Personal Training Studio Location:
Weight Loss & Toning
Marianne helps clients be their fit selves by developing customized programs to tone the body, help shed fat, and trim inches. Cardiovascular exercise, is one way to improve body appearance, but increasing body strength does as much to changing the body's appearance and aid in losing weight as diet and cardiovascular activity.
Marianne will create a personalized routine of body sculpting and cardiovascular workouts that may include:
- Resistance bands
- Kettlebell training
- Body weight
Pre/Post Natal Exercise
Studies show that exercise is beneficial in many ways for prenatal women. Marianne is eager to help soon to-be moms create prenatal exercise programs that will get your heart pumping, help you manage weight gain, emphasize stability and posture, while keeping you and baby safe and healthy.
As a new mom herself, Marianne knows first-hand it can be extremely difficult to training during these times because of fatigue (both from pregnancy and from sleep deprivation post baby), but regular exercise will help improve how you feel. An often overlooked aspect of training is how to optimize recovery. That's why training smarter, not harder is Marianne's approach.
These workouts can help you:
- Recover from birth more quickly
- Experience shorter labor time
- Lower risk of premature birth
- Reduce anxiety and stress
- Reduce risk of gestational diabetes
- Feel more energetic during pregnancy
Postpartum training must take care to lay proper foundations for pelvic floor and core health. Even though you may have been training regularly before, and during your pregnancy, the rapid physical, hormonal, and social changes to your life will impact how you train and recover post-baby. It's best to work with someone who gets that, and knows the proper approaches to safely re-establish your movement quality.
The benefits of Kettlebell training can't be overlooked. They provide a unique stimulus to the muscles to give you more bang for your training buck, especially when combines with body weight exercises. Basically you get the cardio and strength training effects all rolled into one. Check out one of Marianne's many home workouts using just a couple of Kettlebells, a step, and her body weight :
Strength training uses resistance to introduce muscular contraction and help build anaerobic endurance, increase the size of your skeletal muscles, and build strength. Combining different exercises, number of sets, repetitions, and changing up tempos builds muscle strength and allows you to achieve the desired results. Strength training is effective in weight loss programs and in the treatment of chronic conditions such as back pain and arthritis.
Strength training is shown to help:
- Improve metabolism
- Improve heart health
- Improve bone density
Every exercise program varies because every client is different, but we’re confident that with our expertise, equipment, and personalized programs, we can help all of our clients receive the most satisfying results in the most efficient way possible.
