The secret to success is overcoming your habitual quitting place

If I have success, what does that mean? And, how am I going to live up to it again?

Sound like a familiar inner voice?

The ones who conquer it, hear it loud and clear.

They know it exists but they do not surrender.

The ones who are defeated by it usually never hear it in the first place.

It has...

Vision and breath training post-double lung transplant

Using applied neurology to retrain breathing and vision from Taylor Kruse on Vimeo.


Some people are clients.

Some people are students.

I jokingly say to my students, "I'm trying to entertain you long enough so that I can really help you!"

Because, real changes in health don't come from a...

The secret to training speed is moving faster than you did before

education performance Apr 17, 2017

All athletes want to be faster.

Most have never truly trained for speed before.


Because just moving as fast as you can is not actually improving the speed that you can move.

It's making you better at moving at that exact speed but not any faster.

There are great benefits to moving quickly...

Develop your fitness and rehab your injuries at the same time

education health pain recovery Apr 13, 2017

The TMP vision has always been to create an experience that bridges the gap between rehab and fitness.

Freedom of Movement from Taylor Kruse on Vimeo.

16 years ago I met a mentor who changed my life, Thomas Barbeau.

He introduced me to his mentor (Dr. Igor Burdenko) and all of a sudden I found myself in the middle of what we call the "essence of exercise" - a somewhat lost training art...

Are you training or are you exercising?

Most training systems are output based.

Let's use an Olympic lift or throwing as an example output.

Both patterns require a harmony of different movements coming together at exactly the right time.

What determines the quality of the output is the quality of the input!

More than 70% of our...

Insight into the ongoing battle of intellectual property in fitness

Uncategorized Apr 05, 2017

A push up is just a push up.

A squat is just a squat.

Movements like these are all part of basic human performance.

We didn't discover them.

They were given to us as a gift.

They don't belong to anyone.

They were already there for us.

There are only so many ways that we can move.

Get too...

Do you really need to warmup?

education performance Apr 02, 2017

Sounds strange, I know!

First thing to realize is that if it's taking you a long time to feel prepared enough to exercise, there are some underlying metabolic factors involved.

This is not ok!

Regardless of what our fitness culture has taught us, humans are designed to kick ass immediately when...

Are you striving for fitness or for health?

education health Mar 28, 2017

It's funny how this works.

I assess young athletes all the time that play a year round sport but they are unable to stand on one leg.

I assess successful...
