The above link has an article reviewing the Tai Cheng program I wrote about yesterday. It seems more like a press release from Beachbody but at the end there was some interesting information.
"Who is Dr. Mark Cheng?He is a world renowned kettlebell trainer who studied under one of Bruce Lee’s greatest disciples, and now leads workshops in strength and fitness training around the work. He specializes in rehabilitative fitness, RKC System strength training, and Chinese martial arts through his private medical institute in California. Trained in Chinese traditional medicine and an accomplished master of Tai Chi, Dr. Mark Cheng brings his knowledge, experience, and expertise to others through a variety of different venues. Through all of them however he approaches his practice in a clear, simple, and focused manner, helping others achieve tangible results while respecting and taking care of their bodies.
What are the results that you will be able to expect through Tai Cheng? Think of your body as a car. While the engine and the gasoline are what people traditionally focus on, Tai Cheng will work at strengthening the frame of the car, the actual body on which the engine sits so that it can take corners at high speeds, respond to commands with fluid ease and support the strain demanded of it by a powerful engine. Were you to focus solely on strength then it would be akin to placing a powerful engine in a weak car, resulting in injury and ruin. Instead, Tai Cheng will improve your health and general fitness by focusing on your balance, flexibility, core strength, power, and joints.
Dr. Mark Cheng’s Tai Cheng is not a revolutionary approach to fitness because it is in fact an ancient one, a method perfected over thousands of years and which has helped its practitioners achieve long lasting health that will sustain them not just for a year or two of peak conditioning but for the rest of their long lives"
