We explore key components of application:

  • Motivation & Values; understanding the “WHY” behind what we do.
  • Movement Principles; the guiding anchors of movement
  • Tissue; seven important tissues and strategies to enhance quality of life. (Fascial Freeing)
  • Motion; efficiency and effectiveness. (Fascial Mobilizers)
  • Force; everyday and sports specificity challenges (Play & Gears & Goals)
  • Program design; Integration into new or existing programs
  • Transformation; applying and observing real time outcomes.

Each day involves advanced theory and hands on training, as well as a truly unique opportunity to get the answers YOU need in an unparalleled world class environment. Based in beautiful Noosa Heads, you will eat, learn, train and play with Ian. At the completion of this event you will have the potential to be a leading coach, creating success for all that you work with.

We look forward to seeing, sharing and evolving with you at this great experience.

 

Workshop Content

The following topics below will be covered in theory and also practical. 
Each day will conclude with a practical session either in the studio or at an outdoor location, enabling all attendees to apply all information from that day.

Motivation and Values
It is necessary to understand the "why" of what we do to create financial sustainability and longevity in this occupation. What drives us Personally, Emotionally and in Business needs to be identified as well as recognising your values. It sounds simple however the majority of coaches in the wellness industry certainly don't have clarity in these areas.

Movement Principles
To achieve sustainable outcomes for clients it is imperative to understand the guiding principles of movement. These principles are the constants of the OD on Movement philosophy that have been collected through research, application and experience. The principles enable coaches to empower clients consistently through experiencing the strategy and feeling the outcomes.

 

Tissue
We look at the seven tissues of the body that play a huge roll in quality of life. The traditional view is based around nerve, muscle and bone. We will expand this view, incorporating a major player like connective tissue but also other components that play major roles in heathy and effective movement. We will then experience how we can instantly change these tissues to permit clients to move and feel better through Fascial Freeing.

 

Force
Intensity, innovation, challenge and interaction all whilst having FUN. We investigate how clients regain enjoyment in their training session helping them to achieve better results in all aspects of their lives. Understanding the body better allows us to implement specific drills or games into sessions, which enhances the client’s enjoyment of exercise whilst improving their fundamental movement. Neuroscience shows that fun and laughter decrease stress in the body; come and experience specific challenges that will test you physically, mentally and emotionally.

 

Motion
Integrated, innovative movements that enhance and change the body instantly. Do you have clients that are hard to achieve results with? Here you will feel, touch and taste the 5 components of fundamental movement necessary to create “change” in the client. Implementing Fascial Mobilisers that allow the major complexes (ankle, hip, thorax) of the body to “communicate” better; resulting in decreased discomfort, pain or compensations. If we look at the performance pyramid, we now understand that function is the foundation to fitness, skill and technique; simply put poor function results in poor results. No matter whether you train chronic, sedentary, active or elite clients understanding the foundation of fundamental movement is a must.

 

Program Design
Understanding how to better meet your clients where they need to be met. How do you start your sessions? Is it from an assessment/questionnaire direction or do you lay them down for a quite time? Maybe you are one of those geeks that play games to change their emotional state! When do you progress or regress their programs/sessions. Every time I train a client I ask myself “where do my clients need to be met today”? Do you? How do you close your sessions? Are they so fatigued and sore that they don’t want to come back? How do I get them to achieve their results? This is a great session.

Transformation 
Transformation is the culmination of the three days, joining the dots and applying the information that has been shared. This is where serious changes occur physically, mentally and emotionally. Coaching goes to a whole new level with a greater understanding of how we can better serve the client whilst empowering them to regain control of their quality of life. To see instant change is truly a life changing experience.
