The Squat- This is an important movement because it’s a movement most of us have to do daily- sitting on a chair, going to the bathroom, picking up objects from the floor.

Little things add up over time. Let’s say you put $1 a day in a jar for your child’s savings. It may not seem worth the bother doing just a dollar a day but if you did that consistently each day until they turned 18 years old then they’d have over $6,550 (that’s not including interest).

Concerns of weight (I prefer using the term body composition as weight isn’t telling the whole story) are common in the modern world.
Here’s an interesting article on the weight loss culture...Read More
The shoulder pain is right up there with other common issues like back and knee pain. This isn’t necessarily because we use the shoulders as much as we do the back and the knees and thus wear them out prematurely.Read More
For me, I stretch so I can carry on doing the things I love- playing with my family, martial arts and doing my movement sessions called Disconnected Sessions which is big kids fun. I don’t like being in pain and I don’t like missing out on the fun things in life especially due to injury. Been there and done that!Read More
With there being a million different ways to choose how, what and when you eat out there with conflicting advice around every corner it can get very confusing.
