Correct My Posture (powered by Plumb Line University) is Step 1 at Plumb Line University. Everyone begins here. It's the foundation of everything we do.
CMP is the first neuroplasticity-based, no-exercise approach to good posture. I bet you're thinking, "Come on! A no-exercise program for better posture?"
If you think that's hard to believe, it gets even better. Our approach to learning is 100% non-verbal. Let me repeat that, "CMP (and all Plumb Line University's programs) is a no-exercise, non-verbal, neuroplasticity-based program. Do we have your attention now? That's what we thought.
How & Why, we’ve chosen to do it this way?
1. Got pain anyone? Approximately 75% of Americans hate to exercise, so they don’t, while MSD’s (muscular skeletal disorders, chronic aches & pain in the back, hip, shoulder, neck knees etc..) are on the rise with no sign of slowing down. Even our junior and college athletes have more MSD’s and injuries than ever before. The cause? A subconscious lifestyle of poor torso (postural) alignment which inevitably will result in poor movement patterns.
2. The non-exercise approach was discovered by Edward Taub, One of the most noted, Neuroplasticians of our time. Because Taub is really smart, we adopted his three key training principles, as a no-brainer common sense approach to posture. Speaking of no-brainer, on the other end of the educational spectrum, our founder Alison Thietje, Alley-Tee for short; a life-long certified personal trainer, created the non-verbal approach, (also backed by modern brain science) called TED Training. It is beyond simple and requires no education to master it. And it works!
What is Neuroplasticity? Intimidating word, right? We confess…we use it because it makes us sound really smart. LOL. All kidding aside. We use it because it’s true. All of our programs are designed with one goal: Neuroplasticity. That is, changing the brain and thereby changing both conscious and subconscious postural and body movement habits. And to be honest, we just like the way it sounds.
No Exercise? No intellectual jargon? Sign me up! But wait-when & where would I use CMP? One of Taub’s three-key training principles is that we apply the desired body change frequently throughout the day for short-spurts-of-time. (I know-right? The short-spurts-of-time is what sold us too.) Taub’s second training principle is that it needs to be applied within our normal daily routine. That makes CMP a time saver because we do it- while doing -what we’re already doing. You know what that means? CMP is saving us money! And as Americans, we know that time is money. Taub’s third training principle is that the learning must be incremental. Yep, we got that down too.
(And for the Type A personality’s that only wants the bottom line)
CMP saves us time, money, it’s non-verbal (& non-intellectual), we don’t have to exercise to get results, and the teaching method is based on a continuum of learning that is by nature incremental.
I bet you're thinking to yourself that this is beginning to sound like a cheesy marketing & advertising campaign.

Does anyone believe that stuff?
Rest assured, at Plumb Line University, we don’t think you’re stupid; we don’t use brainless sales and marketing strategies. As you can see, we are straight shooters. We’ve chosen satire and comedy to hook you and keep you coming back. How do we know it works? We don’t. But if you’re still reading this, we just might be on to something.
What about fitness, athletics & sports enthusiast? Oh……. those guys/gals? The minority group that loves to exercise, chase little white balls for 4 hours, ride bikes for 40 miles, jog at 6:00 am on a Saturday morning and go to the gym every-day and consider it fun? (yes, we’re profiling) Of all people, going through our Body Movement Mastery Course 101-103 should be their #1 priority. If they don’t add our self-administer alignment principles to their activities, ALL the research points to their risk of injury being higher, chronic pain being- well-chronic, and as they age crappy performance in their chosen sport is sure to go up-up-up. That is no fun at all. So, if you know someone that fits that profile, do them a favor and forward them a link to this page.
Mentioning age-related drawbacks, as we get older there are-how do we say this-some personal drawbacks of poor torso alignment (posture) and poor movement patterns. And not just in the obvious ways. It affects your loved ones in ways they’re not likely to tell you about- so we will. Particularly for males, age 55 + in a very personal way, your agility, strength, movement patterns, and endurance are of utmost importance. (Hope you get what we’re trying to say……without us actually saying it.)
And don’t fall into the trap of thinking you already know this stuff. In fact, we currently have zero competition. Our programs are proprietary, innovative, simple and most importantly, they are 100% practical. No need for textbooks or memorizing big words, (except for the word neuroplasticity which sounds really cool). All of our courses are marked by a distinct, “Don’t tell us what you know, show us what you can do” approach to education. It’s far superior. At least we think it is.
