Brandon Harris
Co-Founder/Personal Trainer

For Brandon, fitness has been his passion for as long as he can remember. In high school he was a three-sport athlete and received a scholar athlete award in football. Later, he attended Arizona State University on an academic scholarship and received his degree in Kinesiology in 2004. When he was a junior in college, he started Personal Training and has since turned this into his career. Brandon is a natural teacher who is passionate about health, fitness, wellness, and life. Each and every day he feels blessed to be able to do what he loves most…help people achieve a healthier life! Working with his best friend and having clients who he considers to be his family is one of the best jobs he could ever wish for. What he loves most about being a personal trainer is helping his clients achieve what they thought was the “impossible”!

Brandon’s philosophy is that exercise and fitness should be viewed as preventive medicine. If one takes care of his/her body today, he/she will stay healthy for the remainder of his/her life. His main focus is on functional training that incorporates normal daily movements which strengthen core muscle groups and help deliver a functionally fit body. This body will then be efficient with all activities, from athletics to everyday movements.

Some thoughts on variability.
-
Most things on social media require more context. What is the purpose? What is the science? Is the insight based on personal experiences? I try typically to provide insight into my thoughts and be careful when presenting ideas that they are not absolutes. Most things operate in the grey and more context and perspective help create a clearer understanding.
-
Variability is the ability to be flexible and adaptable. We want movement options of relative joints and the ventral cavity. These are things we want as humans. Having metabolic flexibility, calorie adaptability and the ability to buffer stress are important qualities. Having the ability to create rigidity when needed (under load, stress) but also being able to be loose and supple also when needed (reacting, producing speed and power). These are good qualities to have. Your spine is something most of us want to be variable and have flexibility. The only person I can think of that might not need this is a elite power lifter. To much variability would probably have a negative effect on their performance. Even if it would be beneficial to their health.
-
Some simple spine movement I do every day. Seated is a good way to start. Less things to focus on. Also a seated position makes it hard to extend which is a typical compensation. The idea is flexing and extending the spine while keeping the lumbar still (as much as positively). Inhale in flexion and exhale in extension. High volume, low intensity. Then progress to circles with the same intent.
