The importance of cross training involves combining strength, endurance, flexibility, mobility and mindbody disciplines on a weekly schedule is a key component to avoiding a fitness plateau along with injury prevention. We as humans fall easily into a habit of doing the same routine and our bodies adapt and adjust to the comfort and ease over time. Also neglecting other areas of fitness can lead to injury and overuse.

If you think #Mobility and #Flexibility are the same, could be one of the reason you are stuck in the same range of motion with no results and possibility of an injury. Doing only #stretching for flexibility pre/post #workout will temporarily improve the length of a muscle, as the muscle will return to its original state and results will be temporary. Utilizing Mobility exercises and in particularly prior to exercising will be more effective because it is based on movement and control.

Your ability to actively move a joint through a range of motion is not only dictated by the mobility at the joint but by your central nervous system. The high intensity, low impact exercises that I integrate are an excellent method of improving muscle endurance across any age group. Incorporating #Barre, #Yoga, #Pilates, and #Bodyflow is one of the best ways to train and increase your #mobility and increase range of motion by actively contracting and stretching your muscles through various poses.

One of the most common fitness class misconceptions that I encounter is the notion that you have to be at a certain level of fitness or have some sort of expert knowledge or experience to join the class. This is so false! Fitness classes are designed to help you get fit, or maintain your level of physical fitness. There is no requirement that you need to possess a certain amount of skill to join a class, or that you have to ‘be good enough’ to take the class.

Since opening in August 2015, I’ve been asked numerous times if I have a drop-in rate for classes. Some of the reasons people give for desiring drop-in rates are that they want to try the class to see if they like it first (understandable) or that they’re too busy to regularly attend classes, which let’s face it, most people are overbooked these days.

The FIT LAB is a fitness facility that has been termed 'Boutique Fitness'.  Don't let the word boutique lead you to think the FIT LAB is all frilly and no sweat!  Quite the opposite is true. Our culture is one of comadarie, empowered training in several venues and all of it...even barre is a challenge.  Shaking quads will prove it. :)  All instructors carry national certs and live to give our clients a challenging workout.

Recently, I have been asked by several barre trainers why I do not believe in training participants to be in a forced arch with knees driven over the feet while pulsing rapidly for a lengthy period of time. I believe this position overly compromises the functionality of the body, thus creating a lot of risk for our participants. In this blog, I want to discuss how not to compromise your feet and knees while in a fitness barre class.

Last week, I attended the IDEA World Fitness Convention in Los Angeles. 12000 attendees from 50 countries – a world-wide event indeed. I have to credit IDEA with making me the trainer I am today. Being exposed to the best in the industry, learning the latest trends and getting inspired be presenters and fellow trainers brings out the best in us. My focus in this year’s conference was a mix of Barre and corrective exercise.

Given my love for ballet, it was only one logical step for me to look at a Barre certification course. And just at I had decided to look into it further, an opportunity for the very thing presented itself in Raleigh J. The stars were lining up.
