Master Movement As Nature Intended.
Primal Motion is an integrated movement therapy practice that embraces elements of physical conditioning, corrective exercise, yoga, and manual therapy. Primal Motion restores postural & muscular balance, builds athletic physiques, and conditions bodies to master movement as nature intended.
Primal Motion is based on the concept that every movement is made up of 7 Primal Movement Patterns: Squatting, Lunging, Bending, Pushing, Pulling, Twisting, & Walking. For example, a baseball pitch is a combination of a Lunge, Twist, & Push. Primal Motion is designed to integrate & master these movement patterns.
Primal Motion – Movement Efficiency & Posture Assessment
The Primal Motion movement efficiency & posture assessment analyzes standing posture, movement patterns, & joint function. It will identify areas that may be causing pain, leading to injury, or hindering daily performance.
Isolation. Integration. Performance.
After identifying muscular, postural, and movement imbalances in the body; corrective exercise, muscle activation, and isolation techniques is used to restore function and strength to these isolated areas. Manual therapy and joint mobility training is used to release isolated areas of chronic restriction.
Since the body never operates in isolation, it is important to integrate these new isolated strengths into functional movement patterns. This is done with compound resistance training, yoga, and other methods of physical conditioning such as kettlebell training.
As functional movement patterns are mastered, training is directed towards physique & performance goals. This is done with advanced program design, lifestyle coaching, and continuing to integrate primal movement patterns together in challenging and creative ways.
Feeling & Looking Great
Primal Motion isn’t only about moving and performing well. Feeling great and looking good is also important! A healthy lifestyle and a positive relationship with your body image are important elements of living a successful life. Holistic lifestyle coaching and nutritional counselling is used to create the daily habits that are necessary to achieving lifestyle and physique goals.
