Getting Back To Basics

Wed. Dec 30, 2015

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!

Contact me with any questions you may have.  

Have a great day!

TBMM: CORRECTIVE EXERCISE SPECIALIST

Tue 1/27/15
Excited to have finished my class from THE BIOMECHANICS METHOD.
This certification enables me to better evaluate posture and muscular imbalances in the body. TBMM also helps me better to prescribe corrective exercises, stretches etc. to help the affected areas.
This certification will be the perfect compliment to my FOUNDATION TRAINING work.

Working with clients to improve posture, muscle imbalance and overall movement patterns is awesome.

If you have body pain, back pain, poor posture, elevated shoulder, tight hips, tight hamstrings, weak ankles and other body issues….contact me. Sometimes just taking a good look at your body and your habits…then applying some changes will make a world of difference.

We are meant to move! We all have to eat, sleep, work and play in the body we were given. If it is broken down a little bit…let me help you rebuild…it is not to late!

READY OR NOT HERE COMES 2015!

Wed. 12/31/14:
It’s just about a wrap for 2014!
It’s been a pretty good year…I have nothing to complain about! I’ll just work to make 2015 even better.
The plan for 2015 is to keep promoting a healthy lifestyle for everyone…especially for those who have more trouble. I will also continue to write articles that include healthy tips, tricks and plans.
I will have a huge focus on posture and body awareness! This is the foundation for everything! Posture has to be solid…or trouble looms ahead. There will be lots of FOUNDATION TRAININGS success stories and pictures. I love FT…it works, it’s a “go to” pain management tool and it can be done anywhere/anytime.
I am adding corrective exercise to my arsenal also. I am presently in the middle of a class for certification. I hope to have that finished late January maybe February.
Of course, after all that posture work/body awareness work we still have to work out! I am still a fan of the 15-30 minute total body type workouts. I think they are the best! Don’t worry, there will still be some weight lifting.
I thank everyone who reads my site and all the clients I work with. Helping others to learn how to better take care of themselves is very rewarding and it keeps me doing the right thing also.
Everyone be safe tonight and let’s make 2015 the best year ever!
Movement Matters!
