LIVE ONLINE COURSE BROUGHT TO YOU EXCLUSIVELY BY OUR MASTER TRAINER SARA HEARNE

Due to this difficult situation we are all facing, we have decided to move our courses online and LIVE stream them. The Mobility & Flexibility® course is the only course like this available now. Not only do you get to enjoy it from the comfort of your own home, but you also get to train with our PFS Master Trainer Sara Hearne. Despite this being a LIVE course online, numbers remain limited to ensure an outstanding learning experience. Book now to avoid disappointment, as course registration will close once its full.

 

PFS Mobility & Flexibility is aimed at Fitness Instructors, Personal Trainers, Gym Instructors and Pilates and Yoga Instructors as well as Physiotherapists, Movement Specialists, Massage Therapists Body Workers.

 

 *This is prerequisite Instructor qualification for both myover40® & TPMobility® program courses

These programmes were developed by experienced specialists within the fitness industry and are the only training courses that incorporate elements of rolling, auto massage and trigger point pressure therapy.

 MyOver40® is a training system with structured class templates and teaching instruction.

See https://myover40.com/ for more info on MyOver40®

TPMobility® is a course for those who want to learn more about how to apply the techniques and movements in our program to their own fitness instruction, classes etc.

See https://tpmobility.com/ for more info on TPMobility®

 

The Mobility and Flexibility class (MyOver40® or TPMobility®) was created to help people achieve, maintain and enjoy healthy movement throughout everyday activities as well as other exercises in the form of sports, dance, etc. without any restrictions, discomfort or pain.

 

Unfortunately, due to injuries and various imbalances many of us struggle to have free and painless movement.

 

In the past stretching was promoted to limit the risk of injury. Recent research questions this line of thinking – we now know that injury prevention is related to force absorption which stretching on its own may decrease. It does not mean stretching is useless but that to achieve healthy ranges of motions we also need to take care of and control our joints.

 

Our modern lives limit the need of movement which our bodies were created to enjoy. Therefore, our joints lost their ability to move as human joints were designed to.

 

“The body will become better at whatever you do or don’t do. You do not move? The body will make you better at NOT moving by locking the tissues together. If you move, the body will allow you more movement.”

 

We try to compensate for the lack of movement by working out through sports which often require the ranges of motion our joints no longer possess - which leads to injuries.

 

To achieve healthy joints and enjoy healthy ranges of motion, we need to take care of the two aspects MOBILITY and FLEXIBILITY.

 

MOBILITY is the joint’s ability to move through a certain ROM (range of motion) without restrictions and WITH CONTROL. It is that control which truly defines it and allows us to move into ACTIVE ROM. To improve that control, we need to train the muscles and tissues around the joint.

 

FLEXIBILITY is the ability of the muscles, tissues and/or joints to move through a range of motion passively - PASSIVE ROM.

 

We used to believe stretching increased ROM by permanently changing the structure of the muscles and tissues. Now we know that flexibility improvement IS NOT a result of structural changes but the increase of STRETCH TOLERANCE. It is about training the nervous system to allow certain ranges of motion.

 

ABOUT YOUR TRAINER

 

The course will be delivered by Master Trainer & Course Co-Author Sara Hearne. 

During her 11 years’ experience as a fitness & health trainer and Sports Therapist, Sara encountered various dysfunctions that hampered her client’s daily life and affected their movement and function. This resulted in Sara learning a variety of new methods to improve her client’s quality of life.

Sara has studied from top leaders in the field of Fascial Health. Including Tom Myers, Robert Schleip, Ana Barretxeguren, Julian Baker, Ming Chew PT...to name a very small few.

Sara lectures for WWETB in Health & Fitness, Tutors for Irish Sports Partnerships and Healthy Ireland. Has worked as a Physio for An Post Rás and taught a variety of group/1-2-1 fitness.

 Sara now presents this course, co-authored by MYOVER40®.

 

DON’T MISS OUT!

As awareness of the benefits of mobility training is growing, top trainers have recognised this course on an international scale. On the cutting edge of Fitness & Health, these programs address areas commonly unmanaged in our everyday life or in our fitness programs, leading to many issues physically.
