Hey my friends, well it's Step 2 of my Handstand Walking tutorial....it's basic, simple stuff but you know what it works GREAT in getting new folks not only into a handstand, but doing Handstand walking! How well does it work? Well at just one CNT course a few years back we got all 23 students into holding a Handstand within 20 minutes....and that's 23 who had never even tried a handstand before!! Out of that 23, we then got 15 to walk on their hands in the next 5 minutes....no problem. So simple works just liket we teach at our Certified Natural Training (CNT) courses!!

Thoughts on Simple & Strong training and living!

Some thoughts:)
Today the world is all about getting everything now....a microwave culture of wanting immediate results. It has become an impatient place to live, short attention spans, short term results and then constant changes to find the quick answer....so what's the truth?
I feel it is the story of the tortoise and the hare. We've all heard it before....they race, the hare takes off and is way ahead, begins to gloat, laugh it up and become distracted...allowing the tortoise to catch him, pass him and win the race.
The moral of the story; is don't rush thru life as you miss out on all the beauty and glory of the slow path, the true path. When i think about taking the slower path v. the faster path, its easy to see why this is especially important today for many reasons....by rushing thru life we miss out on alot...to keep this short i'm going to talk about fitness and health only here:
