.

Do nothing, or not enough, your issues become chronic. Yes, it takes work, commitment. The return is a second life. Longevity, vitality. Getting to experience life’s vicissitudes with your grandkids.

Survival and quality of life are reason enough . Because absolutely nothing is better at combating disease than regular exercise. And I’m not the only one who believes this.

Not to mention just looking good.

Come see Ian tonight at yoga! Ciao, Pietro

Creating The Upside-down Habit

It quite literally makes you taller if you use the inversion table regularly. And substantially so.  Decompress the spine. Improve alignment. Assist the bursa by flipping the impact of gravity.

The inversion table is just one of many posture at Yogic Stretching Drills. We favour long extended pleasurable stretches.   It’s Friday night, after all. These lengthier stretches not only feel good but powerfully affective.

See you tonight at Panacea Studio, 730 pm.  Sat Abs and Heavy Lifting Tuesday.

 

Ciao, Pietro
