Robin Wehling is like family. She's been part of the Village Spin family for about two years. Take a moment and listen to her tell her story of recovering from a massive heart attack.
Unfortunately this story is not unique or unheard of. In fact, most of us probably know someone who has had a heart attack or someone we know will have a heart attack. What are the signs? What do you do if you think you (or someone you know) is having a heart attack? What can you do to reduce your chances of having a heart attack?
The Village Spin team has grown and is more dynamic, diverse, and passionate than ever. With the expansion of our team, and our diverse backgrounds we are ready to add a few new things to the Village Spin experience. We are excited to introduce Barre classes to the studio, beginning November. Barre workout is a hybrid of ballet inspired moves with components of pilates, dance, yoga, and strength training. It is a low impact class, focusing on isometric moves that hold the body still while contracting specific muslce groups. Barre class is a full body workout that can be modified for all exerience and fitness levels, but will still challenge every bit of your strength, stability, flexibility, and metabolic training abilities.
Jenifer Cardone and I will be introducing Barre classes in November. We are both certified in Barre and can't wait to get classes rolling. We've been taking Barre (combos) classes at some studios around Western New York. We are both very excited to continue building our experience/exposure with barre at our up coming collaboration with Garage Fitness Studio, October 27th at 10 am.
To start, we are adding barre to two new combo classes. Jenifer will be launching the BarreX class. BarreX is a one-two knock out combination class. Building strength, mobility, flexibility, and metabolic endurance through the use of resistance training on TRX suspension traps and the use of functional strength training moves on the mats. I will be kicking off the BOSU & Barre Combo. This class will be a mix of bootcamp style moves on BOSU balls with isometric training using Barre moves. Our muscles will have a little shake to them for sure! As we move into winter, we will add a full hour class, Barre None.
