You wouldn’t begin construction on a new home without first building a solid foundation would you?
The answer is obviously no… Yet haven’t you noticed lately how many options are now available.
Just hop on social media and in an instant we are bombarded with endless amounts of information.
Can you relate?
“We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom”
– Edward O. Wilson
With so many options available, feeling indecisive is normal. But just like building your own house is not suited for everyone, neither is our curriculum.
OUR CURRICULUM WAS BUILT WITH ONE PURPOSE…
To share all the corrective exercise wisdom and guidance we have to movement professionals who wish to learn the why’s behind pain, & HOW TO FEEL 100% CONFIDENT IN THE ASSESSMENT, EXERCISE SELECTION AND PROGRAM DESIGN PROCESS.
P.S. – No need to panic… We don’t expect to fill all the available spots immediately. That said, if you want to guarantee one of those Level 1 spots, than please don’t delay. We’re expecting them to sell out. Here’s the link:
Pain is complex. There’s no argument there… If you’re a movement professional working with the chronic pain population, perhaps one of the most relevant questions to ask yourself is “what has to happen in order to create an environment geared towards creating pain-free transformations that are specific to the individuals’ current biological, psychological and sociological states?”
Perhaps a more succinct question could be – how does one understand pain? Is there a master blueprint that can act as our guide?
Historically, highly specific areas of the brain (the primary and secondary sensory cortex, the amygdala, thalamus, among others) make up what’s been referred to as the “pain matrix.” It’s been THE map to understanding pain.
Yet recently, the pain matrix is slowing giving way to a more novel concept – the “salience matrix.”
You can make more friends in two months by becoming genuinely interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.
How can a book first published back in 1936 still remain atop of the bestseller list?
The book surely appeals to universal truths that endure through time. It must discuss concepts and principles that have ubiquitous relevance and can be easily understood and implemented.
Dale Carnegie’s “How To Win Friends And Influence People” has stood the test of time, & there isn’t much ambiguity in understanding why. One of the standout principles in the best seller is simple, and yet rarely practiced:
Tony Robbins, ‘the leader called upon by leaders’ states “The number one attribute all great leaders posses, besides consistently managing their state, is their ability to create rapport.”
Building rapport leads to trust, and trust is an essential ingredient necessary to successfully meeting clients where they need to be met. People often speak in code, and rarely in a succinct fashion that is straightforward and easy to understand. This can be a complex barrier to building rapport with clients.
In a previous article (Three Misconceptions Behind Corrective Exercise), the enormous impact words carry with them was discussed. Words carry a potency that can, in a moments notice, create rapport. And just as quickly build walls of tension and distrust.
What happens when the corrective exercise or fitness professional is not cognitively selective with his or her choice of words?
