Personal Movement System Training 

My expertise and competitive advantage in Calgary lies is the application of my 3 Pillar Praxis philosophy and the quality of my Movement System Evaluation, exercise prescription and programming, and coaching, all aimed at helping you to achieve your desired movement system health and performance.  I can work with you privately (1 on 1) or semi-privately (with up to 4 personal training clients per session) at one of my 4 convenient locations (listed at the bottom of the page).  Through careful initial and ongoing screens, assessments, observation, and quality coaching, I strive to help you understand your current movement system competencies and capacities, help you envision and reach for where you want to be, and keep you progressing towards your ideal health and performance.

Personal/Small Group Training Expectations

The focus of every session with me is to enhance your movement system in some fashion.  That may mean that we need to first focus on cleaning up movement restrictions (through soft tissue and FRC® mobility work) and preparing the body to move efficiently and effectively.  Once that is achieved (to an acceptable level) we progress into intelligently and specifically selected and periodized (the process of progressing the exercise selection, volume and intensity) movements/exercises that challenge each individual appropriately.  I monitor and correct technique to ensure the safety and effectiveness of each movement set and to make sure the challenge is appropriate so that the right change (desired adaptation) or training effect is occurring.  The specific exercises and timing of each session will be different for each individual depending on their ability, goals and other factors, but the general pattern or flow of each session will look something like this: 

  • Removing restrictions with foam roll and soft tissue work (if needed)

  • Movement preparation (physiological readiness) and Functional Range Conditioning (FRC®) mobility work

  • Reactive work (speed, agility, quickness, power) - especially but not limited to athletic populations

  • Resistance Training (loaded movement training, strength training, stability work etc.)

  • Energy System Development (aerobic or anaerobic cardiovascular work, metabolic density training etc.)

  • Recovery/Regeneration (stretching, breathing, shifting to parasympathetic nervous system dominance etc.)
