March 2022: March Madness and the AllCore360
The Workout for All
In the January blog, we talked about how Bluestem formed its roots in sustainability. We hope your New Year's resolutions have produced the shifts you were seeking. But so often we get caught up in the chaos of life, or we feel like we’ve tried everything and it isn’t working for us. If March winds haven’t brought the change you were hoping for, we would like to offer you a new alternative. We’ll explain how it works for this month’s blog. Most programs and therapies have their merits, but most programs and therapies don’t specialize in sustainability the way that we do.
We’re loving having the blog as a space to deep dive on all things Bluestem. As far as services, so far we’ve talked about the space pod, the marshmallow suit, and the electric taco. But have you seen the one where it looks like you might be prepared for a bungee trampoline at the mall?
We decided to go ahead and theme this month’s blog “March Madness” because this service might be the most crazy-looking one we have. Even crazier, and hear us out…
You can workout while sitting down.
Some of you might recognize this as another one of our core five services, the AllCore360!
The benefits of the AllCore360 are more intuitive if you understand how it works.
Here’s what to you can expect for an AllCore session:
You can wear any clothes for the AllCore, as you won’t need the range of motion typically associated with deep workouts. We’ve seen some folks rock a spin in business casual, but we recommend wearing comfy clothes, because you’ll probably break a sweat!
First, we’ll discuss your current activity level and assess the level of challenge you’re looking for in a workout. This will determine the angle for your spin and the accessories you’ll utilize while you spin. Spin angles range from 0 degree to 90 degrees. The smaller the number, the greater the challenge. (Shoutout to our resident Bluestem baddie Alyssa who we’ve seen regularly slaying those spins at 15 degrees.) At 0 degrees, you’re perpendicular to the floor! Those seeking the most intense challenge will use a resistance band to activate their upper back while they spin. A modification is placing your hands on the safety bar for extra support.
Next, you will sit in the AllCore chair, where we’ll help you get prepared and double check all safety measures.
Finally, activate your core and enjoy the ride! Your chair will lean back to the designated angle. Then, you’ll hold your posture while the chair spins 360 degrees, aka a full circle! The chair rotates five times clockwise and five times counterclockwise. Your goal: fight gravity, but don’t let it win! Around the second rotation, you’ll feel some deep muscles kick on. Embrace the shake! And be sure to let us know if you prefer a certain Spotify playlist to keep you pumped.
For all Bluestem services, the power of each device lies in its simplicity. Just one session provides multiple benefits in a short amount of time– benefits that would comparatively take many supplements and numerous other less potent therapies to accomplish. The AllCore 360 is no different. In 10 minutes, you’ll safely and easily exert 50 deep core muscles, including muscles in the legs, arms, and back. It would take a lot of postures and reps in the gym to accomplish a comparable result.
But don’t let the simplicity fool you!

Who can benefit from the AllCore? Well, just about anyone. AllCore is utilized in chiropractic and rehabilitation practices across the United States. The AllCore is great for people who have limited mobility, injuries, or find traditional exercise too taxing. Unlike most standard workouts, the AllCore activates your muscles without any strain on your joints. It meets you where you are, at the edge of your comfort level.
With regular use, you’ll quickly notice gains in strength, improved posture, and better balance. For your convenience, AllCore sessions come in packages of twelve. So, after your first visit, you can just walk right in and get started. We’ll track the change in your preferred angle as your strength improves.
For maximum benefits (hello, relaxation and recovery), you can stack an AllCore session and a Ballancer Pro session back-to-back.
It’s Wellness Made Simple – If you’ve got ten minutes, you’ve got time for this workout. Take your first spin for free and we think you’ll agree! After all, it’s the small actions we take daily that result in great change. Finally, if you have any questions, don’t forget, we offer free consultations to answer all your questions.
