TONE GROUP CLASS INFO
1.What is Engage?:
"Engage" - an introductory level class, designed for beginners, but also everyone who would like to focus on building strong foundations for other workouts. A slower pace of the class provides the opportunity to focus on proper form and correct execution of exercises. Here we will teach you how to engage your muscles to control your body and to get the highest quality of each movement.
Types of exercises you can learn in Engage class:
- Footwork - working your legs while lying comfortably on your back
- Core exercises in simple and safe seated and kneeling positions
- Upper body exercises, that you may know from the gym, e.g. triceps, biceps curls, rowing, chest fly, etc...
- Delicious stretches for tight hamstrings, hip flexors and chest muscles.
2. What is Tone?:
"Tone" - an intermediate class that requires previous experience in reformer workouts. Exercises are meant to challenge your strength, control, and stability. The flow of the class involves more core exercises than Engage class, which puts more emphasis on your postural muscles.
Exercises incorporated in Tone class:
- Challenging modifications of planks on a moving surface (aka "carriage"), to build strength from deep inside your core.
- Lots of lunges, squats, and demanding leg work.
- Twists and side bends, working the muscles you didn't know you have.
- Upper body exercises with the heaviest resistance you can handle, working your shoulders, chest and back muscles from the inside out.
3. What are private sessions?
Private sessions are conducted outside of the regular group class schedule. This type of training is perfect for someone who has never tried reformer before and would like to learn the proper use of the equipment and basic exercises.
It is also a great way to work on a particular goal in a more private setting. The entire program is accommodated to your goals and needs, and the instructor's focus lands 100% on you for the duration of each session, which means the effectiveness of private training is much higher than the group class.
