Balanced Bodies trainer Laura Cartwright is at it again. She's begun her training for the MS150 happening in May. Stay up to date with Laura's progress as she sets her sights on the 80 mile ride. Here's what she says about the ride:

"I'm not what most people would call athletic. I do work out regularly to be able to keep up my quality of life and continue to do the things I like to do.

I work with trainer Mark Albrecht here at Balanced Bodies on a program he designed for me. And it changes regularly to keep up with my interests and activities. For instance, it's ski season, and I really hope to hit the slopes this year so we're really focussed on leg strength and endurance.

And of course, now I've thrown an 80 mile bike ride into the mix so we've stepped up the core work. If the 21 mile training ride I did on Sunday is any gauge, I've got my work cut out for me."

Here's Laura doing a few push ups with Mark and additional trainer Simon (the one in the white coat...)

Mark believes that ongoing education is crucial!
.
.
That's why Mark keeps taking and re-taking courses.
.
In every course with Guy Voyer or Scott Herrera from @legacyeldoa he learns something new.
.
Maybe he knew an exercise really well already, but Mark always finds something more to add to it.
.
Keeping his beginner's mind helps him stay connected to his students and inspires him to continue teaching!
.
Eldoa 2 is right around the corner...
.
How important is it for you to continue learning?

What's your Eldoa?
.
The Eldoa position that Wendy demonstrates here targets a specific disc of the lumbar spine - the disc between the L2 and L3 vertebra.
.
Injuries such as spinal herniations, surgeries like spinal fusions, and other factors may determine which discs are most important for you to target. Then you can learn Eldoa stretches that target those discs.
.
Certified Eldoa practitioners can help you figure out which Eldoa are most important for you based on your goals and your body.
.
Want to learn more about Eldoa?
.
Stay tuned for upcoming Eldoa Courses at Balanced Bodies in Austin, Texas!

Mark’s Story

Mark Albrecht, Balanced Bodies owner, is a master instructor of corrective exercise and wellness. He has a keen eye for diagnosing structural issues and prescribing the most effective exercise routine for you. One of sixteen active ELDOA Instructors® in the world, Mark leads ELDOA certification programs for practitioners who want to deepen their personal practice or teach ELDOA to their own clients.

Mark is an effective teacher because he has a student’s mind. Learning is a priority for him. Over the course of his 20+ year career, he earned many certifications including CHEK Practitioner Level II, ELDOA Certified Trainer, and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P).

His journey into the wellness world began in 1995 when Mark first decided to pursue a career in fitness. He moved to Texas for the weather and earned his B.S. in Exercise & Sports Science from Texas State University.

Mark met his wife, Wendy, in college. They live in Austin, Texas with their two children, Mason and Kendra. At the age of 7, when Kendra was diagnosed with “S” curve scoliosis, Mark put ELDOA to the test. If left untreated, scoliosis could permanently alter the structural integrity of her spine.
