Crawling, walking, running, jumping, bending and stretching are all essential to life. The single thing we all have in common is motion. People work out, train and condition themselves in many ways and for a variety of reasons. Even those of us who just want to look or feel better have to move to do it. It is a physiological fact that increasing range of motion directly effects, enhances and supports strength training, athletic performance, cardiovascular conditioning and is a powerful therapeutic tool for rehabilitation and pain management.
The ability to move joints through their full range of motion without excess muscle tension. Though this seems simple enough, the sedentary modern lifestyle of watching television and working all day in an office significantly hinders this ability. Lack of sufficient flexibility can lead to injury, back pain, less productivity at work, and reduced enjoyment of many activities. As flexibility increases, people find it easier to comfortably perform daily and recreational activities.
Freedom of movement is completely dependent upon the availability of space within the body. Without adequate space within the body, efficiency of movement is greatly compromised. Space becomes absolutely essential when we shift our perspective and view space within the body as the foundation of all physical movement. Only then can we begin to respect the importance of its essence.
A secondary element of the programs of In2One is the concept of Proprioception which can be best described as the sense of controlling one’s body in motion through space and time. This approach to health and wellness will be diffused throughout the entire range of programs offered by In2One. A partial list of current programs and a brief description of each is provided to emphasis the depth and breadth of the current strength and conditioning programs.
Based on clinical practices, therapeutic exercises are used to provide preventive care as well as rehabilitation services for its patients. The therapeutic, sports specific exercise programs not only offer injury prevention, but also focuses to enhance physical performance during the rehabilitative phase of the athlete’s recovery and return to high performance.
Strength training programs combine innovation with science by developing exercises that simulate the dynamic athletic movement of a particular sport. By using various forms of resistance, isokinetic machines, resistant tubes, and water resistance, In2One programs are kept functional and effective.
Speed development through the use of innovative neuro-muscular techniques including speed training, resisted sprinting, reactive and power training along with various other sport specific drills.
To obtain optimal cardio-vascular fitness, the body must be exposed to a variety of cardio-vascular exercises. Cross-cardio training will cause the cardio-vascular system to adapt to a variety of demands (i.e. swimming is a different cardio-vascular exercise than basketball which is different than distance running). By adapting many forms of cardio-vascular exercises you will be better conditioned for an individual discipline.
A concept derived from a variety of disciplines including ballet, yoga, martial arts and creative movement. For many of our clients, programs are designed for long, lean muscles without the bulk. Flexibility also reduces the risk of injury and cuts down the rehabilitation process in terms of time. Several other benefits of flexibility are increased: speed, agility, strength, endurance, and performance enhancement.
An MTMJ exercise can be described as a complex physical movement which places the whole body in motion. These new and creative types of exercise techniques require the athlete to attain high levels of concentration and focus. Most conventional exercise techniques require very little thought. However, when performing MTMJ techniques, the brain is an essential component utilized for visualization and concentration. This is necessary in order to achieve the essential elements of balance, rhythm, timing, flexibility, and coordination which are congruent to every MTMJ technique. Indeed, the use of MTMJ techniques will allow athletes to optimize training and performance for different activities.
