It might be that someone is overwhelmed or intimidated once they get into the gym. Perhaps it’s that someone wants fast results and quits when they aren’t seeing progress in a short period of time. Someone may feel like they don’t have the time to commit to a workout regime or they don’t have support from family and friends. But what about those individuals who do workout but aren’t seeing the results they want?

Then I was introduced to Tory Dube, a holistic life coach. (Seriously check her out, as she is awesome!) I signed up for her 3 month one-on-one coaching program followed by her group coaching program in hopes that she could help me with my next phase of my journey.

Unstable surface training merged its way into gym settings and quickly gained popularity in the fitness world, as a means to build strength, flexibility, improve posture along with the excitement of exercise selection.
