Friday 11/8/13: Yea….Friday is here. Another week has come and gone. Haven’t been on the blog this week…sometimes a person just needs a break. Actually, I have been having trouble being inspired. Yesterday after teaching a new client some Foundation I became re-inspired. This particular client, as we were working reminded me of why I love Foundation Training. To see her improvement in one week, and to see the light bulb come on for her was so awesome. Foundation Training is all about improving a persons life!
The story goes like this… This is a 60 plus year old women with chronic back pain and extremely tight back muscles. She is a well known surgeon and travels extensively. A very caring person who has really never slowed down to take care of herself. She was referred to me by a mutual friend that knew FT was supposed to help with back pain.
After our first session I was thinking.. man I’m really going to have to go slow. Basically, all we could get down in that first meeting was to stand tall, work on breathing, arm/hand placement io order to pull shoulder blades in place, and very gently get hips to barely push back and get weight on heels. That’s it! I texted her everyday….do your homework! She assured me she was working on those things thru-out her day.
Yesterday, was our second meeting. OMG, the improvement was astonishing. Now, I’m INSPIRED! She stated, I can really feel something is working. I didn’t hurt this week like I usually do. I was so excited for her.
So, we start out session. We go thru what she did all that week…I tweaked things for her, so she could feel things better. Then we moved on to actually getting into a founder with the aid of a table. She did Awesome! She worked the whole hour with no muscles trying to spasm, and no chair breaks! She is becoming AWARE of her body. Anyway, I gave her the homework assignment and off to the airport she goes.
I have helped people exercise and loose weight for many years and I still love to do that, but helping someone get out of pain with just a few exercise is really pretty Awesome too. Just the simple pose below can help relieve back pain.
Just wanted to share. Everyone have a great weekend! Football and golf for me!



  1. Great Story, I hope more people will be INSPIRED by Foundation Training, Truly this is a new exercise that can benefit so many with muscle and structural discomforts.
