Foundation Training consists of a series of bodyweight exercises that teach you how to effectively use your body by building it up rather than the constant breakdown our modern lives create.

Poor postural mechanics can contribute to a variety of aches and pains in your body putting undo stress on joints, muscles, nerves etc. The more balanced your structure is, the less pain your body will have and healthier you will be as you continue to age.

Foundation training is more than exercise, it is way of life by teaching your body to move and be strong in proper hinging mechanics with proper muscle activation throughout the day saving wear and tear on joints, muscle and tissue. It is about decompressing and stabilizing your spine through muscular strength utilizing your whole body in gravity, which opens up all systems of the body to function more efficiently.

Changing postural patterns can take time. This program if done in small doses throughout the day can help repattern postural mechanics in 90 days. This means over time your body will start naturally preferring the new patterns over the old resulting in better overall health and body function.

Foundation Training sessions are offered as 30 or 60 Minute Private Sessions and as a 60 Minute Group Class. Group classes are limited to 10 participants, allowing individualized supervision for corrective movement assessment and education. Group Classes purchased on a punch card must be used within 2 months or they will expire. For more information on foundation training, visit
