FOUNDATION TRAINING has completely changed the way I look at fitness and the body in general. FOUNDATION TRAINING had given me tools to manage my chronic back pain as well as being able to help others.
I still apply FT principals and exercise every single day.
In my earlier years of competitive sports, training and personal training I viewed the body’s health and appearance from the outside. Good bodyweight, muscle tone and nice athletic moves are all great, but now I know…a truly fit and healthy body happens from inside the body.
Humans are the only bodies on the plant that move upright on two legs. This puts our body in a compressed state as soon as we start standing and walking. We battle against gravity all our lives…gravity wins in many many cases. Factor in injuries, repetitive patterns, technology and just plain bad habits such as poor diets, to much sitting and emotional trauma our spines and muscular pulley sysmtoms succumb to all this trauma. I, myself fell into this category of people. Even though, I have always had a good weight, good athletic skills and exercised all my life…the chronic back pain became debilitating…coming more frequently and lasting longer and longer. The “back episodes” affected me at work and at play.
Enter FOUNDATION TRAINING! My wonderful chiropractor at Foxworth Chiropractic showed me the original FT book. I took a look at it and decided to try a few exercises. The exercises looked simple enough (they are simple) but, I knew immediately something was different. I felt better after the first time! I kept doing them…I kept feeling better and better! Weeks went by, months went by and I was feeling great and no back pain. I told Dr Cefalu (my chiro) I keep waiting for this to quit working…for the pain to be back. It’s been four (4) years now…back pain is still gone! Do I still have small flare ups…sure I do but, I know exactly what to do to manage a flare up.
I have been a Certified Foundation Training instructor for 4 years now. FT has evolved in that time and keeps evolving. I knew FT was special when I first tried it…even though I did not know why. I do know why now…FT, takes it’s three (3) principles of decompression, hinging and anchoring and applies it to muscle chains and integrates with movement to build a strong, supple and powerful core (stability system). FT…builds from the inside out.
