One of our favorite quotes from one of our favorite books on aging! It is possible to be young and weak because you aren't moving enough, just as it is possible to be old and strong because you move often.
Being "under-moved" as a society is a great health crisis than aging. Make the choice to start aging well today by getting yourself moving in any way you can. Let us know how you are moving today in the comments, we would love to hear about it!
What if we told you your body doesn't start to fall apart just because you age... but instead because that you believe that you are aging?
The minute you start to tell yourself you are getting too old to do some of the active things you used to love, you start to age. We become unable to use our bodies just because we stop using them, not simply because we are getting older.
Make the choice to be young today and keep doing all the things you love to do!
Here at ABC, we do more than just teach you corrective exercise and natural movement. We make sure we set you up with the mindset you need to be successful because that can make or break how you age.
Keeping a positive mindset around aging can be a struggle, but can be just as powerful as the actions you take. Did you know that the stress created by the fear of developing medical conditions are stronger risk factors for these chronic conditions than any other physical risk factor? And that having a fear of falling actually makes you more likely to fall than having had a fall in the past?
This just goes to show the stories that we tell ourselves matter. So we can choose to focus on the positive or on the negative, but either choice we make will impact our lives for better or worse. So make the choice today to focus on the positive and see firsthand what a difference it makes!
Have questions about your pelvic health but were afraid to ask? A shocking number of our clients never even knew there were solutions other than surgery or Depends for leaking.
The reality is this absolutely does not have to be a normal part of your life. It's often day to day habits (or lack of day to day habits) that lead to leaking in the first place! Gaining control can be easier than you think.
If you are tired of relying on passive solutions and are ready to take an active approach to optimize your pelvic health reach out to us. At ABC, we specialize in improving your pelvic health through a whole body approach. Can you really afford to wait any longer?
MYTH: You should avoiding squatting if your knees hurt.
We've heard this myth just a few times too many... The truth is that you should do the exact opposite, squats lead to happy, healthy knee joints!
Where most people go wrong is not modifying their squat. There is more than one way to squat and when you first start some ways make your knees happier than others. If you have knee pain, start by sitting on a taller chair. Go from sitting to standing, then standing slowly back to sitting. And there, you have just done a squat!
As you get stronger, start to lower your seat height or hold onto a small weight when doing this exercise. We hope you learned something new about your knees today!
MYTH: Your balance can't get better because of your age.
We think this should be a ridiculous statement, but sadly many of the people we encounter hold on to this mistaken belief. The truth is that anything gets better with practice, regardless of your age!
At ABC, we help you adopt a growth mindset so you can age in the way in which you choose. You balance can always be better than it is right now no matter where you are starting from.
So, what are you waiting for? Contact us for a FREE balance assessment today at email@example.com.

At ABC, we've helped our clients find their best life by establishing a regular movement practice. So what is a movement practice?
A movement practice is a set of corrective exercises working toward larger, natural movement patterns like squatting, walking, and getting on and off the floor. All of these moves are key to being healthy and well!
Through this process, we teach mindfulness, positivity, and growth. The key word here is "practice"... we don't preach perfection and emphasize this process takes time, observation, and patience! A movement practice is meant to change over time.
Most importantly, we teach you to think through the process so you don't have to depend on us forever, but we are here for problem-solving and guidance whenever you need it! If you are ready to learn more about a movement practice, contact us to schedule your FREE consultation today!
At the core of our philosophy is helping our clients build a mindful movement practice.
A mindful movement practice is different from a typical fitness routine, but can be a great supplement to any type of exercise! In our years of experience, we've noticed mindful movement is one of the most overlooked components of health habits.
We teach that mindful movement is for everyone, from anyone who considers themselves an elite athlete to those who would describe themselves as couch potatoes.
