Hi! My name is Lj
I am a self-taught hand-balancer from a small town in Ontario, Canada.
I had an active childhood running around in the outdoors, but maybe to your surprise, never took dance or gymnastics. I really just loved to PLAY, and as a kid that worked well for me. But as I started to get older, I began playing LESS, got distracted with being an "ADULT", and started gaining weight.
Instead of crushing workouts, I was crushing Netflix, and feeling a lack of direction in my life...
I spent almost 2 years feeling LOST...
....when suddenly something sparked my interest!
It was a small goal, one that made me feel EXCITED enough that I thought "perhaps I could follow through on making it happen".
I decided I wanted to learn how to do a HEADSTAND!
I actually remember thinking "I'm too old to learn...", and let myself feel very discouraged before I had even tried.
Let me be the first to say, that is complete BS...!!
And If I could say anything to my former self it is that you do not know what you are capable of until you have put in an honest EFFORT.
I started with the goal of 5 minutes a day...
...dedicated to learning the proper form I would need to achieve a headstand.
Those 5 minutes a day flourished into a PASSION for learning the BEST techniques to enhance my practice.
I created my Instagram, @TheInversionAddict, and since then have helped HUNDREDS of people achieve physical goals they once thought were impossible, and I want to do the same for YOU!
I believe that this is a very rewarding skill that takes hard work and dedication, but with accountability and proper training, everyone has the opportunity to achieve their inversion goals.
