Be fit, look sexy, get FLEXI!
Have you lost your flexibility?
Our group and private classes are designed to improve general flexibility and range of motion in the hips and lower limbs, back and shoulders. Inspired from rhythmic gymnastics training our flexibility programs help you stay supple and toned as they focus on balancing each students' flexibility vs strength. Our Melbourne flexibility classes are a great challenge for beginner 'stretchers' and invaluable for dancers and athletes looking to improve their flexibility for their chosen performance or sporting discipline. After a thorough warm up, students will have a chance to work on their personal goals which might be as simple as touching their toes or as complex as a one handed walkover!
GETTING STARTED WITH 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.
