Barry Method Workout DVD For The Total Trainer Is As Innovative As Its Creator
Once in a great while, somebody comes along that thinks outside the box. Sometimes it’s a stubborn desire to do things differently that leads them there, but in Colette Barry’s case, thinking outside the box became a necessity.
Colette Barry was born with a hearing impairment that affected her sense of balance. So it shouldn’t be surprising that she went searching for ways to maximize balance in a way that could improve every area of her life, not just physical, but emotional and spiritual as well.
What she found in her 25 years as a massage therapist and certified yoga instructor is that proper balance begins with The Five Anchors:
- The Heart Anchor (at the base of the breastbone)
- The T7 Anchor (at the base of the shoulder blades)
- The Pubic Anchor
- The Chin Anchor
- The Focal Anchor (looking inward)
With the five anchors as her starting point, Colette Barry was able to formulate a fitness regimen that produces perfect alignment and a well-centered body. Colette calls this remarkable fitness breakthrough The Barry Method, and after 15 years of development, has found the missing link to her puzzle: The Total Trainer .
In her new workout DVD, The Barry Method Workout For The Total Trainer, Colette shows you how to use the Total Trainer’s gravity gliding system to optimize the functional stability of multiple muscle groups. This creates greater efficiency, movement, and strength.
But what makes The Barry Method unique is that it incorporates yoga, wall yoga, Pilates, and Colette’s groundbreaking Muscle Memory Concept ™ for optimum body composition and balance. The gravity gliding system of the Total Trainer fitness machine allows you to use your own body weight to maintain your center of balance during movement.
By combining The Barry Method and the Total Trainer, Colette has reduced the risk of injury during workouts. When you rest your body upon the glideboard, you actually reduce the load on the skeletal structure of your body, not increase it as you would with weights. This maximizes muscle use with minimal joint and back compression.
The result of this marriage between The Barry Method and the Total Trainer is a healthy and holistic workout regimen that anyone of any age or state of fitness can enjoy. Many physical therapy and rehabilitation programs use The Barry Method to speed the recovery of patients with knee and shoulder injuries. NFL players and professional athletes have also incorporated Colette’s program into their fitness routines. Now it’s available to you in this comprehensive workout DVD that includes both a core workout and a strength and conditioning program.
“Fitness isn’t just about building muscle strength and size,” said Colette. “It’s also about developing a solid core through proper breathing, balance, flexibility, and alignment. By focusing on all of these elements, you create smart, more efficient muscles. And you connect the mind, body, and spirit…three essentials for any healthy lifestyle.”
