"I focus on developing our ability to move and perform with control, strength and rhythm. I works towards movement fluidity, whether running, riding bikes, body work practice"
My training is diverse as I integrate and fuse many training forms into one. It is process of exploring the possibility and capability of what your body can achieve that I find interesting.
There is something charming about training contrasts, the contrasts between environments, speeds and challenges which makes them exciting.
I highlight the importance of conditioning your movement first, as this creates the platform for moving well. Building space into the joint structures and elasticity into the soft tissue enables the body to move efficiently through 3D space. Whether you are a athlete or want that joyful athletic feeling to play with your kids. As moving well in 3D space is essential for optimal physical performance.
I work with 3DFT (dimensional functional training), which in short is conditioning the body to move in multiple planes of motion, which is promoting human function. I use tools such as medicine balls and PROCEDOS P9 to load the movement action.
As we understand that to develop true authentic functional strength, which gives the most impact when we discuss training and the cross over to sports and life. I promote training both indoors and outdoors and aim to integrate the same strategies as much as possible in all environments. I pay attention to conditioning the bio systems such as balance, respiratory, reflex, and reaction systems, In turn keeps the body alert and sharp both athletically and mentally. Which is ultimately what we all want!
