If you are interested in improving athletic conditioning, while focusing on stretching and strengthening the components of the body that are responsible for bringing about superior athleticism this is the program for you. Dwayne Mitchell, head basketball coach of the Monsignor Scanlan HS, states “ AB-Solute-Fusion gives athletes that certain ingredient that takes them to the next level”
Lancelot developed AB-Solute Fusion, which is a trademarked and registered workout program that is a hard-core-conditioning program that promotes self awareness of the correct alignment and posture of a body in motion. The program focuses on strengthening and stretching the components of the body that help to develop: dynamic balance, incredible coordination and explosive power, which are the keys to superior athleticism. His experiences of training to be a professional dancer and his career as a football player in Europe provided the underpinning for this program. Lancelot discovered that there are several common denominators between dance and athleticism. This revelation led him to develop the AB-Solute-Fusion workout technique.
Lancelot moved to Long Island from Brooklyn when he was seventeen. Sports and arts were important to him, Lancelot thought of himself as a football player but at the same time, couldn’t deny his passion for dance choreography and acting. His training in theatre, dance and acting with Mozell Entertainment Group prepared him to be the lead choreographer in the feature film “At The Top Of The Pyramid” where he had a role as well. The film is slated for release in theaters around the country in February 2015. Lancelot has had the opportunity over the years to work with Nikki Blonsky from the movie “Hairspray” as well as artist development with Madison Beer and Hip Hop artist Reyn, both artists have had music featured on MTV. Keeping fitness as an integral part of his day-to-day existence, it was suitable for Lancelot to create his own Trademarked and Registered program, AB-Solute Fusion.
Barbara Gerbasi longed to study ballet when she was young, but her dreams of donning a tutu and pink satin shoes were at odds with her mother, who preferred she learn piano. It wasn’t until she turned 16 that she enrolled in ballet, paying for classes with baby-sitting money.By the time she was married with children, there was little time for recreation. Shortly after she turned 60, though, she saw an ad in a local newspaper for ballet classes and decided to pick up where she left off. “I went to a ballet class during my lunch break at work,” recalls Gerbasi, who lives in Manhasset. “I was embarrassed, so I wasn’t going to tell my secretary — but then I thought, ‘What if something should happen to me? Someone should know where I am and what I’m doing.’ “A couple of weeks later, she summoned the nerve to tell her husband she had signed up for lessons. “He thought I was crazy and told me I was too old for ballet,” says the grandmother of six. “Friends said, ‘You’re going to do what?’ “That was 16 years ago. Gerbasi, now 76, is still dancing. “I am fulfilling my dream and doing what I always wanted to do,” says the retired public relations consultant and freelance writer Gerbasi and other older adults are taking their places along the ballet barre and living out their childhood fantasies. Once the province of the young, ballet is drawing late-life ballerinas and, to a lesser extent, male ballet dancers, who are returning to the art after a decades-long absence. Some, with no previous experiences, are attempting pliés and pirouettes for the first time.There is no statistical data on how many in the over-50 set are skipping yoga or the gym for ballet, but experts say the physically strenuous and mentally challenging pastime can improve vitality and provide a social outlet for older adults.Ballet is low-impact, aerobic, weight-bearing, great core training and great for joint mobility, because you work the muscle in numerous positions,” says Chris Freytag, an emeritus member of the board of directors of the San Diego-based American Council on Exercise. “And it’s great for brain fitness, because you have to connect your brain to doing a number of steps or sequences.
