Me and my buddy Posturologist Mat Boulé just finished a two day seminar on how to maximize performances. We had the pleasure to teach a great group of very motivated coaches, osteopath and athletes from all over.
We shared are views and techniques on how to do the best we can and improve our posture which impacts our daily performances, no matter what mother nature throws at us and like Mat proved to everyone in attendance, it all starts from the womb. Our mommy’s health to the way we start exploring the world as soon as we open our eyes from the very first time will have an impact on our posture for years to come. Unavoidable steps must be integrated. Simple tasks like grabbing, crawling, reaching, climbing and let our toes, fingers, skin and eyes explore every elements coming our way.
Our posture dictate how well we can perform everyday tasks and how awesome our body is supposed to perform. For some, posture will have a tremendous impact on their health, body and mind, positively or often times, negatively.
Our job as coaches and therapists is to improve the quality of life of the person sitting in front of us, with the best information available. We must do so intelligently by educating them so they can understand the process of it all, what went wrong and what can be done to make it better.
With progress, skilled strength coaches can incorporate training protocols to improve our strength and hypertrophy gains, the thoughts and psychology of it all, by implementing simple nutrition and supplementation protocols maximize results. That is what this course was all about. It’s all about having a well thought out plan, from A to Z with a little help of great coaches.

Here are a few pearls of our last seminar
– A bad posture can lead to weakened ligament and cartilage, increased production of stress hormones , inflammation , reduced immune system function , decreased sleep , digestion, and overall energy levels. The more the posture of a person is affected, the less power they have for thought, metabolism and healing. -Taken from Anette Verpillot
– Losers visualize the penalties of failure, winners visualize the rewards of success.
– With a focus on the problems and pain of the goal, your mind magically deletes the positives, the potential fun and your optimistic outcome. Focusing on the positives deletes procrastination.
– Over thinking the required steps to any goal creates stress. Research has shown that when you are stressed the brain actually shrinks in size. Over thinkers make an easy task complicated by predicting too many problems
– People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it.
Stay tuned for our next seminar in october, more info coming soon…
