What is Movement Training?
That’s just how our body is made to function.
We typically start developing these patterns when we are children as we move around, interact with our environment and play.
Our joints are mobile, we move in a variety of directions, get into everything and slowly develop things like balance, body awareness, coordination and control.
Kids that play outside are strong, durable and can play for hours without fatigue.
Once we start school, we are told to sit, be quiet and this is where the wheels fall off.
Twenty years of sitting in school, combined with technology is making people move less and less.
Joints get stiff, muscles and tendons weaken, coordination and body awareness diminish.
Remember the old saying “Use it or lose it”
Well, lots of young athletes and adults lost it.
They sit 18 hours a day in the car, the couch or at the computer. We stare at our cell phones constantly, watch tv, scan social media, watch videos, look at pictures, etc.
This is taking its toll on our bodies…
