I was recently inspired by one of our students in our Mobility inResONEnce program to really reflect on the WHY behind our HOW.
Recently, I received this update:
I continue to be amazed by this student's forward mindset and commitment. It's not my story to share, but this student was extremely forthcoming with past histories and current challenges.
In our Discovery Call, I was even the first to say that I'm not sure if I'm a good fit for the student's needs, but that I'm willing to try and learn.
We started with Mobility Assessments.
We allowed life to take over through the holidays, but continued to commit on a once-a-week session when the schedule fit.
We modified the programming carefully each week, taking notes of how things felt before, during, and after each session.
And in less than 10 mobility sessions, progress!
Our approach to this student's journey was to learn how the body moves and responds to internal and external stimulus. What did we look for exactly?
Assessment of the joint's range of motion to see what sensations occur when moving on your own.
This student has an extremely physical day job, which proses a challenge to anyone who wants to also pursue physical training and strength and conditioning without further stressing the body towards increased risk of injury. Remember this simple equation:
LOAD >> CAPACITY = INJURY
This simple formula is the reason why we assess first, and assess continuously. We are more intentional in our approach to learning movements and our capacities, so that in turn, things appear to be "magically" and "unexplainably" better in other areas of your life without realizing it.
And it also shows that we let life happen. We have good days and bad days, and we respect where we are at any given time. No stress, no anxiety, no judgment.
I am so grateful that I was given an opportunity and a chance to help reach this milestone. I'm looking forward to reaching more milestones, and more opportunities to help others.
