It is especially safe for teenagers as it focuses on core alignment while not overloading joints and connective tissues.  More information — www.method10533.com, or (914) 693-6020.

ProBody is a revolutionary new personal training and neuroacoustic therapy center for mind*body fitness. Inspired by a true passion for weight training, its many attributes, and its incredible effectiveness in sculpting the body while building mind and spirit, ProBody’s unique environment blends upscale “spa” with hardcore “gym”. ProBody sets itself apart as the first fitness center to combine an all-encompassing workout with a spa-like reward — neuroacoustic therapy. Touted for its ability to reduce stress and lower heart rate, neuroacoustic therapy uses select sound waves scientifically orchestrated into “music” that stimulates the brains’ neuro transmitters and triggers the relax response.
