Hey EF Fam,
Have you ever thought about why movement was so easy when you were a kid? You could run jump and play all day with no aches and pains and move into extreme ranges of motions.
As we age, we forget how to squat correctly, pick things up properly, and move without exposing ourselves to injury. And aging and lack of movement is not the only reason/excuse; it goes deeper than that.
One culprit is muscular degeneration. This can be solved simply with strength training, which is easily accomplished (some might say not so easily 🙂 with the EarthFIT Training System, but many times the issue can lie deeper than what you might think.
When you were born, you explored and learned through movements. Your movements started on the ground and you built your motor and movement patterns using that foundation, literally from the ground up.
It was vital to your neurological development as well as your neuromuscular system and helped build things like:
- Motor control
- Vestibular System (Balance)
- Visual System
… Just to name a few…
The proper development of these systems is necessary to process information correctly. Science has proven that movement is essential to building a better brain, not only during the developmental years, but even now growing new brain cells (neurogenesis) can be just as important. Especially significant are movements that incorporate all the senses, which include (but are not limited to):
- Vestibular (Balance)
Well, we decided to create a program that brings it back to the basics. Back to the foundation of how you started to move – from as far back as when you were a baby, all the way through childhood, up until what you would need as an adult. It includes every sense that you need to activate the brain so that YOU:
- Gain new brain cells
- Get oxygen and glucose (brain fuel) to the brain faster
- Can integrate the brain’s hemispheres by crossing the midline of your body
- Reinforce basic motor learning, like crawling, rolling, jumping, etc.
- Reduce stress levels
- Accelerate motivation, learning, self-esteem, coordination, and
- Decelerate neuro-degeneration and the aging process
The program is centered around body weight training, but incorporates:
- Balance and stability
- Spatial awareness
- The Visual system
- Play movements (things we did as a child that were fun and entertaining but also very good for our bodies)
And of course, other side effects may include:
- weight loss,
- increased strength,
- lean muscle,
- and coordination.
You can’t beat that! If you are interested in experiencing this type of program, let me know. I will send more details in the near future.
We can only accept 8 people but if there are enough responses we may open up more time slots. http://clients.
P.S. We have a special going on for 1-on-1 training for the month of Nov. at specific time slots, only $37 per 1-on-1 training session ($10 less than joining our year 1-on-1 program). Anyone and everyone can take advantage whether you already train in group training, or you have never trained at EarthFIT before. If you are interested, get back to me ASAP, as we have very limited time slots and they will go quickly.
P.P.S We are in the process of creating another program called the “Bikini Body” headed by Fitness Model and Coach Chris Heskett. More details to come but this will focus on trimming the excess fat on the arms, thighs, booty and belly through training and include a specific nutrition program.
