“You know your body’s doing good when you need to upgrade your clothing in the right ways, ‘cause you feel it in your thighs and back and chest muscles versus belly!”
“Once you address the muscular system, the efficiencies and range that are related to weaknesses, it opens up a whole realm (of healing).”
“We’re looking to see how you move at each segment and then treat through those movements in order to clear up any asymmetries.”
“It doesn’t matter if you’re playing pro sports or you’re the CEO of a corporation, having symmetry from each joint is a huge deal.”
“It’s all about having that muscular strength and as much symmetry from one side to the other as possible.”
“It’s about training smart, not just heavy.”
“For the long term, you have to work out smart.”
