Improved Posture via Foundation Training

Bill Steen told me about this system months ago and I just got around to checking it out. Posture is an “issue” as one gets older, and this approach (and the guy) look totally right on and tuned in. I’m going to try some of these routines while watching TV. Right now I’m sitting (Verve Coffee in sunny Santa Cruz) in a more aligned position just having watched these routines.

“Foundation Training is a series of exercises based on integrating the muscular chains of the body. Our exercises begin with the Posterior Chain of Muscles to quickly stabilize your spine and core because our modern lifestyles leave most of these muscles weak and imbalanced.

   You can quickly learn the tools you need to fix many of the chronic pains plaguing our daily lives. Learning to connect the Posterior Chain will teach you to move naturally, evenly absorbing the weight of your body. Once you begin to move properly you will engage more muscles in every step you take, sport you play, and exercise you choose to do.

   All ages and fitness abilities can benefit from Foundation Training because it teaches your body to move as nature intended. You will reach new heights in physical health and feel improved control of your body. Many of our clients have broken longstanding plateaus by taking the time to master these fundamental movement patterns, and all of our clients have improved the way their bodies move.

   No equipment is necessary and you can do it just about anywhere. Your body adapts quickly to these natural movement patterns, so much so that you begin reinforcing them throughout your day without having to think about it. This is truly sustainable exercise.

   Live happy in your body. It starts with a solid Foundation.”
