Wall Squats

One of the many pleasures of being a Coach is helping people improve on a daily basis. Sometimes it’s with a movement sometimes it’s with their attitude towards a work out. Our goal is to not only help you improve in areas where you are good at but fix the problem areas in a way that ensures long term success for your fitness.

One of my most prescribed fixes is the “Wall Squat” AKA squat therapy. The squat is the most fundamental primal movement in our arsenal. The Wall Squat is one of the most effective ways to perfect the mechanics of your squat as well as being a very effective tool to warm up the range of motion and muscles used in the squat. So if you’re looking to improve – go find a wall! You can do this before/after a class or even at home. If you haven’t had the opportunity to do these in class take this opportunity to ask a coach and they’ll have you flawlessly administering“squat therapy” in no time.
