Series Description

Do you value movement and feeling good? Guided is a series of follow along videos that will help you unlock movement and improve your life. True freedom awaits. Press play and start moving. Guided is designed to make you feel good.

Are you tired of waking up tired and stiff? Stretches not working? Most of us think being stiff in the shoulders and tight in the hips is normal. Most people think we have to lose our natural mobility and functional body as we age. Especially after a transplant. The truth is, we simply aren’t working with the proper tools to stay free in our bodies and our second chance at life suffers as a result.

The culprit is mainstream fitness. The fitness industry is mostly about looks. Glute exercises, six pack abs and heavy lifting are flashy and trendy, but do they actually make you feel good? The information on keeping your body feeling strong and loose is harder to find and as you become more stiff in your body, it takes more and more of your attention and makes you live more in your mind.

How can you be the best version of yourself when your body isn’t feeling as good as it can?

The Guided series of videos are follow-along routines with voiceovers to guide you through form and technique all done from home with no equipment required.

Guided can be the way to transform your body the right way and celebrate your second chance at life.
