Health & Fitness Pyramid

How solid is your foundation? Making progress in your Health and Fitness goals will be thwarted if you are missing one (or more) of the building blocks.

No matter how hard you "work out", you cannot be truly "fit" without a healthy lifestyle and a mobile body!

Taking a step back and building a strong foundation will help you to reach the next level and increase your longevity in your sport or activities, as well as your physical and mental health.

Back to School

September is time to go "Back to School"! Spend the month sharpening your skills by focusing on the basics.

It is important, no matter how long you have been training, to periodically take a step back and look at your foundation. Are there cracks in it? Can you build it stronger?

Take the time in September to slow things down. Focus on refining your skills. Find the cracks and repair them. Build a stronger foundation and you can build a bigger house!

If you maintain a "beginner's mind", and are diligent in your practice, you will be rewarded down the road.

Natural Leg Extension

The Natural Leg Extension is a challenging bodyweight exercise which requires control and mobility.  

It is important to ensure that the hips do not bend throughout the movement in order to make progress.  Keep the entire body connected and engaged ... especially the legs, glutes, and core ... and push through the tops of the feet while returning to the upright position.  Start with a range of motion that can be completed with proper form and progress from there.
