Now…are you ready to change how you move?
 Great! The first step is to change your mindset–this is the most important step.
 The path to quality, pain-free movement begins by creating a new mindset around how you move. It begins with a simple understanding:
If I am in pain, then the way I have been moving is not good for me. If I want to feel better, I must change the way that I move. This change begins by no longer buying into the self-limiting beliefs that your pain is caused by your age. It is not. The pain is caused by your movement choices. You have to get your joints back to their proper positions with precise movements and stabilizing exercises. The muscles are then able to contract and relax through their entire range of motion. Get your movement in alignment and everything amazingly changes.

This year is filled with endless possibilities...

Discover the person you were always 
meant to be, you owe that to yourself.

Do you find that you are your own harshest critic?   Often the negative self-talk you experience is far more harsh than anyone else would or could ever say about you.

There is no more powerful or challenging change we can make in our lives than looking at how we think. It's a choice and every single choice creates a new future.

It is important to remind yourself that everyone in the class is hoping to get healthier and stronger. You can’t change the length of your limbs or the shape of your bones. You can however, use all the nutrition and exercise information you will learn to affect how much body fat or muscle you have. As you progress, you will see much less emphasis about pure muscular benefit and fat loss, and much more about overall movement/ability and the vital role they play in sustaining good physical health.

Are you tired of exercise programs that just don’t work? Give us 55 minutes 2x per week and we'll give you the health & fitness level you have always wanted. It's never too late to get in shape for life. And, most importantly, people who exercise simply live longer than people who don't. We offer sustainable exercise for pain-free health and longevity.
