Functional Program Design

Prevention and Optimized Program Design

Your body works as a whole to create and transmit force. So why not train with your whole body. For example, while running you use both sides of your body to propel forward in movement. As this is true, you need to train your body as a whole and not in isolated parts in order to form a proper foundation.


With Locomotion Therapy you will be recalibrating how you move and learning how to use each of your body’s muscular subsystems to recreate these movements.

We will be incorporating the foundations of movement and exploring how to transfer force from one side of your body to the other in all planes of motion. We will be working from the ground up to create a basic foundation of strength and power in order for you to excel forward.

You will receive the guidance and assistance based upon client history, what has and has not been working for you, and your personal goals.  I look at the specific demands of your time including work, lifestyle and family. We will use what tools you have available to you including exercise equipment, gym  membership and indoor and outdoor home space.
