Tom McCook, founder and director of Center of Balance, is an internationally recognized Pilates teacher and movement specialist. Tom’s mission is to improve people’s lives through movement to cultivate health and body wisdom. 

Tom joins us to discuss the importance of mobility and movement, how daily movement can transform our mental health, the importance of properly warming up our joints, and more. 

“As you age, one of the things that we don’t tend to think about very much is our joints. We don’t tend to think about our joints until they hurt.”

“If movement feels good, you look forward to it.” 

“You can change your health. You can improve your health. And it doesn’t have to be ridiculous. You can start with a half an hour a day. Start with a small amount.”

“You have to move on a regular basis to keep yourself mentally fit, present, optimistic in your life, and actually resourceful. It’s so important.” 

“If you’re in a slightly depressed, down mood, you can do 15-20 minutes of movement and totally shift your mood.” 

“If you want to age well, you need to learn how your body is designed.”
