May’s Bodyweight Personal Training program makes you proficient at using the one thing that you are never without: Your body. The workouts can be done anywhere, anytime, and without costly gym equipment.
Attention all Golden Circle Members and all 14-Day Golden Circle Membership Experience pass holders:
You are eligible to receive a free 15 minute fitness consultation with May. Discuss with May where you are now, and where you want to go in terms of your conditioning and wellbeing. Please make an appointment at the reception desk.
As we go through our daily tasks, we need to lift, turn, bend, squat, move sideways, etc., to accomplish what we want to do. This functional workout replicates daily movement in a safer, stronger, more efficient manner than we normally do.
Bodyweight exercises incorporate many of your body’s muscles at once. These exercises have the added benefit of being much more demanding of core strength (6-pack anyone?) than exercises that require weights and machines. Bodyweight conditioning keeps you safe from many chronic injuries, such as joint problems, that may arise over time with weightlifting and other unnatural exercises with little functional value to our daily lives.
With Bodyweight Personal Training, you will develop greater strength, power, muscular and cardiovascular endurance, speed, balance, coordination, and flexibility. With consistency, combined with a good diet, this progressive program will reward you with continuous results, increased body control, and new levels of achievement.
