We definitely invite, but never force, our clients to remove their shoes and enjoy their sessions with feet bared because of the additional strength they will receive. The feet are so important when it comes to how the body moves that we want to provide an environment for our clients to be fully aware and engaged with their mind & body for a stimulating experience!
What you might see as only a sandbag we see as a fitness tool. And our tools have very specific, functional purposes to them. Just like you wouldn’t use a hammer when a screwdriver is needed. Depending on the individual and the goal for a given exercise you will see the right tool from our fitness toolbox being used for the right job.
Where most fitness programs are geared towards muscle strength – isolating a particular body part for an individual muscle response. We focus our attention on training the body the way it was designed to move: everything working together. So our training is integrative, strengthening your movement patterns, which in turn, will also strengthen the individual muscles, but everything else, too – ligaments, tendons, fascia, and the brain! This is movement strength.
If losing weight is your goal, then it is our goal, as well! However, we never put the cart before the horse and understand weight loss happens more in the kitchen that it does in the gym. Our goal is to seal up energy leaks you may have that is affecting your ability to do the daily activities your life requires. And as a result of our integrative approach to strength training, you will discover how you are starting to see muscles that you may not have seen in a long time and how your clothes are fitting looser than they did when you started your journey with us at Fitness Lying Down!
