I'd like to send my deepest thanks to Coach Sonnon and his team for forcing me to remain humble. I first came across RMAX nearly a year ago. At the time, I had just overcome an old knee injury (or so I thought). I had purchased Warrior Wellnes, Be Breathed, BodyFlow, and Softwork within a short time. I quickly realized that Softwork was beyond my skill level, so I concentrated on the other three. To make a long story short, I paid for my arrogance.
I jumped into BodyFlow, and I had much fun with it. Until, that is, I realized that my knee wasn't nearly as healed as I had thought. I re-aggravated my injury (sprained & torn ligaments, minor meniscal tear), which drastically cut down my mobility. It hurt to stand. After wallowing in depression for a while, my lovely significant other convinced me to either stop whining or do something about it. (I require some tough love from time to time.) So, Warrior Wellness became my sole physical activity for months (other than routine daily movement). At some point, this just became second nature I suppose: wake up-->Warrior Wellness-->start my day.
During that time, I resumed my martial training with little difficulty. This alone was great. But about a month ago, while entertaining friends (mostly boring dinner party) in our cramped apartment, I found myself sitting in a kneeling position (seiza for you Japanese budo folks). I hadn't been able to do that in years!! I mean that literally. The very next day, I waged a little fun and found that squats and kneels were, once again, within my grasp. I nearly wept, I was so happy.
So now, with a better understanding of incremental progression, I'm now exploring my physical capabilities once again. I'm starting to play with some Body Flow and FlowFit® (a recent purchase). Both of them are kicking my butt, but in a good way this time.
My heart-felt thanks, once again, to Coach Sonnon.
