Injuries happen! Did you know Hilliard Studio Method is the perfect complement to a rehab regimen (after the doc has cleared you to work out, of course)? HSM Family member, Farrell Hudzik, talks about rehabbing from a long-standing injury with The Method:
“As an ex-competitive collegiate runner and Olympic marathon trials qualifier I have been plagued with chronic hamstring pain. Within a month of starting Hilliard Studio Method I felt stronger and healthier running than I had in 10 years, not to mention my ‘pre-two-kid’ clothes fit better than ever! Additionally, HSM increased my flexibility in ways six years of yoga never did.”
Whether you’ve had a serious injury, you have joint pain every now and then or you simply want to avoid injury altogether, Hilliard Studio Method’s low-impact, yet high-intensity work lets you stay on track with your fitness while keeping you injury-free. We work out in proper alignment and make sure you stay there throughout the class to get you the results you want in a safe, healthy way. These are our tips for injury prevention that we practice in every single class:
- Core strength. This is the foundation of our workout and is key to injury prevention. A strong core not only helps prevent back injuries, but also helps support the body in every movement.
- Small Muscle Strength. We work in a combination of large and small movements. The small movements are key to developing strength in smaller, supporting muscles around joints like your knees and shoulders which help prevent injury
- Flexibility. At Hilliard Studio Method, we increase your flexibility and range of motion through strength and movement. A flexible, pliable muscle is less prone to injury.
