Body weight training is not only functional but extremely effective if performed correctly. Stability training can be effective if performed correctly. However, usually these two forms of exercise are usually segregated. Not anymore! The Halo Trainer brings a new and improved efficiency to fitness. By simply combining adaptable stability techniques with body weight in various positions, Halo training offers an affordable progressive option for any level of fitness anywhere, anytime.
From classical mat to contemporary fusion Pilates, there is one thing in common: powerhouse engagement.
There is no mistake
about it, Halo Training is not Pilates but the very roots of many Halo exercises comes from the same place and for the same reason. Spinal health is central to any physical activity, from picking up a child to kickboxing in an MMA event.
We must understand that appropriate activation of our powerhouse mixed with purposeful motion through an intended range is the crux of maintaining a healthy spine. This is what Halo Training is all about. The Halo Trainer allows careful progressions of purposeful movements with variable stability challenges. Perform a side-lying front and back with the Halo and it won’t take long feel the effects of Halo training.
Rehabilitation is recovery. It is also the predecessor to fitness.
It is on the same continuum as athletic performance. Sometimes it is necessary to regress an exercise down to its fundamental roots-executing a motor plan with an intended result of movement. Whether we are using tactile cues, proprioceptive challenges, or equipment, the goal is the same—eliminate barriers to produce the intended function. The Halo Trainer’s ergonomic patented design helps alter angle of inclination, provides a stable platform in the middle of the room, controls stability challenge, offers piece of mind, and a whole lot more!
Halo Training currently consists of 4 levels of difficulty for body-weight training. We all know that people have various levels of
strength, flexibility, coordination, etc. so we believe that individuals should not be performing the same exercises. Although it is always to goal to increase the challenge, it is not always appropriate. Sometimes an exercise can be advanced and other times an exercise needs to be made a little easier to meet the specific level of the individual.
This is an entry level to fitness. If you are reasonably healthy but have not really engaged in much physical activity, this is the level for you.
This level is a great next step in your fitness journey. If you have already been working out consistently, then Level 2 might just offer the challenge you are looking for.
This level is very challenging. Although it is not the hardest level, proceed cautiously into level 3. Many exercises will require great core stabilization and upper/lower body strength to complete the challenges.
This level is reserved for the experienced exercise enthusiast or competitive athlete. Many of the exercises require very fine control and not only great strength, but significant power.
