Posture training is a new fad in the field of exercise. I call it a fad because basic posture training works only to a limited degree. Although there is posture training in this program, we take it several steps further than any other system on the market. Why is this system different? Very simple. At the origin of this company, the focus was oriented around training humans in relation to their biological characteristics. This focus has never changed. Although this was a radical concept just a few years ago, many are now having to accept the implications of this approach.
To clarify what we mean by training humans in relation to their biological characteristics, just think about a dog. How does a dog move? It’s not complicated, a dog moves on four legs. It runs that way and walks that way most of its life. Now ask yourself this: if you were to train a dog, would you train it to run like a human being? I know this may seem like a crazy question, but it’s not. Humans move and run on two feet and their structure has adapted to move that way for millions of years. Dogs adapted very differently. Therefore the training of a dog would differ to that of a human. Hear me out; I’m going to bring it back together.
If we analyze the way people have been training, there is very little transferability to how this training aligns with human movement. Humans are standers, walkers, runners and throwers as a priority in their movement. Of course, there are some other primal patterns of movement, but these four are the types that humans depended on most in nature. Therefore this is the basis of training at Functional Patterns. We have discovered that things like squatting and lifting come as a byproduct after establishing these priorities in human movement. Since no other system in the exercise and rehabilitation industries showcases results of human structures changing for the better the way Functional Patterns does, it is safe to assume they have not come to the same revelations.
At Functional Patterns, we are known for getting results where other systems have failed. Because our basepoint has been on analyzing the gait cycles of people like Barry Sanders, Carl Lewis, Usain Bolt and Randy Moss; the three-dimensional reactions of athletes like Floyd Mayweather, Juan Manuel Marquez, Deon Sanders, Tim Hardaway and Michael Jordan; the throwing capabilities of Tom Brady, Russell Wilson, Dan Marino, along with many other tested movers, we have managed to create an objective viewpoint on correcting human dysfunctions. Functional Patterns works because our ideas developed from the natural world.
