What style of classes and workouts do you offer?
BASIC workouts focus on what you need to stay strong and flexible for your today and your years ahead. We will work on strength, balance, flexibility, and breath expansion. While BASIC is considered to be at the beginner level, anyone can benefit because of the emphasis on functional, safe movements that is helpful to everyone, even fitter people!
FIT workouts raise your heart rate and expand your breath capacity with safe cardio movements, balance, and strength exercises. All FIT class are designed for moderate exertion. This is not about crazy cardio exercise. It’s about raising the heart rate and expanding lung capacity for several minutes without wearing ourselves out. Resistance band exercises usually are included for added benefit.
FLOW is similar to a yoga class. We begin with deep breathing and centering. Then we move to active flowing movements combined with breathing. Cues will be offered that keep you moving safely and efficiently. This class culminates with deliciously deep stretches. This class is at the intermediate level because of the active movements. However, anyone can do FLOW with proper modifications. Slow down and do only what feels good to your body.
STRETCH is a wonderfully relaxing experience includes range of motion exercises for joint health, deep stretches to improve mobility, and breathing exercises to relax tight muscles and reduce mental stress.
STRENGTH workouts utilize resistance bands, dumbbells, and body weight exercises to increase muscle tone and bone density. We begin with warm-up and then focus the rest of the class on getting stronger!
CORE workouts are shorter than other classes and focus on strengthening midsection, pelvis, and upper legs. You'll feel the burn in this fantastic workout!
CHAIR workouts are designed for anyone looking for a workout with the assistance of a chair. Some of the workouts are seated, while others include standing exercises with the chair for support.
Will the workouts be too easy or too hard for me?
One of the biggest benefits of being a StayAhead member is that you do your workouts in the privacy of your home rather than at a gym. Having privacy makes it easy to modify your workout. You can always make an exercise easier or harder. I will give you plenty of cues to help. You always can rest or stop your workout early if needed. Some StayAhead members are very active, athletic people who need more challenging functional workouts. Other members are less active and need gentler workouts. It’s all here!
What are the Programs all about?
Programs give you an added focus when you need it. By doing 15 to 25 minute workouts that focus on one topic, you improve rapidly. All Programs include educational videos as well as workouts specific to the topic. GO HERE TO VIEW THE PROGRAMS.
How do I access the workouts?
What if I don't know what workout to choose?
I got you covered! Every week I release a calendar with one or two workouts for the day. Just do one or both of the recommended workouts. That's it. GO HERE TO SEE THE CALENDARS. As you get more comfortable with the program, you may decide you want to browse the library for a specific workout or a workout that you've saved as a favorite. Or continue using the weekly calendars if you prefer.
What if I become a member but decide to cancel later?
First, you have 7 days to try the membership at no cost to see if it's a good fit for you. Cancel before the end of the trial and you won't be charged. Once you've become a member, you can easily self-cancel your membership in your member account area. See the member FAQs for simple cancellation instructions. Rejoin the program whenever you want at the current rate.

Videos aren't playing correctly for me. What do I do?
The company I use for video hosting has a very robust system that rarely goes down or has delays. It's likely that the problem is with your computer, your web browser, or your Internet connection. Old equipment, old browsers, and poor Internet connections often are the problem. If your equipment is relatively new (within 5 years) and up-to-date, try restarting your computer or clearing the cache on your Internet browser (INSTRUCTIONS HERE). If you try these suggestions and are till having video play issues, please let me know and I will reach out to my video hosting company.
