Our initial, mandatory two-hour assessment is a detailed evaluation of your current physical well-being.
First, we perform an InBody 570 scan to determine your body composition.
Your practitioner will then review and explain the results.
You'll then have a thorough discussion about your current lifestyle and nutrition habits.
Based on this information, your practitioner will help you formulate a plan to create new healthier life habits to supplement your training program.
Next, we will examine the effectiveness of your breathing patterns and
analyze how your joints are stacked in a rested posture.
We will then conduct a detailed gait analysis by filming your movement in slow motion.
Gait is the specific sequence the body goes through when walking and running.
Observing an individual’s specific movement patterns allows us to see deeper into a body’s functional capacity.
For example, if your body does not lightly absorb the shock from the ground when you run,
we can potentially pinpoint a compression somewhere up the kinetic chain, like the ankle, knee, hip, lower back, and spine.
Our techniques will help anchor the stress off of these compressed areas,
which will then reduce inflammation and alleviate chronic aches and pains.
The more you understand how gait is connected to your structural integrity,
the more we can help you solve your problems and reach your fitness goals.
After your assessment, you will then continue your personal development in 1 on 1 training sessions with your Functional Patterns biomechaincs specialist.
During your first sessions, you will be learning new movements and techniques that will most likely feel completely foreign to you.
We will be focusing greatly on ratios, coordination and muscle tension.
Every movement you do will be heavily queued, meaning you will be moving slowly through motions while your biomechanics specialist tells you very specific adjustments that they want you to make throughout the course of each movement.
These include tilting, shifting and rotating to turn on the correct muscles and to ensure as much symmetry and safety as possible.
These personal sessions will prime your body to progress into more complex dynamic and
explosive movements without experiencing injury.
The “fundamentals” of Functional Patterns involves correcting your posture through various techniques like
joint stacking, active spinal decompression, diaphragmatic breathing, and re-tensioning.

We also offer Semi - Private Training Sessions as well.
Our Semi-Private Training Sessions are a more affordable option and allows up to four people to train together.
Although you will be sharing time, our highly capable practitioners will still fully address your individual concerns.
At this stage, you will have completed the initial assessment and started your
one-on-one training sessions with a practitioner.
Access to the FP Fundamental Group Classes is based on your performance level
and your access is at the discretion of your practitioner.
Your safety is our highest priority.
This class is highly oriented around proper breathing, posture alignment, balance, and pain alleviation techniques.
We will begin by establishing the proper tensions between different areas of the body.
We will then progress into slow and controlled dynamic movements to test these connections and reintegrate the body as a whole.
Once you have completed the one-on-one sessions and passed our screening evaluation,
you can then advance into the Performance Level.
This will enable you to attend our Performance classes in conjunction with ongoing personal training sessions.
This class is structured around the application of all our training methods.
As a warm-up, we will begin with a combination of realignment and chambering techniques
to ensure proper connections between the entire body.
We will then progress into circuit-based training which consists of multi-plane ballistic and pendulum movements.
This class is a great way to train in all phases of exercise: stabilization, strength, endurance, hypertrophy and power.
It’s also a great way to test your structural integrity between private training sessions,
so that you better understand what you need to work on with your personal practitioner.
