Do you want a serious core workout? The core has been misinterpreted for 30 years as being all about aesthetics, but now fitness professionals are discovering that you really can’t achieve serious functional fitness if you don’t train the core property. That’s because the muscles of the core form a dynamic link between your legs and arms, making the core the key to athletic performance, resistance to injury and an aligned posture that allows you to move throughout the day without pain. Think about the core as our entire torso that includes the skeletal scaffolding of your spine, shoulder blades, pelvis, and hip joints, plus all the muscles that support and move that scaffolding. This means that your butt, your back, and even the muscles at the top of your shoulders are part of your core. At ZeSa Fitness, we not only train your entire core, but we also go beyond training just the primary muscles of your core to recruit all muscle groups, including the stabilizers and neutralizers. ZeSa recognizes that the recruitment or awakening process of all muscle groups most efficiently and effectively results from unstable platform training. Better than any doctor, rehab, therapist, chiropractor or fitness trainer or elaborate exercise machines, the human body through its own intrinsic wisdom provides the fastest, most reliable path to programming or re-programming the neuromuscular system on the way to peak fitness. At ZeSa, our core workouts include intense group classes, or can be learned in the studio one-on-one with an instability specialist, a personal trainer specializing in the education and training of our trademarked core workouts. We concentrate on teaching muscular synchronization and body awareness using fitness tools engineered to challenge your equilibrium using our patented ZeSa Activator training platforms available only on location at our Washington Avenue studio in Minneapolis. No matter the shape you’re in, you can regain balance of mind and body with us at ZeSa Fitness. Our core workouts go beyond balance training using techniques learned and thoroughly researched by our founder in his lifelong passion for helping others to help themselves in unleashing the balance and strength you already possess within you, but needs only be re-programmed and strengthened with these core workouts. ZeSa creator and founder, Shanti Rainey, is a highly credentialed fitness authority, cutting edge personal trainer and yogi, who graduated from St. Thomas with his Bachelor’s Degree in Science. It’s there and through his continuing education and practice of those physical sciences that he shaped his career. Shanti identified that the best instability programs are unilateral, working on multiple planes, and are all built toward the goal of strengthening our core. Instinctively, we crave balance for strength and survival. Building upon that core instinct, Shanti’s passion to improve your quality of life in the means he is best educated to address, paired with those who shared his passion and became the wonderful specialists in our downtown studio.
