Fitness Friday: Engage those glutes!

By   0 Comments

In last week’s installment of Fitness Friday, our fitness training partner, Laura Coleman, showed us both one of the root problems of core and hip instability (not crawling as a baby) and then how to fix it (crawl like a baby – so much harder than it sounds).

This week, she takes this basic-but-not-so-basic skill of crawling in new directions. Literally. She demonstrates how crawling in a different direction engages your glutes – such important but often unused muscles. Let’s just say you don’t get a beautiful Brazilian-shaped bootie without using those important guys!


Fitness Friday with Laura Coleman: Engage those glutes! |

Laura Coleman - Laura Coleman rocked my world a few years back when she helped me get to the root of all the knee and lower-back issues I’d had since my teens. In just a couple of sessions, Laura put me on a simple program of rehab exercises (unlike any I’d ever seen before) that brought my body back into alignment and actually fixed the problem that no physiotherapist, massage therapist, or chiropractor had ever been able to solve. I was hooked! We’ve been terrific friends and shared many clients since, and I’m delighted that she has offered to share her wisdom with all of you via this Fitness Friday video series. Laura lives in Portland, OR with her two gorgeous daughters. She works her magic at Club Sport and with clients all over the continent via the magic of technology (aka Skype). Check out her blog and website here.
