Understanding what the class levels mean

 

Your beginning class level is determined at your evaluation (click here to learn more).
NEW Fitness Table members typically begin at SBC or L1 and as they get stronger over time they advance to the next level, working towards achieving the highest level, which is Level 4.
SBC (Special Back Class) – a class designed especially for those with injuries and issues
L1 (Level one) – a beginning level where you build a strong foundation in skill, strength and awareness & learn proper breathing technique
L1+, 2, 3 and 4 are classes for for students who have worked up to more advanced levels
OPEN – open to anyone who is at a Level 1 – Level 4
OPEN Stretch, Back & Abs – open to anyone at Level 1 – 4, the class is more focused on stretching, back and ab work

Method & History

Classes

 

1: ASSESSMENT
A private evaluation assesses how YOU can get stronger
2: DO IT
Classes in your level build your strength & awareness
3: PROGRESS
Get results, Increase your Level

Getting started with Fitness Table

The first step in beginning with the Fitness Table is an evaluation.
During your evaluation, you’re assessed to identify issues, imbalances and other areas where you’ll need strengthening and exactly what YOU need to improve your core strength and posture and the proper class level for you to begin at.
The evaluation is an important part of the Fitness Table process, to ensure that we know what you need to be doing and NOT doing during class so you improve and get stronger. Call us at 403-245-9009 to book an evaluation appointment.

 

IF you have no issues or injuries, you are welcome to try a complimentary class BEFORE your evaluation appointment (Level 1 or Open 1-4). 
You can claim your complimentary class by signing up through the “Complimentary Class” tab in the menu above, create a new account with your name and email, and select your class at the online store. The complimentary class is only valid for 7 days.

 

The next step

 

During your evaluation it will be determined what the best starting point is for you.  Some people are recommended to begin with (or prefer to begin with) private sessions.  Most people can begin with  group classes at Level 1 or Special Back Class (SBC) for those with injuries and issues.
When you decide to join us, you can pay a drop in rate to attend classes, however, choosing a class package is the best value.

 

We have two packages well suited for new members;  they are shorter term and designed to give you time to get a sense of how Fitness Table will realistically fit into your schedule before you make a longer commitment.
Our two new member class packages are: 
– 6 weeks unlimited classes
– 12 weeks /12 classes (this gives you 12 weeks to use 12 classes however you like)
 
From there, we can help you select a one year option that is the best fit and best value for you. 
We look forward to meeting you, and we’re happy to answer any questions you have; simply give us a call at 403-245-9009 or click here to email us.

Fitness Table Method FAQ

Exercises on a table?

The Fitness Table Method, as the name suggests, refers to exercises done on a table specifically designed to be gripped in different ways that make it possible to shift the centre of gravity and work on the deep musculature. The table allows participants to lengthen and strengthen the muscles responsible for alignment in ways that no traditional training equipment does.

 

But why work on the deep muscles?

In the long term, static positions and lack of exercise results in a loss of muscle tone in the deep musculature and that can lead to chronic back and joint pain.

Who can practice the Fitness Table Method?

Anyone between the ages of 15 and 85 who has the desire to follow an original and focused method that will provide benefits day after day. The Fitness Table Method focuses on the quality, precision and intensity of the training rather than on the quantity of exercise.

 

Am I strong enough to practice the method?

This isn’t about employing Herculean strength, rather it is about isolating the deep muscles and doing exercises of increasing intensity. As one develops more control, the exercises make more demands on the muscle groups, which in addition improves posture and increases flexibility and precision in everyday movements.

What if I have injuries, will I be able to keep up?

The Fitness Table Method offers a great variety of movement, avoiding monotony and stimulating interest and imagination to develop greater motor control. Everyone works at his/her own rhythm while being encouraged to take on increasingly advanced exercises. Bad posture and stiff muscles can lead to chronic pain; when the body compensates for loss of flexibility it does not function as well. In addition to the strengthening exercises, our training includes exercises for flexibility; the different ways of gripping the table and the height of the Fitness Table allows for extended stretching.

"Fitness Table has helped me immensely as an elite level speed skater in recovering from a serious back injury”

Sarah Gregg, Speedskater

YOU'LL FEEL IT WORK YOUR VERY FIRST TIME!
We get to the core muscles other workouts never reach!


Love the classes. Top instruction. Great program

Fitness Table has been a big part of my medical rehab from abdominal surgeries. Being a pro golfer the core activation is extremely important for the swing and training at the Fitness Table has made me stronger than ever in the core area, and now after major swing changes I am now ready to contend on tour! I will continue to come to class when I am in town. I truly enjoy it I can highly recommend Fitness Table to anyone seeking better posture, core strength/stability and great workouts
Louise Stahle, Professional golfer, LPGA Tour

I have seen great results with my elite athletes.

Great program for elite athletes. Increased in size and strength. I could see the results in the lab through tests done by occupational therapy.
Bart Schouten, Coach, Speedskating Canada Team

Nothing short of incredible

After about 6 months...the physical results that I have obtained in that short time frame are nothing short of incredible. I am stronger mentally, through the core and overall body, my posture and flexibility have improved greatly and my continual pain demon is all gone. I have not been able to obtain this type of progress anywhere else and I was truly at a point of giving up.
Erica Yorga

I was able to heal a recurring hip flexor injury because of the Fitness Table

As a speed skater sprinter, I need my hips, glutes and hamstrings to be working together. I was able to heal a recurring hip flexor injury because of the Fitness Table program and 2013 was my best year yet!
Danielle Wotherspoon-Gregg, Long Track Speed Skater Sprinter

I can generate more power

The Fitness Table program definitely made me more stable. Core stability is really important for my sport; it helped the connection between upper and lower body so I can generate more power. The exercise program really seems easy but it isn't. It does much more than you think it will. You can work as hard as you can and get a lot more out of it in comparison to other programs that seem very hard but don't really do that much.
Jamie Gregg, Speedskater

Best workout I've ever had

I feel stretched out, stronger, taller and longer. Best workout I've ever had!
Diane Heming, School Principal

Better results that all other combined types of treatments for my chronic pain

I am a long time runner with no flexibility. I have had low back problems the last few years that have seriously curtailed other activities I enjoy. I have tried physiotherapy, chiropractic sessions, massage therapy and acupuncture, all with varying results but none with significant relief. I have been attending The Fitness Table classes on a regular basis for only three months and the results, I think, are better than all the treatments combined. Although the workouts are group sessions, the individual attention we each get from the instructors is remarkable as is their knowledge and understanding of our unique needs and limitations. My only regret is in not doing this years ago.
