In today’s world we are constantly looking for the next best thing. Whether it be technological or fitness related. Alicia and I are consistently reading, learning and growing in our own practice. We thrive on what’s new and exciting to challenge us and our clients while keeping in the realm of our ideologies which can be hard in the fitness industry…shake weight/belly belt!!

We are definitely not your cookie cutter Pilates instructors at TONE. So, it’s important that whatever we do, we stay true to our beliefs and foundations. It’s imperative to love your workout or you won’t do it. We realize the need for cardiovascular activity, both of us struggle to find ways to enjoy what can be the mundane task of running on the treadmill.

Enter SurfSet! As dancers we always liked being motivated in a group setting. We are not enthralled with running on the treadmill or the elliptical, it’s much like a hamster in a ball and it’s hard to stay present and aware of our body patterns in these situations. We both would rather take a class and feed off the energy of the class for motivation. SurfSet is exactly what we’ve been looking for. It allows us to challenge the heart and have a great time while doing it.

Many times we see bad form on the treadmill and elliptical. Round backs, rolled shoulders, no controlled breath and no connection to their core. At TONE we are sticklers on form, breath and a clear connection to our center (core).

SurfSet combines this level of core training merely because it’s on an unstable surface. It combines cardio and strength circuits so before you know it, your heart is pumping, you’re sweating, possibly swearing and burning calories.

So bottom line: We all get bored, we all like a challenge and SurfSet will help you Spring into Summer!!
