We coaches, trainers, doctors, therapists etc, are just tutors, facilitators, guides. We help you figure out how to get yourself in the best position possible to adapt and thrive in life. We don’t fix you, heal you, or make you more resilient. At some point you need to grow up and take the reigns. .
.
And FYI...training is not for weight loss.
.
.
It is not an efficient method to addressing excess fat on the body.
.
.
Stress, sleep and eating are the main reasons for any metabolic concerns and for addressing fat loss. And those should be addressed with severity.
.
.
Training is to teach the body how to absorb the forces or life so we don’t get injured and die basically. How to walk, climb, sit, stand, turn, hang...all movements needed to survive. It could be for a sport or a manual labor job or how to just get up off the toilet and survive a fall.
.
.
Training is to help us fight infection, sickness and disease, divorce or breakups, deaths in the family, physical assaults from others. Why we train has to come from internal motivation eventually otherwise we will not be able to sustain the degree of what American training is marketing. And we fall off, become injured, or bail because of our training motivation, and then are worse off than when we started and not only do we feel we let ourselves down but now our team of trainers we’ve employed along the way.
. .
Training is a 7 day a week, 3-4 times a day event...it’s movement.
.
.
Our culture is only physical when we pay for it and this needs to change if we are to get any healthier and happier as a nation.
.
.
Use your professional as a guide, to ask for help, guidance, and to answer your own questions about your journey.
.
.
But understand this...you taught yourself how to walk, deadlift and squat in a year...perfectly.
.
.
You train you. Boom. #health #healing #mentalhealth #dontcutmykid #minimizeinjury #maximizeperformance #drtommyjohn #tommyjohnsolution #rehab #physicaltherapy #therapy #trainlikeababy #neverstopmoving #wellness #fitness #besteffort #meditation #passion #purpose #youthsports #youthsportstraining #sportsinjury #sportsperformance #sportsspecialization #glutes #hamstrings #ghd

My sentiment exactly!!
.
.
It doesn’t matter what sport they play or if they play one at all. It doesn’t matter how old the person is. It doesn’t matter if the human athlete has ever sustained an injury before or not.
.
.
This book...if followed and applied, will change the life of your entire family for many years to come.

Always have loved this. And I feel we’ve gotten away from the preparation side to anything.
.
.
Our culture is guilty of breeding people who expect instantaneous results. Instant growth. Instant healing. Instant performance. Instant relationships. Instant success.
.
.
Nature leaves clues as to how we should be living and learning. And if we look at the most basic side of nature that HAS to follow natural law, a moth needs the struggle inside of the cocoon in order to build up the strength it needs to survive once it breaks out. If anyone prematurely were to cut open the cocoon to help it the moth would die having not developed to survive.
.
.
The struggle is nature’s way of strengthening. 80% of martial arts disciplines are training, constant training. Game day should be the easiest day. Your preparation needs to exceed your performance. Always. #praisethelard #health #healing #mentalhealth #dontcutmykid #minimizeinjury #maximizeperformance #drtommyjohn #tommyjohnsolution #rehab #physicaltherapy #therapy #trainlikeababy #neverstopmoving #wellness #fitness #besteffort #meditation #passion #purpose #youthsports #youthsportstraining #sportsinjury #sportsperformance #sportsspecialization #glutes #hamstrings #ghd

Sunset Meditative Minute. Another bombass day in the books. How did you improve today? Be better tomorrow than you were today. Learn something. Change something. Heal something. Try something. Grow something. Say something. Forget something. Leave something. Move something. Smell something. Touch something. You get the idea. Live. All of it. Get drunk on life. High on possibility. #sunset #health #healing #mentalhealth #dontcutmykid #minimizeinjury #maximizeperformance #drtommyjohn #tommyjohnsolution #rehab #physicaltherapy #therapy #trainlikeababy #neverstopmoving #wellness #fitness #besteffort #meditation #passion #purpose #youthsports #youthsportstraining #sportsinjury #sportsperformance #sportsspecialization

Supplement Saturday.
.
.
Just made that up:) And to be honest I’m not a big fan of supplements as when you travel down that rabbit hole it can get out of control on what you “should” take or are “supposed” to take. And most people now use supplements as a replacement for thing like:
.
Shopping for and making almost all of your own meals, moving your body all day long, good sleep and regular naps, meditation or prayer, sun exposure and outdoor experiences, a tight social community experience.
.
I also believe that the supplement market today is being touted as a way of being unaccountable for much in your life regarding health and performance but you can hammer this mountain of supplements to satisfy your poor discipline and lack of self control.
.
.
Just remember that if you do take supplements they are a SUPPLEMENT to massive healthy life choices.
.
.
Here’s my short list that I’ve been partial to some for 15 years or so. Mind you this is my list, check with someone before you just start taking these.
.
.
Morning Drink: Chlorophyll I just got back on when a friend of mine spoke of it. Used to take this stuff religiously. Creatine every for about the last 15 years. Iodine. Oregano oil. This shit will fry your gut lining if taken regularly so only use sparingly. Raw honey. I also toss in ACV not pictured as well.
.
.
Vitamin C and Magnesium: I put about 16,000mg of vitamin c (vitamincfoundation.org) and about 1200mg of magnesium in a glass bottle of water. Keep that in my office and take pulls off it daily. I don’t really measure anything as I let my body determine what it needs and when. Some days I slug it, some days I pass. Have been on these for 13 years or so.
.
.
I’m also a big believer in taking a monster break from everything. I will go a month or so of nothing just to give my body a break from shit coming from the outside in. Seems to be working so far. Remember supplements coexist with a healthy lifestyle. They are not a replacement for anything essential to Life. Quit looking for easy. Quit being lazy when it comes to the greatest you’ve ever been gifted...Life. #health #healing #mentalhealth #dontcutmykid #minimizeinjury #maximizeperformance #drtommy

Trends shift when something we care about more than ourselves is threatened. Maybe our phones being threatened will have us making better decisions when it comes to raising children in today’s society.
.
.
Obviously this is bunk news and slightly satirical but it proves a point. We are raising kids that are having to rehab from their childhoods physically, mentally and emotionally. .
.
It’s so much deeper and bigger than youth sports injuries.
.
.
There isn’t a single finger that is gong to stop this leak in the damn of our dysfunctional society when it’s overflowing from the top.
.

Follow @kellybroganmd and read and listen and learn. Stay tuned. Shit got me fired up. #health #healing #mentalhealth #dontcutmykid #minimizeinjury #maximizeperformance #drtommyjohn #tommyjohnsolution #rehab #physicaltherapy #therapy #trainlikeababy #neverstopmoving #wellness #fitness #besteffort #meditation #passion #purpose #youthsports #youthsportstraining #sportsinjury #sportsperformance #sportsspecialization #glutes #hamstrings #ghd #kellybroganmd

Morning Meditative Minute.
.
.
After two days of this stuff that occasionally falls from the sky in California called rain, I woke up to this magic.
.
.
Take 5 Minutes everyday, everybody, people who need it most are the ones who think they aren’t stressed or processing something heavy. Guess what? Your subconscious is and since it runs 95% of your daily choices might want to focus on her a bit.
.
.
Breathe through your nose...as deep as you can...hold it for as long as you comfortably can...exhale out of your nose as slow as slow as slow as you can. It’s that exhale that boosts the recovery, rest and digest side of your nervous system. Repeat for 5 to ???? minutes.
.
.
Don’t judge yourself. There is no way to do it wrong. Just do it. Great for kids too as you’ll read in my book at:
.

.
.
These little growing dynamos are beyond overloaded and stressed and hence aren’t developing, growing and repairing how they could or should.
.
.
First thing we do on this planet and the last thing we do before leaving this body is BREATHE. Probably pretty important.
.
.
Boom.

It’s that time of year again. When Netflix offers this one up bc it knows I damn well adore this movie. I think we need to hear more heart. Who knows...maybe lightning will strike...in any part of your life. Although you may just end up having sex with Death incarnate. Lol. Outstanding. #movies #ilovemovies #meetjoeblack #moreheart #lesshead #thatswhatshesaid #passion #purpose #intention

A variation of the coffee I’ve been making for about the last 13 years now. Turkish ground organic coffee in a French press. Ghee. Baking soda. Raw cacao. Ceylon cinnamon. @wallacefarmsofficial bone Broth powder. Cashew milk or coconut or almond milk or HEAVY CREAM:). Raw honey. Not pictured is coconut oil. Blend. Boom. My eating approach is always eat when hungry. People wonder why I’m rarely hungry til dinner. Lol. Too many healthy reasons to drink coffee and keep the ingredients pure. An amazing amazing part of your day. #coffeeishealthy #chewyourcoffee #health #healing #mentalhealth #dontcutmykid #minimizeinjury #maximizeperformance #drtommyjohn #tommyjohnsolution #rehab #physicaltherapy #therapy #trainlikeababy #neverstopmoving #wellness #fitness #besteffort #meditation #passion #purpose #youthsports #youthsportstraining #sportsinjury #sportsperformance #sportsspecialization #glutes #hamstrings #ghd

Met @rosannaqueirolo this badass Grade A lady beast at the Conclave of Warriors in Miami this last weekend. Amazing woman doing amazing things...and she just got done doing a Ted Talk. (Cue giddy reaction.) Chatted with her briefly about some movements she could focus on and she’s already rockin’ them. And I believe she is under the weather in these vids. Like I said...lady...beast. So many connections made with some of the kindest and most powerful minds, bodies and souls I’ve ever met. Well done @imrachelconde @manofwarr @manofwarpodcast @bedroskeuilian @brent_gleeson @therealbradlea @andysziraki @raycashcare @jasonredmanww @dobynsjay BOOM. #health #healing #mentalhealth #dontcutmykid #minimizeinjury #maximizeperformance #drtommyjohn #tommyjohnsolution #rehab #physicaltherapy #therapy #trainlikeababy #neverstopmoving #wellness #fitness #besteffort #meditation #passion #purpose #youthsports #youthsportstraining #sportsinjury #sportsperformance #sportsspecialization #glutes #hamstrings #ghd
