One of the first things I evaluate during a client assessment is the client’s posture. I find most people benefit significantly when they follow the posture exercises I develop for them. They quickly experience the benefits and incorporate the posture exercises into their regular personal training exercise program.
Below is a short video with two of my clients, Darlene and Ken, speaking about how they have benefited from incorporating posture exercises into their programs. They are clients of both Function to Fitness Physiotherapy and Personal Training in Ottawa and my online service, MelioGuide.
Benefits of Posture Exercises
Darlene and Ken both identify a number of benefits of an improved posture through posture exercises:
- Improved personal presentation and confidence. As Darlene says, “I have become aware of the difference it makes when I stand straight and strong.”
- Increased flexibility and strength in the upper body.
- Significant health benefits such as reduction of the incidence of migraines and back pain.
- Injury prevention.
Lastly, I would like to point out that good posture is the foundation to osteoporosis treatment and prevention.
