What is Essentrics?
For starters, it’s not “Eccentrics”, although when people hear us say the phrase “No Pain, All Gain” they might think we are a little strange at first! It’s ESSENTRICS®, with the double S, and it’s an amazing, full body stretch program suitable for women and men of all ages, body types and fitness levels, created by Canadian fitness expert Miranda Esmonde-White.
Essentrics® is a dynamic full body workout! That means that in every Essentrics® class we target ALL the muscles in the body, starting with the tiniest muscles in our feet to the major muscles in our legs and arms. Why is this necessary? As we age, if we don’t target and activate all our muscles – we lose the cells within our muscles. These cells are the guardians of our youth. They contain our energy-producing mitochondria and the lose of those cells result in the signs of aging: loss of energy, weight gain, pain, stiffness, fatigue and loss of skin elasticity.
What is unique about our program is that its purpose is to eccentrically move the entire body (all 650 muscles and 360 joints). This means we are simultaneously strengthening and stretching our muscles through a combination of dynamic movements. The results leave you feeling taller, leaner, toned, and flexible. There is no equipment required. We workout barefoot and listen to an amazing playlist that is specifically curated to the movements. This is a FEEL GOOD Workout!
Aside from the benefits of improved posture, mobility, and range of motion, this workout is safe and effective for pain relief, injury prevention and rehabilitation. The Essentrics® Technique has been influenced by the strengthening theories behind ballet, the flowing movements of tai chi and the healing principals of physiotherapy. Essentrics is functional fitness for everyone that provides full body maintenance for our entire lives. It provides our body with the everyday movements it was designed to do and what our bodies need to stay mobile, strong, flexibly and healthy.
Adding Essentrics® to your weekly routine will also rebalance your body, protect you from injury and improve your overall form. This is critical as it addresses the imbalances caused by other daily activities and fitness programs. For instance, do you sit at a desk all day, do heavy lifting, or stand on your feet for hours at a time? All of these can have repercussions on your physical wellbeing. What about your fitness programs? Do you run, bike, play sports, do yoga or Pilates? While most of these programs provide amazing benefits to your health, they can also create imbalances in the body that need to be addressed, including past injuries and scar tissue that can build up and limit our mobility.
A healthy body needs to be equally strong and flexible. Regardless of age we can get stronger and have more energy by moving all our muscles. The Essentrics® Technique is a great fitness program that will improve mobility, decompress the joints and work EVERY muscle, joint, soft tissue and yes, even fascia using safe dynamic motions that our bodies were designed to perform.
If this speaks to you, then you are ready to try a class!
