How It Works
During the four weeks, I prescribe a customized training program based on your current health and functional status. Via my branded app, you’ll follow the exercise prescription and can communicate with me in real time. You receive on-demand customized workouts, and you and I will track your progress.
If you’re not sure of the prescribed exercises, a video of each exercise demonstrates the movement with the correct form and posture.
Your customized program works with your schedule, yet it is interactive, personal, and an accelerated training program.
Dynamic Core Training
If you were to ask me how you could quickly reverse the aging process, I would suggest you start by developing your core.
Your core muscles are not just your abs. They are all the muscles that connect your upper body to your lower body, so in addition to your abs, your core includes the muscles of your back, hips, and gluteals (buttocks).
Your core is the key to your functionality. Without a strong core, you lack the ability to balance, stand, and move. If one part of the body isn’t working efficiently, another part will have to pick up the slack. That weak link will eventually cause an injury.
Little Things Can Cause Back Pain
I often hear, “I hurt my back. All I did was bend over to pick up the newspaper.” You don’t have to be lifting something heavy to injure your back. The body sags in response to gravity, which adds a tremendous load to your back.
Poor posture, prolonged sitting, inappropriate or unsafe exercises (like sit-ups), and excess abdominal fat promote a weak core and can lead to long-term injury and pain.
To be more functionally fit, your muscles need to be trained to work together (as they do in real life), not in isolation. See Why You Need a Strong Core.
Think of your body as a ‘kinetic chain’, where each body part is connected to another. It’s best described by The Skeleton Dance lyrics, “The thigh bone’s connected to the hip bone. The hip bone’s connected to the backbone….”
Your ‘chain’ is comprised of many different systems and is only as strong as it’s weakest link.
I always like to start an evaluation by looking at the feet, then work my way up the kinetic chain. Each of your bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia are connected to each other, and they perform optimally when they work in harmony as a unit.
