SOCIETY TODAY AND POSTURE

Fri July 10, 2015

POSTURE is an under-appreciated aspect of health you can do something about. Now’s the perfect time for a posture reality check. Begin working to improve  and start standing and sitting taller to look better and feel younger.”

FOUNDATION TRAINING can greatly improve posture.  The society we live in today is anteriorly dominant.  The front of our bodies are stronger or more dominant than the back of our bodies.

Humans have always fought the battle with gravity.  Gravity pushes against all of us everyday…that will never change.  What has changed is that humans do not move as much.  We stay sitting at a desk all day.  We are on a computer device all day long.  Kids carry 25 pound backpacks on their developing frame all day long.  It is nice in our country to have all the luxury, technology and convenience that we have…but it is making us lazy.  We do not use our brain like we used to or our bodies.

When I was a youth I knew all my friends phone numbers…I have an I phone now…I don’t have to remember anything.  As a kid so many of us walked to school…some quite a distance carrying a few school books.  Now, those back packs look like kids are gonna climb a mountain and be gone a week.  We have technology everywhere…we sit and work on computers all day every day… This folded position is wrecking havoc on our spine, our muscles, our necks and shoulders.  These continuous postural habits are going to catch up with everyone.

Couple our technological lifestyle with the forces of gravity…so many of us are destined to be bent over, develop adult scoliosis, have forward head syndrome, muscles weakness and joint pain.  So many of us will run to the doctor for relief.  You will get a shot, or a pain pill/muscle relaxer, or even a few weeks of therapy.  Wow…do people really think all these choices are going to fix years of poor habits?  Doctors help people with sickness…not poor posture and muscular weakness…and the pill he gives you won’t either.

Learn FOUNDATION TRAINING!  

Take a few sessions from a certified instructor.  Employers, offer FOUNDATION TRAINING at your business.  A FT workshop will be so beneficial for employees.  Coaches, have a FT instructor come in and teach the athletes proper stretch/strength techniques.  This will reduce injury and improve performance.  Seniors,  the seniors can improve balance, strength and mobility with FOUNDATION TRAINING.

Advil, cortisone shots, will not “fix” pain problems period.  Start taking care of your body…make some postural adjustments, lengthen and strengthen with FT…and in most cases you can manage your own pain issues.

Have a great day!

APPLYING FOUNDATION TRAINING TO YOUR DAILY LIFE

Monday 9/8/14:
Foundation Training can be life changing! Foundation Training should be applied in all your movements through the day. The awareness you learn from taking a class or a few private lessons can literally change your life…especially if you are in pain. The awareness of your own body and the way you move your own body are invaluable. This awareness leads to the ability to make corrections in everything you do…from watching TV, to working in the yard, playing sports, or just the simple act of picking something up.
Invest in a few lessons…most people will get the basics down in 3 or 4 lessons and will have invaluable knowledge about their OWN body. We all have our own unique body with our own unique movement patterns. All of us have muscles imbalances and some incorrect movement patterns. Baby boomers…start now with some corrections so that moving into those senior years keep you as active as ever! Seniors…if you feel your balance is a little shaky…learn Foundation Training! I promise your balance will get better and you will get stronger.
Contact me for a session. Click on the FT tab to order a instructional DVD if you do not have a teacher in your area. Foundation Training will make the perfect Christmas gift. The gift of health is an excellent choice…and to have a healthy body is a gift!
APPLY FT TO EVERYTHING YOU DO…EVERYTHING!

TODAY AT TRAK…FOUNDATION TRAINING

Sat 10/12/13:
Today is my demonstration date for FOUNDATION TRAINING at TRAK on Lakeland Drive. FOUNDATION TRAINING is a series of exercises designed to lengthen and strengthen the posterior chain of muscles (that is your backside). FT is awesome and it works!
If you have back pain FT is going to give great relief. Once you learn the exercises properly…just do some everyday…and your body will feel better and you’ll move your body properly. The general population has back pain mainly from improper movement patterns developed from poor posture, injury, lack of use, weight gain, to much sitting, lack of exercise….we can correct a lot of these issues thru FOUNDATION TRAINING. FT will make you aware of how you are sitting, standing, walking, squatting, bending over…
Foundation Training will help you conquer back pain. FT will help an athlete perform better. FT will help a senior who’s a little unstable get stronger and not be afraid of falling. FT will help those of you with desk jobs who sit hunched over a computer all day.
FOUNDATION TRAINING is the most valuable tool I have come across in the fitness industry…and I have been around quite some time.
This is you opportunity to come hear what it is about, feel an exercise, and leave me your contact information. Hopefully, I’ll have a class or 2 started in November.
