TAB FITNESS. You're always welcome!
Yeah, it's cold outside. But let's keep those good intentions we had at the beginning of the year alive! So, what can be done to maintain your motivation and keep personal goals on track? On those sunny days in February get out and start moving. Ski, skate, go tobogganing with the kids. The key to fighting the February blahs is tapping into that child-like spirit deep inside. Let's get your mojo flowing by stimulating your body to MOVE.

At TAB, we stress the key to a good fitness program is fun. Good vibes will keep you happy, and provide consistency. Plus, the Tabbies around you will definitely feed you the motivation you need to continue. I personally know what it is like to feel the February blahs, so I hope to keep encouraging all of you to stay on track.

TAB's AB REHAB, is what ballet is to dance: it's sets the foundation for everything else. It reinforces proper alignment and helps your body move more affectively.

What you learn in Ab Rehab makes all other TAB classes more effective. Knowing where you feel an exercise working is an important gauge of your own personal improvement. Being able to focus and feel the muscle is key to reminding your body how to move. Balance, power, and strength are out of reach without understanding how to manipulate your centre or core.

So, what is 'the core'?
We hear this word being tossed around repeatedly. We're talking about more than just your abdominal wall. This is your powerhouse, the midsection of the body. It includes the abdominal wall, but also the back, hamstrings, quads and glutes. So much strength and power can come from this area. Attach breath, and go even further!

Ab Rehab covers all of these areas but focuses on the abdominal wall. Not just the beauty of the rectus abdominus (six pack), but also the deeper muscles— transverse abdominus, lower abdominals, obliques and pelvic floor.

The deeper muscles are the hardest to 'wake up' without turning on surrounding muscles like the hip flexors and glutes. Ab Rehab teaches you how to find these muscles and rediscover the power in your middle.
