Foundation Training is a movement practice that teaches your body how to properly support itself and move as nature intended. This program is a systematic solution that enables one to reach, achieve, and experience incredible long-term health and wellness.
Who started it?
FT was developed by chiropractor and movement expert, Dr. Eric Goodman, to heal his chronic back pain and avoid surgery for multiple disc herniations.
How does it work?
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 diminishes, your resistance to injury increases, and your body comes to life.
When these things happen, a cascade of healthful changes happen in your body and your life.
Foundation Training targets the source of pain- not just the symptoms- making it a long term solution for health. It brings the whole body, inside and out, into balance allowing you to function at your absolute best.
Why Foundation Training?
Life in the 21st century all too often means living an extremely sedentary and immobile lifestyle- one that encourages too
much time spent hunched over screens, devices, steering wheels,and desks. Assuming these poor positions throughout the day without adequate muscular strength to resist and push back against gravity can lead to degeneration of our joints, inefficiency of our muscles, and unnecessary pain. Our habits of sitting and curling forward, combined with the ever constant pull of gravity, cause a compression force on our bodies that is detrimental to every aspect of health. We modern humans must learn to live and move the way our bodies are designed or else we leave ourselves vulnerable to pain, illness, fatigue, and overwhelming general malaise.
Providing an Athletic Platform
For many of the world's top athletes and Olympic super stars, Foundation Training is a crucial part of their fitness. Collegiate and high school teams, coaches, trainers, and athletes of all types and abilities use Foundation Training to build structural strength, heal injuries, improve their game, and increase injury resistance.
