ATHLETES IN MOTION
BETTER MOVEMENT TRAINING
Running is a skill and it demands that you bring certain physical attributes and skills to the table. Runner's can develop habits and movement skills that need to be cleaned up. We can trace many injuries back to lacking one or more physical attributes. If all you do is run, you could be heading down the wrong path. Numerous runner's have had injuries that have sidelined them at some point and most are reoccurring. Unfortunately, most don't know where they need to focus their efforts or how to get back on the right path.
LET US HELP!
Increasing Dynamic Neuromuscular Strength is important. It will allow you to control your muscles in motion more effectively so we can avoid instability. Dynamic strength revolves around the ability to make micro corrections to keep joints properly aligned. We need to instinctively know our body position at all times so we can make those adjustments We do this by training our three primary sources; vestibular system, visual, and somatosensory. If these three systems "agree", we get clear signals to control the body in stance
Strength is about Force and Stability (power is nothing without control) Core control is about stabilizing muscles prior to the counter movements involved in running. After we have built the foundation (which takes time) we will now be able to produce much more force.
We want to build a stiffer more powerful spring.
The Range of Motion required in each sport is different. Not enough mobility results in imbalances causing other areas (joints) to compensate. To much motion and instability increases demands on muscles and may result in injury.
Soft Tissue Mobility (can we move correctly and efficiently in the primary planes of motion)
PLANS ARE TO START SESSIONS THIS SUMMER
ATHLETES IN MOTION
Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 7:00-8:00 pm
12 week class,
24 sessions $TBD (2x week)
36 sessions $TBD (3x week)
First class begins with a movement assessment.
Classes include a dynamic-activation warm up before working on the three cornerstones of our better movement training.
