Are you set up right for your height??

 

Did you know that the footbar can be adjusted backwards and forwards for your height? Make sure you are on the right setting in order to get the best workout for your size!

 

On both sides of your reformer, below footbar you will find a black ball and several holes for the different height settings.

 

If you are little like me, you will want your setting to be as close as possible to the carriage and if you are a giant like Nick you will want to choose the setting closest to the platform. For everyone in between there are 5 holes to choose from so you get it right for your size!

Simply pull bot the black balls at the same time, and slide the footbar towards the carriage or the platform and release it into the appropriate hole. Remember which setting your on and make sure your set up correctly each time you train."

 When lying on your back with your feet on the bar, your knees should be at a 90 - degree angle. Don’t  be afraid to ask one of our awesone trainers to show you how to adjust the footbar. "

Welcome to Absolute!

IMG_SpinHi and welcome to the Absolute blog. 

 

We plan to use this as a forum to share our knowledge and ideas on living a happy, healthy and fulfilling life. Our expert trainers will all contribute on topics that are of particular interest to them. You can expect to read about such topics as, injury prevention, fluid consumption, nutrition, exercise for pregnancies, exercise technology, some of our favourite tips and tricks and many more informative articles on exercise and well being that our experience and education has taught us.

 

We hope that this blog becomes a regular source of inspiration, motivation and education for you, and a place you can share with us your questions and experiences.

 

 

Just to shed some light on Absolute I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about us.

 

The studio is located  on the top 2 floors of an office building in Parsons Green, London, UK. It was first opened in January 2010. Since then we have been providing our awesome clientele with a place to come and stretch, tone, strengthen and condition their bodies to their potential bests. Although we have flirted with some other modes of exercise (boxing, kettle bells etc) we have now concentrated our expertise into, stationary cycling, Absolute Spin classes and  reformer based, Absolute Pilates classes and Personal training . We feel these forms of exercise are a perfect match in terms of cardio vascular and calorie burning with postural correction, injury rehabilitation/prevention, flexibility and strengthening. With our powers combined we offer every individual the chance to achieve their individual health and fitness goals. See our testimonials  for some of the super people we have helped so far.

 

The studio is small in size ( currently 9 reformer beds and 8 spin bikes) but large in personality. We are a fun and lively bunch who get a great deal of enjoyment from the work we do. We have a fantastic clientele who are a real pleasure to work with. We love our work, but even more we love having a good time...

 

We make great efforts to provide a place where people can come and enjoy their exercise, feel safe yet challenged, educated and inspired. We hope this blog reflects our values and can reach out to those who have similar interests as ours.

 

Thanks for reading and we really look forward to hearing your feedback, questions, jokes, ideas and experiences on our brand new Absolute Blog!!
