Experience the same dynamic programming of TAC’s Performance center in a new setting, BAREFOOT! Our feet are the base of support for our whole body. Strengthen the stabilizing muscles of your feet for stronger ankles, to improve balance, muscle alignment, and overall performance.
Muscular and aerobic endurance are the basis for any good fitness program, whether you're training for a marathon or want to be able to run around with your kids. Don't get the wrong impression, this doesn't mean long boring bouts of cardio. Your coaches will use unique combinations of movements and timing intervals to help you push your boundaries of endurance in a fun group environment.
We utilize kettlebells, dummbells, medicine balls, battle ropes, bands, and body weight movements in class to help you generate more strength and speed, which equates to power. Power movements require more muscles to work, which requires more energy, burns more calories, and most importantly gets results.
The workouts are different each and every day, but one common variable is intensity. The group environment allows you to get outside your comfort zone and push to a level of fitness you wouldn't be able to achieve working out alone. Your friends in class will help you push the envelope, while your coach keeps an eye on your form and makes sure you're working in safe positions.
Endurance, power, and intensity are not enough for a complete fitness program. You also need the coordination, balance, mobility, and stability to keep your body in the correct positions. In class you will work on unstable surfaces such as Bosu balls and exercise balls along with single leg and core movements to improve your overall coordination.
Class starts with a group mobility warm up, followed by an explanation of the workout format for that day and then a demonstration of the movements you will be performing. Once all that is out of the way, you have 40-45 minutes of good, hard training ahead of you.
The Coaches are there to help you learn the new movements, correct your form, and modify the workout in case you are nursing an injury or dealing with some nagging pain but still want to train.
