Focus on Health, Wellness & Fitness Pilates Studio
Welcome to Focus on Health, Wellness & Fitness (FHWF) of Prescott, AZ THE only completely private Pilates Studio with a Certified Polestar Pilates Practitioner for one-on-one and small group sessions and THE only Pilates studio in Prescott staffed with a Certiifed NeuroKinetic Therapist, National Posture Institute Certified Posture Specialist, Certified American Bone Health Speaker, Pilates Method Alliance Member and a Certified Titleist Performance Institute Golf Fitness Instructor. We have been transforming body, mind, and spirit with various disciplines for nearly a decade.
The difference: our approach to the individual and their needs that make FHWF so unique-why? We focus on Functional Fitness, Pilates, Corrective Exercise AND Proper Posture focusing on YOUR body mechanics-your posture, your gait, your tightness, your movement patterns. Injuries cause imbalances, as does poor posture and life's wear and tear on the body. Perhaps we never learned the proper bio mechanics of body movement from childhood; our shoulders maybe rounded, or our head is forward-how do you fix it? Maybe we suffer from low back pain, hip pain, leg pain, shoulder pain, neck pain. Where do you go to learn how move with ease, efficiency and grace? How do you learn about your compensation patterns and learn how to correct them? These issues CAN be corrected through the guidance and work with Focus on Health, Wellness & Fitness because we use Pilates exercises to focus Stability, Strength, Balance, Endurance, Mobility, Coordination, Flexibility and Power.
We offer a wide range of private Pilates, group Pilates classes, Posture Assessments and Workshops as well as Golf Fitness Privates, Classes and Clinics, all professionally designed and taught to target your unique needs.
Pilates exercises work to create muscle balance, flexibility, core alignment and proper body and spinal bio-mechanics. FHWF offers individually designed Pilates Studio sessions and group classes with the focus on improving Posture and Functional Fitness through Pilates and other modalities to foster and build stabilization, strength, flexibility, balance, endurance and nutrition. Sports specialties include: Golf and Hiking. Advanced training in Pilates for Osteoporosis, Osteopenia, Stenosis, Scoliosis and other spinal issues, along with those with upper and lower extremity issues. Demographic specialties include: Baby Boomers(and others!) who want to keep what they've got and continue to improve because it is NEVER too late to start a fitness program. Pilates is the best form of exercise for posture.
Each client has different needs and requirements, therefore sessions are designed with the specific issues as foremost for safety and effectiveness. We work with Arthritis, Osteopenia, Osteoporosis, Stenosis, Scoliosis, MS, Parkinson's, Stroke Patients, Nerve Damage, Pre and Post Surgical, Post Physical Therapy or Rehabilitation, Sciatica, Degenerative Disc Disease, Lymphoedema, Circulatory Issues, Hip, Knee and Shoulder Replacements, Gait Issues, Forward Head, Torticollis, Spondylolisthesis, and Ankylosing Spondylitis. We also work with perfectly healthy people, too!
NeuroKinetic Therapy(NKT) is a sophisticated assessment and treatment modality that addresses the causes of dysfunctional movement/coordination problems at their root in the motor control center in the cerebellum. The motor control center stores these patterns and directs their completion through the spinal cord and the muscles. By utilizing NKT during a Pilates session, we are able to identify muscles that are not functioning properly and "fix" them prior to the movements of Pilates. The session is much more productive when the body is working optimally.
In addition to private Pilates customized sessions at the studio, group Pilates classes are offered at Backways Physical Therapy Clinic in downtown Prescott. The newest class offering is "Pilates for Healthy Bones" which is described in detail under the "services" tab and is safe and caters towards individuals with low bone density and other spinal issues. We offer Posture Assessments, Corrective Posture Programming as well as Posture Workshops.
