Craig Ramsay is here to show us that we no longer have to stress out over an intense workout regimen, and that building our physical and emotional fitness can be a fun and enjoyable process.
It's no secret that exercise can be overwhelming when we go into it with the all-or-nothing mentality. This approach can lead to health activities that don't resonate with us emotionally and cause us to quit when we don't attain certain fitness goals. We can avoid this situation by finding fun and healthy ways to improve our fitness no matter where we are, and by building more excitement and laughter into the process.
When we engage in workouts that really light us up inside and let go of the stress that comes with always having to be perfect, we are going to thrive emotionally, become healthier, and transform our physique.
Most people are unaware of their poor posture and movement habits, and this can have a greater impact on our health than we realize.
We don't have to seek out a yoga or pilates class to improve our posture and ability to stretch. We can start to increase our awareness for how we move and better our bodies' alignment by using certain techniques right away.
Craig recommends that we picture holding a washcloth in the back part of our armpit.
Simply doing this is going to help us elevate the chest, push the shoulders back and down, and allow us to breathe better and fuel our bodies with more oxygen.
This improvement in our posture will help us move throughout our day with intention, intensity, and purpose.
When Craig trained the women from the hit TV show on Bravo, "The Real Housewives," they allowed him to change their workouts and also their eating plans, but had 1 very serious stipulation:
He was not allowed to take away their wine!
Since Craig was a trained contortionist, ballet dancer, and stretching expert, he had no problem coming up with a fun way to incorporate the ladies' love for wine and his love for stretching and moving the body.
Craig knew about the scientific research showing that minimal amounts of wine can have benefits to our health and also chemically improve our ability to stretch. That is when his new exercise class was born:
Stretch - A Reason To Wine!
His class includes a 5 wine tasting flight, which he pairs together with a stretch that matches the taste and experience of each wine. He finds his participants feeling great, becoming more comfortable in a social fitness environment, and having a wonderful time in the process.
