Do You Want to Stand Out in the Crowd?
After years of working with patients and clients, we always end up back at the basic "Foundations". As society focuses on quicker, better, faster in all aspects of their life, the ART of HOW are bodies are actually meant to move is getting lost in rehabilitation, training, and sport. When we don't understand the details of what is supposed to happen in our bodies - it is hard to know, feel, and perform or teach exercises or activities without stepping over the line of "Oops! That didn't feel so good".
We originally developed this course for our clients. So they would have the information they needed to empower them in ANY exercise class, movement, or sport they found themselves in. Our clients introduced the concepts to their trainers - whom in turn came to us and asked us to spin it so they would be able to understand, and apply the same information to all their other clients!
With all the different courses out there to take, and information out there to be Googled and YouTubed, the PRINCIPLES of movement and exercise are hard to find, tend to be buried or lost, or people make it so complicated it's hard to know how to actually apply them in real life!
So - we added BONUS content to our original course for therapist/trainers so you can learn how to apply these concepts into your practice, studio or classes!
We wanted to give you all the necessary information to start creating the proper foundations for strong and pain free movement! Learn how to reconnect to areas of lost function in your own body (often the cause of random aches and pains), and then learn how to recognize and apply this knowledge to your clients.
We've crammed so much information into this course.

Creating Dynamic Posture Through Positive Tension
What Others Are Saying....
The Body-prep course has been life changing for myself and my clients. As a personal trainer I’ve always felt there was a gap or a disconnect between what I could see and how I could get my clients to connect their mind with movements. The simple cues from Jamie’s many years of experience and Andrea’s technical assessments were the missing link I was looking for.

THE POWER OF TWO
With a Combined 27+ Years of Movement Therapy, Come Learn, Feel & Be Guided
Hi I’m Jamie (Athletic Therapist),
I'm an expert in breaking down movements to find the 'root' of a problem. My focus is to always empower change through body awareness and education. By narrowing in on the little details that if changed makes a big impact on the big picture. Through exercises I help clients discover their details so movement works and feeling better happens.
You will hear me often asking my clients: ‘ If your car breaks down and you leave it in the garage to REST when you come back to it will it start?’ Yet we expect our bodies to ’FIX’ themselves with rest.
Being an athlete at a young age and having my children later in life I have learned just how well our bodies can adapt to stress and how to appreciate how well our bodies will carry us from point A to point B. On a personal level as well as professional, these adaptations are not always for the better which can result in breakdowns along the way.
What makes me different from the others? The focus I put on the details! Work smarter NOT harder. Slow down before you speed up! This workshop will help you to identify if what your currently doing is helping or hurting you and how to make changes to make your efforts more productive.
Hi I’m Dr. Andrea (Movement Based Chiropractor),
No matter what the age, I believe in teaching patients how to move like they were designed to, so they are not dependent on "therapy" to get through the week.
I've been in clinical practice for over 10 years, with a strong rooted belief in Movement Medicine. My childhood was plagued from long-standing injuries that didn't fit into the orthopaedic model of medicine. My greatest strength in my practice is to see between the lines, and integrate orthopaedics medicine with functional rehabilitation. I link the WHY you're in pain, with WHAT to do about it. A lot of our "injuries" don't show up on x-rays, MRIs, or orthopaedic tests. If they are all "negative" and there is "no reason" for your "pain", this is where Movement Medicine really shines.
So what makes me different from the others? I believe in restoring ideal function - with whatever your body needs to do so. I am trained in a variety of techniques, and have a whole toolbox of therapies to pull from in order to diagnose, explain, treat, and rehabilitate mechanical breakdowns of the neuromuscleskeletal system.
I believe your body is capable of amazing things - it will adapt to whatever you do it - good or bad. So I help you to identify if what you're currently doing is helping or hurting you and how to make changes so your efforts more productive.
Hi I'm Charly (Certified Personal Trainer),
I'm passionate about keeping people moving. A mom of 2 very active young ones and I'm committed to keeping up. When working with clients I look to keep them fit to do all the things they love in life. “Fit to do life”.
FEEL. MOVE. LIVE.
