Body Innovations

Body Innovations emphasizes the importance of strengthening, stretching and flexibility to enhance performance and speed on the road and in the water.

All three triathlon sports rely on a strong core and optimal hip flexor strength and length. The mighty Psoas (hip flexor) is the kingpin of muscles as it affects both upper and lower posture and over time influences the outcome of your performance.

Our High Performance Training classes focus on challenging and improving strength, power/speed, endurance, flexibility, coordination and balance. This class will identify weaknesses in muscle movement patterning and teach you techniques to reduce the risk of injury and stress to muscles and tendons.

If you wish to improve your health, fitness, and performance call or email me anytime – sue@bodyinnovations.org 519-716-0578.
