We were created for movement. Think about children. They naturally want to run, play, jump over things, hang on things, and roll around. As adults, sometimes we lose that joy in movement, and as the saying goes, “If you don’t use it, you lose it.” Some of us have lost mobility or strength due to living a more sedentary lifestyle or for other reasons. In a digital culture, staying active is not always required of us, so we often have to make that intentional choice to move. The wonderful thing about the body is that, again, it will adapt to whatever stress is put on it. It doesn’t matter where you start at, if you challenge your body, it will change.

The goal of my program is to not only get you strong, but to improve your overall movement patterns, to make movement easier, and hopefully rekindle your joy in movement. You will see a lot of focus on core. This is your foundation. Your core is at the center of all of your movement, and by strengthening it, you will improve your ability to move with ease and prevent injury. Many of your daily activities involve your core, whether it’s carrying groceries, reaching across your body to grab something, or bending over to pick something up. I think you will be amazed at how this program affects your daily life.

I want to encourage you to stick with this program. If you are a beginner, don’t be afraid to modify some of the movements until you gain the strength to do them as shown. I’m confident that if you show up every day, you will begin to notice changes and start to feel stronger within the first few weeks.

Finally, don’t skimp on mobility. As you gain strength, your body will naturally become tighter, so it will become even more important to do your mobility exercises to continue performing well and recover quicker.
