Gym Souplesse is a class which consists of stretching and strengthening the muscles.

The exercises consist of:

  1. Stretching the muscles in static positions (as opposed to exercises consisting of movements). These static stretching positions have to be held for some time as to stretch the muscle to a maximum. This increases the flexibility in the muscles which then causes the muscle to be able to stretch a little further during the next exercise.  
  2. Strengthening the muscles to prevent possible damage.


The main goals of Gym Souplesse are: preventionperformance and mental strengthening

  • Prevention: Stretching prevents internal muscular and articular injuries. These injuries are usually due to a sudden intense effort, this can be a severe shock (collapse, stroke) but it can also be caused by a sudden exertion of muscle without the proper warm-up. This causes the muscle to be under a sudden severe tension and stress hence the injury. Since stretching trains the muscles to undergo a certain amount of tension, it can prevent injuries.
  • Performance: The mechanical performance is enhanced by the fact that the muscles of the practitioner are more supple, elastic, and stronger. In this way, it can help wall climbers to better reach the higher stones, or can a martial arts practitioner kick higher, can dancers better control their very lean movements, etc.
  • Mental Strengthening: The mental performance is enhanced by the fact that during the course the emphasis is laid on the body. This causes the athlete to automatically focus on his breathing and the movement of his body rather than the daily stress. 

To achieve the best result, this class should be attained several times a week. Please consult our class schedule.
