Tai Chi

Q: What should I expect in class?
A: Your first class is typically the most challenging, regardless of what age or physical shape you are in. Even though the movements are slow and gentle, they're still new to you, your muscles are working, and it may be somewhat tiring. But don't lose heart! Most new students will tell you that they feel energized and have a great feeling of well-being after just one class. Usually by the third class, they are hooked on Tai Chi and attend regularly.
Q: How often should I come to class?
A: There are no set rules for how often to practice. Some students come almost every day while others come one to three times a week. The benefits of Tai Chi can be felt after only one class, so we believe that you will find the right number that works best for your body, schedule, and life.
Q: What exactly is Tai Chi and why should I try it?
A: Tai Chi has evolved into a graceful, meditative form of exercise that's now used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions. It promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing. When performed regularly, you can benefit from decreased stress, anxiety and depression; improved mood and aerobic capacity; increased energy and stamina; greater flexibility, balance and agility; and enhanced muscle strength and definition.
Q: Are your classes for men, women, or both?
A: Tai Chi is beneficial for men, women and even children. Because it's low impact and puts minimal stress on muscles and joints, it's generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. In fact, because Tai Chi is a low-impact exercise, it may be especially suitable if you're an older adult who otherwise may not exercise. It improves strength, balance, flexibility, and overall health and happiness' and that's priceless for anybody and every body.
Q: Do I have to be in shape to do Tai Chi?
A: No. The most common misconception that prevents people from doing Tai Chi is that they think they must be in shape first. Tai Chi is not about how fit and coordinated you are; it's about moving and optimizing your body and mind to develop and increase your strength, balance, flexibility, and overall health and happiness. With time, practice and patience, you will most likely benefit from getting and staying in shape.

Personal Training

Q: How are you different from a trainer at a chain gym like Planet Fitness,
Gold's Gym or Lifetime Fitness?
A: First and foremost, we are a private studio that is locally owned and operated. Huge crowds are not how we roll. We have no alliances to huge corporate gyms, and we work for our clients only. Unfortunately, many corporate trainers are paid bonuses and are under a lot of pressure to sell clients supplements and other things they may not need. Also, many corporate gyms don't require trainers to have a top certification. Their job is simply to keep you coming in, whether you're making progress or not.
Q: What's included in your personal training program?
A: It includes an initial testing and evaluation, resistance training and cardiovascular training program design, a review of flexibility, and coaching to work through the process _ ensuring your immediate and long-term success.
Q: How often should I train?
A: There are no set rules for how often to train with us. Some students come 3 or 4x a week while others come only 1 or 2x. The best thing to do is to come regularly. The benefits of Personal Training can be felt after only a couple of sessions, so we believe that you will find the right number that works best for your body, schedule, and life.
Q: What exactly does a Personal Trainer do?
A: Our personal trainers are highly skilled and nationally certified and have many roles when working with a client. Your personal trainer will serve as a coach, instructor and motivator. It is the personal trainer's job to assess your current physical and mental state; establish specific, achievable goals based on your objectives; design an individualized program; and do whatever it takes to keep you on track to getting results.
