Well we are just about to close out 2015. This was not a great year for me… I, for one am glad 2015 is in the books and ready to move on. Hopefully, 2016 will bring some joy.
Let’s talk about health/fitness goals since that’s what I do.
My focus will continue to be “bodywork”. Posture, movement mechanics, Foundation Training, corrective exercise, and floor work. I’m really liking the floor work! This involves crawling, rolling and animal movements. It looks easy…but is quite challenging!
This type of work is all about going back to basics. Getting our posture corrected is the first step. Our bodies are not going to function mechanically as well as they should if our posture is poor. Poor posture is epidemic and just about the leading cause of neck, shoulder and back pain.
The New Year is here. The best time to always start fresh…start over! Start with learning what some of your posture issues are and correcting them. I can promise you there is much more to it that just standing up straight. Some of the things I teach are quite challenging.
For those of us in our middle age years this type of work is going to “young you up”! I have been doing Foundation Training over 2 years now. My posture is great and my back is so much stronger and does not lock up anymore. My hips are much more mobile. I know how to perform movements safely. Something as simple as loading a dishwasher matters! There is nothing more important…at least for me than being able to move well and have my health as I age. I watch people all the time…the way they move, the way they stand, how their head sits on their head…a lot of these people will be much younger than me. They probably have no idea why they are walking slumped over or with their feet pointing outward?Posture can be improved and movement patterns can be corrected… You just have to know what the faults are in order to apply the corrections.
Start your new year by getting back to basics. Posture work, core work, movement pattern work, Foundation Training, some floor work and more! This is the best way to work out. It works for me….it can work for you!

Have a great day!
