Melbourne Flexibility Training


Flexibility training is an important component of physical fitness for everyday active people as well as athletes and performers. Guidelines for a flexibility training program suggest stretching with a minimum frequency of three days per week. Flexibility training offers athletes, professional and amateur alike, the ability to improve their performance through increased range of motion and decreased injury risk.

Getting Started with Flexibility Training

If you are looking for a Melbourne fitness and flexibility training program, Limber Sports Performance offers a trio of different classes.

The Stretch class, instructed by Lauren Skopal and her team provides a great introduction to flexibility training. This training session is designed to improve general flexibility and range of motion in the hips and lower limbs, back and shoulders. A combination of passive, dynamic and P&F (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) stretching is used in conjunction with core strength and stability exercises. Super-splits, plyometric jump training and floor acrobatics are also included for advanced clients. We also have a male stretching class specifically to target the needs of male athletes.

The Hula Fit class is a new fun way to stay in shape. This two hour class is a complete workout including stretching and conditioning of the abs and arms. As you progress with your hula hoop skills it will also improve your coordination and cardio fitness. If you don't believe us try keeping 3 hoops going at once! Each week you will improve your hula hooping technique and learn different hoop manipulation tricks as well as improving your flexibility and toning that stomach. No experience necessary, come and give it a whirl!

Flexibility Training for Dancers & Professional Performers

Instructed by Viktoriya Titova, the Russian Floor Barre class is a perfect choice of flexibility training for dancers looking to improve their movement, posture, tone and range of movement. This one hour class will take you through a series of ballet exercises performed on the floor, taken by our expert teacher and former Principal Dancer (Kiev Ballet) Viktoriya. The flexibility training exercises are typically gentle and controlled yet challenging as you have to coordinate the movement of your limbs while also stabilising the rest of your body in correct alignment. If you persist with this form of training, you can shape your body to perfection. Russian Floor Barre comes highly recommended by Lauren, who undertakes the class twice per week to stay in condition for performing. This class requires a certain level of dance experience and commitment so contact us for more information.
