Happy Form Friday, Everyone! Today I will be discussing: Free Band Press & Hold Split Squats! This is an exercise that you must do both sides of the body; separately. Please make sure you address both sides. In this blog, and video, I will explain the left-side only.
Happy Form Friday, Everyone! Today I will be reviewing two exercises because they are essentially the same thing; one is simply a static hold and the other consists of repetitions.

Happy Form Friday, Everyone! Today, I will be showing you the Wall-band Sprinter Skip Lunge Hops! This is a SUPER fun exercise, but it can be a little awkward if you're not set-up right. Also, in the past, I have seen a little confusion. So, let's get you set-up!

Happy Form Friday, Friends! This week, I will review a Pure Form PFT exercise. It is the Abs Sweeps. This is a great core exercise! If performed properly, this exercise is deceptively hard.

Hey, Everyone! Happy Form Friday on this last day of November!
First off, I want to give a HUGE “Happy Birthday” to our West Sac. Head Trainer, Michael! If you haven't already, please reach out to him and wish him a VERY Happy Birthday! Michael is a vital part, of not only the West Sac. location, but to the entire PFT family. Happy Birthday, Michael!
Happy Form Friday, Everyone, on this Black Friday! I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving! At PFT, we want you to know that we are thankful for all of our members! You enrich PFT and you are the reason PFT thrives! Without you, there is no PFT. Thank you for blessing us!
This week, for Form Friday, I will review the single-leg Bench Hip (or butt) Thrusters! This is an EXCELLENT exercise for building your glutes!
If you are a PFT member, this is on our Friday's workout for the month of October. Let's get you set-up!
This is another amazing core exercise and is very similar to the Alternating Star Toe Touches. If you have not seen this instructional video, please search our blog section for it!
The Alternating Super Toe Touches is an exercise on PFT's Tuesday's and Thursday's workouts for the month of October.
Let's get you set up!
Happy Friday, Friends! This week, I will be going over Split Squats using a bench. If you are a Pure Form PFT member, this is on your Wednesday's workout.
Setting-up properly for Split Squats is one of the most important things for this exercise! It can mean the difference between staying injury-free, or causing injury. Let's go over this together, so you are set-up for success!
You can work out, or you can work out with Pure Form. Proper form prevents injury and lets you get the most out of the effort you're putting in. Learn the right way to do the Single Arm Free-Band Bent-Over Row from Renée, our trainer at PureForm PFT West Sacramento.
In case you’ve ever wondered how to effectively increase your flexibility without spending an extra hour in some other class.
Before you stretch, make sure you are warmed up! Never stretch a cold muscle. If you include this stretching routine after every workout, it will help!
First off this is active/resistance stretching. This type of stretching is done in a way that allows your body to stretch itself as you push and pull the muscles.
We do a lot of core work here at PFT! In fact, even when we aren’t doing a specific core move, we are still working our core for stability during 100% of all the moves at PFT!!! And often times you will hear your trainer saying pull your belly button toward the floor or “tuck it”.
So today I want to talk about two things: The Belly Scoop: how to do it, and how to incorporate it into everything we do at PFT.
Let’s talk about ‘core’ work!
Do you know what your core is? Do you know how to activate it? The answers to these questions are important because they are the difference in getting an amazing workout, and getting what you think is an amazing workout when actually you’re just flailing around for 20 seconds.
Have you ever wondered, "why" we do "what" we do at PFT? Is there a method to the madness?!!! You bet your core of steel and sweet biceps peaks there is!
When it comes to building muscle, there are three proven mechanisms for hypertrophy (enlargement of muscle tissue). All of which, can work together to build that jaw dropping, knee buckling and well earned aesthetic masterpiece.
What makes Interval Training so Awesome and why is starting at the “Beep Beep” so important?
“3,2,1… GO!!!” How many times have you heard that at PFT?! Just think how many times your trainer has said that?! Well there is a reason we count down so you are ready to GO right when the Beeper Beeps LOL!
Push-ups and rows are a staple in any workout program. Done correctly, both of these exercises can potentially build strength, endurance, and power in the upper body. In the lateral push-up, one side (the working side) performs about 90% of the work, while the other side (the non-working side) really only helps to keep you stable through the movement. When these exercises are combined, the additional challenge of core stability is presented. However, to get the maximum benefit, both of these movements must be performed with Pure Form in a coordinated effort.
Hey PFT Family! I just wanted to share with you the proper form and cues you can give yourself for a couple great core moves we are doing this month at PFT!
The “Regular” and “Dark” Spidey. These functional and focused core moves are great ways to add stability, form and taper to your torso. We all like the thought of a trim waist and lean hips right?! This move, done correctly, will help you strengthen your core for better function in ALL your movements, not just your PFT moves!
