The Rebels Guide to "Exercise"

Ever considered yourself a rebel, or maybe just want to be one?

If so, you’ve likely always hated the idea of a regular “exercise” habit. Even if you understand the health benefits, you’ve always been opposed to the regimented lifestyle of exercise.

Or maybe you’ve just always found traditional exercise boring. That’s the position I’d always found myself in until I learned about movement-based lifestyles.

Even if you’ve always hated traditional exercise, that doesn’t mean you can’t experience all the health benefits of movement.

Let’s talk about how a movement-based lifestyle is the answer for you and your rebellious lifestyle.

Why a Movement-Based Lifestyle?

Adopting a movement-based lifestyle involves customizing movement to fit your current lifestyle.

That’s right. You don’t need to change much other than your mindset and your environment to gain all...

Action Steps To Improve Your Balance Today

 

Age gracefully by challenging your balance every day.


We don’t often think about our balance until it becomes a problem. In my work as a therapist, I’ve treated both younger and older adults with balance problems.

Balance is a complex system, involving communication between our brain, body, and sensory systems. A decline in any one of these can quickly become problematic.

We tend to associate balance problems with aging, but there isn’t a magical age you reach in which your balance starts to decline. Instead, physical decline begins the minute you stop challenging yourself.

The benefits of maintaining and improving your balance at any age are endless. You’re more likely to be capable to continue doing the activities you love as you age. You’ll worry less about falling, and have more confidence than adults who don’t have good balance. Research has even found a strong connection between balance and brain health. The better your balance,...

What is a Movement Practice?

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!

Develop This Skill To Build Confidence As You Age

A common theme I’ve noted in my work as a physical therapist is a loss of confidence in all areas of life that usually accompany a decline in physical function, particularly in older adults.

Once it happens, it leads to a long road to rebuild this confidence and often leaves those it happens to never getting back to the place they were before.

And it makes so much sense. A loss of physical abilities leads to difficulty leaving home, participating in much loved activities, and creating a dependency on others for survival. This quickly leads to feeling of isolation, depression, and loneliness which further perpetuates the cycle of decline.

So… armed with this information how can you prevent this from happening in your future?

On one hand, it’s not entirely possible to prevent every medical event. Even those who make all the right lifestyle choices can still end up with a chronic condition. On the other hand, however, we can all choose how we will react to and...
