essentrics & Aging Backwards program

You're Essentrics teachers

Class duration is usually 45 to 60 minutes. Essentrics is provided only live. Based on the Essentrics Teacher's License, we do not offer taped or on-demand for this fitness program. All Essenrics classes are live stream. 

Is ESSentrics right for you?

Everyone needs to be flexible and mobile. Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints. Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Essentrics focuses on active stretching exercises usually applied in ballet, PNF, tai chi fluidity and physiotherapy techniques.

Stretching

Stretching is also beneficial to improve your posture. Poor posture—a common and increasing problem—can easily be reversed and healed with daily stretching. Because Essentrics targets the posture with specific trademark stretching and strengthening techniques for your muscles that encourages proper alignment, your body posture will be less slouched and more vertical.

Strengthening

Strengthening and maintaining your muscles can boost metabolism, which means you'll use more energy for every action you perform. Muscle-strengthening activities help maintain the ability to perform everyday tasks and slow down the rate of bone and muscle loss associated with ageing

What is essentrics?

ESSENTRICS® is a full-body workout that rapidly changes your body's shape through a dynamic combination of strengthening and stretching. We stretch and strengthen the entire body, targeting all 650 muscles in the body. We work on our fingers' tiniest muscles to the major muscles in our legs and arms dynamically to get the most out of our joints, muscles, and connective tissue. 

People of all ages can do the workout with some modification or going at a slower pace. It is a favourite fitness program for athletes, seniors and people seeking to improve their mobility and range of motion, especially after injuries.  

The results leave you feeling taller, leaner, toned, and flexible. There is no equipment required. We workout barefoot and listen to an amazing playlist that is specifically curated to the movements.

How does it work?

Basically, eccentric movement is one of four types of contractions a muscle can make.  An eccentric contraction is a motion an active muscle makes while it’s lengthening under load. In an Eccentric class, the load is your own bodyweight consisting of your legs, arms and torso. The result is your body works hard to lengthen the muscles without bulking them up since they are stretching consistently and building longer, leaner muscle fibre.

 

When you practice Essentrics consistently, you’ll notice positive results. Plus, you note positive improvements in your posture, mobility, and muscle retention. 

what we offer

Essentrics Classes

You can expect to be standing for the first half of the class and engage in large, fluid movements using your full body while moving to music. During the standing portion of the workout, we also isolate the arms and the legs to work the muscles eccentrically. Then, we hit the floor format work and do some controlled abdominal focus sets and a killer leg lift sequence. At the end of the class, we do a dynamic stretch where the focus is on movement within our stretches to get the most for our joints and relieve pain. 

Essentrics Barre

In an Essentrics Barre class, we use the ballet barre for isolation in the standing series and to increase the range of motion and deepen in the stretch sequence.

Essentrics Workshops

We're proud to be a recognized online fitness platform for Essentrics. We host two-hour Essentrics workshops throughout the year. Please visit our Workshops and Events page for more information here.

Essentrics Live Stream

There are a few rules we need to follow. We want to provide a FAQ on these rules to help you get the most out of Essentrics online.

  • On-Demand: We are not allowed to tape or provide previously videotapes Essentrics classes. This means that when you register for an Essentrics class, it will be like taking a local class. The time will be the time, and if you missed the class, well, you missed the class.

  • Teacher Cancellation: We will try our best to have a replacement if one of us can’t teach on the slotted time. However, as in everyday life, sometimes it can be impossible. Especially teaching online, not everyone is comfortable with being on camera. As such, we will offer a class replacement when you purchase a package.

  • Technology: We use Google Meets for the time being. Once you purchase an Essentrics package, we will email you a dedicated link. You will need a webcam so that you can see the online class.

  • Personal Training Student No-Show: Should you can’t make the Essentrics class, as we mentioned above, this means you’ve missed the class. Please ensure you are available before purchasing the Essentrics package.
