How to Use the Pwr up on all fours
Hi, I'm Cat from the PWR!Gym. And today we're going to talk about why and how we use our PWR! Up on All Fours for everyday life. So, I'm actually going to show you why I use that PWR! Up to get up off the floor. So, we've mentioned in other videos that we need that PWR! Up to be able to get our posture up, get that extension in our bodies, so that then we can move from that position to remind you, our PWR! Up, we push back, we get all our weight back towards the heels. We push up and open and how we're going to use that with our chair. We're going to push back, come up, hold that chair. With that PWR!ed Up posture now we can step and stand up off the floor. And that is why we use our PWR! Up in All Fours.
Our goal is to make sure you’re always empowered and informed.
We offer handouts, downloads, research updates, Wellness Series talks, retreats with knowledgeable speakers, in-person and virtual wellness consultations, and in-person physical therapy visits. We are here for our PWR! Members every step of the way.
We’re excited to have you join us!
