In order to fully benefit from our program we require completion of our Initial Assessment. Completing our Initial Assessment is also a prerequisite to accessing our Group Training classes. During your initial visit, we will closely assess your gait cycle by filming your movement in slow motion. Followed by a postural analysis where we analyze how your joints are stacked in a relaxed standing position and how efficient your breathing patterns are. We will begin addressing structural imbalances and conclude the session with an action plan for moving forward.
Why is this assessment so important?
Our gait cycle is the specific sequences the body goes through when walking and running. Observing an individual’s specific movement patterns allows us to see deeper into a body’s functional capacity. For example, if your body does not lightly absorb the shock from the ground when running, we are able to pinpoint a compression somewhere up the kinetic chain. Common areas of compression are the ankle, knee, hip, lower back, or spine. Applying FP methods will reduce the stress on compressed areas eliminating inflammation and alleviating chronic aches and pains. The more we understand how your gait cycle is connected to your structural integrity, the more we can help you solve your problems and reach your pain-free fitness goals.
After completing the 1 1/2 hour assessment and formulating a plan with your practitioner, the next step is to begin Phase One through one on one training. The objective of Phase One is to obtain structural integrity (a solid foundation) and achieve pain-free movement by focusing on FP training methods.
Once the foundation of Phase One is complete, your structure will be ready to progress into more complex dynamic explosive movements, without experiencing pain or injuries. We will start focusing more on advanced training and address your imbalances through realignment techniques, chambers, multi-plane ballistics, and pendulum movements.
We also offer Partner Training if you would you prefer to train with a friend or family member. Partner sessions, are a more cost effective option and a great way to learn/practice with a partner. Another benefit to partner training is the opportunity to watch your partners transformation. Training your eye to see the imbalances on another structures will be helpful when correcting your own imbalances. Although you will be sharing your time our trained practitioners will pin point specific points of priority for you to be aware of.
