What is the type of mobility training you are offering in this membership? What is the difference between this and what you do one-on-one?
What I offer in this membership is mobility training based on what I do in a one-on-one setting, which is called FRC (Functional Range Conditioning).
In one-on-one training I assess the individual first to then decide what is needed to improve their mobility.
Depending on the findings in the assessment and the goals of that individual this can either be creating more range of motion or creating more control of existing range or strengthening a specific range or strengthening the full range of motion.
My preferred way of working with someone on their mobility would always be to work one-on-one as it is the most effective way.
But since I have limited time and availability to see one-on-one clients, my solution to helping more people is this membership.
In the group setting I cannot assess you, so I will over time teach you how to do a a daily self-assessment.
In the classes I will teach exercises that address common deficits and weak points and put a big emphasis on joint health, joint longevity and body control (because every person will benefit from that).
Alongside training you, I will educate you about the thought process behind mobility training so that you can eventually start to individualise your training to your specific needs.
What are the pre-requisites to become a member?
The only thing I ask of you is that you are curious to learn more about your body.
I work with people of a variety of movement backgrounds: dancers, athletes, people who spend lots of time sitting, yogis who want to balance their flexibility with strength etc. EVERYONE IS WELCOME.
What do I need to access the online platform?
The online content will be accessible via a closed facebook group.
You will need internet access and a facebook account. If you don’t have a facebook account, I recommend you make one just for this.
How much content will there be on the platform? What type of content ?
The online platform is structured into different units.
Unit 1 is content related to the morning joint hygiene routine (CARs)
Unit 2 is classes. At all times you will have 2 classes available. Every 2 weeks I take one down and replace with a new one.
Unit 3 is a section where I answer questions that come up often.
Unit 4 is bonus material such as homework, tutorials, articles etc.
I can only attend in person class once per week. Is it worth getting the membership?
Absolutely. Before I switched to a membership format, students had to sign up for one class per week and paid the same amount. Now with the membership platform you are getting more flexibility and the option to come multiple times per week for the same amount of money.
What language are the classes is in ?
In person classes will be held either in English or German, depending who is there.
All online classes will be in English.
How does payment work? Is there a minimum amount of time I have to commit to the membership?
Payment is set up as a monthly paypal payment. If you are taking advantage of the summer special offer, you will be billed the first 2 months at once, afterwards you will be billed monthly. You can cancel the subscription any time. If you cancel the subscription you will still have access until the end of the current payment cycle.
I don’t have paypal and don’t want to create a paypal account. Can I still become a member?
I use paypal because it is so easy to setup and very hassle free. It makes my life and yours a lot easier.
However if for some reason you cannot get a paypal account, please reach out and we will figure something out.
I have an injury. Can I still take classes? Is this like therapy?
Mobility work is not therapy. I am not saying that you cannot do mobility work while having an injury, I am just saying that in order to rehabilitate an injury you should see a physiotherapist. Depending on where you live I might be able to connect you to an FR provider (which are therapists trained in the FRC system). You can still participate in the classes, as long as you know your limitations and know when to modify or skip an exercise.
For example: If you have an injury on the left knee, you might have to modify or skip an exercise on that knee. But you can still do the exercise on the right knee, you can still do all the upper body and hip exercises. You can still do everything else, as long as you respect the limitations of the injured joint.
We do speak about injury mitigation in the context of mobility work. What that means is that this training is meant to help prevent/lower risk of future injuries. Again please understand that you you need physiotherapy to move past an existing injury, even if you do mobility work simultaneously.
