5 Hot Workouts to Try
4. Grace Somatomorphic Technique (GST). Do you take care of your fascia? Can you even point to your fascia? Your fascia is the connective tissue that holds together your muscles, nerve endings and blood vessels. After years of dance left GST founder Anna Rahe in constant pain, she began her search for a form of fitness that would ease her suffering. Through spring equipment, she discovered the fascia could be targeted to not only rehabilitate the connective tissue but also to reshape it to in turn reshape the contours of the body.
“People notice an immediate improvement to chronic aches and pains,” says Rahe.
What to expect: Here’s the kicker: unlike traditional fitness modalities that require constant maintenance, Rahe claims that the dramatic physical changes you will experience in your definition from GST method are permanent, and that the actual structure of the body is changed forever.
“Our proprietary technique eliminates excess ‘energy’ congestion inside muscle tissue that is responsible for thickness, bulk and under- or overdeveloped muscle tissue related to cellulite,” says Rahe.
What you’ll need: Those interested in trying GST can choose from an apparatus-free movement class or an equipment class that uses springs with handles as resistance.
Where to find it: Currently, there is one studio location in Hollywood, but you can purchase GST DVDs and home equipment.
