What is Slak CLE all about and why should you train with us?
Slak CLE is a human performance gym that primarily uses balance training equipment to target areas of the brain that deal with movement, coordination and overall brain and body performance.
What we know.
We have found, through scientific research and first hand experience, that balance training increases your ability to not only function physically better but mentally as well.
Dr. Will, Co-owner of Slak, first began slacklining in 2018 to help balance his pelvic muscles after a debilitating back injury that left him in pain for over 5 months.
After utilizing the slackline almost daily for about a 4 weeks, the symptoms of his back pain went away. After a few more weeks, he began to notice his athletic ability was increasing and he also began to notice that his thoughts and behavior began to change as well.
This led Dr. Will down the scientific research rabbit hole of balance training that uncovered the positive effects of balance training on the physical body as well as the brain.
What we found.
What he found was amazing, balance training actually caused neurological and physical changes in those who regularly challenged their balance system.
There are MRI findings of study groups who balanced trained for 4-6 weeks and showed an increase in areas of the brain that deal with memory and cognition as well as a reduction in the areas of the brain that deal with stress.
The science says that balance training increases physical ability, coordination, muscle activation, joint stabilization, strength and another fascinating discovery is that it also calmed the brain which correlated with a decrease in stress, anxiety, depression and also increased brain function that involved memory, learning and reasoning abilities.
This discovery astounded us and we believed, because of the science and our own experience, that balance training was the key in developing a better brain and in turn a better body.
We immediately knew that everyone should be balance training in some capacity on a regular basis and that that is why Slak was born.
Balance at the core.
At Slak CLE balance training is at the core of everything we do.
How we do it.
We utilize a special device called a "slackline" that challenges your balance beyond any device currently being used by anyone out there today.
We also utilize other forms of training to completely train the body. We incorporate speed, agility, strength and coordination techniques and devices to effectively coordinate and condition the body while also increasing overall brain and physical health.
The results are a more balanced and dynamic brain and body that is capable of doing far more physically and mentally than a "non-balanced" brain and body.
YOU BECOME A BETTER HUMAN
