Healthy living

People ask me all the time what is corrective exercise? Are you still unfamiliar with what corrective exercise is? If so, I’ll tell you. . . Corrective exercise is a form of exercise that brings one’s body back to normal postural alignment by eliminating any imbalances in the body as well as teaching one’s body how to move optimally and efficiently. Throughout my practice I have learned valuable strategies on how to help people feel alive and healthier and corrective exercise has provided them solutions to improve their health and fitness.

Check out a snippet of this testimonial from one of my clients, “This is amazing work! I just had my assessment and first session. I have had so much bodywork done in my life, and I have always been fascinated by postural alignment. What Ryan taught me today did more than a ten session series of Rolfing could do 😉 Incredible!” – Pam For those of you who don’t know what Rolfing is, it’s a deep tissue massage aimed to improve tension throughout the body.

Are you on the fence if corrective exercise is for you? Most people benefit often immediately from corrective exercise as it provides them the following:

  • Feeling healthier and alive
  • Less achy and stiff
  • Improved posture and strength
  • AND more confidence!

Who wouldn’t want to feel all of those things?? Everyone wants to feel healthier and alive and by being on a corrective exercise program you will give yourself the best opportunity for success and optimal health. I recommend everyone to have at least one corrective exercise workout as you will be amazed by the immediate benefits you will feel! The time is now. . . You only have one body so I challenge you to take great care of it. . .

Corrective Ecercise

So we all go to exercise regularly whether it is playing a sport, taking a class, or just going to the gym. How many of you rush through your workouts just to get it done? Or do you find yourself skipping certain parts of the workout because they are boring or take too much time? If I had to guess, we are all guilty of cutting corners during our workouts. . . Over the years I have learned that people rush through their workouts because they don’t have enough time, their workouts are boring, and are lacking motivation? If you rush through your workouts, please shoot me and email and share with me what is the # 1 reason why you rush through your workouts . . .

My clients ask me all the time how to maintain their motivation while exercising. Who wants to hear some of my secrets? Well, I am going to tell you. . . Listed below are three proven strategies to stay motivated and not rush through your workouts:

  • Exercise at a time of the when you are most alert: For example, this varies from person to person, but this may be before work, during your lunch break, or in the evenings after work. Find the time of the day that works for you and stick to it!
  • Listen to music. All my clients that listen to music are more engaged and pumped up. Find the music you like and bring it with you to all your workouts. . . Music can change EVERYTHING!!
  • Perform different workouts or exercises: For example, if you regularly run on the treadmill try running outside or even playing a sport such as tennis or soccer. This will offer the variety that you need.

And there you have it. . . Follow these simple steps to avoid rushing through workouts. . . By implementing any of these three strategies you will be on your way to completing your workouts with a BANG. Please share what’s working for you on my Facebook Fan Page as I want to hear from you! Until then, exercise safely and always listen to your body. . .

Before you continue, reading this, please STOP and bring out a pen and a piece of paper and write one goal that you want to accomplish in 2014. Once you have done that, please reply to this email and share it with me or post it on my Facebook Fan Page. The single biggest mistake that people don’t make when attempting to accomplishing their goals is taking action. . .

We are going to use one of my client’s goals from 2013 and I am going to show you how we made a plan to accomplish this goal. His goal was to: improve overall flexibility and strengthen his lower-back in one year’s time. I love this goal as it’s specific, but also measurable because he gave himself a year to accomplish this. After he shared this goal with me we developed a plan outlining the steps that he had to take to achieve this. His plan included:

  • How often he was going to exercise
  • What exercises he needed to do
  • Where he was going to perform them
  • Any equipment that he needed

Now it’s your turn to take action and create a plan to accomplish this goal. What’s going to be included in your plan to achieve this goal? The only thing that I ask for you is you get started on creating this plan right away. As always, if there is anything I can do to assist you in creating this plan don’t hesitate to contact me (include a link to this page). Until then, happy New Year and here’s to a great year ahead. . .

OK, now we are onto Week Three of showing you how to perform exercises to relieve low back pain. Did you know that low back plagues 80% of our population? Were you aware that lower back is the 2nd most common reason why people see a doctor! Can you guess what the number one reason why people see a doctor? It’s the common cold. . . This week we are going to discuss three simple strategies to reduce your lower back pain.

Before we get to the exercises, how many of you suffer from lower back pain? Many of my clients suffer from lower back pain as a result of poor posture, poor technique when exercising, and weakness in their lower back. By following these three exercises you will improve your posture and flexibility, which will take a ton of pressure off of your lower back.

Now onto the exercises! Here they are in sequential order as seen in the video:

  • Hip Flexors – these muscles are often tight from extended periods of sitting. By stretching them regularly you’re posture will improve dramatically
  • Glutes – these muscles are often irritated when one suffers from lower back pain. This is probably the # 1 stretch to alleviate lower back pain. A favorite of mine for sure!!
  • Hamstrings – who doesn’t have tight hamstrings? Stretch them regularly and you will feel alive!

And there you have it, by following these three easy exercises your lower back will be happy and you will lower your chances of experiencing an injury. I urge you to refer back to this video regularly to make sure your technique is solid and for the directions on each exercise! Should you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact me. Until then, exercise safely and always listen to your body!

OK, now we are onto Week Two of showing you how to perform exercises to relieve shoulder pain! Who’s excited? I am, and can’t wait to share it with you. . . This week we are going to discuss three simple strategies to improve your shoulder strength.

Before we get to the exercises, how many of you suffer from shoulder pain? Many of my clients suffer from shoulder pain as a result of poor posture, improper mechanics when playing sports, and over-use. By following these three exercises you will improve your posture, shoulder strength, which will ultimately decrease your chances of experiencing a shoulder injury.

Now onto the exercises! Here they are in sequential order as seen in the video:

  • Prone Scaption – this is a great exercise to strengthen the mid-back, rotator cuff, and posterior part of the shoulder. A great exercise for individuals who sit for a long time
  • Rear Flies – this exercise strengthens the posterior part of the shoulder and is often weak in individuals who sit for a long time as well as people playing sports that require overhead motions
  • External Rotation – this exercise isolates the rotator cuff, which is very weak in almost all of my clients. By keeping it strong you will keep these muscles happy!

And there you have it, by following these three easy exercises your shoulders will be happy and you will lower your chances of experiencing an injury. I urge you to refer back to this video regularly to make sure your technique is solid and for the directions on each exercise! Should you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact me. Until then, exercise safely and always listen to your body!
