Finally, A Core Training and Posture Transformation System Designed Specifically For Active People Who Want To Get Reconnected To Their Body and Back To MOVING with Less Pain, More Energy, and More LIFE
And I'm going to lay it out bluntly...
So many people are needlessly suffering from pain, fatigue, and just being "sick and tired of being sick and tired" because they have never even heard of stress induced muscle imbalances and Crossed Posture Syndrome!
(If for some reason, you got to this page without knowledge of CPS...you can see a detailed video describing the syndrome by clicking the button below.)
If there’s one thing you’ll here me repeat over and over again, it’s that exercises come and go, but it’s “how you do what you do when you do it” that matters most when you want to protect and preserve your active body and active life!
That’s why included this ADL Online Video Library as a special bonus in addition to the exercise system.
In this area of the site, I aggregate all of my prior YouTube ADL videos along with specially recorded new ones that show you how to do your activities of daily living in a strain free, efficient manner so you don’t injure yourself!

Here's What Other CWI Course Students Are Saying...
“No Longer Spending $200/Week On A Chiropractor!”
Just had to let you know the power I have back in my life! Thanks for helping me understand the mechanics behind my disc bulges and teaching me the “hip hinge” (that was my big learning moment!) I am now pain free and was able to wean myself off weekly visits to the chiropractor (2 of which said they could no longer help me, and I went for an MRI) and now I’m no longer spending $200/ week! I am 34 and have 3 kids, 5, 6, and 9 and we are ALL happy that I am once again a functioning Mom and sleeping better than ever! Keep doing what you’re doing!Heather, Mother of Three From Ontario, Canada
From Ominous Low Back Pain To Completing Four 5ks Last Year And Training For My First Half Marathon!
“I developed hip and low back pain that was very similar to what I heard my mother describe to her doctor one day and felt an ominous feeling that I was going to be just like her.
I couldn’t let that happen. I did a search on back pain and found the Reverse CPS website. It made sense to me. I had never done anything like this when I signed up for the course and it has saved my life.
The positive approach really made me understand how my posture was affecting my back and hip pain.
I loved the videos of the exercises and the ability to receive feedback when you have a question about how certain exercises may be affecting you.
After completing the course, even though my old Chiropractor told me I couldn’t run 5Ks because my back would hurt too much, I was able to continue training and completed four 5ks last year and am training for my first half marathon with no debilitating back pain.
I have increased my core strength and learned to move in a more productive way. The information in the course is invaluable.
I also love the proactive stance and encouragement that is reaffirmed within every part of the course that you can change your current circumstances and live a healthy and energetic life.
It’s so easy to incorporate into your life and the encouragement from the private coaching helps to keep you motivated and moving in the right direction!!!
This course has given me hope that I will live the last half of my life with energy and exuberance!!!!
Thank you, Dr. Hoffman!Nancy Dougherty, Greenville, TN
“More Focused, Happy, Energetic, and Productive!”
I enrolled in the program because, basically…I needed a swift kick!!!!!!!!
And now, because of the encouragement of your voice in my head and your happy face kicking me along (oops…peacefully inspiring me ) I am more focused and I feel happy, energetic, and productive every day I wake up!
I definitely know when I am off balance. But with the training in the course, I’ve been able to get myself centered and become the person I am meant to be.Carol White, Sellersburg, IN
“Best Investment I’ve Ever Made”
Before I started this course, a power chair was my main means of getting from one place to another.
I did not have the energy to be very productive. I could tell I was gradually getting worse. I even considered moving to assisted living because it was becoming so difficult to function.
Then I saw Dr. Hoffman’s sciatica YouTube video, and immediately got some relief from my pain and I intuitively knew you could help me.
He breaks things down to their smallest parts, and then builds, combining the parts into a whole. Rather than building skills that are advanced with no foundation.
I like the fact that he teaches people where they are, at their own pace, not with a preconceived idea of where they should be.
This and your supportive style that became obvious in the free course, caused me to know this was important for me to do.
I was concerned the course might be too demanding and advanced for me to be able to participate and succeed. But those fears were unfounded because I learned it was ok to move at my own pace and Dr. Hoffman gave me many adaptations and tools to help me be successful at my level.
Now I’m feeling stronger each day rather than weaker. I have been on disability, and am feeling very encouraged that I will be able to go back to work.
I can now get up and down off of the floor (it had been many years since I was able to do this) and I no longer am terrified if I fell I would need to call 911 just to get up even if I were not hurt.
I can now put my own socks on, and partially dress myself without using all of my dressing tools. I have energy now to do more than just the very minimum daily necessities.
A big difference I see is that I am no longer in pain every day and no longer take pain medication several times a day.
My Mother mentioned that I am getting taller. I am able to stand almost straight.
I am learning to walk again. This would not have been possible without the exercises that began to strengthen my core, and give my body more mobility.
The videos explain so clearly how to do the exercises, and are always available for review. The focus on exercise, nutrition, and mind set is integrated and balanced.
It is adaptable to any fitness level, and any pace. The knowledge, energy, and support that is available from the videos is very unique.
If this course charged by the number of minutes I accessed the site, for all the time that was spent answering my questions personally, and if there were a way to charge for everything I have learned, and how much my life has changed, I could never afford to pay that amount.
I actually found myself feeling I was taking advantage, and getting much more than I had paid for.
It was the best investment I have ever made.
I am feeling very encouraged. My body is starting to move in ways I had no idea it would ever again, and pain is so much less than it has been for years.
The concept of moving like your body was originally designed to move, seems so logical and simple. However, this is the first time I have ever been exposed to that concept.
It is also the only thing that has ever worked.
Thank you Dr. Steve for sharing your wisdom in this wonderful course.Carol Wheeler, Champaigne, IL
German Osteopath Gets Relief From Abnormal Heart Rhythm With Simple Posture and Breathing Changes
Before enrolling in this course, my active life was being altered by a strange heart rhythm abnormality that came on during a light endurance run in May 2012 and got to a crisis state by Nov. 2012.
When my heart beat was up to 170 or higher it went up to 220 and it took nearly an hour to go back to a normal state (60-80 beats)
I´ve tried a lot of natural remedies – detoxification of the body etc. (I even had 2 teeth extracted!) but nothing really helped my training come back to normal because the heart rhythm deviation was now coming without reason during the day.
When I found Dr. Hoffman’s YouTube channel I´ve decided to take part in the training course and now my heart rate deviations are going to a normal state.
It hit home to me when you talked about how when your joints are centered and aligned with good breathing and proper rib cage position, your nervous system can relax. This is what I believe helped my heart rhythm.
Now my activity level, mood, and range of motion are increasing daily. I can now do some joint mobility exercises a lot of better.
As an Osteopath, I was attracted to this program because it talks about the origin of our movement.
I´d like to say that this program is the mother of all other sports and daily life activities.
If you cannot manage your core you´ll get your movement from somewhere else and this will compromise the body and lead to pain.
Do this exercise program first and build your sports activity upon it and you´ll get the best results ever.Detlef Pohlmann, Osteopath in Fulda, Germany
“I Went Backpacking For The First Time In 30 Years!”
This training has literally has changed my life. After following some of your suggestions for lower back and movement issues, I went backpacking for the first and second time in 30 years!
We did some amazing and difficult packing in Yellowstone, and then 5 of us went backpacking outside the Grand Canyon. We did a day hike (about 16-18 mi round trip) to the Colorado River starting from Havuspai Falls.
Never would have THOUGHT about all this before working on the lower back, abs, and massive “rolling out” on that roller. (I brought a small roller on the trip – and I packed light!)Rich Reiss, Charlottesville, VA
“The Tightness In My Shoulders Has Improved 99%!”
I loved the “angels” and balance work. The pain and tightness between my shoulders has improved 99%! I can stand taller and stronger – it affects everything.
I am stronger and younger, too. I also now understand that some things in our “emotional brain” can contribute to how we feel and that it can be released and rewired.
This is something I need. Everyone needs.Michelle Johnson, New Albany, IN
“New Body Awareness Has Been Revitalizing! Cravings For Unhealthy Food All But GONE! I Feel Like This Is The Path To True Transformation”
The biggest change I’ve experienced is awareness. I suffer from upper and lower CPS. Understanding the nature of CPS has created an awareness that has changed my thoughts everyday since I found your website.
So many changes have followed.
More lights turned on when I started gaining flexibility in my thoracic spine and hips. Breaking away from my upper trapezius dominant patterns has be very revitalizing.
The same with lengthening my hip flexors and opening up my hips. Now that I’m waking up my feet I am really coming to life! Three pillars… brilliant. I feel I’m on the road to continual improvement.
Along with the foam roller, I use my Body Back Buddy everyday and have been studying The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook. This has really allowed me to break through the lockdown muscle tension. It’s almost like hitting little reset buttons – extremely powerful.
My nutrition habits have completely transformed as well. I eat chia seed pudding every morning and use my Omega 8005 juicer every day. Once I’ve started eating healthy foods the craving for unhealthy foods has all but disappeared.
As far as mindset, I have been aware of many of the principles you teach, but I’ve struggled with putting them into practice. With the nutrition and movement pillars strengthening, the mindset pillar is following suit.
I am slowly going through the program, but I think about the concepts I learn continuously and slowly adding the exercises into my routine. I’ll keep you updated on my progress.
Thanks again for all your lessons. They have given me a path toward true transformation!Chris King, Champagne, IL
“Knowledge, Personal Tailored Advice, and Encouragement. Worth Every Penny!”
I hope that this comment can be viewed by everyone as I want to say that I paid up for the course and would not have it otherwise. It is always lovely to have free stuff, but it is so true that often the value of the content is overlooked if there’s not some price on it.
So lets put this into perspective.
Dr Steve is a qualified and knowledgeable person who just happens to be generous enough to put loads of free (USEFUL) stuff up on the web. How many people do that?
Most people will put up 30% of the info then make you listen to a half hour promo to buy the rest of the info.
Dr Steve has given his TIME, his KNOWLEDGE, his TAILORED, PERSONAL ADVICE, his ENCOURAGEMENT, and the ability to read other peoples comments to ENHANCE YOUR LIFE – not his. FREE. And if you pay a bit, then you get that and a whole lot more time, knowledge, and advice.
Generally, I am a skeptic, especially when purchasing anything off the internet – in fact I rarely do buy anything off the net because of this.
However, I thought this was a very reasonably priced course and took the plunge hoping to receive at least some of what was promised.
I am pleased to say that it has been worth every penny, and Dr Steve’s interaction, guidance and advice is not only great, but you aren’t left waiting long for a response, which I am very impressed with.
As mentioned, it’s nice to have free stuff, but another thing about paying up is that it helped me commit to doing something.
I look forward to some part of the course everyday as it is a joy to feel myself becoming healthier and more positive about life in general.Kristina Jansons-Binns – London, United Kingdom
“Surgeons Now Suggesting I Should Continue Following This Program!”
Dr. Steve,You have described a transformational secret here that if applied will change lives for the better! I know because the very things you are discussing here I have been working with through your blog and program and the bennifits are amazing!
Just a brief background, several months ago I suffered a disc injury to my back and yep, I was frightened. The mind set of I’m broken and all the things I thought I could never do again. Yes it was difficult because my physical activity was greatly curtailed due to pain. I had an injured back and I needed someone to “fix it”. I had consultations that surgery was the answer. But deep down I felt I should try a more concervitive approach first.
Perhaps I should think what I could do to take ownership of my problem. After all, if I were honest with myself, I had to admit that my sedentary lifestyle was truly a major factor in the development of this situation. That’s when I found your blog.
I have been applying what you have spoken about here. My mindset, I no longer have a back injury, I have a ‘healing back’. I just now finished another round of ‘Cross Posturue Syndrome’ (CPS) exercises after having a green smoothie and I’m feeling no pain in my back! I am optimistic that I am on the road to recovery. Each day my symptoms become more and more under My Control!
Surgeons are now suggesting I continue with what I’m doing. Oh, and yes, I’ve lost weight, I can move in ways that I have not moved in years, and life in general is much brighter!
Dr. Steve, what you are sharing here, though it may seem to some, to be to simple to be true, is in fact a very powerful truth. So often it’s the simple little things in life that when added up make the big differences, yet, because they seem too simple, they are so easy to ignore and the benefits are lost.
Thank you for your blog and for you CPS program it is a little thing that I am applying in my life that is making a big difference!Steve Nelson, Retired Air Traffic Controller, St. George, Utah
“I’m Amazed At How Such Fundamental Changes Can Make Such A Big Difference”
It’s an inspirational life program that really does give you more energy throughout the day!
The techniques I learned have improved my posture, toned my muscles, and relieved the tension in my neck, shoulder, and lower back.
Having the emotional calm and relaxed, clear mind have been wonderful. The breathing technique has been especially helpful to alleviate the stress I encounter throughout the day.
I’m amazed at how such fundamental changes can make such a huge difference.Lynn Kamer, Louisville, KY
“Better Mobility Now…And It Was All So Easy To Understand!”
It has been one of best if not the best course I have even taken. My mobility has greatly improved plus I have learned so much and everything is clear and easy to understand.
Me personally, I think the course is laid out in a logical manner. I can not do all the exercises now but I do the ones I can and as I improve I will get stronger and do more. Some people have much more balance and core stability than me so the way the course is set up now anyone at any level can benefit.
Thank you so much!Sue from Florida
“How come nobody ever explained this to me? It made me mad, in a way. It’s so simple”
All through the course, I kept having moments (like when he explained the spiral) where I’d think, How come nobody ever explained that to me?
It made me mad, in a way. It’s so simple. (Well, of course it’s simple once somebody observes it and communicates it to you.)
It’s so back-to-the beginning – different from anything you learn in pilates or any other system. And I’ve got all this energy since doing the core program, it’s awesome.
You and Rebecca are such a great gift. You make everything so do-able!Cynthia from Los Angeles
“NO LONGER FRUSTRATED! It Makes So Much Sense.”
I have tried many modalities of treatment locally with little help and much frustration- physio, massage, GP etc. I’m still blown away by the fact that someone in Indiana, US can help me here in Australia, whereas I haven’t been helped much face to face.
Its always a bit of a gamble to buy things off the internet, and I have spent money on other courses relating to back pain. They were on the right track as far as realizing it was dealing with muscle imbalances, nutrition and stress but were not comprehensive enough.
I’m just not sure why this developmental stuff isn’t known more widely. It makes so much sense.Stella from Australia
Low Back No Longer Seizes Up, Shoulder Pain and Plantar Fascitis Fading Away
”I was looking around on YouTube for help with bursitis and I found some of your videos. I worked off the free stuff for a while and then I took the plunge.
And it’s been some of the best money I have ever spent.
Now, after your training course, my lower back no longer seizes up after a couple of long days fishing (I’m a commercial fisherman), and my shoulder tenderness, which is what led me to this course is fading. Also, plantar fasciitis is fading away.
I think the lower back flexibility is the most impressive, I never thought it would go away, it was just something to deal with as I age.
The way you teach is turning back the clock. I don’t have any of the complaints most people my age do.
I haven’t contacted you for individual coaching because I haven’t really needed it. The videos are great and I can print out directions if I want.
Anyways, that is how I am doing with the course. I will add more exercises as time goes by. My life is really busy, but time will come.
Thanks for doing this, I have never been one to exercise, my work did that for me, but I know I need to. So this is great.”Ann Prendergast, Sointula, British Columbia, CA (population 800)
Makes you feel good in more ways then the original thing you signed on for.
There are other programs out there, and I have tried them too. But this program stands out in a few ways that outshine them all.
First off, I like the continuing sources he puts out in videos, answers, follow ups to what he already has on just about everything in his course. Once your in, – there is no need to buy more things he puts out.
His course is HUGE. Once you get past the basics, there is room to grow.
Second, this is a good man ( and his wife too!) Other courses are based on more technical, or muscle building (with macho bravo going on) or even clearly a money making base to keep having you buy more.
He is as driven as we are to do this better, & get more simple directions from another direction if you don’t get it. He and his family “walk the talk” and live it. Makes you feel good in more ways then the original thing you signed on for.
You’ll not regret getting his course!Cyndy Peterson + Prophetstown, IL
More Questions About The Course? Here's Some Of The Most Frequent Ones I Get Along With My Answers.
Very possibly. Although I can't guarantee pain relief. Hundreds of people have gotten relief from things like back pain, sciatica, neck pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, plantar fascitis, and various other conditions...it happens as a side benefit of doing the work to reverse CPS.
When you fix your damaging posture and movement patterns while you simultaneously reduce nutritional and mental / emotional stress...all kinds of amazing things happen.
Most posture programs focus mainly on stretching releasing tight muscles and strengthening weak muscles.
But with the "Myobalance Method" used in this course, you learn how to "tap in" and re-awaken the ideal posture programs you created from time you were born until 4 years old.
It's what we call the "Deep Core System". Respecting the neuro-developmental process is more natural. That's why it's called "Organic Posture".
Your ideal posture "program" is still in there. You just need to be put in the right positions and given the right imagery cues to re-awaken your natural, effortless upright posture.
Plus...the physical exercise portion is only one of the 3 pillars addressed. It's a comprehensive holistic program that also includes de-programming of damaging thought patterns and anti-aging nutrition strategies.
It's a full Therapeutic Lifestyle Change (TLC) Program.
The original program was an 'in-person" immersive 12-week program where participants spent 3 hours a week with the circuit of exercises and 90 minutes a week with live group education.
You may want to do more than that or much less than that depending on your lifestyle, your schedule, and your level of commitment to change.
If you spent 30 minutes a day dedicated to the transformation, I would conservatively allow a 2 weeks for each module.
BUT...The Good News is this... Since you have LIFETIME ACCESS to the material, you can do the training at your own pace.
The best way to think about this is that it's a body of solid training that's designed for a major paradigm shift.
For some it takes weeks ...for some it takes years...but once you're a student...you're always a student.
ORGANIZATION - All my YouTube and blog content are random thoughts that happen to be on my mind. This course is a structured and proven program based on the latest breakthroughs is movement therapy, nutrition, and brain training.
DEEPER MORE IN-DEPTH TRAINING - By going through this training, you will know more about how to heal your body than most conventional doctors! Like a recent enrollee just told me…”It’s like getting a PhD in how to move your body!
COMMITMENT AND ACCOUNTABILITY - When you invest in yourself…it is an ACTION MOTIVATOR!! You are more likely to succeed when you invest!!
