The 30-day fitness challenge is about to start!

Your challenge is to do one workout everyday for 30 days! Depending on your fitness level, you can do a classical stretch and strengthening class, or an Essentrics Fitness Class. You can also mix it up and add a brisk walk, a beginner weight training session (with a trainer, of course!) or just do Essentrics for 30 days. It’s all up to you! Be sure to get your doctor’s permission if you’re starting out on your fitness journey. As long as you choose the exercise that is right for you!

No sign-up is necessary! Just come back weekly, join our community or visit our Facebook page. Read More

How music helps stretching

music-helps-with-stretching-fitness

There’s no drama here. Music will help you stretch.

The playlist for an Essentrics Fitness Program is one that does not emphasize grand sweeping phrases or emotional stories in the songs. The music is not another layer on top of the stretch and strengthening exercise; instead, the selected music is chosen to inspire and motivate you to stretch further and deeper and to keep you motivated while in class.

You’ll hear sounds from multi-cultural, easy jazz, country, contemporary to light classical. For a one-hour Essentrics workout, you’ll enjoy a wide variety of music to help you connect with your body, move with the flow of Essentrics so you can relax, stretch and elongate your muscles. Read More
