    Infrared Sauna on a Hot Summer Day? Yes, please!

    You asked, we answered! Why would any sane person voluntarily sit in a sauna while it’s 100+ degrees outside? We know that the more regularly you use an infrared sauna the more amazing (downright magical) the effects are. Because of this, saunas seem like a no-brainer in the cold and dreary winter months. But once the weather warms and everyone is flocking to the nearest pool, your infrared sauna time is no less important. Here's Why: Glow Boost / Sunburn Relief: It sounds too good to be true, but science supports it. Photobiomodulation uses invisible, near infrared (NIR) wavelengths (700 to 1,200 nanometers (nm)) and visible red light (620-750 nm) to deliver energy to ....

    4 Tips To Create New Habits

    Feeling like you need to make some changes? Here are the tips that have helped me form new habits: Be specific, and start small. Incremental changes lead to big results. Share your plans with people that will support you (family, friends, the InstaPhysique community) Be patient and realistic. I use the concept of progressive overload. Once you get comfortable with where you are put pressure on progress, a habit (good or bad) takes approximately 3 weeks to begin to form and really a few months for it become more permanent. Remember the 80/20 rule - 80% consistency over 2-3 months is way better than being perfect for 2 weeks and then quitting. At the end of the day, I just ....

    Why Are Your Intrinsic Muscles So Important?

    What are the intrinsic muscles? The intrinsic muscles are those smaller muscles that exist entirely within the confines of the muscle and the occur deep within the structure. For example, the extrinsic core is made up of larger muscles you know like the gluteal muscles, hamstrings, adductors and lats – while the intrinsic core is composed of the transverse abdominals, internal, multifidus, diaphragm and pelvic floor.

  • 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 ....

    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.

    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 ....
