Bootyful

(M)

Sunday: 9:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m.
Monday: 6:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.

Ocean Breeze Track & Field Athletic Complex, 625 Father Capodanno Blvd, Staten Island

Start Date:July 6, 2016
End Date:September 3, 2016
Age:Adult / Senior  

Maximize your glutes! Many people, even athletes, have weak glutes. Part of the issue is the amount of time many of us spend sitting (driving, stationary at work, etc). Sitting for extended periods of time can result in tight, shortened hip flexors and hamstrings, and weak glutes that fail to fire properly.  This class will use a variety of exercises that help firm and tone the specific muscles of the Gluteus Maximus and Gluteus Medius.  Exercise examples include one-leg squat, one-leg deadlift, sideways, front, and transverse lunges, side-lying hip abduction, and lateral band walks.
