Frequently asked questions
What kind of Classes do we teach at MOVE//West?
Essentrics is a full body workout that rapidly changes the shape of your body through a dynamic combination of strengthening and stretching. The technique develops lean, strong and flexible muscles with immediate changes to your posture. Perfect for men and women of all fitness levels, this program rebalances the body, prevents and treats injuries and unlocks tight joints. With a diverse music playlist accompanying each routine, this equipment-free workout leaves you feeling energized, youthful and healthy.
Barre workout—with two barre heights to choose from to get a deep stretch at the level that is right for you. Essentrics has integrated the barre into its regular workouts. Keeping up with the fundamental principles of the program: elongating the muscles and challenging them in the lengthened position, strengthening while lengthening, zero impact without the use of weights—the Essentrics Barre workouts will tone and shape your body, create long lean muscles and increase your flexibility.
ESSENTRICS® Release & Restore
This 1-hour class is aimed at regaining your mobility while slowly building strength and reawakening the power of your 650 muscles. This class has a slower pace than our general Essentrics classes. It is designed for those who have atrophy-related stiffness, frozen shoulder, chronic aches and pains, or who are beginning to exercise after a long sedentary period. For men and women of all ages who are looking for a gentle, slow tempo class.
Mobility & Strength with BLACKROLL®
Blackroll training offers people of all ages and sport levels to improve their flexibility, balance, mobility and strength by doing simple exercises and self-massage. Full body training working through the muscle chains.
It eases tensions in your muscles and helps to release adhesions in your fascia. Your fascia will be rehydrated and nourished properly. This enables you to expand your range of motion and to increase your agility. The healthier your fascia, the higher your agility and overall performance.
