An Inspirational Quote
“The soft and yielding overcome the rigid and hard but few people put this into practice.”
Tao Te Ching
Exercising regularly is one of the most important things you can do to heal your body. Now I have just made it a whole lot easier to learn how to exercise correctly.
Want to learn how to exercise? Or maybe you already know how but want to learn new ways of moving to add variety to your workouts? Just visit us on Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/totalfitnessusa.
Over the past several months, I have recorded and edited over 200 exercise videos and uploaded them to Youtube. So far, we have recorded stretches and mobilizations, yoga asanas and mudras and begun recording a long list of strength training exercises.
Ultimately we also plan to include qi gong movements as well as various exercises for healing the brain and the eyes. Soon, we will be creating a FREE exercise library and organizing all the material at www.totalfitness.net.
Why have we recorded 30 to 60 second videos? By definition, exercise is movement. It is hard to look at a photograph or a diagram and understand all the nuances. Creating 30 to 60 second videos that clearly show how to do each exercise safely and easily is just one of the ways we can give back to all our Total Fitness readers, students and clients around the world.
Any person with a computer will be able to watch our videos and follow along for FREE. If your computer is hooked up to your television, we have demonstrated roughly 10 to 12 repetitions of each exercise so you can work out along with us. We want you to become a happier, healthier person, and there is no way to accomplish that unless you learn how to exercise.
When we work with clients in other cities, we can direct our clients to these videos so they can understand how to exercise safely with proper and effective technique.
We will also be directing you to these videos in our upcoming newsletter articles.
