In this episode we talk all about movement - how to move better and how to move more!
Alexandra Ellis is the creator of AE Wellness, host of The Body Nerd Show, a Motivational Speaker, and a Mobility Coach who helps active people move smarter, maintain their bodies, and maximize strength with a customized wellness plan so they can enjoy life without pain. Her teaching and studies focus on injury prevention, rehabilitation and wellness, inspired by her studies at UC Davis where she earned a BS in Exercise Biology. Her programs have helped people worldwide get stronger and out of pain so they can step into their greatest potential.
In this episode, we discuss:
· Movement vs. exercise and the role both play in our lives.
· The importance of incorporating a variety of movement into our days.
· How exactly sitting for long periods of time negatively affects our bodies.
· The one fundamental thing we all need to focus on but often gets forgotten.
· Why it’s important to develop more awareness of our bodies so we can become the expert and better understand what it’s trying to tell us.
· The Big 3 movements we should all focus on and why.
· What mobility is why you should focus on that instead of strength or flexibility.
· And how to incorporate more variety of movement throughout your day.
