The Most Effective Strengthening Technique for
Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis
The Steady-Pace® technique was developed Practical Fitness studios in Austin and Plano, TX. After a successful trial run performing the Steady-Pace® technique with participants from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Practical Fitness Studios teamed up with Tina Warring, Director of Physical Therapy at the Central Texas Neurology Consultants. Together, we created MSWorkouts.com, an online exercise program designed exclusively for targeting symptoms relating to MS. Since then, MS Workouts has been helping people across the globe gain better balance, combat foot drop, and increase their strength - all through the MS Workouts on-demand membership platform.
The science-based strengthening technique we've developed called Steady-Pace® is the most effective way to strength train while living with Multiple Sclerosis. By slowing down your movement, we keep your body and joints safe from injury while at the same time engaging your neuromuscular system at a much more meaningful level than traditional exercise. Since Steady-Pace® is a high-intensity and low-impact technique, you will achieve great results by exercising for one hour a week.
Strength training can help you:
- Improve Mobility and Balance
- Control & Alleviate Foot Drop
- Boost Energy
- Lose Weight
- Increase Stamina

Foot Drop Exercise Class
Raymond - "After 2 days, I am noticing an improvement in my gait."
Foot drop, is the inability to lift the front part of the foot due to weakness or paralysis of the muscles in the lower limb. Consequently, individuals living with foot drop have to lift their entire lower limb higher in order to avoid dragging and scuffing their feet on their ground. In some instances, foot drop can affect one foot or both feet. There are several conditions that cause foot drop, but it is a common symptom of neurodegenerative diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, stroke and cerebral palsy.
The Foot Drop Exercise Class is the perfect place for you to combat foot drop. In the class we've hybridized the Steady-Pace® technique with exercises designed by Tina Warring, Director of Physical Therapy at the Central Texas Neurology Consultants. This class will effectively strengthen the muscles around your foot and ankle, improving joint control and gait. The results for many of our clients has been astounding. We've seen improvements in gait in just a few days and overall increase in control of the dropping of the foot.
To sum it all up, our members are falling less, walking with more confidence, and are actively building more strength around their foot to keep it from dropping.
Classes for Improving Mobility & Balance
The Mobility Exercise Class was created to keep you on your feet, independent and moving. This class has several exercises that work on strengthening the muscles in your lower body. By having stronger calves, hamstrings, quads, glutes, spinae erectors, and core, -- you will be able to walk longer with better stability and balance, because you'll have higher capacity for control.
The Mobility (Lite) Exercise Class was developed as an entry point for those who who spend most of their time in a wheelchair or walker. Each exercise is performed from a seated position. Every movement is designed to add strength to your lower body. The ultimate goal of this class is to add enough strength and coordination, to which you can slowly move into the Mobility Exercise Class - to further improve your mobility.
With over 30+ years of combined experience, your team
has worked with thousands of individuals living with MS.
