The freedom to enjoy moving until you want to stop, rather than your pain telling you to quit now. To relish your weekend adventure without regretting what you did on Monday or choosing the couch on Sunday so you have the energy to get through your week.
All you need is the Move More without Regrets program – just an hour a week of gentle movement so you can learn to move with strength and stamina without fear of straining or injuring yourself. Learn to reverse the widening gap between your willing spirit and your aging body.
This program is for you if you feel young and adventurous on the inside but feel small signs of aging showing up on the outside – the joint pain that never quite goes away, longer recovery time from having fun the way you used to or choosing to just stay in, again, so the memory of your last adventure gets a little further away in your rear-view mirror.
Improved balance – “Fall mitigation has been my goal for the last 2 years but I still have issues with balance. We addressed more in these few weeks working with Cheryl than I have working the last couple of years with trainers and the walking process. You have to have balance when you are moving. It is ok to work on balance when you are standing but that is not when you fall.” Marlene
Awareness of movement – “I fell a few times catastrophically after having chemo. Working on my journey to regain the muscle mass and a lot of strength I lost at that time. What I was surprised with – the outcome was different than the goal. My goal was to be better balanced. I met my goal but that became almost secondary. I needed to be more aware of how I was moving. This has become for me, some me-time, an hour just to focus on learning to slow down and move properly.” Dawn
No longer feeling powerless – “I am working through a medical diagnosis for a chronic condition. I feel uplifted and hopeful after working with Cheryl. She has this way of offering possible paths of relief while accepting my physical reality. Using a wine metaphor, I’d describe Cheryl as hopeful with an aftertaste of pragmatism. She respects my need to be in charge of my life and my abilities to handle the situation. Together we explore what might be possible. This is really helpful to me – it is easy to feel powerless, to believe my condition will only get worse. I may have what I have, but I feel like it doesn’t get to have me. Sharon
Hi, I’m Cheryl Whitelaw. My honest answer is – I don’t know when it first happened to me. I have been active for years, working out, gardening, paddling. And working long hours at a job I was passionate about. And then one day, I couldn’t really turn to the right. I was barely 40 with a low back that moved like a hard plastic corset. When I started coaching over 10 years ago, I knew in my bones that I needed to get moving and help my clients move more so they could keep doing all of the things they yearned to do. It’s in our choices. Choosing not to move because you are in pain. Or choosing to push yourself no matter how much it hurts until you injure yourself. Often choosing to leave your inner adventurous self on the shelf.
I offer my clients another choice – to learn how to move so they can move more without regrets.
