I AM OFFERING A WAY OF TRAINING THAT HAS THE POWER TO:
1. BRING YOUR POSTURE INTO BALANCE
2. RESET YOUR BODY THROUGH SELF MYOFASCIAL RELEASE
3. STRENGTHEN MOVEMENT PATTERNS
4. TRAIN YOU THROUGH MINDFUL & DYNAMIC FUNCTIONALITY
All exercises have a base foundation. Learn the foundation and take that into more complex movement patterns
1. Bring your Posture into Balance
When our bodies have a strong foundation in correct posture – injuries and bad movement habits are minimised, putting us in good stead for a long life of strength and freedom of movement.
Strong posture is achieved through The 3 Pillars Of Posture:
1. Pelvic tilt alignment (glute activation)
2. Sub-navel contraction (Transverse abdominus activation)
3. Engaging mid traps and scapular in thoracic spine (Balanced shoulder positioning)
Maintaining a neutral neck positioning and Expanding the ribcage through breath with thoracic extension are also important. Training with this method will make good posture second nature and will extend to all areas of your life
2. Open Your body through Self
Myofascial Release and Stretching
Our bodies train and move better when they are supple, elastic and free. Myofascial release is a self-massage technique that Addresses the root of dysfunction by releasing tightness in isolated areas of the body breaking down hardened and scarred muscle tissue.
I teach my clients easy steps in Self Myofascial techniques. All you need is a ball saving you money you’d usually spend on a massage. Self Myofascial release can set you on a path of freedom and body openness that can change your body more than hours in the gym ever could.
3. Strengthen Movement Patterns
Strengthening Movement Patterns is about pinpointing incorrect techniques (disfunction) and setting new habits. (Quality movement) I will take you through movements with core stabilisation and ensure you are using the correct muscles in the prescribed exercise. This prevents over compensation in other muscles, that can create imbalances.
These foundation techniques are applied pre workout, often as a warm-up. These are a static exercise or a very slow movement that enables us to pick up when a deficiency may creep in, so we can correct it immediately. When doing an exercise slowly with concentration you can bring more mindfulness to your posture– a key element to bring to every workout.
4. Train you through mindful and
Now that a strong foundation has been set we transition to more dynamic Functional Training. I am so passionate about this because it is directly applicable to how we move in every day life.
Humans use rotational forces through all planes of motion in almost everything we do, whether it be carrying groceries, lifting your kids, working as a tradie or playing a sport; running, climbing, surfing. Whatever your lifestyle, it’s important the type of training you choose is one that best optimises those movements to enhance your life.
I take a multi-facet approach of functional training through posture to achieve a freer stronger body. With this new level of balance and physical intelligence we will take on dynamic and powerful movement patterns using Dumbbells, Kettlebells, Cables, Bosu, TRX and Cable Rod among other equipment.
As the intensity increases the Functional Movement Patterns become more exciting and Demanding as you move through all planes of motion challenging balance with core stabilisation.
