What is ISO-MOTION for Movement Performance?
ISO-MOTION for movement performance combines isometrics as the fastest way to build strength and incorporates movement to enhance your mobility and strengthen your body in ways you naturally move. This concept is also know as functional fitness. We believe any time you increase your strength you are adding to your functionality. When concentrating on body movements and natural motions your added strength more directly correlates to performing in your daily routines.
Mobility exercises focus on movement to loosen up your joints and strengthen your muscles for improving flexibility as well. The more you focus on rotating your joints and exercising those areas the more you can open up and improve your mobility.
Purpose of ISO-MOTION for Movement Performance
