In 2014, 15 years into being a personal trainer and group fitness instructor, Kellie began to feel achy and tight often. Low back pain was a constant annoyance. Knee pain, shin splints, and tight hamstrings were just a way of life of the athlete, she thought. It wasn’t until one day when a yoga instructor took her HIIT class and challenged her to take her yoga class just after, that Kellie realized discomfort wasn’t a “way of life”, but a lack of balance.
She began regularly pairing her HIIT classes with Power Yoga right after and found that her flexibility improved, her pain subsided, her core got stronger, and she performed better in both settings over time! However, she didn’t have two hours a day four to five times a week to keep this up!
What if she could focus on form but a bit more intense HIIT class for a shorter duration, immediately complemented or let’s say “balanced” by a yoga class. She could continue to get the calorie burn benefits of her high intensity while slowing moving into a lengthening yoga practice.
Voila! a Balance of Power and Mobility is born, but that wasn’t quite enough for BPM.
What is the song you listen to when you want to get pumped up?
The song you listen to when you want to settle down?
What’s your dramatic entrance song?
What is the song that reminds you of a warm memory?
What is the song that reminds you of heartbreak?
What’s your “It’s Friday night, I got the dream job, and me and my squad are going to turn up” song?
What is the song your heart sings? Your resting heart rate? Your heart rate when you’re running?
This is your BPM.The Beats Per Minute of your body.
It is the soundtrack of your life. This is BPM. It is infusing music with movement to create the soundtrack of your movie…and guess what…you’re the star.
