Live Courses to Uplevel Your Skills!

Fitness for Structural Health 
October 3, 2017, 7:00 – 8:30 pm 
Moving Spirit Studio 
FREE Event! 

Structural Integrity Creates a Platform for Strength, Mobility, Power and Endurance! What often gets missed in even the best fitness programs is movement that creates integrated support for the body in motion. When structural control begins to erode, overall fitness and performance levels decrease, coordination and flow are reduced and effort is amplified. And the trouble is – throwing more muscle at the problem is usually NOT the answer!

Join Integrated Movement Specialist Susannah Steers for an informal presentation about how structural support & control are critical elements in any fitness program; from rehab to elite performance. Learn how to identify parts of the structure that need better support, or a more efficient loading strategy. Learn the importance of setting your structure up for a tough challenge, and what you can do to restore your structure to its best after you’ve pushed the boundaries. Understand how improving your structural loading strategies can improve core function too!
