Let’s Make Movement Easy
Have you ever watched a professional dancer and thought “WOW, they make that look easy?”
How do dancers do that?
Is it flexibility? Is it strength? Ís it genetics? Is it hours of training?
Yes, it’s all of the above. But what’s the key determinant of them making it look easy? They train with that purpose in mind. They train and work to find ease in their movement.
Powerlifters train to be strong. They look strong. Dancers train to move. They are strong. But they look graceful.
We may not all want to be professional dancers. But there isn’t one person in our classes who doesn’t aspire to move more easily.
Imagine springing out of bed on a sunny morning and heading out for a walk without having to wait for your body to free up.
Imagine having the freedom to run along the beach with your kids or grandkids – and not worry about tearing a calf muscle.
Imagine the feeling of crossing the finish line of a 10km and feeling light and exhilarated – not exhausted, stiff and sore.
Imagine hitting the golf ball with a sense of powerful ease – and then walking the full 12 holes whilst having a laugh with your friends.
Move with Purpose
If what we really want is a sense of freedom and ease in our body, why do we continue to train it with a mentality of “more strain, more gain”?
Don’t get me wrong, having a body that moves well takes hard work. It also takes dedication. But it should also involve a sense of fun. Enjoyment. And it should be with the purpose of making the movement feel easier – not just constantly making it all about “strain”.
At Freedom Health we are all about purpose. We want to help you change your perspective on movement and “exercise”. So for the next 7 weeks we are going to explore ways to make movement easier. We’ll explore different movements – and find ways to move with more ease, less strain. Whether it be hitting the golf ball further, having more spring in your morning step, or easily tramping the outdoors over your summer break – we’re here to help you find a sense of fun and ease in your movement – every day.
