Fit It Forward: Teach A Friend To Squat

If you care about them, teach them to squat.
The squat is the foundation of human movement. You squat before you walk. It can be an exercise, when done many times, or it can be a test when never done at all. It’s perhaps the single-most important barometer of your physical capacity: are you flexible and strong enough to sit on your haunches and stand back up?
If your friend can’t squat, they need you to pull them up. If your husband can’t squat, you’ll soon be lifting him. Teaching a loved one to squat is giving them a “get-out-of-the-nursing-home FREE!” card. So let’s start there.
Today, teach a friend to squat. A good one: hips back, chest up, heels down. We’ll provide the treat: if you can coach them to ONE good squat, we’ll give them a FREE  personal training session with a Catalyst coach.
Get them squatting. Take their picture. Email it to, or post it on our facebook page
with a tag. We’ll take it from there.
If they’re a friend of yours, they’re a friend of ours. We’re happy to help if you’ll get them started.
Need help teaching them? Here’s a downloadable PDF to give them (below), and here’s a link to a video demo on our site.
