Pilates Class Descriptions


Introductory

A one time private session to introduce you to the concepts and equipment of Pilates at a special rate. This is also highly recommended to help you choose the classes that are best for you.

Private Session

A one-on-one session with an instructor to meet your individual goals and needs. A private session allows you to be able to work on all pieces of equipment with a program designed specifically for you.

Duet Session

Two students to an instructor. Work out with a friend or spouse. A well-rounded program to meet the needs of both individuals, allowing for more attention to student’s needs from the instructor than a larger group class.

Trio Session

A class for 3 students to an instructor. Add more friends or family to your workout! A well-rounded program on most pieces of equipment which may include the mat, reformer, V2Max and chair.

Closed Group Classes

A closed group Pilates class consists of 4 to 6 participants. The class meets weekly at the same time and day with the same instructor for 5 weeks. Participants are charged for missed classes but can attend a drop-in class for a make-up. Closed classes allow for consistency and the ability of a group to progress together. .

Drop-in Classes

Classes for a minimum of 2 people and a maximum of 8, depending on the class type. These classes may be scheduled online and is a great way to maximize your dollar! Classes may be a well-rounded workout on the equipment as in our closed group classes or themed on one of your favorite pieces of equipment. Classes include bosu, chair, equipment, essential mat, intermediate mat, stability ball and more! Please see our Online Scheduler for a complete list and description.

Rock Steady Boxing


Rock Steady Boxing gives people with Parkinson's disease hope by improving their quality of life through a non-contact boxing based fitness curriculum.

Parkinson's disease is a degenerative movement disorder which can cause deterioration of motor skills, balance, speech and sensory function. The Parkinson's Disease Foundation estimates there are more than 1 million people in the United States diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, and more than 60,000 people are diagnosed each year.

In our gym, exercises are largely adapted from boxing drills. Boxers condition for optimal agility, speed, muscular endurance, accuracy, hand-eye coordination, footwork and overall strength to defend against and overcome opponents. At RSB, Parkinson's disease is the opponent. Exercises vary in purpose and form but share one common trait: they are rigorous and intended to extend the perceived capabilities of the participant.

Various studies in the 1980s and 1990s supported the notion that rigorous exercise, emphasizing gross motor movement, balance, core strength, and rhythm, could favorably impact range of motion, flexibility, posture, gait, and activities of daily living. More recent studies, most notably at Cleveland Clinic, focus on the concept of intense "forced" exercise, and have begun to suggest that certain kinds of exercise may be neuro-protective, i.e., actually slowing disease progression.

Parkinson's clients attest, and academic institutions, such as University of Indianapolis and Butler University, are reporting and documenting the improved quality of life among Rock Steady boxers. Discovery of a cure may be many years away but in the last seven years, there is evidence that progress is made in all stages of the disease by those participating in the RSB program.

Call today (417-865-0500) to schedule an appointment to visit the gym, speak privately with a Coach, or watch a class in action. Please consult your physician before starting any exercise program.

Rock Steady Boxing Assessment

Each Parkinson's client's journey with Rock Steady Boxing will start with a physical assessment. A certified Rock Steady coach will work with you to determine the correct level of classes, as well as track changes in scores over 6 month intervals. Gloves and wraps can be purchased at the time of the assessment, if the participant would like their own equipment. The assessment will take one and a half hours.
Assessment - $55 + tax

Rock Steady Boxing Unlimited Monthly Package

Once an assessment has been given and we contact the client's doctor for a medical release, they will be able to attend Rock Steady Boxing classes as often as their schedule allows for a monthly fee. Spouses or caregivers, known as cornermen, are encouraged to attend free of charge. In addition to exercise, Rock Steady encourages the "Fun Factor!" Throughout our history, RSB has developed games, traditions, and activities that promote FUN, keeping the morale high and the boxers looking forward to each class. Along with the boxing-style workout, it's not uncommon to play with toys, footballs, basketballs and have a good time in our classes. Our Coaches are constantly weaving in creative and entertaining ways to combat a multitude of Parkinson's symptoms. Getting the right kind of exercise is part of the battle, but equally important are the social and emotional benefits people gain from Rock Steady. Our classes encourage intense exercise and functional fitness, as well as emotional and social support, which is vital to the well-being of people with Parkinson's.
Unlimited Monthly Package - $175
Single Drop-in Class - $18

Private Rock Steady Boxing Training

Should a Rock Steady Boxing client prefer to have private training rather than with the group, one-on-one sessions are available with a certified Rock Steady boxing coach for either an hour or an hour and a half.
1-hour Private Lesson - $55
1.5-hour Private Lesson - $75

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS): The Mattes Method

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS): The Mattes Method, developed by Aaron L. Mattes, is one of the methods of stretching most used and respected by today's athletes and personal trainers. The AIS technique uses an active movement and reciprocal inhibition to achieve optimal flexibility. Performing a stretch of no more than 2 seconds has proven to be the key in avoiding reflexive contraction of the antagonistic muscles. AIS promotes optimal range of motion by facilitating flexibility at the joint, mobility of the spine and kinesthetic awareness that will add to athletic performance and offer freedom of movement that enhances daily health and well being. Instructors will provide clients with assisted stretches to the areas identified as shortened in the postural assessments of the first 5 sessions. Instructors will also provide clients with self stretches that may be performed at home.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient form of martial arts, practiced today primarily for its health benefits. Its origins are shrouded in myth and legend, but there are references to Tai Chi in some form as long as 5,000 years ago.

Although Tai Chi is a powerful martial art with significant application toward fighting, it is also practiced because of the profound health benefits that it imparts. It is adaptable to any age or level of fitness. The benefits come through many repetitions and slow, deliberate practice. This presents a unique challenge in our society which values speed and multi-tasking. The focus on breathing and coordinating the movement with the breath reinforces the mind-body connection, which lowers stress levels and positively impacts the immune system.

Health Benefits of Tai Chi

  • Balance, both Mental and Physical
  • Coordination
  • Strength
  • Diaphragmatic Breathing
    • Increases Oxygen Levels
    • Exercises Core Muscles
    • Stimulates Lymphatic System
    • Massages the Visceral Organs
  • Improved Circulation
  • Relief of Tension and Stress
  • Mental Clarity
  • Improved Blood Pressure
  • Improved Posture
  • Sense of Inner Calm

Morning Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa style yoga links poses or "asanas" with the breath. The flow practice is dynamic and incorporates sun salutations, standing poses, gentle backbends, inversions and unwinding postures. A deep relaxation closing is included in each class. Modifications are offered so students may enhance or reduce the intensity of the practice.

CORE SUSPEND

CORE SUSPEND is an invigorating suspension workout that incorporates the use of your own body weight as resistance. It triggers the deep stabilizers of the body to contract and support the joints, hence helps the body learn proper movement patterns without too much 'brain effort'. The unique SUSPEND sling system also aids in decompressing the spine and balancing the body by exercising it in multiple planes of movement that aim at developing incredible strength, balance and flexibility all at the same time.

Done on it's own or in conjunction with other types of fitness, CORE SUSPEND will produce excellent results as it aids to quickly break through exercise plateaus which allows one to gain more benefit from any other movement practice and thus - constitutes the essence of 'Smart Movement'®.

The CORE SUSPEND System of Smart Movement® is suitable for all fitness levels, regardless of age or ability.

Kettlebells

A kettlebell looks like a cannonball with a handle! It has been around for centuries as a tool to develop strength, flexibility and endurance. Kettlebells are a fun, exhilarating way to develop and improve mobility and all around fitness. The best way to explain it is to experience it!
