Rebalancing is proactive strength training focused on developing and maintaining good postural alignment and functional motor patterns, utilizing a wide range of movement practices and corrective exercises.
We all have muscle imbalances throughout our bodies, usually due to consistently performing specific tasks and activities. If we choose to ignore these strength and flexability imbalances, we are much more susceptible to injuries.
Over the past 16 years I have overcome many serious injuries and have successfully rehabilitated both ACL ligaments in my knees, an AC ligament separation in my shoulder and carpel tunnel in both wrists.
Most people wait until they are injured to begin doing rehabilitation exercises. If you prepare for breakdowns, you can avoid spending lots of time and money recovering from a preventable condition.
Today's work environment, full of technology and automation, has also contributed to a growing number of physically inactive and dysfunctional people. The average working professional sits in an unnatural posture for hours at a time, and is required to move very little on a daily basis. This decrease in activity and prolonged sitting posture often leads to muscular dysfunction, including low back pain, knee injuries, musculoskeletal injuries, and chronic diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular diseases, arthritis, and diabetes.
It is wise to combat these negative effects by actively working to discover and correct neuromuscular imbalances in the body. This will greatly reduce your risk of injury, improve your postural alignment, and allow you the freedom to do the activities you love.
To accomplish this, we must first perform an overall fitness evaluation and assess your abilities, strengths and weaknesses. Then, it is important to re-balance the body and prepare for the next level of activity in your progression. After the rebalancing phase, I will continue to show you how to make fitness fun and enjoyable. I will teach you how to utilize your surrounding environment to achieve your fitness goals.
To attain and keep results, you must be consistent. By enjoying your fitness activities you will strengthen your success formula. I believe that if you view working out as play, the path to wellness and balance will follow.
