    Movement Strategies to Improve Your Range of Motion & Joint Health (FREE Webinar Replay)

    When it comes to range of motion, most people are still resorting to outdated methods like traditional static stretching. As much as addressing individual muscles and muscle groups can be important, your range of motion training must also take into consideration the joint, brain & nervous system, and various other areas. This means a more well-rounded and detailed approach to see lasting results. Recently, I held a FREE 60-minute webinar on the topic of 'Movement Strategies to Improve Range of Motion & Joint Health.'

  • 'In the Spotlight' with Tammy Moorey

    'In the Spotlight' with Tammy Moorey

    In this edition of ‘In the Spotlight’ let’s talk with Tammy Moorey. I have had the pleasure of working with Tammy since July 2020. This was during the height of the pandemic when we started virtually but have since been able to meet on a monthly basis as she continues to kick up her training. To say I’m impressed with Tammy’s dedication and consistency is an understatement. She will do whatever it takes to run pain-free and live a healthy lifestyle which has made my job very easy. Because let’s be honest, with knee osteoarthritis you constantly have to be on top of the smaller details in order to function with limited pain at a high ....

  • Bunions and Big Toe Pain: Here's What to Do...

    Bunions and Big Toe Pain: Here's What to Do...

    As we cover the topic of bunions and foot health, I can honestly say I am guilty of not prioritizing this area enough early in my career. We commonly emphasize the glutes, quads, and core that it’s easy to overlook this pivotal area. The foot consists of numerous bones, ligaments, muscles, and tendons which ultimately create our foundation and connection with the ground. Whether it’s due to genetics, gender, occupation, anatomy, or footwear, there can be structural changes over time which negatively affect the alignment and function of the foot. One in particular is the development of bunions or hallux valgus. Bunions can be classified as normal (less than 15-degrees) ....

  • Core Training That Matters - How to Train the Foot, Core, and Breathing to Impact Running Performance (FREE Webinar Replay)

    Core Training That Matters - How to Train the Foot, Core, and Breathing to Impact Running Performance (FREE Webinar Replay)

    When it comes to strength and movement training, too often do we target areas in isolation assuming that stronger individual pieces will translate to better overall performance. This is especially I see when working with runners. What most runners need to realize is that the body functions as an interconnected unit to stabilize, transmit energy, absorb force, and create efficient movement. You still need to target the individual pieces while also putting them together in a bigger movement pattern. This is especially true when it comes to the foot, core, and breathing. Recently, I held a FREE 60-minute webinar on the topic of 'Core Training That Matters - How to Train the Foot, ....

  • Core Training for Runners (FREE Webinar Replay)

    Core Training for Runners (FREE Webinar Replay)

    The core is an important but often poorly targeted area. It's not that runners are neglecting the core altogether because most know it's value... it's just that so many are going about it the wrong way which creates limited results. Over the years, I have seen so much emphasis on strengthening the muscles of the core with traditional exercises. This is needed to a degree, but running requires stabilization more than anything else. Therefore, a specific approach must be executed to actually build the core in a way which translates to better running performance and injury reduction. Recently, I held a FREE 60-minute webinar on the topic of core training for runners. It's my hope ....
