Often considered simply a bad habit, the effect of poor posture on both pain and performance is greatly underestimated.  Correcting your alignment will increase function and efficiency, decrease pain and help prevent injury.  In this session, you'll learn how proper posture looks and feels as well as simple exercises you can do on your own that will help correct faulty posture and bring out the best in your training.



Mobility and Stability
Joint stability and proper range of motion (mobility)  are crucial to maintaining the integrity of your joints, especially when subjected to the demands of training, when recovering from an injury or experiencing joint pain.  These two elements work together to maintain healthy joints and create healthy movement.  In this session, we will discuss how imbalances between mobility and stability create pain and energy leaks and why stretching a "tight" muscle can often cause more problems. You will also learn sample exercises and techniques that you can add to your program to help correct and prevent these imbalances.    


Core Strength and Stability
Core training has generated much attention in recent years and is indeed one of the most essential components of proper training.  However, it is also one of the most misunderstood.  Core training encompasses much more than traditional abdominal training.  Proper exercise selection, body position and quality of movement are vital to true core development.  In this session, you'll learn the difference between what most people consider to be core training and what effective core work should actually entail, including exercises to do at home to improve your own core strength.
