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 at the moment. 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.

MASTER TRAINER Mobility & Flexibility® programme is a course aimed at Fitness Instructors, Personal Trainers, Gym Instructors and Pilates and Yoga Instructors as well as Physiotherapists.

This is an Instructor qualification in both myover40 & TPMobility courses. Those who participate and qualify, will become Trainers of both 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. Designed to be delivered in a 35-55 minute class which is divided into 3 parts and which differ from the existing standards:

  1. Body Prep

A comprehensive warm up which allows oxygenated blood to reach your muscles. Our body prep takes approximately 12 minutes and works on all major muscle and tendon groups in different axes and planes. At this stage, we use all joint movements such as Flexion and Extension | Abduction and Adduction | Circumduction | Rotation | Supination and Pronation | Dorsiflexion and Plantar Flexion | Inversion and Eversion | Protraction and Retraction.

  1. Auto-massage

The rolling and kneading locates and reduces pain in the body;

  1. Structure of 5  

Part 1: Focuses on improving MOBILITY & ACTIVE ROM.

We work on a particular range of motion of a joint in a controlled manner strengthening the muscles and tissues around it (ACTIVE ROM).

Part 2: Aims to improve FLEXIBILITY and stretches the structures which were worked on in part one (PASSIVE ROM).

 

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 as a way 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 doesn’t mean stretching is useless but that in order 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 don’t 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.

In order 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. In order 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.
