In Wellness Force Radio episode 164, Co-Founder, Strength Coach, and Movement Specialist of The Low Back Fix as well as Former Co-Owner and Co-Founder of San Diego Athletics, Writer for the Whole Life Challenge, Strength Specialist at Movement Rx, and Author of The Performance Lifestyle, Anders Varner joins us to share his own personal journey from CrossFit to discovering his own Yin & Yang and inner strength through stillness.
Discover how Anders' Breath, Balance, and Behavior methodology can help you heal through breath work and meditation.
Yin Strength Training is the most effective form of physical rehabilitation that exists. You are not broken, you will heal, and you will learn why you were in pain in the first place.
The long-term benefits of Yin Strength Training, however, are cultivated through practice. Learning how your body moves, feeling muscles activate, connecting the breath to movement, creativity, and developing a purpose centered around physical freedom.
Learn how to find the root cause of your pain and get specific daily guidance on what to do and when to do it. The Low Back Fix is interactive and designed for action with these benefits:
"Fitness goes well past the movements, tissues, and joints. It's about behavioral health, but how do we even begin creating good habits? A lot of people will get burned out because they think being fit means going all out every time they exercise." - Anders Varner
"Even though I've been meditating for over three years, I still struggle with focusing on my breath. That's what makes me come back to it because it's such a skill to be able to slow down and be in the moment. The slower you breathe, the better you get at it and that in itself is a challenge." - Anders Varner
"Meditating really helps to peel back the layers that allow you to uncover ultimate truths, what motivates you, where you want your life to go, and how to create your next path. You don't want to attach yourself to the next big thing that comes along or continue to be someone who is unhealthy. Work through some of your stories and then rebuild from there." - Anders Varner
"When I opened my business, I lost all of my friends that I used to hang out with at the gym. I went from about 300 to 4 friends because I had to change. I had to move on from my old life and recreate everything about me. Everyone has that opportunity to change; you just have to be comfortable with your own growth and know that you have to keep going so that you can be authentic to yourself." - Anders Varner
"Pain is a response that happens because something is not right. The brain doesn't have enough mechanisms to handle those dysfunctional movement patterns or inflammation so it sends the pain signal. Many people need a medical doctor, but most people just need to relax and get rid of all the negative energy in their lives. They need to slow down, unwind, and focus on their breathing as a way to heal." - Anders Varner
