Our Movement Approach & Philosophy
Movement is a hallmark of any living animal. If an animal doesn’t move for a long time, we may think it’s dead. And if an animal doesn’t move properly (a dog that limps, for example), we tend to conclude it is in pain or sick. Humans are animals, and as such we need to move and do so properly.
A good approach to movement is one that encompasses the full range of motion available to humans. We can’t fly like a bird, per se, so there is no sense pursuing that, but we can walk, crawl, jump, hang, swim, and a bunch more.
Depending on our situation, certain movements may cause pain, and sometimes the pain can be helped. Here, chiropractic adjustments, massage, and eating right can make a huge difference and open up a new world of mobility we may have thought lost.
Remember, movement is the means by which we explore the world, meeting other people, finding shelter, and obtaining food to further fuel our movement.
Let’s forget words like exercise and workout. Instead, let’s talk about movement and the fitness goals you have. Our trainers are MovNat® Certified and here to help you reach those goals. Lessons are by appointment only, and typically last for an hour. You can train one-on-one or with a small group. Remember, the investment you make in your health will help shape the way you experience the world.
Breaking through the machine-centric gym paradigm can allow one to gain competence and balance in their motion, and be able to adapt to the ever-changing environment as they explore the world at large. This is where MovNat shines as a fitness education system: by providing progressions that highlight natural and functional human movement patterns, it allows one to advance their movement skills from the ground up.
