WEEK 7 - STICKING WITH EXERCISE
WEEK #7 BONUS CHALLENGE: Make a post answering this question: Who are you exercising for? Is it for yourself or for someone else who motivates you
WEEK #7 AGENDA: Focusing on Form and Technique. Last exercise class designed for Mobility.
WEEK #7 GOALS: This will be the last time you will be performing many of these exercises. Eat quality nutrients, get plenty of high-quality sleep and try to focus on getting the best times for each! Perform all the exercises 2-3 times this week and record your results.
SAFETY TIPS: Keep a fan on you. Turn down your A/C to 68 degrees or COLD. Keep your hair off your neck. Remove any sharp corners or tables from your exercise area. Drink ice cold water between every exercise. Make sure to continue to breathe during the exercise, continue to remind yourself not to hold your breath.
Her Experience in Our Studios!
Olivia started training at our studios in Austin, TX back in 2016. When we first met her she told us that she was diagnosed with MS and that she wanted to have more strength and energy to live her life. We took on the challenge and put her through the steady-pace technique. Almost two years later Olivia is still with us - still performing the technique in our studios. In fact - she recently filmed a few exercise videos with us that will soon be available for our members!
"Now that I've adapted to the technique (steady-pace) I feel transformed. I feel like a different person. I have so much energy. I feel like I can go out and do the things I want to do. I'm so much more spontaneous. My husband and I go to the movies, we go out of town and just doing all these things we didn't get to do for a year and a half when I was feeling really, really sick. So it really has changed everything."
