Let's talk about POSTURE!

When we have a stooped or slouched posture, it increases our chances of losing our balance and potentially falling!

One "technique" we like to use is the superhero pose! Not only does it gives up more confidence, we stand up taller, strengthen our core, and puts our body in proper alignment!

How are you sitting our standing while reading this post?! 🤔

Let's see your superhero pose! 🧐

Stand with your legs wide, hands on hips, chest out, and chin up!

FUN FACT FRIDAY!

~Posture changes occur in Parkinson’s disease due to the brain 🧠 not receiving automatic reminders to stand up straight!
These changes can occur from:
🧠Muscle stiffness or rigidity
🧠”Off time”
🧠Being in one position too long
🧠 Concentrating on another activity

Certain exercises can help to overcome these changes!

~Living with a movement disorder can be quite a challenge especially during times of COVID.
~Getting out and moving is important to help slow the progression of a disease or help prevent the onset of disease.
~ Walking, especially with poles, can help keep you active while getting fresh air and seeing the beauty around you!

~What motivates you to get to the top of the mountain ⛰?!

~Weight shifting is important especially for someone living with Parkinson’s disease!
~Incorporating exercises that focus on shifting your weight from side to side helps with balance and mobility!
~Weight shifting exercises also help a person with Parkinson’s disease get out of a freezing episode by helping to free up the other leg in order to move!
~Adding a set of Activator poles helps with visual feedback and provide stability for weight shifting exercises!

🎁Reserve a virtual booth for $50, where 10% of the monies will be donated to the local APDA chapter and 10% will be donated to the National MS Society.
🎄Your business will be showcased on our social media pages as well as the opportunity to share with your followers.

We are loving 🥰 the first day of fall with a walk in the park with our Urban Poles! 🦯🦯 and doing our let’s face it together facial exercises!

Urban poling, aka Nordic Walking, had so many benefits, especially if you’re living with Parkinson’s disease or Multiple Sclerosis!
🦯 Helps improve balance and confidence!
🦯 Helps take stress off of painful hip and knee joints!
🦯 Gives you a full body workout including core strengthening which helps promote upright posture!
🦯 And a great cardio workout!!

Saw this picture on another FB page and thought 🤔, how true is this?!

How do you choose where to take classes if you are living with a movement disorder or chronic disease?!

Just like you would do research on a doctor, do your research on your instructors if you are living with a chronic disease. Find out what continuing education they have to help you achieve ultimate success!

I LOVE that you are getting your fighters outside! RSB coaches aren't doing much of that, and I believe it's a real loss for our boxers. Hiking uneven terrain is a real world challenge to balance and proprioception, and builds confidence. Fresh air and sunshine...what could be better than that. Social connections, something you can do with your family and friends. I'm so impressed. We are planning Jon's Boxing Grand Tour, and we want to come see you sometime!!
