With one look at Yoga Escape's classes, it's clear that YogaFit-certified instructor Catherine Albertini prizes yoga's ability to help people de-stress and find a sense of peace. The classes, which sport such names as Gentle Yoga and Rest & Relax, all focus on relaxation and meditation, and they help participants unwind after a long day of sitting at work. Even the beginners' class incorporates seated meditation and ends in a relaxation pose.
Albertini, who welcomes all levels to her classes, emphasizes slow and steady progress and helps beginners acclimate their bodies to their newfound practice. She teaches them how to use props and encourages them to listen to their bodies—just in case their hamstrings start to cry.
Trainer Kavan Woodcock knows that a new mom trying to regain her figure shouldn’t follow the same exercise regimen as a football player looking to boost his power. So, at Underground Strength and Conditioning, they turn their clients’ specific goals into personalized workout and nutrition plans that utilize targeted exercises. Additionally, for clients with more general fitness goals such as improved strength and sustainable calorie burning, they offer
metabolic-conditioning classes centered around strong man-style workouts that incorporate tires, sledgehammers, and ropes.
Throughout all their training and group classes, Underground’s staff focuses on efficient workouts that value safety and proper instruction above all else. This is to ensure that clients stay safe while they improve their overall fitness, gain confidence, and build supportive relationships with fellow exercisers and empathetic kettlebells.
