Flexibility at Any Age

Flexibility is possible…at any age! Some of the most frequent questions we hear from new students are in reference to flexibility.  Everyone wants to be as flexy as possible as quickly as they can so they can get in to all of the fun new moves they’ve seen on the internet.  Just like it takes time to build your strength so that you can do new moves safely, it takes time & patience to improve your range of motion in a healthy manner.  Trying to force yourself into stretches improperly can lead to hypermobility rather than flexibility.

Instructional Variety: The Spice of Training

By now you should be making great strides or, if you are like the vast majority, they’ve already been completely abandoned.  While that may sound a bit harsh, it’s true. Statistics show that the majority of resolutions never make it past the first quarter of the year…especially fitness related resolutions. Why is that?  The most common answer is LIFE.  Life happens. We get busy & things just fall by the wayside.  Most of us are already […]

4 Year Anniversary Showcase

On Saturday, November 12th we had our four year anniversary showcase, and to make it even more fun, we had a 70s theme! Our students loved the theme and ran with it, dancing to music that ranged from “I Will Survive” to “Bad Company” to “Dancing Queen”! We loved all the neon colored costumes, and even a wig and gold accents from our guest performer, Sabrina Madsen! Check out all of the videos from the evening HERE! Our next showcase will be in the spring and we can’t wait to see what our students bring to the table!
