FOR FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT
Our movement philosophy focuses on identifying movement restrictions. Once identified, we utilize strengthening and stretching to restore and even increase the functional range of motion. When the desired range of motion has been restored we transition to skill acquisition. Skills consist of learning to squat, lunge, bend, twist, push, pull, walk, jog, and sprint. Then we begin the strengthening or endurance phase to ensure longevity. Once you are flexible, balanced, and strong we increase the complexity of your movement practice.
CORRECTIVE EXERCISE BENEFITS INCLUDE:
Movement and Performance
Balancing your musculoskeletal system leads to improved biomechanics thereby creating more efficient movement while decreasing fatigue and allowing for higher levels of performance.
Movement and Immunity
Movement of the musculoskeletal system assist the organs in pumping lymph and blood through your veins and arteries as well as assisting in peristalsis, a major component of digestion and elimination.
Movement and Mood
Movement influences the release of numerous hormones. Not enough movement and you don’t produce enough “feel good” hormones. Too much movement and you produce “stress hormones.”
Movement and Injury
A lack of movement throughout the day causes a shortening and weakening of the musculoskeletal system as a whole which greatly increases the likelihood of injury.
CHEK PRACTITIONERS ARE IN HIGH DEMAND
CHEK practitioners are in high demand. Working with an educated trainer can make all the difference in the world. An educated trainer will have deep understanding of anatomy, kinesiology, physiology, and functional movement. This knowledge allows our trainers the ability to adjust movements to accomodate YOUR BODY and YOUR SPECIFIC NEEDS. Our trainers have an in-depth understanding of movement, and they stay on the cutting edge of movement science with countless hours of continuing education and self-practice.

What does the science say?
Corrective exercise is the safe and valuable method to correct spinal deformities such as kyphosis, scoliosis, and lumbar lordosis. No one is immune to the effects of gravity and force when it comes to everyday life. Corrective exercise can decrease the problems associated with aging and disabilities (Journal of Isfahan Medical School, Volume 27, No. 101).
Many of our clients have worked with trainers in the past, and often with the same back story: The first 2-3 months tend to go well with most any trainer because something is usually better than nothing. However, once the initial plateau is reached, the regression begins. Participants often end up injured, exhausted, cease to make improvements, or all of the above. We have over 20 years experience to avoid these pitfalls. We invite you to join those who have found a BETTER WAY at PIERCE FAMILY WELLNESS!
