First of all I want to thank you for your continued support during this time of confinement. It means the world to me to HELP keep our community of fitness together.
If there ever was a time to be thoughtful about improving your level of wellbeing and fitness, THE TIME is NOW!
STRIVING TO KEEP FIT is vitally important to reduce stress, prevent ADDITIONAL weight gain, boost the immune system, and help us get a good night's sleep.
Establishing an exercise goal—such as getting your bodyweight (pilates) and strength training (bootcamp) classes set up for 2-3 times a week IS a great BEGINNING. A foam roller class to aid in relaxation and increase your lung capacity is beneficial to your whole health as well. Fitness Alternatives, a Whole Health Movement NOW offers a virtual studio of CLASSES with a variety of convenient options.

Join us to enhance your fitness regime with a total body conditioning system that increases abdominal strength, creates better posture and improves flexibility. It is considered an intellectual exercise program that heals the body as well as the mind. When Joseph H. Pilates developed the whole health method, it was called "Contrology". The movement was based on martial arts and yoga as well as body-building techniques from the west. He incorporated six principles into the movement - Concentration, Control, Center, Flow, Precision and Breathing!
We believe that a whole health focus in our classes addresses the body with strength and flexibility through exercise. The diaphragmatic breathing serves as a means of circulation for relaxation and detoxification as well as a guided meditation for health and wellness.
The selection of pilates classes we offer was thoughtfully designed to complement the use of various Pilates apparatus with the application of small group mat courses. The Pilates classes are small and personalized (usually about six people) so the benefits of improving flexibility, building strength and endurance can be realized. The emphasis on breath in the mat class is used to connect to the core and provide the mind/body connection to the movement.
Fitness Alternatives also offers private and semi-private sessions on the Pilates equipment by appointment. To schedule, click below or call 414-573-2895.
Low impact strength and conditioning continuous movement will enhance your aerobic conditioning and your circulation for 30 minutes. After the cool down, the foam roller provides a perfect environment to reverse forward-head posture (typical with cellphone usage) and improve core conditioning. Breathing for relaxation response and brain/body connection are acknowledged as a means of meditation.
The Fitness Alternatives' approach to our Bootcamp class emanates from a deep core-conditioning approach that incorporates squats, lunges, compound movements and push-ups (modified if necessary) on a Pilates mat. The class seeks to invigorate the whole-body system by enhancing strength and stability, providing for renewed energy.
