My Personal Results

Since I started to do (then teach) Essentrics regularly, I have noticed:

 

Elimination of neck and shoulder tension - Constant stress left my neck and shoulders with tight tense muscles. Now the tension is gone, thanks to shoulder blasts, overhead reaches,  and figure 8 arms!

 

Relaxed low back - I used to have ongoing pain and discomfort issues in my low back (including sciatica!) That is gone, thanks to core exercises, hip flexor stretching and more!

 

Smaller waist - I went from a boxy waist (darn hormone shifts) to a nicely defined waist. Thanks to side bends, reaches and targeted core exercises!

 

Smaller thighs - Even as a 110# teenager, my thighs always touched as I walked. No more! (and I'm far from 110# now)

 

Increased flexibility - Before Essentrics, I had average (not great) flexibility. Now I can do front splits on both sides! Thanks to standing quad and hip flexor stretches and floor pretzel stretches.

Improved balance - My balance used to be pretty wobbly but is now very steady (except for some off days!) Thanks to balancing exercises (on one foot) such as hip cleaners, kicks, and slow bicycles!

 

Overall sense of well being - I love the feel after class, where my body simultaneously  feels worked out and relaxed like I just finished a massage. Great program for releasing stress!

 

Improved mobility - My joints feel more secure and stable, and I move more freely. Thanks to joint rotations in hip cleaners, figure 8 arms, gentle twisting in the shoulder socket during arm exercises, etc.!

 

Posture - My posture was okay before Essentrics, but today my posture is great! When I look around, there are so many people who have hunched over shoulders, especially the young (curse those handheld electronics!)
