10-Week Functional Patterns Online Course 2017-07-18T14:50:53+00:00

10-Week Functional Patterns Online Course

We are proud to announce the launch of our 10-week online training course. This course will represent a fundamental change in our culture, specifically with regard to how we view our body in space, but also in terms of our understanding of why humans evolved in nature the way they did.

In this course, we will explore the concept of tensegrity applied to the human body.  We will attack the problems almost all people on the planet face within their musculoskeletal system by reverse engineering the way the brain and body connect.  If you are someone who suffers from pain, or gets injured often when you move your body, this is most likely why you found Functional Patterns.

Many have asked me what they could do to solve their dysfunctions and what processes I recommend. Health professionals have similar questions about their patients.  So I have chosen to create a system that offers a step-by-step approach towards gaining back a strength that humans have lost in modern times:  Structural Integrity.

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.

In this course, we will teach a step-by-step approach to addressing modern cultural adaptations.  We attack the roots of problems such as kyphosis, lordosis, scoliosis, longitudinal compressions and dysfunctional rotations, along with many other dysfunctions that lead to people having pain and performing poorly with their functional movement.  Each week, you will be given the most relevant information ever devised in the field of human movement training.

Whether you are a physical therapist trying to transition people to better movement, a chiropractor looking to have your patients hold an adjustment, a strength coach seeking to optimize your athletes’ performance while not hurting their joints, a personal trainer aiming to make your clients move and look like athletes, or an average Joe trying to find out why you’re unable to solve the problems conventional approaches cannot tackle, this 10-week program is for you.  The root solution to most problems deals with movement.  The objective quality of that movement will determine how resilient you are to the demands you face on a daily basis.

Be sure to be on the lookout for more advanced 10-week courses in the future.  FYI, if you are intending to become fully certified at Functional Patterns, this will be the required learning material to get started.

    This course has changed my mechanics in ways that I never knew were possible.

    Not only have I reconnected my left shoulder blade (winged scapula and shoulder would pop out of place for 5 years prior even after physical therapy) but I am making progress on a sprained ankle that morphed how I step years ago.

    I used to think I was working on my posture by stretching the muscles I believed to be ‘tight’ and attempting to strengthen supposed ‘weak’ muscles, but I was not respecting the human mechanical blueprint that this course lays out in a way that anybody can understand.

    This has not only shaped my own training regimen, but all my clients as well and they are seeing tremendous results due to this switch.

    Having been certified through NASM and constantly researching and reading content from MobilityWod, StrengthCamp, FitnessEducationSeminars and any sources I could find, this course taught me more in 10 weeks than years of personal research ever had.

    There is nothing else I would recommend as highly to anyone else looking to:
    – reduce/eliminate pain
    – maximize sport performance
    – improve quality of life
    – have sustainable exercise

      Hello, I have a question about this program. I have had quite a number of injuries due to the military. Including torn rotator cuff, problems with my SI joint moving in and out of alignment, very tight feeling in my traps and neck, and a reacquiring knee injury that has been diagnosed as “runners knee”. I have seen doctors and other medical professionals that want to push pain pills or just tell me to stop running. The physical therapists show me exercises that I already have been doing and have had no result. I have been a personal trainer now for a little while and I saw some videos about how to release right muscles using SMR and other techniques but this doesn’t seem to be helping as I have hoped. One of my other trainer friends told me about FP with nothing but great things to say. Will this program be able to bring me the results I have been looking for and how? Thanks in advance.

    Hi there

    just a quick one, with the streaming to one device can u clarify this, sometimes i train at home and would use my laptop to follow videos or if i am away from home i would use my phone. can i access the videos through both or only one?

      Thanks for the message and interest in Functional Patterns.

      Sadly not John, you’ll only have access to it on one device, so please make a careful decision as to which one will be most useful to you. Some people have used their laptop and recorded sections with their phone to follow later on in the gym- its a bit of a mess around but there is not much else we can do.

    Great that average Joe’s like myself can do this course. I weight train 3 times a week and have done for the last 12 months, is it possible to do this course along side traditional training or would you recommend doing this separately?

    History of muscle stains hamstring quads groins addictors from playing rugby.
    currently have a grade 2 hamstring and Adductor strain on the same left leg.
    Willing to start over again and questions I have are:
    How will the 10 week course assist in fixing these issues?
    Can I start the course while currently injured?
    Is it more practice to start on the power of posture first?

      Hey Daniel,

      That is a tricky question to answer without being able to see you.

      The 10 week online course has helped many people with all manner of ailments. The Power of Posture is a good starting point but it really makes for an awesome piece of reference material whilst doing the 10 week online course.

      What you can do is join our Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/976359545741281/ and drop message on there as you might find someone in a similar position to you who has done the course.

    I suffer with mild hip dysplasia and moderate osteoarthritis in one hip. I am told I need to strengthen my glutes and core. I have been doing the exercises given to me by my physio but no great results. I have slight scoliosis of the lower spine, and I walk from the outside of my heel rolling through to the outside edge of my big toe. I know the hip dysplasia cannot be corrected only surgical but can this course help me with the other probles?

    After 5 years of pain from doing BJJ and traditional ” functional” training I started looking for something to manage the pain. Then I thought yoga will help me, man I was so wrong! After yoga my hips were destroyd.. Then in September I watched Joe Rogan expirience with Jeremy Stephens and he mentioned Naudi and FP. After some research I felt that FP is something for real. It made sense, and it wasn’t so easy to master like stupid yoga or crosfitt. Now I’m on week 7, my hips are less pain full and I ” unlocked” my shoulder/scapula problem and is 80% better. I live in allmost 3rd world country in midle of Europe, were monthly income is allmost the cost of 10week course. And I can say that this my best investment in life. Live intentionally not habitually! Peace

    This course is the stepping stone to solving your dysfunctions at the root! No one is tackling issues like FP. Its the truth in a world only dealing with local symptoms, never addressing problems for what they really are. 10/10 would highly recommend to anyone.

Would love to do this but am studying at the moment and don’t want to sign up if i can’t devote enough time to it. Also come to Sydney, Australia next year for full workshop please!

      With regards to the course, you can spend as much or as little time as you like, in the course you go at your own pace. Some participants have said they have gone through it a 2nd time as they were in a position to be more consistent with the exercises and releases.

    Question: I’d like to do the 10 week course. I start a rugby academy June 1st, we will have 4 S&C sessions,1 core, 4 rugby skill sessions, 2 team practices, 2 mental skill sessions. My question is could I do the course along side what it is required of me at the academy? My other question are the sessions download able? If I start the 10 week course now pre academy and find it’s too much once the academy starts, will I have access to the program to restart post academy.

      Yes you can do the course alongside you current training schedule however the results you get may vary as this is not how it has been tested. You might find that it compliments you current training perfectly but we juts don’t know, when you do sign up for the course we’d love to hear how you find it compliments your existing training.

      The videos for the 10 week online course are not downloadable they do have to be streamed from the specific web site.

    How much time per day is spent on training? Can a person also expect to become stronger and lose weight while using this program?
    Is it safe to complete the exercises with a labral tear? Will they help prevent future hip issues?

      Hey Lisa,

      Thanks for the enquiry and interest in our 10 week online course.

      – Ideally you will spend at least an hour a day on the course however you can go at your own pace
      – We have had participants both lose weight and gain strength after completing the 10 week online course
      – With regards to a Labral tear we would advise you seek advice from a Dr prior to doing the course however you can go at your own pace and the course is likely to assist with the healing process
      – The 10 week course is designed to help bring the body in to efficiency which in turn will reduce your chances of getting a hip injury through poor movement mechanics/ patterns

      All the best,

    I’m a Pilates instructor working with people one on one and I’m very interested in your program. I was wandering though, if the program is also suitable for older, non athletic people? Meaning, are there modifications given to enable anyone reach the same excercise goal but in different ways so that people with disabilities Or pathologies can do it?

    If I download the program to my laptop, and then let’s say it crashes and I have to buy another one, will you allow the program to be downloaded again onto the new device? I seem to have very bad luck with my laptops 🙁

    I’m trying to work out whether to buy the Human Foundations bundle and then move onto the 10 week course, or is that the content that used to be covered in the Human Foundations bundle is now the basis of the 10 week course and then it progresses?

    I am a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist and pain medicine specialist. I am not like your traditional pain specialist. I try to minimize prescribing narcotics and do not do as many injections as others. I focus more on the identifying the dysfunctional kinetic chain. My frustration is then sending my patients to physical therapy. Even with sending them a detailed prescription they do not think along the same lines and patients come back to me saying they are no better and only to find out they still have these dysfunctions. Of course patient compliance may be a factor. Will this course help me better develop a approach to identify these dysfunctions when I exam them and better formulate a specific therapy protocol? I want to actually form my own PT center establishing my own protocols for PTs to follow and get better outcomes than the other specialists.

    Hi, I’m a collegiate distance runner, running about 80 miles a week and racing the 5k/1500m. I’ve noticed I have bad form/posture when I run, mainly, I heel-strike and my feet turn outwards on the back swing of my stride. Will this program help me correct these deficiencies and improve my running form over long distances? Thanks.

    I have a complete right ACL tear and am hoping to have ACL reconstructive surgery later in the year. I would like to do the 10 week course, but am wondering if I’ll be able to do the exercises due to my knee restrictions or if the exercises can be modified? I’m also very interested in becoming an FP Certified Practitioner. Would I need to be fully recovered from my surgery to be able to take part in the course?

    • William Menzies May 25, 2017 at 10:05 pm - Reply

      Hey Brian,

      Thanks for the message and interest in our 10 week online course.

      In order to get the most out of the course it will be beneficial to have fully recovered from the surgery. I will add that if you were to get the course now you could study the material and get a really sound understanding of the approach initially before you apply it to yourself.

      I hope this helps,

    Hi… I am a recently retired professional dancer. I’ve had hip surgery from a labrum tear and bone spurs but after time went back to working. However for the last four years I have battled terrible back pain while performing and it forced me into retirement last year. I’ve had multiple MRIs and X-rays and tried chiropractor, acupuncture, shots into my SI joints (even though orthopedic wasn’t sure that was the problem). My back hurts every day and when it goes out I am on my back for two weeks. I get incredibly sharp pains and also a constant pain that doesn’t go away. I get nerve pain all the way into my feet. I recently started to be introduced to Functional Mobility through a trainer. She actually recommended I do your program.
    I am now a dance teacher and I know my 32 years of dance training with no cross training of any kind led me to this. If I do your program I cannot quit teaching dance. Will this be an issue? How much time a day will I need to put in?
    ( I know from working with her that I have zero ankle mobility, incredibly tight calves, massive duck feet from ballet, no thoracic mobility at all and yet somehow managed to dance at full capacity- no wondering I fell apart. If this program works for me it will completely change my life. I’m 35 and can barely walk anymore- especially days after I teach dance. I will not have access to a pulley machine. But can get everything else. )

      Hey Kassie,

      Thank you so much for the comment and interest in Functional Patterns. We’e sorry to hear of you discomfort.

      There is no real definitive answer to the question you put forth. There are a lot of variables involved and without actually seeing you in person its hard to tell.

      We have had some participants who are athletes achieve amazing results whilst continuing their current training regime. You may find that you get better results if you take a mini pause on the Dance teaching. Are there any breaks between semesters etc that you could use to commence the course?

      What I would strongly advise is that you visit your local FP practitioner. Send an email to support@functionalpatterns.com with your location and we can pass on details of your nearest practitioner.

      I hope this all makes sense, kindest regards,

    Hi, I was diagnosed with Kyphosis a few years ago when I was about 14 and have been looking for ways to try and straighten my spine. I play football at a high level but I have been told the only way I can fix my kyphosis is by having surgery which would stop me from playing football for the rest of my life. I was wondering if this 10 week course would be able to fix my problem if so I would be extremely interested in giving it a go as I am very willing to do anything I can to fix this problem.

    Hey FP crew,

    What are the major differences between this 10 week course VS the Human Foundations and Training for Humans Systems? I have been through The Power of Posture, the Human Foundations and Training for Humans Systems, so I am curious as to what I will gain from the 10 Week course.. will it be worth it to also run through the 10 week course, or will I be repeating what I have already learned from FP?

    Thanks, Guys!

It is our most up to date material and features some new and improved techniques and explanations. We’re not able to categorically say that it will be “worth you while” however I recommend that you make a post on the FP Doers Facebook page and ask there.
