What is Foundation Training?
Foundation Training is a whole body movement system designed to take you from PAIN to PERFORMANCE. It is a unique system that’s aim is to protect you from the negative impact that our lifestyle or working life has on our bodies and posture.
Many people have found themselves, sitting down whilst working for long hours on computers. Lack of movement effects our wellbeing and strength. It can also be the start of pain.
I regularly treat people in my clinic suffering with lower back pain, chronically tight upper shoulders and neck pain. Neurological problem like sciatica or carpal tunnel syndrome again have become all too common. Judging by the number of personal trainers that I treat with shoulder injuries, it is clear that just trying to get stronger isn’t always going to help to relieve pain.
Foundation Training helps us to learn to connect muscle chains to get the body working and moving as a whole. The exercises literally work from head to toe. Creating unity and balance in our muscle systems gives us strength and reduces pain. We feel and move better
As a soft tissue therapist, Foundation Training has become an essential part of helping my clients have the ability to look after themselves and have less pain.
Foundation Training was developed by a chiropractor Dr Eric Goodman. Rather than undergo surgery to fuse his lumbar spine, Dr Goodman used his knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics to create a series of exercises that decompressed his spine and improved his movement. He didn’t have surgery and continues to pursue his love of surfing.
This system is now being taught to 1000s of people across the world to help them live their lives with less pain.
