FOUNDATION TRAINING PAYS DIVIDENDS

Friday 11/14/14:
POSTURE speaks volumes. Everyone knows how you carry yourself when you walk into a room or a stage speaks volumes. If you want people to listen to you… Stand tall, be positive, carry yourself with confidence. People with good posture tend to be confident anyway. People who stand tall with an open chest and eyes looking straight ahead are just waiting to answer a question, solve a problem, or offer advice.
Face it, in this day and age most of us sit at a computer a lot, or sit behind the wheel of a car a lot. We all stare at our cell phone no telling how many times a day. These activities coupled with gravity are crippling so many people. We have to pay attention to what we are doing and how we are doing it. I was in the same boat with everyone else. I did not realize how my everyday life was contributing to my back pain issues. I have always been very active, keep my weight under control, and pay attention to my body. I just always had a back ache. I just accepted it as being active and aging. I just thought, I would rather have a back ache from being active than sedentary!
Enter FOUNDATION TRAINING! What I have learned from FT has changed everything. First, my back does not hurt anymore. Second, health and fitness is so much more than jogging and lifting weights. True health and fitness starts with knowing your body. Knowing your posture, knowing how you sit, stand, walk, just move in general. Knowing your habits…
It does you absolutely no good to exercise with poor posture and poor movement patterns! Granted, it is still exercise… You may have gotten your heart rate up, but you are accentuating your weaknesses and imbalances. This will catch up with you.
Take the time to learn FOUNDATIONS TRAINING! You will learn about your individual posture and movement. You will be able to apply FT to your daily life at your desk. You will improve your jog, your workout, your performance in competitions. Back pain can/will just about go away. You will feel better. Your confidence will return.
FOUNDATION TRAININGS is medicine. Take a dose a day and you will reap the benefits.
Contact me for a session to evaluate what you are doing now. After all, if you do not know what you are doing you can not make adjustments.

HABITS AND. CONSISTENCY!

Sat 1/4/13:
Looking forward to Foundation Training class this morning. There is an 8:30 class for those who are already using FT. They”ll get new exercises today. The 9:45 class is for newcomers. I love teaching the newcomers.
How is everyone’s new year starting out? Hopefully, new habits are be implemented and everyone is on their way to feeling better.
Let’s talk about the habit you have changed. For example, lets say you are going to start a to do list for each day. This a great idea. I, myself like lists and like to check off things once they are completed. Well, when are you going to compile this list? Whenever you chose to make the list is fine…the important part is to try to do it pretty much at the same time every day. This will re-enforce the habit and promote consistency. I know it does not seem that important….but it works. Consistency=habit. Remember, today is only Jan 4… but it’s time to get the new habit chosen and implemented.
I’m off to get ready for Foundation Training!!! Love that stuff and it has really made a difference.
I’ll leave you with a quick workout.

Take 10 minutes and do the following circuit as many times as possible.
1. Body weight squat- 10 reps
2. Renegade row- 6 rep per side
3. Skater Hops- 6 per side
4. Push-ups- 6 reps
5. Jump Jacks-10 reps

Enjoy and GEAUX SAINTS!!!!!!

MAKING NEW HABITS

Mon 12/30/13:
Here we go…last couple of days for 2013! Let’s get busy and plan a strategy for changing in 2014. The first thing to do if you are serious about making positive changes in 2014 is to end some bad habits and implement some new better habits.
First, make a list of better habits you would like to implement. Write them down. Now pick one new habit to implement. Work on this one until you get it down before adding the next one. Be consistent with your new habit. For example: if your new habit is to have one cocktail a day instead of 2 or more. Say, I will have 1 cocktail as soon as I get home only. Don’t trick yourself and make it a double….lol! Habits help keep us on track…they help keep me balanced and in control.
Anyway, that’s the first tip for the new year….make better habits. What are some of your habits going to be? Let me hear from you.

Oh by the way…SAINTS made the playoffs!!!!!
