They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but some of us “old dogs” are finding it almost necessary to at least trick ourselves into getting into a regular exercise routine. Whether you’re starting fresh to kick-start a healthy lifestyle (better late than never right?) or are finding that your body isn’t keeping up with the intense routine you were once used to, Gyrotonics could be your answer to a fun, balanced workout regime your body needs.
The hardest part of any work out is the beginning, that’s why Raritan Valley Gyrotonics in New Jersey, makes it our mission to provide a warm, friendly, welcoming environment. You won’t feel uncomfortable pressure of walking into a gym filled with fit, body-building – however you will walk out feeling so good, that you could lift with the best of them.
Regular physical activity can help prevent and reduce the symptoms of arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, certain types of cancer and a slew of other medical issues. While we do offer classes and encourage people of all ages and athletic abilities to give Gyrotonics a try, there are certain aspects of the exercise methods that are incredibly beneficial to the Baby Boomer generation.
Gyrotonics uses the principles of Intention, Stabilization, Decompression and Coordination to help increase mobility, flexibility and strength – which happen to be a few of the areas the Baby Boomer are apt to focus on. We pair the fundamental fitness elements of the Gyrotonic method with a fun environment so that classes fly by while you get a great work out in. Regular Gyrotonics and Gyrokinesis exercise can help increase the functional capacity of the spine, better your coordination, increase your overall strength, boost your flexibility and help you gain mobility in your joints in all directions. The exercises also have cardiovascular and circulation benefits because of the constant movement during classes.
With different classes and training sessions, you can choose the best option for you. Want the encouragement of others? Join one of our group Gyrotonic or Gyrokinesis classes. Want to learn the basics at your own pace? Sign up for a private session and get personalized attention to work on your “trouble-areas” and increase the intensity at a pace that feels right to you and your body. We put a high emphasis on using correct form and recognizing your body’s limitations, that way, whether you’re in a group class or private session, you stay injury-free while on your road to better health.
After a few sessions, you may end up feeling like a new, improved person! Chores and tasks around the house will seem easier, you won’t be as tired after running around with the grandchildren, and you’ll most likely even find yourself making healthier choices in all aspects of your life.
Committing to a fitness routine is one of the healthiest and most important decisions you can make – no matter what your age – and we want to be there to help you start that journey. What are you waiting for? Give us a call or book a class now, we’ll see you soon!
