What IS Real Strength Now?

Real Strength Now is a method of exercise that evolved from my lifetime study of martial arts, yoga, Pilates, and weight training. It is the distillation of theses multiple disciplines to find the one common denominator, the absolute key to health.

Do you know what the pelvic floor is, what it does, where it is and how to exercise it? Do you understand that your diaphragm is responsible for clearing your body of 70 per cent of its toxins as it massages your heart and stimulates your lymphatic system, ridding the body of dead cells and disease? Did you know that we lose 85 percent of our bodyfat through exhalation? Were you aware that without progressive resistance, your exercise routine is ineffective for building strength, muscle mass, and maintaining bone-density?

Truth is: The majority of people training in gyms and weight rooms are either in the process of injuring themselves or just ‘going through the motions’ without getting any real results.

Real Strength Now is a method of conscious breath combined with conscious movement designed to enhance the feeling of overall well-being. Making the body stronger, as it increases endurance and strengthens the immune system, working from the inside, out.

  • I’ve been a bodybuilder for many years. As an ex police officer, strength, speed and endurance were always important. My best bench press was 400 pounds. Retired by a back injury Real Strength Now has been a fundamental part of my rehabilitation and recovery from surgery. It’s brought me back to the gym. Now, when I train with weights I add the diaphragmatic breath and other techniques that RSN teaches. My strength is returning, along with a greater understanding of how the body works and the importance of conscious diaphragmatic breathing.

  • As an ex-competitive athlete, playing at a professional level, I let my body go when I retired. For many years, I stopped training, put on weight, allowed my muscles to atrophy and felt lousy about my general state of being. Some part of me was searching for a spark of light of inspiration. That’s when I met Richard; someone with a command of not just the body and how to train it, but in the way that the body interacts with the mind through the breath, and that made all the difference. His mind/body workouts are fast, efficient and always serve to reconnect me with the best part of my self, the disciplined self that understands the need for training, perseverance and balance in order to achieve a steady state of health and well-being.

  • When I met Richard La Plante he said, “Give me three minutes a day and I’ll change your life.” Two years, twenty five pounds, and 100 cholesterol points later I am still giving him three minutes a day. But more important than the specific gains and losses is Richard La Plante taught me to forgive myself. He taught me that it’s never too late to change. That change begins with breathing. And if we lose our way or give up we simply start again. Three minutes at a time.

  • I have been practicing and teaching yoga professionally for 25 years and think enough of Richard La Plante and the way he uses the Breathing Stick for breath and movement to invite him to teach a regular class at my Sacred Space Studio in Ojai, California. No matter what discipline you practice, his method of training will enhance and deepen your understanding of the way diaphragmatic breathing coordinates with the rhythms and natural motions of the human body.
