Who is Dr. Cheng?

The Beachbody Tai Cheng program was conceived and designed by Dr. Mark Cheng, who has practiced Tai Chi his whole life and taught it to thousands over the past twenty years. These decades of experience with this gentle yet powerful martial art have taught Dr. Cheng not only how best to teach it, but how to help even the most novice of students rapidly learn the complexities of Tai Chi. His breakthrough was a method called Dynamic Motion Control—a straight forward approach to the often mysterious and complex art of Tai Chi, synthesizing the best of the art while delivering its health benefits to one and all.

Dr. Cheng took his profound understanding of Tai Chi and blended it with ancient Qi Gong practices, and then brought both styles up to date with the latest understandings of 21st-century sports science. The result was a powerful blend of all three that delivers balance, flexibility, a greater range of motion, increased vitality and energy, strengthened joints, easier breathing, and mental clarity.

How Does Tai Cheng Work?

Tai Cheng is designed to help you create a solid foundation of core strength, joint health, and improved balance and flexibility. These aspects of health are often neglected by more extreme approaches, and while an extreme workout may help you lose pounds or gain lean skeletal muscle, your joints, balance, flexibility, and core strength are the aspects of your health that will most impact your life as you get older. Ensuring that you have this solid foundation today will allow you to lead an active and healthy life long past when the other extreme athletes have been laid up with injuries and pain.

Tai Cheng blends precision control with breathing and meditation. By focusing on your whole body as it moves through time and space, you will discover greater range of motion, tranquility, strength, and deliberation as isometric poses and balancing movements help you unleash your body’s hidden potential.
