Earthly Wellness-Creating Happiness, Strength, and Wellness from Within
Strengthening from the ground up is crucially important when considering clients that may have lower extremity injuries. Looking at the whole picture from foot to core helps us to gain a better understanding as to why there may be an imbalance occuring. This is why as a Barefoot Training Specialist, I look at my clients feet and the way they walk.

As we get older we may come to realize that we don’t bounce back or recover as quickly from an injury, or that the ‘spring in our step’ is not there any longer. Regular exercise definitely has a lot to do with how fast we recover, how vital we feel, and how we perform all those daily tasks and recreational activities. Just like financial planning for retirement, planning for a strong healthy body that can pull us through old age, living independent with a high quality of life also takes planning. And we need to be SMART about it.

I recently read a fantastic book: “BALANCE In Search of the Lost Sense” by Scott McCredie which reinforces my believe that our body is an amazing machine, a super computer that is capable for making adaptations to the challenges we place upon it even at advanced age(90+ years)!

I was excited to read another article this month by Wayne Westcott, Ph.D., in the 2nd. Quarter issue of ACSM Certified News about the benefits of resistance exercise for older adults and elderly individuals.

The Balance Guy
 Walking, running, going up and down stairs or playing your favorite sport. What do all these have in common? To some degree, all involve single leg balance. Putting one foot in front of the other.

Traditional training Vs. Integrated training.Most people are very familiar with traditional training…you know, go to the gym, lift some weights, maybe hop on the treadmill while watching the over-head TV. That certainly can work and we for sure have come a long way from the 1940’s where we were introduced to those vibrating belt machines women wore around their waist to giggle the “goo” off their belly. While traditional training works it is soooo one dimentional.

 TPI philosophy of the swing: “We don't believe there is one way to swing a club. We believe there are infinite numbers of ways to swing a club, but we also believe that there is one efficient way for all golfers to swing a club, and it's based on what they can physically do.”

Has this ever happened to you? You find yourself on a balance beam with a stadium packed with people anticipating your performance. You leap forward into a vaulted somersault and into your dismount…and you fall! The crowd moans as the seats empty and you hang your head in disappointment! Ya…that pretty much has never happened to me either but I have lost my footing in the snow and I have stepped off a curb awkwardly and almost fell. But, unlike our performer on the balance beam, I didn’t fall and that was because I was able to regain my balance.
