What is Essentrics?
|My Essentrics Class|
I've been taking an Essentrics TM class at Studio L for almost two months. That's me the first night on the right side of the photo.
Kim, the instructor is joy to take classes with. She's always smiling even when I have an, "Are you serious?" look on my face. I have those often. I do what she says though and I can say I am toning up fast.
I'm also crawling to my car when class is over. And yet I go back week after week.
The workout is not hard, it doesn't seem like you could be burning a zillion calories until you must get off the mat at the end of the class.
So how did I find out about this class? See the person in the yellow shirt? That's my friend, Illonka. She sent me a link to a dealsaver coupon to try the class with her. Then she managed to get a stress fracture in her foot. She does a lot--running, zumba, this class and she's a pharmacist. I can't wait until she's better and comes back to class.
People ask me all the time what is Essentrics TM? I could never come up with a good answer so I went o their website.
If you go to the website this is what is says:
Essentrics dynamically stretches and strengthens every muscle in the body, rebalancing the muscular structure in continuous rotational movements. The unique flowing movements of the Essentrics™ program have been proven to simultaneously slenderize and tone the abs, waist, and back with simple yet powerful Essentrics™ strengthening exercises. This is a full-body flexibility technique that works through the muscle chains liberating, relieving from tension and empowering the muscles in the process.
I think that's a good explanation. Spending so much time on the computer I need to be relieved of tension in my neck, shoulders and arms.
