MYTH 1: IF I IGNORE IT, IT WILL GO AWAY
Small pains are your body’s early warning system to get you to pay attention before things get too bad. Stiff neck, sore shoulder, twinges in your lower back - this is how your body tells you to pay attention before these small annoyances become major problems
MYTH 2: NO PAIN, NO GAINMany athletes have grown up with this philosophy - but it’s what leads to major career-ending injuries, often with lifelong consequences. Pain is NOT something to be ignored, lived with or just for ‘weak’ people. It is your body’s natural warning system trying to get you to stop movements that are causing problems inside your body. Listen carefully to what your body’s telling you.
MYTH 3: WITH AGE COMES PAINEveryday aches and pains are NOT a natural part of life. They are a result of lifting, sitting, standing, picking up objects and all the small daily activities that we do without really thinking… but we’re doing them in a way that causes pain in our bodies.
Instead of continuing to cause pain, it’s time to learn better ways to move through your daily life making those aches and pains a thing of the past.
MYTH 4: REST WILL HEAL PAIN
Well-meaning advice givers often spread this age-old advice to ‘rest’ your pain. Rest is important for letting your body heal, recover and avoid overtraining… but rest by itself does nothing to target what was causing the pain in the first place.
And if you go right back to the activity that caused the pain without learning how to prevent that pain, you will end up in a downward spiral and eventually may have to give up that activity altogether.
MYTH 5: SITTING IS THE ROOT CAUSE OF ALL PAIN
Sitting is not a problem - in fact, it can feel amazing at the end of a long day! But when you combine sitting for a long time with things like poor posture, standing, walking and lifting things incorrectly along with other movements that can hurt you throughout your day - sitting can make the pain much worse.
Instead, it’s important to retrain your body in how to properly sit, walk, lift and move throughout your day in ways that help your body instead of hurting it.

I had recurring lower back problems when I was a bit younger, but since starting Foundation Training I have felt constant improvement with little to no pain whatsoever. My flexibility and stability are both the best they have ever been. As my career is growing and I am now surfing on the World Tour, I can easily tell you that Foundation Training is a huge part of my success as a surfer."

What is Foundation Training?
Foundation Training is a simple and effective corrective exercise modality that brings the body to its full potential by anchoring the pelvis, decompressing the spine and integrating muscle chains. It's a re-wiring of the poor patterns ingrained in our bodies over a lifetime that were causing pain, deterioration and inefficiency.
It's a way for your body to feel really, really good. There are many nuances to the program that work to realign and activate the whole body. Foundation Training trains you to be strong in proper posture with proper movement patterns so that strong, pain-free movement becomes natural and normal. When the body moves well, it feels well!
Is Foundation Training for me?
Foundation Training is safe and beneficial for the majority of people. Foundation Training is a powerful tool whether you're seeking relief from pain or the edge on performance.
Our modern world is compressing us. Sitting, driving, phones. We're not behaving the way our bodies expect us too. Inactivity and inefficient movement cause breakdown. By changing how you move in daily life you can dramatically change how you feel in life.
Some of the conditions we use caution with are: Spodylolysthesis and Central Canal Stenosis. If you have concerns about your particular situation, speak with your doctor before beginning this or any movement program.
Where do I start with all this?
Foundation Training Connect is a great place to begin your journey. This is the comprehensive Foundation Training program and comes with valuable bonuses plus the latest program updates.
Our Foundation Training Connect program has the most up to date video material out. The course modules include learning sequences and workouts. It includes new exercises, workouts and bonuses not on the original DVD and book.
To get the most out of your efforts we highly recommend working with a Certified Instructor or attending a live Workshop in your area led by a Certified Foundation Training Instructor.
If you’re interested in improving the lives of others by teaching Foundation Training, join a Certification.
How do I use the Foundation Training Connect program?
We recommend spending about 20 minutes each day on the exercises. The first modules have brief learning sequences to introduce you to the exercises and the second set of modules has more structured workouts of varying lengths and focuses. After you become familiar and strong with the exercises in the first section, move on to the workouts included in the second section.
The first module should be learned in order, but after that it's up to you which ones you'd like to repeat and focus on! Although we have specific recommended daily programs to follow, ultimately you should always be the judge on if you’re ready to move on to the next level or not, particularly if you are experiencing pain from an acute injury.
You can do one workout every day or more, you can mix and match, stick with the first workouts and move up as you become stronger and more comfortable with the movements, whatever feels right to you. You can even take your practice outside!
I still use the original Book/DVD, should I upgrade?
We always recommend people practice the most up to date material available. Our original program is very effective, but we are in constant development and over the years have developed newer and better ways of optimizing the body.
We are so committed to your journey that if you’ve purchased a previous version of this program (DVD or Digital Download) from Foundation Training in the past 12 months, email [email protected] and we’ll credit 100% of your previous purchase price towards this program. (proof of purchase and some restrictions apply)
If you still want to use the original program try incorporating the principles of Anchoring and Decompression to the work. These principles have a heavy focus in the newer material and are exemplified by the knee squeeze and rib cage expansion in our Prone Decompression Video.
