With Beachbody’s Tai Cheng everything is about to feel better!
What is Tai Cheng?
Tai Cheng™ is Beachbody’s newest and perhaps most comprehensive fitness program. Based on the movements, concepts, and theories of traditional Yang-style Tai Chi, the Beachbody® Tai Cheng workout program was created by Tai Chi master, Dr. Mark Cheng. The Mandarin Chinese translation of Tai Cheng (as we’ve conceived of it here at Beachbody) is the “Supreme Accomplishment” in whole body health.
Who is Dr. Mark Cheng?
DR. MARK CHENG is a martial arts master trainer with 3 decades of experience in Tai Chi. His background as a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner (licensed acupuncturist; PhD in Chinese medicine and acupuncture) and a physical therapy-based corrective exercise expert has allowed him to bring the ancient martial arts and wellness practices of Tai Chi to a modern, 21st-century audience.
What can Tai Cheng do for me?
The Tai Cheng™workout is based on classical Tai Chi techniques, ancient Qi Gong practices, and modern corrective exercise patterns designed to both rehab and “prehab” the body, as well as improve the body’s metabolism, joint function, stress management, and athletic performance!The Tai Cheng program is a workout that feels good, challenges your body, gives you energy, and can help improve circulation, straighten posture, open your joints, reduce painful trigger points, and promote balance and flexibility to help improve your health as you age.
Who is Tai Cheng for?
Tai Chi and the other ancient modalities within the Tai Cheng™ program are made for EVERYONE. This 13-week regimen delivers tremendous benefits, whether you’re doing the first-level moves and using the support of a wall, or you’re an elite athlete who is looking to improve your athletic performance in safer, more holistic ways.
What can I expect in a Tai Cheng workout?
Every day, Tai Cheng™ takes you through a gentle energizing warm-up and teaches you a new Tai Chi move. These workouts are designed to improve balance, awaken dormant energy sources, tone and strengthen your muscles, soothe stiffness, and increase your range of motion.
How long is the Tai Cheng program?
Tai Cheng™ is a 90-day program, divided into four phases. You will learn 6 Tai Chi movements in each of the first three phases; each of these phases is 3 weeks long. In the fourth phase, which is 4 weeks long, you learn how to put multiple movements together in sequence.
