Sucker Punch: Paul Chek by Bryan Krahn

Many have adopted the expression “turn disaster into opportunity” during the latest economic recession. After my recent interview with educator, author, speaker, and exercise expert Paul Chek, I had the opportunity to find out exactly what that expression meant. My one-hour conversation with Paul Chek was just coming to a close when I suddenly realized that my voice recorder wasn’t, well, recording voices. Fortunately, I’d taken notes; 20 feverish pages of them, in fact. But Paul Chek, one of the most controversial, outspoken figures in the industry today, isn’t exactly known for speaking in short, MTV-friendly sound bites. Paul Chek is a man on a mission and when he speaks, his words reflect that. He is unapologetic in his belief that many “modern” approaches to health care are either misguided, flat-out wrong, or agenda-driven practices designed solely to pump up the bank accounts of the big pharmaceutical machine. Because of … Continue Reading

Forward head posture affects more women then men!

There are two very specific anatomical differences in females and males…well, there may be one more, but that is not what I am talking about! However when it comes to exercise, maintaining structural balance throughout these areas could mean the difference between undesirable pain, aesthetically displeasing features such as sagging breasts , a pooching belly and a “dowagers hump” and  having the body you desire while avoiding injury! The very things that exacerbate these differences, creating the issues that many women struggle with are going to be dependent upon the individual demands placed on the body. For example, forward head posture and rounded shoulders, along with their associated imbalances, can begin early on as women will adopt a slouching posture in an attempt to hide developing breasts.  As well, later on in life, our lifestyles begin to influence repetitive movement patterns which lead to imbalances and the development of compensatory … Continue Reading

Plantar Fasciitis and Your Foot Wear

As a born and raised San Diego beach girl, as well as having spent 10 years of my life living in the islands, unless the temperatures drop below 50 and the ground is wet, it is very rare you will find me in anything but “slippers” otherwise identified as flip flops! That was of course until I began experiencing foot pain…now you would think that, being an exercise specialist it would have been quite clear what was causing my pain, however, being human, I found myself in a state of denial and deeply saddened that my relationship with my “slippers,”  may very well be coming to an end! What I was certain of was, that what I was experiencing was indeed a mild form of plantar fasciitis, however, because I had jumped back on the running wagon and my pain increased right along with my mileage, it only made sense … Continue Reading
