Train Like a Pro at Botsford Center for Health Improvement's Sports and Performance Day

Novi, Mich. (March 19, 2010)---Do you want to improve your strength and flexibility in time for your summer activities? Train like the athletes do at the Botsford Center for Health Improvement’s Sports and Performance Day on Saturday, March 27 from 10 a.m. to noon. This free event is open to members and guests and will include demonstrations of the Botsford Center for Health Improvement’s new training tool called the TRX Suspension Trainer. Also available at this event will be high intensity boot camp style exercises to prepare for spring and summer sports and access to all fitness equipment and classes. 
 
The TRX Suspension Trainer is the latest in innovative training tools used by elite athletes and novice enthusiasts. Weighing less than two pounds, TRX delivers greater performance and functionality than large exercise machines. Monica Pagels, manager at the Botsford Center for Health Improvement, says, “The TRX builds strength, flexibility and core stability using just one strap and your own body weight. It offers hundreds of functional exercises that can easily adjust to all fitness levels. Our Sports and Performance Day will give people the chance to see how this system works, test it out or just watch.” 
 
For details on this event or the TRX, please call (248) 473-3100 or visit www.botsford.org/bchi. More than a health club, The Botsford Center for Health Improvement offers a comprehensive wellness approach integrating fitness, lifestyle and behavior management with medical and clinical practices.
