Why Strength Training?

When properly performed, strength training can provide significant functional benefits and improvement in overall health and well-being.  We specialize in a unique method of training called Steady-Pace®.  It is a slow-motion technique which removes momentum from the movement, allowing for a higher neuromuscular engagement than other methods, while keeping your joints safe.

 

What strength training is doing for those living with MS is reversing atrophy directly (or indirectly) caused by functional inactivity in one's lifestyle due to symptoms/lesions.  Strength training won't fix lesions, but it can strengthen the muscles around (or affected by) the lesions which can allow for symptoms to have less of an effect upon the individual due to the increased muscular strength throughout the body.

How is strength training going to help me walk better?

With strength training, the goal is to target the atrophied muscles around the lesions.  Poor mobility can be caused by weak hip flexors, quadriceps, posterior chain, and/or foot drop. 

 

When you apply consistent and effort-lead exercise to these muscle groups, you will eventually prompt the body to increase muscular strength to the areas being worked.  This will lead to having more control over your lower body.   Strengeth training will not cure foot drop, but it can increase the capacity to lift the foot and flex the ankle which means you're not tripping as much (or at all).  Having a stronger lower body can mean you're not having to think as much (or at all) about every step you take, you can walk or stand more fluidly and fatigue less quickly.  You will have more functionality and control over your balance and coordination.

Where do I begin once I become a member?

After you've signed up, we will send your Starter Exercise Kit in the mail, as well as your login information for your Online Progress Journal.  To make getting started as guided and easy as possible we have created the New Member Orientation.  It is 4-week exercise and education course that will allow you to start exercising immediately (even before your Starter Kit comes in the mail).  It teaches you EVERYTHING you need to know when it comes to strength training with MS and will get you ready for all of programming and many features that MS Workouts has to offer.  The more you learn from this course the better you will be at maximizing your results during our weekly-updated exercise classes!

Do you have exercises for

those who use a wheelchair?

Yes!  MS Workouts meets you where you're at.  We have an entire weekly-updated exercise class that targets your entire body all from a seated position.

If you are planning on exercising from your wheelchair, we will send you an extra theraband and carabiners so you can anchor the therabands to the wheels and create resistance.

I am scared that I won't be able

to do any of these exercises.

Our program accommodates the entire spectrum of MS.  You will do fine as long as you show up to each session and bring your effort!  Strength training is always hardest and most daunting in the beginning because you and your body are not used to it.  Don't trick yourself into thinking it's too much for you to handle.  We have helped tens of thousands of people just like you obtain life-changing results.  It's your turn. 

How often and for how long should I exercise each week?

Since strength training is high-intensity, it means your sessions are short and you don't have to do it that often.  We recommend working out 2-3x a week, with at least one day of rest in between.  Each class is around 30 minutes long (with rest periods between each exercise).  We also encourage you to perform our static stretching routines after each class (you will enjoy that part).

Do you have exercises for

those who use a walker?

Yes! Some members who use a walker choose to use the Standing Exercise Class and other choose to use the Seated Exercise Class.  You can choose which one works best for your level of mobility and comfortability.

It's difficult for me to stay motivated towards exercise!

And you're not alone.  It takes work to make exercise a regular part of your routine, especially when just starting out.  We have several ways of helping you stay accountable toward exercise, including our friendly Members-Only Facebook community where you can workout alongside other members who are motivating, inspiring, and supporting each other.

Can I try this for free before I join the membership?

 . . . sigh . . . yeah.

How much is a membership?

Strength training differs from other forms of exercise in that you do not (and should not) do it every day.  You should only strength train 2-3x a week, with at least one day of rest in between.  Each basic exercise session 30 minutes long with rest periods between each workout.  

Getting started easy!  Once you join, send us your shipping address so we can send your Starter Kit!
