"MOBILITY - STABILITY - ENDURANCE"
PilogaFit exercise class structure and process
The exercises are always safe, low impact but continuously core focused for the one hour.
You always progress at a level that suits you on the day. You choose your intensity.
Classes are therefore always suitable for complete beginners, with suggested adaptions.
This mixed ability approach, will help any age or ability, benefit from their comfort zone as capacity is deveoped.
The focus is on your core stablising muscles rather than gross movement.
It's all about mastering good technique, posture and movement.
It is definitely not about over stretching or pounding your joints/spine with harmful compression. Poor form promotes muscle and movement imbalances and injury. see Muscle imbalance.
So it's "Mobility, Stability, then Endurance" Following Dr Stuart McGill - Science based exercises.
Dynamic mobility warm up - 10 mimutes
Core exercise with individual adaptions - 40 minutes
Mobility cool downs - 10 minutes

New PilogaFit - Plus
Strength & Conditioning class - Starting soon
For those ready and wishing to progress their Core mobility, stability and endurance fitness to the next level of strength training. This is safe only when any issues of muscle imbalance, poor posture or inappropriate movement patterns have been corrected.
Exercises that involve both sides (bilateral) of the body at the same time, often result in "locking in" and reinforcement of muscular, posture and movement imbalances.
Here is a good quote from physical therapist Gray Cook -
"Never add strength to dysfunction."
Gray is disputing the poor idea that all one needs to do is work harder or get stronger and all of the problem areas will be corrected.
He's criticizing this harmful notion and tells you not to do it!
Often, simply getting stronger means your imbalances and dysfunctions will get worse!
You may be stronger, but at what price did that strength come?
The new class will focus more on the next McGill phase, building Core strength, only when good technique has been mastered.
Options will be available for individuals who may wish to choose more aerobic and high intensity interval training or working with appropriate kettlebells (weights). The HIIT components will be of short duration during the one hour class.
So within this class each participant chooses their own level of intensity/resistance with low impact.
Technique will still be paramount, as will safe exercise selection.
