Burn between 600 and 900 calories per hour, strengthen and sculpt infrequently used muscles, and drum your way to a leaner, slimmer physique - all while rocking out to your favorite music!

STUDENT INFORMATION
Exercise routines and levels may vary, but the path to the deepest, most effective and fulfilling workout does not. Using your focus to empower your mind and body is the surest way to get a great workout.  Learn the concept of connecting the mind and body, and/or sustaining that connection.

BALANCE FITNESS STUDIO RECOMMENDATIONS:

     *     Drink some water (4-8 oz the hour before class).  Bring some water to class as well.

     *     Eat something easily digestible and high in potassium (like a banana) and/or coconut water.

     *     Wear attire that is comfortable and easy to move in, along with proper shoes

     *     Inform your instructor of any ailments, injuries, or reservations you have.

MIND:

     *      Keep your levels in perspective, realize you will get better, and appreciate yourself for showing up.

     *      Give yourself an attainable, physical goal (i.e. I will be aware of my core and breath: I will not take a

             break in thigh work; I will do 10 more reps).

     *      Ask yourself questions that allow you to stay present (i.e. What is my posture/alignment? Am I 

             targeting the right muscles? Can I make this exercise more challenging?)
