Alisa works with Lauren Fendrick, a pro-beach volleyball player. Using a full studio of apparatus, Alisa takes Lauren through a workout designed with her specific body needs in mind, including: connecting her center to her upper and lower body and radiating that strength out to her limbs for more explosive power; addressing her hyper-mobility; balancing out her strength across her body since her sport overuses her dominant arm and leaves her a bit lopsided; strengthening the sides of her hips and glutes because her quads tend to overwork; opening her chest to balance the rolling forward of the shoulders and upper back that is necessary for passing the ball; reminding her to use her breath fully; and avoiding movements that overflex her delicate knees. Alisa uses the Reformer, Ladder Barrel, Pedi Pole, Breath-a-cizer, and Cadillac to create a complete workout that is unique to Lauren's body.

    I really enjoy watching the videos of real people with real needs and always learn something I can translate to my own clients, however subtle – thank you! Also beneficial to see how you used the whole studio. More sessions like this please – perhaps with a really short person…?

    Liked the cues for working with someone who is taller than average.

    Great example of how to work an athlete – thank you. I am learning so much about both the Classical Method and about special populations that I don’t have the chance to teach. Cheers Pilatesology!
