PILATESThe goal for the Pilates Program at LA PALESTRA is to give the tools needed to maintain and support the balance of good posture, strength, and control over the body and mind through movement. Our routines and habits cause us to consistently overuse specific muscles; with that in mind what you can expect from a Pilates workout is learning an ordered series of exercises that will stretch out and uniformly develop the body from top to bottom. The workouts are rigorous and will increase body awareness which helps to prevent injury and correct compensation patterns.
Yoga is about creating balance in the body by developing strength, flexibility, and awareness. It integrates all aspects of an individual, mind and body, to create an even fuller life. Some of the many benefits of yoga are: long, lean muscles; increase in flexibility; improved coordination and balance; releasing of toxins from the body; and lowering stress levels. At LA PALESTRA, yoga sessions are tailored to your particular needs, with lots of attention to alignment in order to create not only a rigorous workout, but one that will leave long lasting effects of wellness throughout your day.
Personal Training at LA PALESTRA is radically different from other personal training experiences for several reasons:
- All exercise sessions delivered at LA PALESTRA are based exclusively on the needs of the specific client and developed using LA PALESTRA’s specific methodology.
The exercise is “program centric” not “trainer centric”. The program is the strategy used to reach a client’s goals. Sessions are NOT based on what a trainer feels like doing on a particular day with his / her client.
Members exercise with multiple LA PALESTRA trainers using a “team approach” which provides greater flexibility in scheduling appointments and a broader perspective and skill set than a single trainer could provide.
LA PALESTRA Nutrition is fundamental to the integrative services offered to improve the quality of people's lives. Each client begins their membership with a nutrition assessment as part of their initial medical evaluation, and receives yearly follow up from the registered dietitian nutritionist.
LA PALESTRA Nutrition services are provided by a staff of handpicked registered dietitian nutritionists. Services include: individual and group nutrition counseling, lectures, and cooking classes and demonstrations. Nutrition counseling is available at any location and specializes in sports nutrition, medical nutrition therapy and dietary modification, weight management, resting metabolic rate testing, and meal and menu planning. Proper fuel and hydration is essential to each client's success, and the LA PALESTRA Nutrition team helps each client achieve their goals.
