Everyone wants to live a pain free life, but sometimes this is easier said than done. Muscle soreness, bad posture, and other bodily pains often leave individuals feeling a bit out of balance. Foundation Training is an innovative approach to exercise that aims to restore natural balance by helping to reverse the damage caused by everyday stresses to the body.
What is Foundation Training?
Foundation Training is a series of exercises that help teach your body to move as it is naturally meant to. The training program focuses on the core, or any area that connects to the pelvis, such as the hamstrings, glutes, and inner thigh muscles. By increasing your core strength, you are able to improve flexibility, balance, and overall strength, which leads to less pain and better overall athletic performance.
Practicing 10-30 minutes of Foundation Training each day will allow individuals to enjoy strong and coordinated movement throughout their lives. Foundation Training is offered in group classes or private sessions with a certified instructor. These classes help individuals broaden their skill and understanding of the program, while also making sure they are utilizing proper form.
From Pain to Performance
Foundation Training was developed in order to help people of all different activity levels improve movement and restore balance in the body. These exercises can help individuals:
- Relieve pain caused by daily pressures on the body, such as poor posture or high stress levels
- Improve posture and poise
- Increase freedom of movement
- Maximize athletic performance
- Strengthen glutes, inner thigh muscles, lower back muscles, abdomen and hip flexors
- Promote better balance and overall health
Like any exercise routine, you should consult with an experienced professional before you begin. Consulting with a chiropractor or other health care provider can help you determine if Foundation Training is right for you.
