Posture – Is Yours Good or Bad?

As a woman who has worked in an office setting, I have done my fair share of sitting down.  As a personal trainer, I know how important posture is. In order for the individual body to function properly, that body needs to be assessed.

Postural and movement assessments are essential when determining programming for individual clients, and that is within the first few sessions based on individual goals.

I found this awesome graphic from braceability.com that efficiently explains the benefits of good posture.

Here are a few activation and stability exercises you can do anywhere you feel comfortable, and remember to talk to a doctor before starting any exercise program.
