Functional training started to gain popularity in the 90’s. It was such a new idea that it never has been truly understood by the fitness mainstream. While it is difficult to argue that improving how we function isn’t essential to how we should train, the sad fact is that many either couldn’t understand how functional training improves other goals such as fat loss and muscle gain, or didn’t understand truly what functional training meant (it isn’t about replicating what we do in life). So, even a lot of what we see today as labeled as “functional” really is not.
That is why physical therapist, Jessica Bento, has been putting together a series of fitness educational courses to help people better understand what functional training really means and how it enhances every fitness goal. Her most ambitious challenge is this program in her gait program. While many fitness professionals can appreciate squatting, pushing, lunging, pulling, and hip hinging, most don’t know all that much about the movement pattern that is MOST complex and makes us MOST uniquely human…locomotion.
By itself, learning about gait is just a bunch of fun movement facts, used in the right context you will understand how it is the solution to so many challenging goals.
Wonder why you see people struggle performing a squat correctly with poor ankle mobility and knees caving in? We should probably look at gait.
Discover why loaded carries could be causing MORE dysfunction to occur with your client!
Not sure how your client has some random shoulder pain that is hard to trace to anything specific? You might be surprised how gait could shed some light.
Frustrated that no matter how much plank and mobility work you do, your clients still seem limited in how well they move and their ability to progress? Gait could provide us important information on concepts of movement we are missing that could help solve many of these issues.
Best of all, Jessica has made a program that provides practical examples to go with the science so you can see how to take real people through the steps of making the information in this program come to life. Spending time getting good at using the concepts and principles in this program will not only help you gain better insight and coaching ability in helping people, but you will truly start to understand what makes functional training so impactful!
