If you have ever been physically fit and then had surgery, you could possibly find yourself in an extremely uncomfortable mindset.
Going from physical activity 5 days a week for over 15 years to not being able to do anything for 7 weeks sent me down the most depressive spiral of my entire life. It was the most humbling experience, yet I am insanely grateful for it.
Working out and proper nutrition came easy to me, I had built solid, healthy habits in the previous 15 years. When my physical limitations from recovering from my second back surgery brought these daily habits to an abrupt halt, I was FINALLY able to connect why movement was so crucial and important to me. I thought it was just habits, turns out my mental health DEPENDED on me moving my body.
Aligned Resistance was created when I was getting back into moving my body. I needed a way to safely return to building back my muscular strength and stability. 20 years as massage therapist (board certified since 2008) has provided a wealth of understanding in anatomy, movement and injury prevention. Combining this with my experience of creating movement plans for populations with limited mobility is what truly makes this a plan strategically designed to help maximize your strength and performance without compromising proper form.
