Our main focus is based around 3 principles:
We aim to help everyday people to move better, feel better and perform better.
Move: Regaining your child-like movement and having confidence to control with your body, all while learning new skills, strengths and flexibility.
Feel: Having movement freedom that’s pain free, and not having a checklist of pain and injuries that haunt you in your daily life.
Perform: Being able to play with your kids at the park, or increasing your capacity in a hobby or sport that you might play or compete in.
Some people might boil down what we do to general Strength & Conditioning — though we like to use the word “movement” as an umbrella term because it gives us the opportunity to use many disciplines as an open source within the realm of physical training.
To give some examples:
We use gymnastics and bodyweight work for upper body strength because it builds both strength and stability that is progressive and highly transferable to other areas of training.
We use tools such as the barbell for lower body strength because it allows us to gain strength and power, while also utilising bodyweight lower body strength to increase endurance, mobility and complexity.
We use stretching methods based around Gymnastics, martial arts and Yoga to help us achieve a mixture of both active/loaded mobility and passive/relaxed flexibility, which helps to create functional ranges of motion in our bodies.
We incorporate rehab/prehab and joint preparation tools to help create a strong and resilient body, as well as screening our members for potential injuries and movement dysfunctions.
We learn new skills, play games, locomote and use other organic movements because it’s fun, it’s where we originate from and we should never fall into the trap of growing up!
We also like change: the things that we are doing today will change in a months time. Rather than trying to reinvent the wheel, we’re always trying different ways to move the wheel.
While some people might feel that this sort of training is advanced in comparison to a general gym program, it may be in technical complexity but it’s really not regarding its execution. The process and preparation is what matters — and we like to scale our curriculum to fit all levels and abilities.
We’re excited to help people from all walks of life, to build a bigger movement toolbox, skill capacity and reduce or remove their previous injuries — and most of all having fun whilst doing it!
