Restore – Mobility & Stability | Movement Assessment

using bands for stretching

Restore – Wednesday @ 7pm

After a long week of intense training and high impact, our bodies can feel run down and beat up. Recovery is vital to our success in the gym. We can train hard and eat right, but if we are not taking care of our bodies we will never achieve our true performance potential.

Restore incorporates rolling & stretching techniques to free up overactive muscles while utilizing accessory exercises to activate and strengthen the small muscle groups that are commonly neglected. Each session will alternate between Upper Body (Shoulder/Thoracic) and lower body (Hip/Knee/Ankle) to introduce athletes to pre-hab and accessory pieces focused on those specific areas.  Our accessory exercises will include isometric holds, anti-rotational movements and single arm/single leg work. This class is perfect for those who realize the importance of these activities, but may need a little accountability to add them into their weekly routine!

Classes are to run on Wednesday nights at 7pm weekly.  Sign up required through ZenPlanner.
