During Coach2Edify’s first Enchanted Evening almost 3 years ago, my dear college friend from UCLA, Michael Kaliski, encouraged evolutionary human and designer of suspension training system OMGym, Sarah Kellette, to attend our event. Michael Kaliski, I will be eternally grateful for this!
When Sarah came to the event, we felt right at home with one another. When she showed me a postcard with the OMGym contraption, it was love at first sight! One year later, I attended her first OMGym Trainer Certification in Baltimore, Maryland. When she mentioned that I was the first Certified Trainer in Southern California, I knew that it was time to make the move to go independent from my 5-year-plus tenure at Equinox Fitness.
A few months later, we are running 11 classes of semi-private training in 3D Fitness using the OMGym as one of our key tools to activate energy systems. The OMGym has also been a very special way to introduce students to meditation through our signature Cocoon of Light Guided Meditations. These meditations use the OMGym’s womb-like hammock.
A few quotes from our students using the cocoon: “This is surreal,” “I don’t want to ever leave this place,” and “I’ve never ever felt anything like this before!”
Here are a few videos to show how the OMGym is used for various objectives, such as developing strength, cardiovascular endurance and flexibility. If you own a suspension training device and would like to learn new tricks, please feel free to e-mail me what kind of exercises you need to do in your system, and I’ll post some ideas! The OMGym is the only fitness-oriented suspension system of its kind in the marketplace with a tangible, scientific educational system and certification program administered by inventor Sarah Kellett herself.
