About the Fascial Fitness course

The Fascial Fitness course has exercises and practical suggestions within it, but Fascial Fitness is not a hands-on course like our Fascial Release for Structural Balance or Anatomy Trains short courses. It covers what the latest fascial research tells us about how to train people. Thus it applies to personal trainers, Pilates Teachers, athletic coaches, and remedial exercise folks more than bodyworkers per se. Bodyworkers will certainly learn a lot about fascia – about stretch, injury, recovery, etc – but not much in the way of manual therapy techniques – for those, come to an Anatomy Trains Manual weekend. The focus is on fascial plasticity, hydration, histological responses, and techniques within the training that will enhance fascial strength, resilience, and coordination.

Fascial Fitness DVD

The Fascial Fitness DVD overviews both theory and practice in the new field of training our ‘biological fabric’. Any movement ‘trains’ fascia, but this DVD gives us the opportunity to be informed and specific in training the fascia as well as the muscles, nerves, and core. Long the ‘Cinderella’ of our body tissues and relegated to the role of ‘packing material’, research is now revealing the important regulatory functions of the fascia in overall biomechanics. Created in close cooperation with international scientists by experienced movement educators and bodyworkers, this DVD outlines 10 strategies leading to Fascial Fitness, translated into a unique form of movement instruction.
