Stretch & Move (Onsite)
- Thursday 1.30 – 2.30pm – starts 15th April
Currently with all classes being online, we have kept it to a simple variety: Bodyweight Workouts and Stretch & Move (energetic or relaxed) (with Physiotherapist). These are designed to help boost your energy levels, muscular strength & endurance, core stability, reduce tension (particularly if your body is feeling the effects of sitting for long periods or sore from exercise programs that don’t involve stretching) and improve your mobility for better functional control of your body.
We aim to provide fitness classes that complement the rest of our training at DSD Academy. Fitness is very much a part of each discipline – you won’t do a Boxing / Muay Thai / Krav Maga class (etc) without plenty of exercises to boost your speed, strength and explosive movement to help your combat skills and make your body more energy efficient. It is also important to promote muscular balance, not focus on one area but work on the body as a whole, so that your connective tissue from joints, bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments etc are all strengthened to meet the demands placed on them and reduce the risk of injury.
There are many ways you can challenge yourself in order to progressively improve your body’s function and capabilities. Everyone has individual strengths & weaknesses; if it’s easy you need to up the challenge to make your body adapt, if it’s difficult you need to adjust and simplify to build up safely and ensure your neuromuscular system is firing in a beneficial way.
At DSD Academy our expert instructors run fitness and conditioning classes for men and women of all ages and abilities.
