Tai Chi is the perfect low impact body and mind exercise that can help to counteract the stresses and strains of regular cardiovascular workouts in a way that opens up and strengthens the neuromuscular pathways.
This integrated approach to training both the mind and body lead to exercising in a stress-free way, minimising any overuse injury and aiding recovery, particularly when it forms part of a rehabilitation program or plan.
This is just the tip of the iceberg regarding cross training with Tai Chi, as the benefits can be realised by all sportsmen and woman, not just by professional or serious amateur athletes.
Throughout the world today there are millions of people out there who participate in various sports (e.g. Running, Tennis, Badminton, Football, Soccer, Golf, Cricket, Baseball, Martial arts, Skiing etc), and do so, not to become the ‘best of the best’, but to stay fit and healthy.
