Functional Fitness- For Stronger Living
My daughter Zoe threw this at me not too long ago. Wowsers! This is what I preach to my clients every day!! I think she learned it at school. Perhaps evidence of taxes well spent. If you have a growth mindset you'll be open to new things which means you'll try. You'll be coachable which actually means that when you don't understand, agree with or necessarily want to do something, you'll listen to your coach and do it anyway.

On a daily basis I preach the importance of good posture. Posture is a habit our muscles mold into. Good posture doesn't just happen. We have to make a conscious effort to engage our core, pull our shoulders back and tuck our chin. It takes consistency to make it a habit. Here are a few tips to help realign during the day.

So I came across a video by a couple of physical therapists that explained how stretching is a waste of time unless it addresses a specific issue. These guys were thorough, had a bullet point reference on the matter and explained each point clearly. While I somewhat agree with the science of it all, I vehetmently disagree on the holistic side of it.

Nordic Walking allows people with fibromyalgia a safe exercise intervention that allows them to walk outdoors without having to avoid hills and increasing fall risk. Persons with fibromyalgia can enjoy the same improvement in strength, flexibility, aerobic capacity and perhaps postural control as can healthy persons according to Arthritis Research Therapy.
