Pilates for Cyclists: 6 Week Series

Begins NEXT WEEK, Wednesday 8/18 from 9:30-10:30 AM

Whether you’re trying to get a “pedal up” on the competition or trying to find a way to ride longer and more comfortably, Pilates is an excellent exercise for cyclists!

Most of us have heard that we should strengthen our core. But what exactly does that mean? This class takes you beyond sit-ups — which, while a great exercise, really do not strengthen your core. Your core includes your whole torso, front and back, and Pilates helps you integrate that core strength to your limbs.

If you’re looking for arm and shoulder endurance, increased respiratory efficiency, and to improve your lower back flexibility and stability, this would be a great series to attend!

Taught by Jen Landells: 
My movement background began at an early age as a dancer. I went to Western Michigan University where I was introduced to Pilates in the dance department. After discovering kinesiology and movement science, I changed paths and earned my degree in Exercise Science. After graduation, I found the perfect way to combine the two passions by completing my full Level 2 certification in STOTT PILATES.

After many years of teaching in Michigan and northern Florida, I decided to take my teaching career to the next level and become part of Balanced Body’s team of faculty trainers in 2011.

Then, in 2012, I completed the requirements to earn my post-rehabilitation conditioning specialist certification from STOTT PILATES.

I have worked with all levels of clients from beginners and post-rehabilitation to Olympic hopeful figure skaters, professional dancers, and NFL football players. I love the challenge of working with a wide range of fitness levels and abilities. It is so exciting to be able to help someone reach their goals. Either after surgery or an injury, in competition, or just to simply feel stronger and more balanced in daily life.

Personal Protection for Women: Monday 9/20 at 7 PM

Taught by Keep and Bear, LLC, this female-only course covers multiple facets of protection including situational awareness, instinctual responses, and nonphysical applications to preclude an encounter where protection is required.

From there, physical force applications are instructed including striking, force multipliers (hand weapons), and using them to assist in strikes and escapes from common grabs and other grapples.

These applications are intended to result in escape from a controlling engagement so the defender can reassess the situation and act to prevent harm (usually by escaping, neutralizing with physical force, or creating the time and distance necessary to bring lethal force options to bear).

Course Details:

  • An Introduction Packet will be sent to you upon registration.
  • This course is 1.5 hours long.
  • This course is moderately physically demanding. You will not be asked to push harder than you are able.
  • This course includes mild stress induction.
  • Live blades and weapons are not permitted in the training area.
  • Trainees will be expected to sign a waiver to partake in class.
  • There will be a short break at the 1/2 point of class.

Trainee Considerations:

  • This course is for females only, age 12+.
  • Non-adult trainees must be accompanied by an adult.
