Old Things Can Become New

People often prefer new and shiny things. I think we are designed to do this. After all, new is exciting. But we also crave old things like memories, tastes, smells, and feelings. Older things can bring comfort in a world where new seems always to fade. 

Original Strength is a company that teaches the oldest strength-building routine in the world, which is personalized to each individual's body. This original, old routine involves using the vestibular and nervous systems designed and built specifically for our bodies. 

Living in our design, we naturally developed strength as babies by controlling our heads, rolling over, crawling, and walking. However, as we grew up, we “moved” away from our design and became sitters, stressors, and worriers, causing our bodies to adapt to these changes. 

We can shift the direction of change through Original Strength's Movement Restoration System, which aims to help people regain some of the strength and movement they had as children. With Pressing RESET, we can even help people renew their bodies by recovering quicker and potentially eliminating the need for medications and surgeries.
