Get a Grip: Improving Hand Strength and Wrist Mobility

We use our hands for everything: household chores, self-care, gym activities and so much more! Grip strength and wrist mobility exercises should be included in every exercise program to ensure that we can continue to perform all of those activities. We will learn exercises that you can incorporate into your everyday routine to stretch and strengthen your hands and wrists.

The Benefits of Unilateral Training

Unilateral exercises are single-arm or single-leg movements. These exercises ensure that you are training both sides of the body equally. This helps prevent overtraining or overuse of the dominant side, helps correct muscular imbalances, improves balance, aids in injury prevention and more. Come learn about unilateral training and how you can incorporate it into your exercise program!
