Fundamentals are those things on which all others are built, which is why they are always learned first. Athletic ability is no different. As a child, you first learned to control isolated functions of the joints and then transitions between lying, kneeling, and standing positions, which require rhythmic weight shifting with rotation around a neutral and stable spine. This program refines nature’s process for developing athletic ability so that your athletic potential is maximized and maintained into old age.
Coordination. Spacial Awareness. Rhythm.
WHY BODYWEIGHT REHAB?
Fitness is the ability to solve life’s problems. In order for you to better care for the things essential to health and survival, you need to understand how to safely absorb, transfer, and generate force for the sake of locomotion, which means efficiently getting from one place to another. This is the fundamental skill required for all practical problem solving, which is why improving it has the greatest transfer of increased performance into real life and actual sport.
- Train the isolated functions of the knees, hips, spine, and shoulders
- Explore efficient transitions between lying and standing positions
- Understand the relationship between posture, positioning, and performance
- Improve rhythmic weight shifting coordinated with spinal rotation
- Apply creative learning to simple day-to-day problem solving
- Learn to use skill, rather than force, to move through life

REVIEW AND PRACTICE
With minimal effort, this program provides maximum benefit by improving the athletic skill most essential to your survival. Kids, Navy SEALs, rising soccer stars, and grandparents all benefit alike from systematically and regularly practicing the crawl-walk-run progression learned early in childhood. In a single word, the athletic skill most important to your survival is locomotion– the ability to get from one place to another, which starts from a lying position. Once you cannot easily transition between lying and standing positions, your ability to care for yourself and others is significantly reduced, and the results are a guaranteed tragedy! Your mastery of life- depends first and foremost on the ability to rely on coordination, rhythm, and spacial awareness to get you from one place to another. It is within nature’s progression that athletic fundamentals are best trained, and they need to be regularly revisited by all people, regardless of athletic advancement.
