The quality and symmetry of how we move guides the way we perform and feel. As humans we were made to move with efficiency and purpose. Unfortunately, most people in today’s world have previous injuries they have ignored, sit too much, and take approaches to training that are haphazard or random at best! This is a recipe for disaster resulting in unnecessary, non-contact injury and poor performance. A simple movement assessment followed by correction of limitation or asymmetry is the solution and the foundation of the Edge-1 approach. Moving with efficiency and purpose is the key to performing and feeling your best.
Training is more than just trying to break a sweat. Training is a plan designed to improve the capacity and quality of how you feel and perform. Training is sustainable for a lifetime and always pushes you towards the results you want. Training is finding the perfect combination of work and recovery that allows you to feel great and be ready to crush life each day!
Real foods fuel us but which foods are best? Real foods can assist recovery but which ones? One thing is for sure - You can’t out-train or out-recover bad eating habits. There is just so much “noise” out there when it comes to eating for performance and eating for health. The key is to cut out all of the hoopla and stay laser-focused on the truth when it comes to nutrition. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to use real foods to enhance both health and performance simultaneously. You simply need the right direction.
Results can be linked to one of or any combination of how you look, feel or perform. Your results depend on YOUR goals and YOUR dreams. Identifying goals and dreams is a necessary step but arriving at those goals and dreams requires a coach. A coach helps you build a plan and is in your corner on the way to YOUR results.
