Movement Essentials Workshop & Coaches Gathering
We believe that movement is infinitely refinable and the pursuit of virtuosity in movement for EVERY human being is essential to improving athleticism and, more importantly, quality of life. As coaches it is our responsibility to constantly be learning and growing so that we can help ourselves and the athletes we coach move well to the utmost of our ability.
The Movement Essentials Workshop & Coaches Gathering is a 1-2 day experience that focuses on movement and coaching of movement. On Day 1 we will begin with fundamental movement principles that will transfer to all movements whether you train using the CrossFit methodology, olympic style weightlifting, powerlifting, strongman, yoga, pilates, Zumba, etc. We will then finish Day 1 applying these principles to a high skilled movement such as the snatch, clean, muscle up, pull up, or handstand push up. On Day 2 we will review the happenings of Day 1 but from a Coach’s perspective. Coaches will take what they learned in Day 1 and learn how to apply it into their training of others. We will cover progressions, scaling, adaptations, and perhaps go down a few rabbit trails to enhance comprehension and confidence in applying the principles.
Day 1 is for EVERYONE: coach, athlete, weekend warrior, coach potato. EVERY aspect of Day 1 will be accessible, adaptable, and relevant to any person who wants to learn. Day 2 is for coaches seeking further conversation and understanding of the principles covered in Day 1.
