Women share letters on what they would tell their younger selves or another young girl about the journey; this book will remind you of your power and that you are never alone.
MOVEMENT IS MEDICINE
Kim Jones (MA, CSCS, Z-Health, USAW), aka: Jones Strength, is a renowned Performance Coach, Precision Nutrition Certified Nutritionist (PN1) and IFBB Pro Women's Physique competitor based out of Los Angeles, California.
MISSION STATEMENT: I teach fundamentals of movement to help people regain their physical freedom and return to the activities they love.
Why should you need to injure yourself, have surgery then go to physical therapy just to re-learn how to move properly? That's kind of backwards isn't it? Pre-hab Don't Rehab folks! Why not learn how to move properly in the first place to decrease the chances of blowing out a knee, herniating a disc or developing tendinitis?
It isn't always the acute debilitating injuries that do people in. Nope! It's the minor little aches and pains that go ignored. It starts with tightness, restricted range of motion, numbness, burning, tingling etc. Then as symptoms progress apprehension kicks in and certain activities gradually get shut down until a completely sedentary lifestyle is the "safe" new norm. Chalk it up to old age right? Wrong! Pain is NOT the price we pay for getting older. It's the price we pay for poor posture, too much sitting, un-addressed muscle imbalances and ignoring our "check engine" lights. You know, the signals (listed above) that our bodies send when they need attention. Here's where I come in!
My name is Coach Jones and I give people their lives back! My passion is movement, and I'm gonna teach you how to recruit the right muscles so you don't hurt yourself.
