My visit to the Boulder Movement Collective

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Movement

I recently visited the Boulder Movement Collective, Colorado’s first Ido Portal inspired training facility. For a long time now, I’ve wondered why Boulder, or Colorado for that matter, didn’t have a movement-focused training gym. After all, Colorado is such a mecca for the super fit, that it just seemed natural to see some sort of Ido Portal influence in the area. I’m pleased to say that the BMC is a wonderful addition to the already […]

Posture, posture, posture. Everyone wants it, few have it, and we’re always talking about it, aren’t we? Well, it’s a hot topic for good reason – having good posture is key to maintaining a healthy body. It’s as simple as that.

Simple ways to improve your posture at work

It’s common knowledge that Western societies spend far too much time seated. We sit all day long at work only to go home and sit some more. And when we go to the gym we see an enormous selection of workout machines that encourage us to once again be seated! All this sitting is not good. It tightens our hip flexors and works to deactivate our glutes just to name a couple of things. But […]

Improvising your fitness like Ido Portal and Movnat is tough – here’s how

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Fitness philosophy, Movement

The methods behind Movnat and Ido Portal are inspirational. I think that’s honestly the best way to describe these programs to the uninitiated. But this awesomeness comes at a cost because each of the methods promotes mastery of movement via improvisation. And if you’re an inspiring mover then I think that it’s this element of improvisation that may turn out to be the biggest speed bump in your way of becoming a movement expert. So in […]
