START WITH THE BASICS

MONDAY Jan 5, 2015:
Well, here we are in 2015! Time to get back to normal life with a regular schedule.
What to talk about today? How bout getting back to basics…
A lot of people are starting their new eating and exercise plans. This is awesome and I am fully supportive. I also believe in doing things correctly.
Do yourself a favor before you start exercising…get someone to check your posture. If you already have pain issues… I can pretty much guarantee posture issues are present. These malalignments lead to muscle imbalance, joints problems and pain. Now, add exercise to the equation…more problems!
The fact of the matter is, fitness clubs do not have anyone on staff to address this issue. Even most personal trainers do not address posture. I never did either…until I learned FOUNDATION TRAINING! Posture is everything!
For most people, your pain issues can be resolved by postural corrections…then strengthening the weak muscles that were causing the poor posture. BOOM…now you feel better and can walk, run, play tennis, lift weights…whatever you want to do in better posture. You will be stronger, move better and feel better.
FOUNDATION TRAINING is an absolute must in any exercise toolbox. For those of you in Jackson, Ms and surrounding areas I can evaluate your posture and teach you Foundation Training. Everyone else…go to foundationtraining.com and click find a trainer. There are FT teachers all over the US and outside they US?
Being healthy is more than just how much weight you lift and being able to run a marathon! It starts with your frame! Take care of it. Foundation training will keep your frame healthy.

How did we go from the little kid with strong limber and active body…that could anything….to the tight, bent, hunched over adult?
I work with people everyday in this predicament. Most people answer- it’s part of getting old. I disagree with that answer. For most of us pretty much after high school we just quit moving thru full range of motion. We grew up…joined the work force and just quit moving fully. We wake up, go to work, sit at the desk or stand on our feet all day…then we go home tired. We eat some dinner then relax by sitting some more watching TV.
We have stopped using our hips like the young girl in the picture. We have stopped moving like a kid.
I know, we are bigger, heavier, slower, busy, tired, stressed, and so many other things…but we still have to take care of the best machine on the planet….our bodies!
This is where foundation training comes in. If you can still move like the young girl in the picture…foundation training will keep you moving that way even longer and stronger. If you are stuck like the second picture…foundation training is going to straighten you up and make you feel so much better. You are not going to know how severely that desk job is crippling you until you come take just one foundation training lesson. Just one lesson is going to make a difference!
I am in the “baby boomer” generation. I am making it my personal mission while I’m still here on the planet….to help as many people re-gain control of their bodies. Foundation Training will improve posture, balance, flexibility, mobility….improve your body’s frame!
