Program Update | Jim Marinow
I am looking forward to seeing you on Monday for Day 1 of my Stability/Mobility Workshop. I have (re) attached the location and start time information below as well as the COVID-19 protocols we will be observing.
Please give them a read as this will save us time, so that we can get to the good stuff right away.
I invite you to send me a one or two-line descriptor of any issues you may be having with mobility, limitations, or challenges in your workout. This will remain confidential and I will do my best to address it generically in the body of my class at some point over the next 6 weeks.
While the program is movement-based, it is not a workout in the conventional sense. My program is more instructional, with the intention of empowering you with information that you can use to get the most out of your workout and stay injury free, whether that is Walking, Olympic Style Weight Lifting, HIIT classes, Yoga or Boxing. In short, wear workout gear but don’t expect to get sweaty 🙂.
Over 6 Mondays we will cover Neck, Shoulder Girdle, Core, Low Back, Hips, Knee/Ankle: How to keep those structures moving within optimal ranges and how to keep them strong and stable as you move through…. well….anything.
On behalf of the team at New Age Physio and Kingsway Boxing, I am looking forward to meeting you and working with you.
Yours in health.
