It’s Day #1 of our 21-Day commitment to LEVELING UP!

This is the beginning of a 21-day journey to discovering our 10 Essential Habits to help you move freely and live fully. This 21-Day Challenge is taken directly from the Built To Move book. Following along with each day’s videos will get you moving more, addressing and eliminating pain, eating & sleeping better, and much, much more. Each day will include an Intro Video as well accompanying Mobilization Videos. The first ten days will also include the Test/Retest videos for each of the 10 Essential Habits. We highly recommend following ALL the videos, including the mobilizations, as they will help you recover from the day’s activities so you can go again tomorrow.
