Hengameh’s Core Beliefs:

Core strength and proper form is my objective with every client. I would like everyone to first learn how to become and stay strong from the inside. After that, we can concentrate on how you look on the outside. If we compare the human body to a big beautiful building, it can last forever if the frame is strong. If the frame is weak, everything will crumble around it. Strong bones and a solid core will keep your body fit and healthy.

Muscle Fibers need to be worked in different ways to maintain its flexibility and strength. Breathing is also very important. I focus on these points because through breathing muscles receive oxygen. And through the oxygen, muscles become flexible and ready for the exercise. This prevents injury.

“Put your brain on your muscle,” is what you will hear me say to you all of the time.

And especially, remember to maintain form: Keep your back straight, abs tight, shoulders back, joints soft, look at the horizon ahead of you and don’t forget to breathe! Imagine what you want to be and you can achieve it! But, most importantly, have fun and keep a smile on your face. A positive attitude is priceless when exercising.
