Getting Stronger

These videos are designed to improve strength and range of motion using such tools as dumbbells, elastic bands, elastic tubing, pilates rings, instability equipment, and body-weight to improve muscle contractions, muscle strength, and muscle responsiveness. Having a strong, stable core along with good muscle tone is the key to reducing pain, inflammation, and body fat. Not only that, you will see your body shape change for the better as you improve joint stability and lean body mass.
