A person’s posture affects virtually every area of fitness. Posture affects muscles, joints, bones, internal organs, breathing, etc. Achieving proper posture can be the key to allowing the body to reach its fullest fitness potential. In proper posture the ears, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles are aligned as if a plumb line were running from the ears down through the torso into the legs and the feet. When proper posture is achieved, the body is able to function in its strongest, most balanced position. Thus, stress to the joints, muscles, vertebrae and tissue is minimized.
Improper poster can be one of the greatest obstacles to achieving fitness goals and can be the cause of serious injury. Improper posture, especially when walking, exercising or sitting puts increased stress on your back and causes discomfort and damage throughout the body. When the spine is left in non-neutral posture for extended periods of time, it raises the diaphragm, preventing the body from taking a full breath. This can lead to reduced oxygenation throughout the body. It can also compromise the internal organs’ performance by putting pressure throughout the abdomen. We focus on helping our clients achieve proper posture so they can unlock their body’s potential to achieve their goals and prevent injury.
Strength, Balance, Flexibility
After Rob assess the condition of a client’s posture, he evaluate what is causing the structural imbalances in the body. Rob needs to determine what is going on with the body that is causing the client’s posture to be compromised. He must find out what is causing the problems so we can fix them. To do a proper posture evaluation, he puts his clients through a series of functional tests that assess strength, weakness, flexibility, tightness, and balance. After the physical evaluation, he can develop a program that will help correct any imbalances and eventually improve their posture.
