We got to kick off the first course for PRI in 2019 at the University of Arizona in Tucson! Special thanks to Ben Crawford and the Sports Medicine Team for hosting! Amazing facilities and amenities and this was a perfect site to kick of the year. I have confidence the PRI minds are going to be growing after this course as we had a very engaged group. I’m excited to hear how they will be growing and using the material over the next year!
The PRI Fitness and Movement Course is an advanced 2 day course geared to address the integration of dynamic thoracic posture and axial frame asymmetry. It’s a principles based course to empower fitness and performance patterns through respiration and alternating reciprocal activity. Our manual is full of exercises to get clients moving and optimizing dynamic postural relationships, so that their workouts can help them better adapt in a stressed, technology driven, and progressively changing world.
There is so much intangible value of understanding the empowering benefits of how to coach and train a diaphragm and pelvic/hip complex to work together. This knowledge is foundational for all fitness and movement professionals, including Personal Trainers, Strength and Conditioning Coaches, Athletic Trainers, and Physical Therapists. I’m excited to be entering into our 3rd year of teaching this course. This year we have some new focuses on screening and programming. Some of the “exercises” taught in this course can be used as screening techniques and/or as training techniques. A true test to an athletic body in balance is when clients can move in and out of a good diaphragmatic position and “feel” the correct family of muscles working… automatically… without excessive effort. Can the right things work together? Can relationships stay intact?
Lastly, it wouldn’t be a complete trip to Tucson, without a stop at one of James Anderson’s favorite restaurants Café Poca Cosa. Classy, delightful experience and such a yummy surprise plate of food. I have no clue what I ate, but it was good and I hope to return one day!
Want to progress your PRI understanding or get introduced to the science of Postural Restoration? Then this is a great course for you! Hope to see you at one of our courses this year! Next month, we will be teaching at a private host site, then off to Brunswick, Maine - Syndey Australia - Boston, Massachusetts - Dublin, Ohio - and then Fort Collins, Colorado.
