Brawn and Brains – Exercise and Cognitive Strength

A Workout for Your Body and Mind

A Be Balanced Community Event

Join us on Thursday, February 22nd at 5:45pm for an exercise class that not only strengthens the body, but the mind.

Recent studies have been exploring the connection between physical exercise and cognitive function.  Working out mindfully and completely focused at the task at hand – including your breath, your posture, your frame of mind – not only makes you more productive in your workout, it also helps strengthen your cognitive function.  By bringing focus and challenge to your workout, you can literally strengthen the entire body and mind.

Join us for a 1 hour class that will challenge you physical and mentally and change the way you look at your workout.

Class is free, but space is limited.  Please click HERE to RSVP.

 


What We Believe – 2018

At the start of the new year, the Koa Fit trainers sat down and wrote out a few things they truly believed.  Below are the answers in no particular order.

We Believe…

Fresh air and sunshine can cure any bad mood.

If you move the body, you move the mind.

Real food, eaten mindfully and with friends, is one of the great pleasures of life.

Working smart is far superior to working hard.

You can teach an “old” body new tricks.

Your support system does not depend on your physical location.

In doing things the right way, even if it is harder.

Peace must be found in one’s own mind before it can ever be found in another person, location, or object.

What goes around comes around.

Within a community where there is mutual love and kindness, we can creatively solve big challenges.

The secret to a healthy body is movement and hydration.

Our bodies are our partners.

Hard work and dedication make our successes taste sweeter.

Communities encourage understanding, love, and camaraderie.

That a walk in nature is some of the best medicine.

Exercise is always more fun with a friend.

#GetYourStrongOn

This newest version of Strong Balance Class adds new exercises to challenge your core muscles and improve your posture in an express format. Lengthen your spine, strengthen your core, improve your balance, open your hips, and get a whole body workout that leaves you standing taller and feeling stronger. Class includes mobility and stretching exercises combined with functional and dynamic strength moves to increase coordination, agility, and overall power. Specific exercises are used to correct common postural deficiencies to help relieve pain or stiffness in the neck, back, and knees. The class is designed to strengthen you in ways that decrease stress on the joints and the spine, and we use a smart work-to-rest ratio to keep inflammation within your body to a minimum. The Strong Balance Class creates balance and symmetry in your body, instead of just pushing you through a hard workout. Our class helps decrease your chance of injury and sickness, establishes long lasting lifestyle changes, and promotes a functionally strong body.
