Do you feel it?
As practitioners of wellness and movement, you would think “fitness pros” would be exempt from the aches, pains, and hurdles many of us in the general population face. In many cases this is true, but not when foundational issues go unaddressed. Much of what I’m referring to is related to posture, but further than that is the metaphysical awareness required to move your body through planes of motion safely and consistently. As you learned in Nate and Devin’s video, it’s very easy to over value one element of your weekly movement. For Nate and Devin, they ignored pain signals and tightness to continue their pursuit for bigger muscles. Those signals were the guys’ bodies trying to tell them something, but they didn’t want to listen initially. It wasn’t until movement and capability were taken from our two tall trainer friends that they got serious about understanding the pain they were feeling AND doing something about it. What I’m proposing is the opportunity to catch your “signals” before you have to deal with the kind of pain Devin describes in the video. We can do that by taking a closer look at how you breath, how you move, and how your body “carries” itself. From there we can develop a plan that gets you moving at your best!
The reason I put this together is I’m passionate about my job. In coaching our members in strength solution, fitness solution, and in personal training sessions I notice movement patterns that are prone long term to creating issues that lead to pain or injury. Often times these are minor observations, but over time can truly add up! My goal is to reverse this trend and instead of training ourselves into pain like Devin and Nate, I want to help you improve your body awareness so you know you’re working toward feeling better every repetition instead of worse. Coaching in this realm is incredibly nuanced and sometimes requires more than what our coaches can provide in the traditional AFS class setting.
Who Should Consider?
Our coaches and myself will do our absolute best to point out to you when your movement quality should improve (and will give suggestions on how to fix it). Beyond that, if you’re someone who has dealt with injury in the past and doesn’t want to go through that again, you’ll likely see a lot of value in this. Another candidate would be someone who highly values preventative measures to keeping themselves healthy. A little work now can go a long way preventing issues in the future.
Starting the week of 9/30 I will be available for evaluation sessions. If you’re interested, or maybe just want to discuss an issue you’re having with your body or a specific movement, shoot me an email! email@example.com
