The Year of Movement

Posted: January 1, 2016 in Results

40 years ago this March I was born in the year of the Dragon.  I don’t study Chinese astrology but I think it sure sounds cool.

What do I think of when I think of a Dragon?  I think of movement.  From strict movements designed by masters of movement that are to each be done in a specific way, to free flow movements that have no specific purpose or exact design.

We humans were made for movement, and can express ourselves through movement better than any other creature.

I must confess.  Because of some limitations I have from injuries in my past, I have stopped moving quite a bit over the past 5 years.  I’ve suffered horribly from my own brain, a disease known as “stinkin’ thinkin’”, and my goals for 2016 are to not out think it (it beats me every time), but to out move it.

I plan to move all the ways I can, from deeper breathing (moving all my insides), to moving my arms, legs and torso in the most ways I can.  Yes, I can’t move like I used to and it drives me crazy, so is the solution to stop moving?  No.

And my challenge to you for 2016…MOVE.  Walking is awesome, do more of it.  Jog, run, sprint too.  Hang the weight of your body from your hands.  Pull yourself, lunge, twist, jump, swing, crawl, extend, flex, roll, skip, punch, kick, turn and explode.

Movement creates momentum.  We need all the momentum we can get to move away from the things that truly harm us…too much tv, too much sugar, too much sitting, too much trying to find a close parking spot, too much inactivity.  Think beyond the typical five, thirty minute workouts per week.  Think of ways every moment which will allow you to MOVE MORE.

Train at The Rock as much as you can because I love teaching movement and would be honored to work with you, and when you can’t make it in…find a way to freaking move!

Our Rock Body Fitness classes are designed with movement in mind.  Come and move with us.  The Rock Body Challenge is simply a MOVEMENT challenge.  To MOVE yourself MORE than you are currently doing.  We will have teams, coaches, and instructors all challenging you to MOVE MORE.  We will have events and challenges to get you to MOVE MORE.

Come.  Surround yourself.  Join me and the others that are committed to more movement in 2016 and are starting the year off right, with the RBC, and learn to move like a dragon!  Haha.

I’ll see you moving soon,
Coach Carr
