What is Foundation Training?

Foundation Training is a movement practice designed to restore the body’s natural order and put YOU at the centre of your health. It teaches your body how to properly support itself and move as nature intended. It was developed by chiropractor and movement expert, Dr Eric Goodman, to heal his own chronic back pain. Having refused spinal fusion surgery prescribed to him by several doctors, he managed to get himself out of pain within a year. Now, years later, Dr Goodman leads an active, pain free life and has developed an incredible series of exercises to help others do the same.

 

Thousands of people who were in pain with anything from sore knees and failing hips to bad backs and painful shoulders, have discovered remarkable healing through Foundation Training. The power of decompression and the restoration of correct movement make this programme a natural and effective alternative to heavy-handed medical intervention.

 

This programme is not a temporary remedy, but a systematic solution that offers long-term benefits. Practicing Foundation Training enables one to reach, achieve and experience incredible health and wellness.

Spot the difference...what do you see?

They may look similar at first glance but these two squats involve very different musculature and are placing very different strains on the joints.

🔸VIDEO 1:
In the first video, the movement is led by the hips. The hips are the first joint to move and they specifically draw the weight backwards.
🔹Result: the large muscles of the posterior chain are recruited to drive the movement and take load away from the joints.

🔸VIDEO 2:
In the second video, the movement is initiated at the knees which results in the weight being drawn forwards.
🔹Result: the majority of the load is taken through the quads putting unnecessary strain on the knees.

🔶Try it!🔶
Feel the difference in muscle activation when you pull your hips back vs bending the knees forwards.

Throw us a comment below with your findings...

⚠️ If you experience knee pain when squatting, you are highly likely falling into Video 2 technique. A correct squat should not strain the knees!

Strength is not limited by age. The capacity for change is always present. Break free from the limitations you've created for yourself. ⁠

At 88 years old Allan, pictured here doing the Surf Squat, not only understands this but embodies it. He has overcome, he has persisted, he is thriving. ⁠

Foundation Training gives you more ability to capitalize on adaptive tools life has offered for your use to get stronger.⁠

We have to teach our bodies how to withstand the riggers of modern life, otherwise we spiral into a pit of pain and compression.

@foundationtraining teaches you to use your every day activities and movement patterns to build you up rather than break you down.

Foundation Training Instructors: UK

Carol Seaborne of BodyGood Therapies @bodygoodtherapies is also joining us as an Affiliated Instructor and we couldn’t be happier to welcome her into team FTI UK.

Carol attended the Foundation Training Instructor Certification in September 2019 after her sister had experienced great results working with our Assistant Director, Kat.

We are really looking forward to working with Carol - she has a real thirst for knowledge and is always looking to learn and develop her teaching skills. Here’s Carol’s story:

“My journey to Foundation Training has been incredible. Similar to Sue @sueglasgow I have my own business working as a Soft Tissue Therapist in Kent. It’s rewarding helping people feel better but, as a Soft Tissue Therapist, I’ve always felt there is something missing - I needed a way to help people stay out of pain so that they didn’t have to keep coming back again and again.

I have suffered with chronic shoulder and hip pain myself that no amount of physio or conventional exercises has been able to get rid of. Foundation Training has given me the solution. I have learnt how to move correctly and build healthy movement patterns into my daily life. My pain is finally under control and this is what I am now able to teach my clients.

Being part of the incredible FTI UK team is a great opportunity for me and I can’t wait to work together to spread the word of Foundation Training.

It’s time to get the nation moving better!”
