Q. Will that Harrison Hammock hold me?

A. Yes, it can easily hold over 1,000 lbs so it will support you!

 

Q. I haven't done yoga before. Will I be able to do this?

A. In a word, YES! No prior yoga experience is necessary. We have small classes with certified teachers who give you individualized attention to ensure proper form. The exercises and pace of the exercises can be modified to fit your needs, goals and fitness level.

 

Q. I've done yoga in the past and I used to exercise regularly but I’m pretty out of shape now. Will I be able to do AntiGravity® Fitness?

A. Yes! AntiGravity® Fitness is open to all Levels. Everyone must take the required FUNdamentals of AntiGravity® Fitness class as a prerequisite to all other classes. As the classes progress, the exercises and pace of the exercises can be modified to fit your needs, goals and fitness level. However, if you are coping with an injury, it is always best to have your doctor’s consent before embarking on any new exercise program or therapy.

 

Q. I have bad knees and/or back problems. Other exercises exacerbate my pains. How will AntiGravity® Fitness feel on my aches and pains?

A. AntiGravity® Fitness allows you to be in complete control of your own resistance, including how much weight and pressure you put on your joints. The Harrison Hammock allows for equal distribution of body weight and therefore helps relieve the pressure normally placed on your knees and back.

 

Q. I’m pregnant. Can I take this class?

A. Yes, you control the movements in your hammock so you can certainly choose to do more or less based on your size and your needs. Of course, we recommend you speak to your Doctor or midwife if you have any specific concerns.

 

Q. Can my child take class with me?

A. Yes! Here at Imagination Place, we offer the premier Kid's AntiGravity® Fitness program. We offer parent-child classes ages birth-five.

We offer drop-off classes for children ages 5-15.

Children ages 12-15 may attend with a parent/caregiver if they have yoga, gymnastics, sports, cheerleading, or other fitness demanding experience. Children 16 and up may attend without an adult. All children need a parental signature on their waiver release form.

 

Q. I’m an athlete, is AntiGravity® Fitness a good option for Cross–Training?

A. Absolutely! AntiGravity® Fitness is a complete total body workout that strengthens core and increases overall agility. You will find that adding in a regular AntiGravity Fitness class once or twice a week will improve your performance in your other athletic endeavors. The utilization of the Harrison Hammock allows overworked muscles to relax as secondary muscles take over to lengthen and strengthen - therefore maximizing your workout.
