FMS

CREATE A BLUEPRINT FOR TRAINING SUCCESS

A Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is an individual testing system that documents movement patterns that are essential for your body to function properly. It simplifies the concept of movement and the impact it has on our bodies.  By testing these patterns, the FMS identifies any existing limitations and imbalances that could reduce your ability to train effectively or potentially lead to injury.

The FMS generates a score out of 21 and is used by your movement coach to respond to your weakest areas and ensure your training program is designed to support your needs and create a safe and effective training environment.  The scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial exercises available to restore proper movement to your body.

Whether you are an aspiring athlete, weekend warrior or new to exercise an FMS will ensure you are on the right path to training success.  By training smarter not only will it lead to better training results it will help future proof your body so you can continue to train without any interruptions.

FUNCTIONAL PATTERNS

MOVE AS NATURE INTENDED

Functional patterns emphasises training in patterns aligned to the way humans have evolved to walk, run and throw. The better balanced we are with nature’s rules the better we move and perform.

For many of us our lifestyles and prior exercise decisions are moving us further away from those rules.  When we repeat dysfunctional patterns over and over again, our bodies get used to staying within the dysfunction rather than changing.  Poor patterns and dysfunction increase the chance of injury every time you move because they constrict your natural movement.

Employing the principles of functional patterns we can undo habits, repair dysfunction and improve postural alignment and stimulate the body in a more intelligent way to unlock better movement and athletic performance.

We teach you tools and techniques you can do anytime and anywhere.  Training with functional patterns can have a powerful impact on your general wellbeing and performance in your chosen sport.

GROUND TO STANDING

GET FIT FOR LIFE

Ground to Standing training targets a function many people lose over time; the ability to safely and effectively get up and down off the ground in various ways.

As we age we can experience loss of function and adaptability but our activities of daily living demand we be strong in a variety of ways.  Through exercise we can improve how our body uses oxygen, copes with stress and maintains its balanced state to keep us feeling forever young.

By moving our body in a rhythm, such as ground to standing flows, our entire body is sharing the responsibility for generating movement which creates a stronger and more robust architecture.  This keeps us moving better and for longer, improves balance, strength and co-ordination and creates a stronger mind / body connection.

There are many ways, both simple and complex, to get up and down off the ground. It can be challenging not only for our body but also for our mind and is great for overall conditioning.  Ground to standing flows can be done anytime and anywhere to keep you feeling forever young and enjoying the activities you love.

BE ACTIVATED

OBEY THE PRIORITIES OF THE BODY

Be Activated is about obeying the two key priorities of the body: breathing and moving.  When our bodies are not able to do this as intended it will employ compensation strategies in order to adapt and survive.  This gives rise to loss of energy, dysfunction and pain because parts of our body are not doing their job properly.

Using a standard sequence protocol we can identify which parts of your body are not functioning and where the compensation is driven from. By activating those parts that are not doing their job properly we can return muscles and structures to their correct patterns.  The body and brain can then integrate and allow the body to operate more effectively and efficiently. A stress-free body can then go back to working at full capacity, bursting with energy and vitality.

The feedback loop is immediate. An activated body will quickly change from a state of tension, weakness and pain to a strong, relaxed state of excellent performance. Through regular activations, you can make the shift and lock it in – essentially returning the body to factory settings.

The activation techniques are simple to teach and offer a unique and powerful tool for our clients to take control of their health and performance.

PD WARRIOR

USE EXERCISE AS MEDICINE

PD Warrior is an exercise philosophy designed to help you slow your Parkinson’s down.  Bringing together the latest evidence and implementing the ‘Training BIG’ method it proves that exercise is medicine.  What makes it so effective is its proactive approach to exercise, with the right types of specific exercises.

It is a neuro-active exercise program that provides education to empower clients to manage their condition and is designed to challenge and to create new neural pathways within your brain to improve function.  By using amplitude-based behavioural intervention the focus is to maintain the viable dopamine in your brain and therefore slow down the process of deconditioning.

Exercise will not only make you feel better but can help to prolong independent function, cardiovascular fitness and reduce the risk of falls. More importantly recent studies have indicated that intensive exercise programs have also been shown to reduce overall dosage of medication and the associated side effects.
