Not all kids play sports

A lot of kids stay healthy and fit because they’re busy playing sports.

But not all kids play sports.

Nope, some kids are like our sons: book nerds who really love math, Greek mythology and video games!

That doesn’t mean they don’t want to be healthy and fit. And it certainly doesn’t mean their parents want them left behind when it comes to learning about their body, their strength and building confidence.

That’s why we offer an afternoon class 3x a week that focuses on just that: teaching them to build strength and confidence in their bodies as well as their ability to do hard things. That’s what we all want for our kids.

So that’s what we’re offering. A place they can grow as a young adult in their health, fitness and nutrition knowledge.

Join us Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays at 4pm at Ideal Balance – 8418 East Bay Blvd Navarre, Florida 32566.


Ideal Balance is The Life Coaching Facility in Navarre, Florida that focuses on Fitness, Family & Finance. We help our clients create the discipline & habits they need to strip off what’s holding them back from living the life God created them to live. We work with clients in 1-on-1 sessions in person and virtually as well as in Small Groups in Personal Training sessions, workshops and other events.

Move of the day: Frog Circles!!

Move of the day!

Slider Frog Circles!!

Challenge your core in a totally different way! If you don’t have sliders, use paper plates or towels on a hardwood/tile surface.

This move works your entire body: shoulders, hips, transverse abdominal and more WHILE forcing your body to use all the stabilizing strength it has! You’re also keeping the muscles under tension which means NO BREAKS. 😉

Start in plank position, toes on sliders. Tuck knees in, then slide outward and back until your feet come back together. Next, reverse the movement. Don’t allow your hips to dip or shoulders to slouch!

Give a try, start with ten circles back & forth. Tell us how they feel! See Less

Move of the day: Inchworms

Move of the day: Inchworms! 🐛

The inchworm is such a great move for total body strength & stabilization. You’ll find it appear pretty often in our warm ups at Ideal Balance because it gets the blood moving and heart pumping!

Start with feet hip width apart, then roll down and walk out on your hands to plank position, keeping abs in! Then walk hands back in toward feet and return to standing, smile at the top optional. 😉

This move strengthens, stretches and targets all stabilizing muscle and it targets the front (anterior chain) and back (posterior chain) of your body.

Give it a try!!!

Join us for small group personal training M/W/F @ 630/830/930!!

Move of the Day!

Dolphin push ups are the move of the day!!

This move is a “fun” twist on the traditional push-up while also incorporating some amazing yoga-style stretches. This move works core & back & shoulders & triceps & a little chest!! It’s so good!

Start in forearm plank and then, as if someone is pulling you straight up to the ceiling by your tailbone, push your weight back to dolphin pose. Be careful not to allow your hips to drop or your shoulders to sag!

Enjoy!!

Move of the day: Dips!

Move of the day: Dips!

Dips are not new but they are humbling if you do them right!

The further in your feet are, the easier they are.
The further out your feet are, the tougher they are.
Stack one foot on the other to make them super tough!

The point of this movement isn’t to bounce up and down, it’s to intentionally bend at the elbows, even if it’s just a few inches!

We did 80 today but we suggest you give 3 sets of ten a try! You’ll feel it in a few days in your triceps, anterior deltoids (back of shoulders) and rhomboids & lats (back)!
