Get Out of Pain - Improve Athletic Performance
The Modern Day Crisis
Life in the 21st century all too often means living an extremely sedentary and immobile lifestyle - one that encourages too much time spent hunched over screens, devices, steering wheels, and desks. Assuming these poor positions throughout the day without adequate muscular strength to resist and push back against gravity can lead to degeneration of our joints, inefficiency of our muscles and unnecessary pain. Our habits of sitting and bending forward, combined with the ever constant pull of gravity, cause a compression force on our bodies that is detrimental to every aspect of our health. We modern humans must learn to live and move the way our bodies are designed to move or else we leave ourselves vulnerable to pain, illness, fatigue, and overwhelming general malaise.
Foundation Training Defined
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 Dr. Eric Goodman, to heal his chronic back pain and avoid surgery for multiple disc herniations. This programme is not a temporary remedy, but a systematic solution that creates long-term health. Foundation Training enables one to reach, achieve, and experience incredible health and wellness.
How it Works
Foundation Training uses a combination of powerful movements, intentional poses, and conscious breathing to work to activate the muscles in your posterior chain.When practiced regularly, your pain diminishes, your resistance to injury increases, and your body comes to life.
Always consult your physician before beginning any exercise program. If you experience any pain or difficulty with these exercises, stop and consult a certified Foundation Training Instructor or your healthcare provider.

Lakey Peterson, Women's Surfing Champion: Practicing Foundation Training for the past 4 years has been one of the most critical decisions of my surfing career. I had recurring lower back problems when I was a bit younger, but since starting Foundation Training I have felt constant improvement with little to no pain whatsoever. My flexibility and stability are both the best they have ever been. As my career is growing and I am now surfing on the World Tour, I can easily tell you that Foundation Training is a huge part of my success as a surfer.
