Whether you want build muscle and lose fat or improve muscle imbalances and rehabilitate existing injuries, studies have shown that when you work out for too long, your cortisol levels go up especially if you are already stressed. Cortisol is destructive to muscle tissue. Keeping workouts short and intense, prevents excessive cortisol release (which begins to happen after about 40 minutes). 30 minute training sessions mean less wear and tear and quicker recovery time, giving you the best gains in a shorter amount of time.
This type of training is meant to induce a body transformation of some kind. This can include, but is not limited to, fat loss, muscle or lean body mass gain, increased flexibility, increased explosiveness or improved strength.
Using chin-up bars, resistance bands, sandbags, yoga blocks, plyo boxes and rings, The Strength Team will safely take you through movement in a progressive manner to achieve goals you never thought possible. We will also address nutritional and mindset barriers that could be holding you back.
“I am 59 years old and I never thought I was strong. I can now dead lift 200lbs! Pretty awesome for almost 60. I can now also do various forms of pull-up assisted which is something I would have never tried. This strength allows me to carry my twin granddaughters at the same time in each arm; something my own daughter cannot even do!” –Isabelle Z.
“With the Team’s guidance I have been able to consistently release fat at will and put on muscle quickly. They have helped me shed 30+ pounds in 3-4 months in the past. I have now gained 13lbs pounds in 7 weeks while keeping my body fat very stable” –Mitch C.
“Michelle literally changed my life. She introduced me to an entirely new way of thinking about fitness and nutrition. I had tried numerous times in the past to lose weight but it wasn’t until I met Michelle that I was able to adopt a completely different lifestyle. She gave me the tools and provided me with the knowledge to become a healthy, fit woman. I now love strength training, feel strong and appreciate her ongoing nutritional guidance. Working with Michelle has not only made me feel like a new person on the outside, but just as importantly, on the inside too.” –Elana T.
This type of training is geared towards improving muscle imbalances and injuries that can cause weakness, discomfort, chronic pain and/or decreased performance. The integrated team at Yoga Space works together to get you out of discomfort, right imbalances and restore health and function.
“In 3 weeks I went from not being able to get up into wheel without assistance and a bolster to being able to do it on my own bolster free! An old injury and shoulder weakness had kept me from doing this.” –Lynn M.
“When I first started strength training I was two years out from a hip replacement and I showed up to our first session cane in hand. My trainer looked at me and said ‘let’s get you free of that shall we?’ 5 weeks later it is collecting dust and I can now squat below 90 degrees without pain. A huge plus is I am now able to run multiple errands in a day with energy to spare at 72. I used to be exhausted after one!” –Anne B
“I had chronic pain in my right glute which I was told was sciatica. It was painful when I walked, drove, exercised, basically when I moved. It was very frustrating because it felt like a constant tooth ache…literally a BIG pain in the butt! After my second visit with Michelle I had an 80% improvement and was almost pain-free. Although I have the occasional flare-up, subsequent treatments help keep them at bay and I am pain-free most of the time. I can now walk for longer and do exercises I had once avoided. I highly recommend her. She knows her stuff and her interpersonal skills are second to none. I consider myself blessed for finding her” –Margaret C.
The Health Assessment is a wonderful tool to identify where you stand in terms of optimal health. Using common, scientific measurements, the Strength Team at Yoga Space can show you where you are doing great and where you might want to turn your attention. This test can help identify potential factors that, if left unchecked, could diminish your health in time. On the flip side, by catching them early you remain one step ahead and can take your health into your own hands.
