Q&A with Jennifer Loman, Owner
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
As a women's only studio, we tend to talk more so we become friends and support each other.
What's the most radical physical transformation you've seen a client make?
One client lost 35 pounds in order to get approved for knee replacement surgery.
What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?
We start with a warm up while everyone has some time to say hello to each other. I always start with core exercises (abs, obliques, lower back). I usually work opposing muscles so I use body weight or resistance bands to work the back and chest, quads and hams, arms, and inner and outer thighs. I always say the name of each exercise, tell you which muscles we are working and demo a Level 1, 2 and 3 skill set. I also like to incorporate a lot of balance moves to engage core. We end with stretching every major muscle group.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
During better weather, we will be doing some group outings such as hiking, biking, stand up paddle boarding and kayaking. Also, I encourage teens to come attend class with mom!
