B. Where does it all apply in life?

It applies to various areas of life especially in the physical realm such as activities of daily living, work, school, sports, and leisure.

The ways of living (living behaviors, work choice, workouts, etc) that we can modify based on body type to create a balanced and optimally functioning body

It can even supply in the cognitive and learning realm

C. When does it apply to life?

  • it applies to anytime we are trying to physically function at our optimal level

  • it applies to anytime we are trying to prevent or correct muscular imbalances

  • it applies to anytime we have limitations due to musculoskeletal injuries

  • it applies to anytime we are trying to strategize how to best use out strengths and limit our weakness in any performance situation.

D. Why it is important?

When an individual is anterior or posterior chain dominant, they are constantly, and often times unknowingly, living and moving in an imbalanced state. When there is imbalance happening within the body, every step and movement is creating dysfunction and wear-and-tear that wreaks havoc on the bones, joints, and spine. Identifying a person’s body dominance, allows one to know what movements, exercises, and stretches are optimal for each individual.

E. The Benefits

  • Posture

    teach your body proper positioning for optimal functioning knowing that everyone may need a different stimulus
  • Pain

    knowing and creating an optimal environment for your body to move with ease, pain free. Gain an understanding of why imbalances may have developed which cause the wear and tear injuries we tend to experience, and reverse the process to ease the damage
  • Performance

    learning what your strengths and weaknesses are so that you may choose the optimal track in life, or gain an understanding of how to “un do” your sport to maintain a balanced, optimal function. Learn how to streamline your workouts to compliment the effects of intense training for your sport of choice
  • Prevention

    teach people how to discover their body type, how to optimally live, train and utilize their body, and how to maintain a balance body injury free. We need to begin with our children and use these highly effective kinesthetic awareness teaching methods and tools
  • Body Fat Loss

    creating an environment where the body works as a unit versus part by part, not only creates a synergy, but a fat burning machine. It also creates a pain free environment where one can move at a much higher intensity, yielding a greater caloric expenditure
