KULT question of the week
“On your home page, you say you help build better bodies. What do you mean by building a better body?”
What is a better body?
Generally speaking, a better body is one that…
- Stands erect, with good postural alignment.
- Does not hang on its soft tissues for support.
- Moves well, with efficiency and elegance.
- Has a balance strength, flexibility and mobility through all fundamental movement patterns and in all ranges of motion.
- Has high energy levels, to fuel your dreams and ambitions.
- Is functionally strong, so you can participate in activities without the worry of getting injured.
- Does not age prematurely through unsupportive lifestyle factors
- Displays good static and dynamic stability and motor control allowing for higher levels of training.
- Has a healthy body composition.
- Supports metabolism.
- Is pain free.
- Exhibits optimal gut health and hormonal balance.
- Has healthy relationship between training and recovery.
- Does not seek every sitting opportunity.
- Is well hydrated.
- Does not require stimulants for energy.
- Feels vibrant and full of life.
- Has a strong and efficient heart & lungs so you can run after children as needed.
- Is stress free, both in the mind and in the soft tissues.
- Displays a strong connection between mind, body, and spirit.
- Is aware of its surroundings.
- Contributes to mental health, acuity and self esteem.
To me, a better body is one that is built to last a lifetime.
And I think it’s worth putting in the effort to make it better.
How do you build a better body?
Building a better body is a journey. A lifelong journey at that. You don’t achieve it overnight. Building a better body is a process that requires consistent and mindful effort. Persistence. Trial and error to see what works for you and what doesn’t. It requires the ability (and will power) to make necessary sacrifices, tradeoffs and supportive decisions consistently, time in and time out. And when mistakes happen, to stand up and keep going. It takes grit, determination, commitment and above all, an acknowledgement that it is important. It also takes love because loving yourself makes the journey more enjoyable and more worthwhile.
I know what you’re thinking…
This sounds like a lot of work!
But before you shut your mind to it, think.
Is it important to you?
Really important for you and your family?
Imagine. Just for a moment. Close your eyes and imagine what it will FEEL like to live in your better body. Not a hypothetically perfect one, but YOUR better one.
Now think of the alternative.
No energy to do the things you love. A weakened immune system susceptible to all sorts of icks. Dissatisfaction with how you move, look and feel.
To me, that’s no way to live.
And that’s why I stay on my own journey and look to help others on theirs. I want you by my side every step of the way!
If this rings true to your heart, then you are ready. Your brain will follow. Lets get started.
