More Sharing

Oh, it's so nice to share!  And it's such a blessing to be able to easily access resources that are well expressed, well researched, engaging, entertaining, and educational.  I am loving me some internet.  Thank you, Michael Scott Scudder, for posting this and inviting me to share it.

I will want to view this repeatedly myself.  The first questions that came into my head will not be the last questions I have about this material.  Please remember, this information is only covering aerobic activity.  There's more... but we'll get to that another time.

If you are viewing this in the first place, you know me or you work with me and there's an awfully good chance you are already following this recommendation.  So please pass it on to your friends and family who haven't embraced the message.

I encourage you to post your questions in the comments section.  Other readers may have the same questions, but even if they don't they may be interested in the answers.

Be Well!!

Too Good Not To Share

OK, one more list to get your New Year started.  A few lines are a bit tongue in cheek, so have a sense of humor, alright?  Because it's mostly true (except #9, which is utterly false).

Be Well!

You Are GREAT! But Just In Case There's Room For Improvement...

I haven't posted much in the way of specific programs I conduct but there's nothing like a new year to get me trying new ways to get good information into more and more hands/hearts/minds.

The Back Care For Life program is all about giving you the tools to regain your comfort in your own skin.  It meets twice a week for six weeks.  If you have postural imbalances which are causing back or neck pain, we’ll find them and you’ll learn how to correct them.  If your exercise program isn’t addressing movements to actively and safely load and unload your spine, you’ll learn which movements to include.  Movement is medicine!  And I'll provide thorough coverage of stretching, stability, and balance exercises, with homework handouts. 

The comprehensive Back Care For Life program features a before-and-after postural assessment, so you can see documented progress over the course of the six-week program.  I can also modify exercises as appropriate in the event you have osteoporosis or a diagnosed back or neck injury, or other joint problem.

A new six week session of Back Care For Life begins at the Oakridge Fitness Center of The Landings Club on Tuesday, January 24th.  The sessions are held from 1:00pm to 2:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  If you have been through the program (this will be our third) and you know someone who might benefit from it as you have, I thank you for sharing this information with them and encourage them to register in advance at the Front Desk of the Fitness Center.

Not a Landings Club member?  Interested in attending the program in Savannah?  Let's get a minimum of six individuals registered for the program and we'll find a satellite location to hold the program... Strong Gym, for instance.   Email me to register.

More Self Improvement -- Here is a link for an excellent top 10 list for strengthening your resolve, to make your health and the health of the people whose lives you touch a top priority for 2012 and beyond:

When I have previously inserted other author's blog posts in this space, it has caused confusion and led some readers to believe that I wrote the article.

So I am going to try to be more consistent about posting the link instead.  I had been copying and pasting just the text of other blogs in order to save you from some of the advertising the blogs feature.  Often, I will agree with the content of a blog article but I don't wish to be seen as endorsing the products being advertised. 

So please don't assume that I am the author of content of the link above.  Nor should you assume that I endorse or approve of the advertising.  If you want to know whether I approve of a certain product, ask me:-) 

I am counting on you, dear reader, to be media savvy.

OK, now you are all revolutionaries -- or health and fitness freedom-fighters, if you will.  Right?

Be Well!
