When we grab a foam roller we automatically go for the lower body, right? Well, we hold a lot of tension in our shoulders and forearms when we lift, as well as constantly engaging our core, so… let’s give that upper-body and core the same attention and love we give our lower-body with some of the best foam rolling exercises for the back, shoulders, arms, neck, and core. Grab a foam roller, tennis ball, or medicine ball, and let’s rock n’ roll!
This Amazing 20 Minute Stretch Routine is not only the best stretch session to do after a Spinning Class, Bootcamp, or any other workout, but it’s also great to do on its own any day! You’ll work on areas like the hips, hamstrings, IT band, and back. Most of the stretches will take place on the ground, so get comfortable as Miriam helps you find the perfect challenge for you, which she says is “just on the cusp of edge and ease.” Enjoy!
Grab a towel to use just in case you need the extra stability.

This amazing, 20 minute, full body stretching routine with core will open up that spine and make space in there to feel lifted and light. We lengthen the entire body with wide arms, twists, core curls, and sways. Balance challenges are thrown in too to engage that core. Breathe and enjoy!
How could rubbing a piece of foam on your leg do so much good? Well, foam rolling is a form of self-myofascial release and helps improve your muscles’ range of motion, boost blood circulation, and break down tightness or knots in your muscles… Nice! Plus, it’s a perfect way to begin or end your workouts.
This 15 minute foam rolling session for your legs will focus on your quads, hamstrings, hips, glutes, and lower back. So grab your foam roller (or a small ball if you do not have one) and let’s give our muscles some love and respect. Let’s roll.
This quick, yet effective, upper-body release will open up the chest, elongate the neck and back, and unburden the shoulders. It’s perfect for those that are tight from lifting weights, those who sit for long periods of time (think desk job), as well as for those of you that might spend some time hunched over your bike. 🙂 No excuses, it’s 10 minutes! Take care of you.
Grab your TRX straps, and get ready for a well deserved total body stretch. The TRX will allow you to get deep into those stretches and lengthen the muscles, by letting you work in a greater range of motion. We’ll start with the back, legs, and glutes, then we’ll move onto opening up the often missed chest, arms, and shoulders. Go on, hit play – you deserve it.
This stretch and restore includes familiar athletic stretches, and has an emphasis on deep breaths, long holds, and settling into position. This will ensure the full lengthening of the muscles, as well as the loosening of the joints to assist in relaxation and recovery.
This feel good stretch is a special release in my humble opinion. It’s me, Cat, saying, “folks, this bud’s for you.” 🙂
It’s a comprehensive 12 minute stretch and restore that ANY BODY can actually do and not feel inept. Variations are shown for every level. And, the super cool thing is… I’m not the most advanced, so you’ll feel really good about yourself. I target hips, legs and the lower back to loosen you up and just flat out make you feel amazing. Do it after a workout or just whenever you need it. Enjoy team!
In this gravity and wall inspired stretch class, we will facilitate deep hip, glute, back, and hamstring stretching. We start on our back with our legs and buns flush to the wall. Ahhh… it feels awesome. The wall serves as a nurturing and barrier breaking tool, allowing us to work with range of motion habits. I encourage you to try to relax in to each pose as you feel that solid wall support. Of course we’ll work in some more traditional feel good stretches as well, and as always, modifications are encouraged to suit your personal body needs. Time to stretch!
This is the best post spinning stretch ever. We’re doing some different, yet effective, hip and hamstring elongations that will allow you to move freely throughout without stiffness in your hips, back and legs. Sweet right! Join us to see how agile and fluid your limbs can become if you give them just a little love.
