Essentrics with Jos has brought the Essentrics® workout to Hong Kong for the first time.
After suffering from years of lower-back pain Jos discovered Essentrics® when she visited Europe in 2014. Just one Essentrics® class loosened up her back and she walked out of the gym feeling taller and stronger. Since then, she’s been enthusiastically learning the techniques and feeling the benefits of regular Essentrics® practice. For her, what makes Essentrics® so powerful is that it provides a genuine full-body workout and leaves your muscles and joints feeling more relaxed and reinvigorated. And, because it’s low impact, it is suitable for adults of all ages and fitness levels. An enthusiastic instructor, Jos is passionate about teaching the workout to as many people as she can in Hong Kong, so that they can feel the same benefits as she does when practising Essentrics®. Our Essentrics® classes are taught at clean, comfortable and conveniently located studios, providing you with the best Essentrics® experience.
Essentrics® strengthens and stretches every muscle in the body eccentrically, rebalancing the muscular structure in continuous rotational movements. The basis of the workout is a dynamic combination of strength and flexibility exercises, designed to pull apart the joints by elongating the muscles and challenging them in the lengthened position. This full-body technique works through the muscle chains, liberating and empowering the muscles, relieving them from tension in the process. While the technique is original in itself, it has been influenced by several disciplines. Essentrics® draws on the flowing movements of tai chi which create health and balance, the strengthening theories behind ballet which create long, lean, flexible muscles and the healing principles of physiotherapy which create a pain free body.
