Dynamic Pilates & Calisthenics
Mellikof Core Conditioning (Dynamic Pilates & Calisthenics) is a distillation of every training method I have ever learnt. From the time I spent with choreographers as a young musician, my years of martial arts, training, philosophies of five different schools of personal training that I studied under.
12,000 hours of time in the class, the gym, in the pool house or in the park where I have trained everybody from gold medalists to first division footballers, stunt women, to channel swimmers. Clients of all ages and walks of life.
I have always kept all useful training techniques, my experience has led me to meticulous observation, observing millions of repetitions of human movement, and I am checking for, three-dimensional symmetry dalliances even movements.
Whether the client is, standing, kneeling supine, prone, walking or running.
I am particularly focused on improving spinal mobility, in flexion, extension, rotation, lateral flexion, and the muscles that facilitate those movements.
My Exercises are all low impact or no impact focusing on bodyweight, flexibility, posture, ease of movement, core endurance stability, and generating deep abdominal compression.
My weird brain, as you will soon realise after a number of classes with me, allows me an unusual memory. I have a terrible short term memory and so if I need to remember anything I commit to long- term memory and so I am bursting with a irrelevant facts as well as every useful thing I have ever learnt from studying.
All muscles are held in a reciprocal balance with an antagonistic opposite. Any muscle that contracts, has one or more muscle lengthening to allow the movement. This balance is all over your body, like ropes pulleys and rigging on the masts of a ship.
My training System is designed to balance these musculoskeletal relationships, stretch and strengthen the entire body in a tough fun and safe circuit of the different zones of the body, each zone punctuated with the rest period. As you will see it really works on all ages shape sizes and sexes.
