This past weekend, James and I presented PRI Integration for Fitness and Movement Course at a beautiful Pro Sports Club performance facility just outside of Seattle, WA. The first day was jammed pack with what attendees would say "ah ha" moments. One even said to me "You transformed how I look at the core. I will never look at an athlete the same again". How awesome is that?! I am so grateful to those who have supported the endeavor of putting this course together. Each time we teach it, I just get more passionate and inspired to share the material because I see how well it received and how many people enjoy learning it. This time we broke lab up into stations and allotted more time for attendees to experience more exercises. I also broke the exercises up into groups which helped categorize functionality and use with the many new exercises found in this manual.
This Seattle course was jammed packed with an equal ratio of attendees who have never been to a PRI course with those who have been exposed to the material through introductory and secondary courses. I love the diversity that exists in these courses. It really facilities a learning environment and challenges us to keep things simple and practical --- which I find those most experienced in PRI really like that. One attendee commented "This course brought it all together for me. This would be a great first course for people to take on their PRI journey".
Let's face it, the plethora of knowledge available to learn for wellness, fitness, rehab, and movement health professionals is nothing short of overwhelming. Yet learning how to facilitate better breathing, evaluate and maintain movement health and posture three dimensionally is some of the most fundamental and important things we can do for ourselves, as well as our clients, patients, and athletes.
Thank you to Carl, Amanda and the amazing staff at the Pro Sports Club for being gracious hosts!
Next course: London in a few weeks!
