There is no known way to fix pectus excavatum through exercise alone. In fact, in certain cases, various forms of exercise may be inappropriate for individuals with Pectus Excavatum. Strength training and bodybuilding style exercises can be used to improve posture, increase full-body strength, and improve physical appearance. They cannot, however, correct the chest deformity. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. In severe cases, where medically necessary, pectus can be corrected through surgery. Strength training, stretching, and breathing training can be incredibly beneficial in the preparation and recovery process. We focus on providing meaningful resources to the people who follow in our footsteps.

My name is Kyle Blandford. I'm the Pectus Warriors Head Coach. When I say we've been through it all I really mean it. I was born with Pectus Excavatum and never really knew what it was for the longest time. I experienced my fair share of ridicule through middle and high school for the shape of my chest and eventually underwent the Nuss procedure as an 18 year old. I had two titanium bars in place under my sternum for over 7 years and have since had them removed. Chances are, if you've experienced something pectus related or surgery related, I've been there myself. It can be incredibly challenging to be confident in the way you look with pectus excavatum and that is exactly why I've devoted so much time and effort into working with indviduals just like me.
