ID : 7734   
« back to classes page
*You will need to get up and down from the floor multiple times during each hour.
*For first-time students or those who’ve undergone major surgery since they last took the course.

We will focus on core strength exercises to enhance knee stability with the goal of minimizing your chance of injury. The first class will include a basic functional assessment of each student. Then you’ll learn how to do exercises with cues on proper form for your existing strength level with adjustments to the exercises as you improve. Bring a fully inflated, properly sized Swiss ball beginning with week 2. We’ll email you information on selecting the appropriate size ball for your height. Wear gym shorts or tights so that the instructor can see what your knees are doing.
