I will be eternally grateful to you for how you healed by back!

I started training with Coach Berry when I was 61 years old.  For four months, I had suffered a great deal of back pain and knew I need to do something different. When I began with Coach, he asked me how I was feeling.  After a lifetime of training with a number of different trainers I could only say I didn't feel great.  My back pain caused me to see chiropractors and accupuncturists, but I found no relief.  After one deep tissue massage, Coach immediately had me feeling better.  After two months of training Coach had me back to 100%.  He knows what he is doing when it comes to training and injuries.  He trains people to perform exercises correctly to avoid injuries.  I have worked with many different trainers all over the San Diego County and Coach Berry is the best, most effective trainer I have meet.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their health and fitness levels.

Go easy on your joints. You need them for life.

Millions of people suffer from some type of arthritis, and while often considered an elderly disease, joint pain affects children and young adults. A joint is where two or more bones meet. Your shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, and ankles are some of the major joints in your body. When these joint are healthy, you can walk, run, bend over, and pick up objects with ease. But when your joints are sources of pain, these simple tasks can stop you in your tracks.

Contrary to what you may believe, arthritis isn’t an inevitable part of aging. Your joints were made to last until your dying day. And you can do things now to protect your joints from daily wear and tear to keep them healthy for as many years as you need them. Already suffer from a form of arthritis? These tips can benefit you as well.

I figured my body always would be able to repair itself. I think all of us believe that—until you begin to age and get hit with deteriorating joints. - Lee Majors

Save by Losing Weight

Carrying extra pounds around places stress on your joints. Your knees, ankles, and feet are most prone to developing problems if you’re overweight. Being a mere 10 pounds overweight can result in stress on your knees that feels like 60 pounds. One of the best ways to preserve healthy joints or relieve painful joints is by losing weight through diet and joint-friendly exercise.

Get Regular Exercise

Physical activity keeps your joints flexible, reduces stiffness, increases blood circulation to your joints to keep them healthy, strengthens the muscles that connect your joints to keep them from rubbing against each other, and helps you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight.

In the event you already have joint pain, continue with low-impact exercises that are gentle on your joints. Avoid activities such as climbing stairs, tennis, kickboxing, or running. Instead, stick with swimming, walking, cycling, tai chi, and the elliptical trainer. Strength training done with proper form may also benefit your joints by strengthening their surrounding muscles.

Following your work outs, take time to stretch. Spending a few minutes doing this will increase your joints’ range of motion. Focus on your legs, shoulders, and back.

Your personal trainer can help develop an exercise program that protects your joints. So take advantage of your trainer’s expertise for healthy joints.

Practice Good Posture

Standing and sitting with proper posture is a great way to take care of your joints. Slouching places a great deal of stress on your neck, back, hips, and even knees. Over time, bad posture will lead to discomfort in these joints.

Keep your body balanced and centered by practicing good posture. When you’re standing or sitting, keep your upper body upright. Imagine there’s a string attached to the top of your head or on the upper part of your chest pulling you up. Keep both your feet flat on the floor. When you bend or lift heavy objects, keep your back straight and bend at your knees or hips rather than your waist.

Eat a Joint-Friendly Diet

While there’s no super food to completely relieve joint pain, there are nutrients that seem to help protect your joints from damage. Calcium and vitamin D work to keep your bones strong, and strong bones help support healthy joints.
A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids may reduce your risk of developing certain types of arthritis and reduce inflammation in painful joints. Get omega-3s in fatty fish such as tuna, sardines, herring, and salmon.

You’ll also want to eat plenty of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables. The vitamins and minerals found in these plant foods help protect the cells of your joints.
