With Sarah Gibson
ESSENTRICS is a unique program that rapidly changes the shape of your body through a dynamic and fluid combination of strengthening and stretching. This workout develops lean, strong and flexible muscles with immediate changes to your posture.
ESSENTRICS is even smarter than that; it goes beyond changing just the look of your body, it also cares about how you feel in your body. With a diverse music playlist accompanying each routine, this equipment free workout leaves you feeling energized, positive and healthy.
ESSENTRICS strengthens and stretches every muscle in the body eccentrically, rebalancing the muscular structure in continuous rotational movements. It incorporates various techniques including PNF and isotonic movement while systematically working every joint in the body. The basis of the workout is a dynamic combination of strength and flexibility exercises, designed to pull apart the joints by elongating the muscles and challenging them in the lengthened position. This full-body technique works through the muscle chains, liberating and empowering the muscles, relieving them from tension in the process. While the technique is original in itself, it has been influenced by several disciplines. ESSENTRICS draws on the flowing movements of tai-chi which create health and balance, the strengthening theories behind ballet which create long, lean, flexible muscles and the healing principles of physiotherapy which create a pain free body.
