We are honored to deliver Foundation Training- a system that provides tools that can help alleviate many kinds of pain, improve performance, and prevent injuries: back, knee, foot, shoulder, neck just to name a few. It can help prevent surgeries or if you’ve had surgery already, it can dramatically improve recovery. And for so many, it can decrease the need for pain medication.
Why So Many Injuries?
The Modern Human has thousands of compression-based injuries resulting from compromised joints, improper load carriage and resultant poor posture, over-training, and an overemphasis on movements in the sagittal plane. Humans also create their own problems due to "complacent adaptation" to their environment: sitting for extended times, excessive computer use, bad posture while using smartphones, etc. Foundation Training will teach your body to return to homeostasis. You will learn how to anchor and decompress the body through breath, strengthen the core and posterior chain, and improve your posture.
What Is Foundation Training and How Can It Help You?
Foundation Training is a safe and effective exercise program created by Dr. Eric Goodman to help you change the movement patterns that are hurting you. These simple and transformative exercises are designed to naturally heal back pain. Relief begins immediately, no equipment needed.
Not in pain? Foundation Training is also the universal accessory for a Modern Human. By integrating its short duration workouts into your routine, you will get more out of every movement you make. FT has helped professional athletes in virtually every sport reach new levels of endurance, stamina, and strength.
Foundation Training uses a combination of powerful movements, intentional poses, and conscious breathing work to activate the muscles in your posterior chain. When practiced regularly, your pain will diminish, your resistance to injury increases, and your athleticism is enhanced because:
1. Your torso, pelvis, and posterior chain strengthen
2. Your hips reclaim their intended role as the epicenter of movement
3. Your spine decompresses and space opens throughout your torso
4. Your breathing capacity and oxygen levels increase
5. Your muscles learn to correctly support your structure and posture improves
6. Your muscles learn to correctly support your structure and posture improves
