It has been proven that long-term weight loss cannot be sustained without a strong commitment to a physically-active lifestyle including strength training, cardiovascular conditioning and improved movement. Many people face barriers to being more active. One of the biggest barriers to being more active is chronic pain. In many cases, chronic pain comes from muscle imbalances and weaknesses that result from either aging or, more importantly, sedentary lifestyles. Addressing these issues helps my clients to move better, more confidently and improve overall strength, stamina and endurance. When these things improve, confidence improves. With improved confidence comes long-term commitment. My goal with all of my clients is to assist them with improving their confidence so that they stay committed and get off the sedentary roller-coaster for good!
