I recently had the opportunity to try a Tabata class and it KILLED me, but I loved it. It was an intense workout that included sprints, jumping jack, burpees, bear crawls, inchworm planks, and TRX.

"Strength training" has come to be synonymous with Crossfit, powerlifting and Olympic lifting, which can be highly intimidating to those of us who are wanting to stay healthy, but have no prior experience in the previous matters. However, functional strength training is vital for injury prevention, despite fitness level, and can be scaled for everyone. Our bodies are pretty incredible.

No SEDENTARY is! Dr. James Levine, director of the Mayo Clinic at Arizona State University, coined the phrase “Sitting is the new smoking”. Studies have correlated chronic sitting with an "increased risk for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, kidney disease in women colon cancer in men, numerous chronic issues related to obesity, and death."

The qualities that make up our goals can usually be found in building muscular strength, muscular size, speed, endurance, altering body composition, and weight loss/gain (i.e. a wrestler cutting weight). The key difference in pursuing these goals is in the vastly different paths it takes to reach them. [...]

(Strength Coach Jonathan Meade, exercise: deadlift) Hit the Weights this Winter to Boost Your Cycling Performance Next Season! The 2017 cycling season is winding down, and as the days grow shorter many cyclists unfortunately resign themselves to the trainer or the couch. Cold dark mornings and early sunsets do not lend themselves to weekday rides, and many cyclists lose fitness and gain weight over the winter months.

Moving Better // Redcord x Pilates

2020-04-07T11:35:20-04:00October 4th, 2017|Redcord Neurac, Pilates, Physical Therapy|

How do we Integrate Pilates and Redcord to Help Patients Move Better? Two exercise modalities offered at One on One are Redcord and Pilates. Both can be enormously beneficial to patients in rehabilitation, transitioning to fitness, and in maintaining strength and preventing injury or re-injury. Not only do these two modalities enhance rehabilitation and fitness alone, but they also compliment each other. When we get injured, compensatory patterns of movement and muscle engagement take hold. Often those patterns persist for [...]

Recovery Meets Physical Therapy – Managing Tennis Injuries with a Physical Therapist Tennis, like many other sports, has an inherent risk for injury.
