About the Doctor:
Jordan Hart is Chiropractor at Athletic Edge Chiropractic. My company is a sports based practice with strong focus on movement quality and enhancement. We put each of our patients through a Functional Movement Screen which gives us a solid idea of how the body works as a whole rather than just concentrating on the single area of the patients pain or presenting dysfunction. The body is one big kinetic chain with all of its parts working together, therefore we treat the body as a whole rather than in individual pieces. Our treatment is a combination of Active Release Technique to improve the body’s mobility, corrective exercise to improve improper bio mechanics and movement training to help people improve their movement and learn to connect with their bodies so that they may unleash their inner athlete and genetic potential.

Why do you make time to live fit?
I make time to live fit because movement is at the center of life! Countless studies show the wide spread benefits of adding even light exercise into your routine. Movement is life! Athletics and exercise make me feel alive, and who doesn’t want to feel alive every day?
Give your top 2 reasons how living fit helps you be a successful leader
Living fit helps me to be successful because: 1. It helps me to relate to my patients and athletes therefore allowing me to form a stronger connection with them as a care provider. As an athlete, I have experienced challenges, injuries, setbacks and triumphs. Athletes make up 90% of my practice, if I could not relate to their journeys and goals, I could not fully treat them. 2.It helps me to maintain my body and stay healthy! As a chiropractor, my job is physically demanding. For 8 hours a day I perform manual muscle work, demonstrate exercises and perform chiropractic adjustments. If I do not take care of my body, I would be out of the job in just a few years!
Describe your weekly workout routine
My weekly workout routine ranges from light to heavy. Each weekday morning I wake up and perform a pre-made morning routine I have created for myself that includes foam rolling, core and postural exercises. This helps me to start my day off feeling energized and ready to take on a physically demanding day! Two evenings a week I alternate between cycling and running. Depending upon the intensity of my day at the office and the weather, I will run anywhere from 2-7 miles or cycle for an hour. Two nights a week I like to perform body weight exercises and some light lifting routines in my home gym. Finally, my weekends include Friday night soccer games with my co-ed team and Sunday games with my women’s team.
Describe your weekly nutrition plan
My weekly nutrition plan consists largely of home made meals. I was diagnosed at age 24 with Hashimoto’s Disease, an Autoimmune condition. Soon after, I learned I was gluten sensitive and have been gluten free for nearly 2 years now. I spend most of my Sunday’s and Wednesday evenings preparing meals. I get most of my meal ideas from Pinterest and CleanEating.com. I pack a cooler with me each morning to ensure I have plenty of good things to snack on throughout the day.
Give one piece of advice to others looking to get fit and healthy as a busy professional
Preparation and time management are two keys to staying healthy as a business professional. Schedule your workouts like you would a meeting with a client and you are much more likely to actually get it done. Spend 1 to 2 nights a week preparing meals that you can keep in the fridge or freezer for easy options when packing your lunch or snacks for the work day ahead.
What’s one interesting item you always keep in your gym bag?
A lacrosse ball! I use it to help work out knots between my shoulder blades or other areas that may be tight or have hidden trigger points.
What do you use to get motivated before a tough workout?
Definitely some great music! I love to dance and you can catch me dancing around the office quite a bit. With the right tunes, my workout can double or triple in length!
Give us one fitness accomplishment you want to achieve in the next 10 years
I definitely want to complete an Ironman. As an athlete and a competitive individual, the Ironman is the ultimate test of mental and physical toughness.
