Dr. Mark Cheng worked with Beachbody® to create Tai Cheng™.
A martial arts master trainer with more than three decades of experience in Tai Chi—Dr. Cheng used 21st-century sports science to develop Tai Cheng™, which can help your vitality improve with age.
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 that both rehab and prehab the body, improving the body’s metabolism, joint function, stress management, and athletic performance!
The Tai Cheng™ program shows you how to customize a workout that feels good, challenges your body, gives you energy, improves circulation, straightens posture, opens your joints, reduces painful trigger points, and promotes balance and flexibility so that your health actually improves 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 six Tai Chi movements in each of the first three phases; each of these phases is three weeks long. In the fourth phase, which is four weeks long, you learn how to put multiple movements together in sequence.
What kind of equipment will I need?
All you need to do Tai Cheng™ is a 6’ x 6’ space, about an hour a day, and a foam roller, which is included with the program.
