Throughout the month of May Think Fit. Be Fit. went on a deep dive of the core. This is the 6th episode in that series.
Here’s the summary of May’s core-centric episodes:
All of these episodes are my attempt to think independently about exercise so that I can make the best decisions for myself, athletes and clients. There is a sad movement in fitness in which education is barely emphasized and the industry is full of time-wasting (and possibly dangerous) fluff. The final episode of May’s core focused episodes is a conversation on challenging the body with a tool that can give us a spectrum of resistance around the body, the KI-RO Core Trainer.
Meet my esteemed colleague and friend, Kika Mela, Co-Owner of Mela Therapeutics, Inc. and the creator of the Ki-RO Core Trainer. She is a Master Level MAT Specialist, MAT Rx Specialist, and has been a Licensed Massage Therapist for 25 yrs. She has worked extensively with professional and elite athletes and is a contributor to the training process at Bommarito Performance Systems as part of their medical team.
Kika and I discuss a number of things related to athletic performance, muscles and movements, how her invention the KiRo helps address the flaws in training this part of the body.
