Functional Training Concepts – Improving the Gait Cycle with Christa

Working posture and the gait cycle with Christa. Christa suffered from a stroke 30 years ago and has been battling the effects of it ever since. She came to Functional Patterns 3-4 months ago with a fire to get healthier after struggling with here overall movement and the results since then have been dramatic. She has been using a cane and a brace to walk and we are now getting close to putting them both aside (threw the brace out the day before yesterday). Her stability, strength and mobility are increasing with every session. She practices every day what we teach and it makes it possible for us to help her. Thank you for everything Christa, you are a highly motivating person for all of us at FP!!! It’s people like you that keep the fire burning! I am looking forward to see you conquer these movement obstacles once and for all 🙂
