  • Tired of Poor Posture?

    Tired of Poor Posture?

    One of the most important things about body mechanics and posture is alignment. As humans, our posture represents how well we move – your posture says a lot about how your muscles and joints are working. Many pains and problems in the body are associated with long-term misalignments. For example, a golf player who is always swinging and rotating in one direction may lead themselves to having asymmetrical overuse injuries over time. These can happen from bad habits or outside forces such as accidents or sports activities. Remember, what you tend to do most your body will want to adapt to (p.s. this is why we constantly vary tempo, angles, range of motion, tension, etc. when training ....

    How Infrared Sauna Therapy Can Boost Your Immune System

    While there may not be an actual “cold and flu season”, winter is a time immune systems are weaker because of lack of sun, intake of sugary food, holiday stress, and less sleep.

In this blog, we will discuss how infrared saunas can help strengthen your immune system for the cold and flu season. How a Fever Improves Immune Function Hippocrates famously said, “Give me ....

    Let's Talk Angles

    The work we do on the Mega is adjustable to training at different angles to help recruit different muscle groups and train functional movement patterns. Each workout is programmed to take your body to a certain threshold of intensity to stimulate the body’s adaptive changes. When the body is training at an effective intensity and the muscles are being effectively stimulated, your results are maximized. One of the key elements we use to effectively stimulate your body’s adaptive changes is effective form – YOUR ANGLES MATTER! Changing the angle of the body can change the way gravity affects the exercise. It will also change where you feel the work and the intensity of ....

  • Beyond Building Muscle, The Right Recovery is Important

    Beyond Building Muscle, The Right Recovery is Important

    No one wants muscle soreness to slow them down. Whether you’re a competitive athlete, a weekend golfer, or simply trying to stay active, proper muscle recovery impacts your ability to keep doing what you love. For athletes of all levels, research shows infrared saunas are useful in enhancing muscle recovery and performance. Your recovery process, or downtime between your workout or training sessions, should be equally as important as your training when trying to build muscle or enhance performance. During your recovery process, energy is restored and the body is able to heal tissue damage and rebuild muscles. Building muscle not only increases strength, but also boosts metabolism, ....

    Squad Stories: Meet Client, Danielle

    We asked member, Danielle, what brought her to the studio and why she stays – read on for her story, in her own words! As a former college soccer player, I knew I needed to find a lower impact workout as I moved forward in life. I signed up for a gym membership, tried various studios & sought to find the next activity I could commit to. When I came across InstaPhysique, the game changed. The squad atmosphere reminded me of being on a soccer team again, and the coaches inspired me every workout. At the time, I was going through difficult changes personally and professionally, so InstaPhysique became my therapy. Like Coach Kristin says, ‘if you’re thinking about ....

    Squad Stories: Meet Roseville Client, Alice

    We asked member, Alice, what brought her to the studio and why she stays – read on for her story, in her own words! I’m a full time registered dietitian, and also teach Bikram yoga on the side. I’ve always been an exercise fanatic, starting when I was about 12, going to an all-women’s gym with my Grandma. Back in the day I did aerobics, got really into weight training in college, later started swimming and yoga. I even did a fitness competition in my mid 40’s upon the encouragement of the trainer I was working out with at the time. On vacation several years ago in LA, I did my first Lagree class in Malibu. At the time I thought I was doing some version of ....

    Squad Stories: Meet Roseville Client, Dina

    We asked Roseville member, Dina, what initially brought her to the studio – read on as she shares her story! I moved to Roseville in September 2020, and one of the first goals I had was to find a lagree studio. I initially began attending megaformer workouts in January 2019 where I lived previously. When I found InstaPhysique, I tried the new client special, and shortly thereafter, I signed up for the unlimited membership. This has been the most enjoyable, effective, and efficient workout I have ever tried. I spent years prior working out at a regular gym only to experience injuries and average results. In my opinion, there is just no comparison to lagree. Consistency with this ....

    YOUR BUTT: Why We Care So Much About It

    THAT COVETED INSTA BOOTY : While having a lifted, well-toned rear end looks great, the benefits go much deeper than just appearance. Your backside consists of three major muscles: the glute maximum, glute medius, and glute minimus. This important group of muscles extends the hip (pulls the thigh behind you), abducts the hip (your lateral movement to the side), and does internal and external rotation of hip. They work in conjunction with the hamstrings (the three muscles at the back of our upper leg) to help us walk, run, kick and climb. They’re incredibly important, but they’re often weak and underworked. Many of us to have chronically tight and weak glutes due to excessive ....
