This is more my style….Working out with the ball was definitely a challenge for me. This was my first time doing pilates and boy was it a workout! I loved it……This class helped me to focus on balance and coordination which was great because I am uncoordinated at times. Haha! You are always using good body mechanics and it is so safe for your body.May del Rosario is a high energy instructor who really knows how to motivate you! Her enthusiasm and warm, welcoming personality make class FUN…..Pilates is great for toning up! It helps you to condition your core with slow, moderate movement with a fun, motivating teacher. Each week May will offer a different focus for class, to progressively teach you effective body mechanics. This class helps use isometrics for stabilization as well as your whole body for core balance on the ball. Pilates will increase your range of strength and mobility.She showed us how to get into positions and explained how it helps our body. She does give us alternatives if we aren’t able to get into the position which is equally beneficial but safer for you. At the end of class we focus on relaxing each part of our body and it’s nice to cool down too. It felt so good to move and stretch! I was energized when I left and am excited to attend my next class………Melaca Canela, President of the Sjögren’s & Lupus Foundation of Hawaii
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.
