What is Essentrics
Essentrics® is a unique fitness program that re-balances the entire body through a dynamic and fluid combination of strengthening and stretching in motion. Each workout is scientifically designed to work through the muscle chains, loosen joints, and relieve chronic pain.
Influenced by the flowing movements of tai chi, the strengthening theories behind ballet and the healing principles of physiotherapy, Essentrics engages all 650 muscles and 360 joints. With a diverse music playlist accompanying each routine, this equipment-free workout enables our body to remain ageless, strong, mobile, flexible and pain-free.
You’ll notice the difference of how your body looks after doing Essentrics consistently but you’ll also notice how differently you feel in your body. Essentrics’ unique movements release body tension and help relieve the aches and pains that come with stiff joints and tight muscles. Each one-hour routine is accompanied by a diverse set of music, and that combined with the fluid movements, leave you feeling energized, positive and healthy after each workout.
With thousands of testimonials from the program’s devotees of all ages and fitness levels, professional athletes, Olympians, doctors and physiotherapists, we are confident that Essentrics will target what you need, unlock what is tight, strengthen what is weak and tone what needs shaping.
How does it work?
Essentrics strengthens and stretches every muscle in the body eccentrically, re-balancing the muscular structure in continuous rotational movements. It incorporates various techniques including PNF and isotonic movement while systematically working every joint in the body. The basis of the workout is a dynamic combination of strength and flexibility exercises, designed to pull apart the joints by elongating the muscles and challenging them in the lengthened position. This full-body technique works through the muscle chains, liberating and empowering the muscles, relieving them from tension in the process.
Who does Essentrics?
Essentrics is for every body! Essentrics is used to train Olympic athletes, professional athletes (Essentrics is used by the NHL Montreal Canadiens), and dancers, but it is also used for injury rehab (ask your doctor first), arthritis prevention, strengthening, and helps any body do more of what they love to do! Golfers and swimmers use it and it helps those with past injuries who seek a safe workout. It also helps those who seek a workout to help relieve pain, and those who want to increase their range of motion. It’s perfect for injury recovery and prevention, pain relief, stress release, and plus it promotes healing.
What equipment do I need?
Essentrics classes are non-impact, so are done bare foot. All you need is yoga mat and maybe a beach towel if you have neck issues or if you have trouble sitting up straight.
