Opening a studio that blends fitness, dance and overall conditioning has been a long term goal for Chris. Her fitness resume begins with the aerobic explosion and has continued to expand. Early certification in Rep Reebok, Reebok Step, and Stability Ball gave her a solid group X foundation. For the past 12 years Chris has trained and been educated in the Stott Pilates Methods and is a seasoned Mat and Reformer instructor. TRX group training, PiYo, and barre classes are favored classes. She is certified in Barre Above and TRX and has many years of experience with dance based classes. Her attention to proper form and breaking down movement patterns is a foundation of her classes.
Chris Brush instructs the following:
A slower paced mat class that combines familiar Yoga poses and Pilates core and strength work. The major focus of the class will be on stretching and easing through tightness as you increase flexibility. Open to all levels.
Wear clothing suitable for yoga or pilates...leggings or similar, close fitting top, bare feet or non skid socks are advised.
Pilates Mat ( intermediate and above)
Participants in this class will have had some previous Pilates experience. Knowledge of core engagement principals, proper breathing, imprint/neutral, and ability to modify as needed will be essential to enjoying the full benefits of this class. Props will be included at times.
Total Body Conditioning (LOW IMPACT CARDIO & WTS)
Experience a variety of strength movements for the upper, lower and core muscle groups interspersed with low impact cardio intervals of athletic aerobic training. This class burns fat while increasing lean body mass. A variety of equipment will be used each week to achieve optimal results. This is a great way to get fit and challenge your body in a non-competitive total body workout.
A basic knowledge of Pilates is helpful, but not necessary.
The instructor will tailor the class to the level of the clientele...offering a variety of modifications or challenges to allow you to personalize your class experience. Props will be incorporated also...toning balls, gliders, Pilates Circles, toning bands, light weights, stabiltiy balls, and more.
