Training Your Kids

For 2 months in the summer, I trained my oldest son, Javier. He was 13 at the time.

15181321_10209723128827836_7024859187086272296_nThis was his first year of high school. He joined the weight-lifting club. The teacher instructing the class told everyone not to bench press more than 40 lbs.

Javi told the teacher he could press 85 lbs 10 times. Sounds like an accident waiting to happen, she laughed. None of the kids could even lift the 40 pounder once.

Finally, with a proper spotter, Javi was allowed to show what he could do. Nobody could even believe it. Suddenly, his confidence is growing, as is his reputation. And that bully who was hounding him, has long-since run for cover.

Damn, am I good.15232160_10209723145588255_6761710729819626834_n

In a household that revolves around exercise, he’s going to get a heck of an education on yoga, cardio, abs. The studio is on the main floor, so there’s no escape…

Come check out the environment. See if it inspires you.

Ciao, Pietro

Stretching & Strengthening

Injuries are our bodies way of communicating its needs. If we spend all waking hours fixing our house, or working, no wonder our physical issues begin to mount.78027373

 

What good is a perfectly renovated house if we don’t have a properly functioning body to put in it? Getting our priorities straight comes first.

A breakdown in one part body often (almost always) leads to a chain-reaction. For example, a bum right knee causes a limp that hurts the other knee… or a groin-pull leads to a tear in the pelvis, which causes a further 13438979_10208488891212667_2215742238685015285_nproblem on that side of the body.

My job is to show you how to stretch and strengthen the muscles around the injury. This is a delicate art. Often you have to dance around the problem before dealing with it directly. And you have to work on the whole body because everything is connected.

Shoot me an email. Let me know your issues. I can help.

Ciao, Pietro
