Is A Foundation Training Discovery Workshop Right For You?
First, a note: We cannot give you specific guidance on your condition and we highly recommend you check with your doctor prior to undertaking this or any other program to ensure you’re healthy enough for exercise.
Foundation Training was created by our Founder, Dr. Eric Goodman, because of his own debilitating back pain while he was in Chiropractic school. We understand and work with clients every day who have struggled with acute and chronic pain.
The key to Foundation Training are the biomechanical movements that are designed to retrain how you move, sit and stand so you stop injuring yourself and start using your muscles powerfully, as they were designed to work.
We have modifications for people who are just starting out or have limited mobility, as well as workouts that would challenge professional athletes who need to recover or get an ‘edge’on their elite performance (and everything in between). These are invaluable skills that will help you live a more pain-free life, whether you’re 7 or 97.

Americans spend over $50 billion each year relieving pain, often with marginal relief at best.
That pain leads to:
FACT: Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work and the second most common reason for doctor visits according to the American Chiropractic Association.
Increased Use of Opioid Painkillers
FACT: The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that sales of prescription painkillers in the U.S. nearly quadrupled from 1999 to 2014. Back pain is one of the highest contributors to that increase as more and more people find themselves struggling with long term, chronic, debilitating pain.
Decreased Quality Sleep
FACT: If you’ve ever been in pain you know how hard it is to get a restful night’s sleep. People suffering from chronic pain find themselves tossing and turning trying to find relief… then wake up barely able to get out of bed each morning. And the more they hurt, the harder it is to sleep. It becomes a vicious cycle that will continue to worsen without intervention.
Limited Daily Activities
FACT: When everything hurts all the time, it’s hard to fully enjoy life. Athletes find themselves unable to train in their favorite sport. Grandparents find themselves too stiff and sore to play with their grandkids. Gamers can no longer enjoy their favorite pastime. Pain, stiffness and discomfort keeps us from doing what we love in life.
Expanded Medical Interventions
FACT: Back surgeries are among the most expensive and dangerous types of medical procedures out there. Spinal fusion, laminectomy, foraminotomy, disc replacement and more take a big toll on your body and could cost well over $50,000. Plus, recovering from spinal surgery can take months or years… with no guarantee that the surgery will actually lead to pain relief.
So unless you’re part of a very small minority, you’re either in pain right now… or you’re going to be in the future.
8 Reasons You Need To Attend A Foundation Training Discovery Workshop Now
1. Foundation Training Philosophy
Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of Foundation Training. The movements have been carefully designed and perfected over years of practical application to deliver a big impact quickly.
We’ll start the day by going way beyond the book and DVDs, teaching you the latest understanding of how the Foundation Training movements work with your body to correct poor movement patterns that are the root cause of lifelong pain.
You’ll quickly gain a deep understanding of how your body is designed to work. You’ll learn how things like poor posture throw our bodies out of balance. Once you have this understanding, you’ll feel empowered to identify unnecessary stress and strains in your life that are negatively impacting your overall health and wellness.
We start our practical application with the seven key decompression movements which will begin to loosen up and counteract the effects gravity has on your body.
In our modern lifestyle, our ‘natural’ posture is actually squeezed and constricted by the effects of gravity constantly pushing down on our body.
Our 4 Decompression exercises are designed to liberate, lengthen and strengthen your body. Your ribcage will expand, your spine will elongate and your breathing will feel full and natural after this segment.
You will also discover how to easily integrate Decompression into your daily life with a few simple cues you’ll learn during the workshop.
3. Small Group Breakouts
We’ve built a number of small group breakouts into the day. These breakouts ensure that you get personalized and hands-on help with all the Foundation Training movements.
You will be with a certified instructor who has completed a rigorous training, practical application and assessment process. Your certified instructor will answer all your questions, demonstrate any movements that you learn, help adjust you into proper form and modify any movements for your specific body.
We want to help you quickly feel and practice the movements so you get the most out of your practice. Often a slight change in your foot, rotating your hip slightly or pushing on a specific toe will make all the difference in the effectiveness of the movement.
Because we have a maximum of 10 students to 1 instructor ratio, you’ll get the personalized guidance you need during the workshop.
4. Proper Movement Patterns
We’ll cover 2 key exercises designed to teach you how to anchor your body. Anchoring involves engaging the muscles of the core that connect the pelvis to the lower body to create a downward pull that the breath can lift away from in order to maximize Decompression of the torso. You’ll learn some simple, yet incredibly effective movements that will strengthen and lengthen the muscles that Anchor your body.
Then we’ll take your decompressed body into some more integrative movements. These movements are the key to ensuring your body hinges at the hips which is required for spinal stability, hip mobility and a body in better balance.
5. Groups Q&A
Throughout the workshop you will have ample opportunity to ask questions, get personalized help and modify the movements to your body.
Towards the end of the day, we’ll hold a group question and answer session to ensure that everyone’s questions are thoroughly covered.

Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve been in pain so long… will this really help me?
First, check in with your doctor before you begin any powerful program.
The interesting elements of Foundation Training are the movements that retrain how you move, sit and stand so you stop injuring yourself and start using your muscles as powerfully as they were designed to work.
We have modifications for people who are just starting out or have limited mobility, as well as workouts that would challenge professional athletes who need to recover or get an ‘edge’on their elite performance (and everything in between). These are life skills that will help you live a more pain-free life, whether you’re 7 or 97.
I haven’t worked out in years… do I need to lose weight and/or get in shape before trying?
The short answer here is absolutely not! In fact, Foundation Training is where you should start.
The reason we call it Foundation Training is because it’s what you need to be in shape and build a healthy body. In fact, beginning a fitness program without the foundation of proper movement will contribute to injuries, degeneration and/or pain.
As always, you should check with your doctor/practitioner prior to beginning any program if you have any question about your readiness, but once you receive the OK, you are fine just as you are. We have a range of clients – from very young to senior citizens. From pro athletes to life-long couch lovers. You do not need to workout, lose weight or ‘get ready’ for Foundation Training – instead you simply need to start at the beginning and take it at your own pace.
We do recommend that you take it in baby steps – and follow the step-by-step guidance laid out in Foundation Training Connect, in an In-Person Workshop or work directly with a Certified Instructor for one-on-one personalized help.
I have another exercise program already (Yoga, Crossfit, Biking, Running, etc…). Can this work with what I’m already doing?
100% yes. We often have clients who are very active – running, walking, weight lifting, surfing, biking and more — and they want to know if they should do Foundation Training before or after they exercise.
We recommend doing Foundation Training before AND after your other workouts.
Foundation Training is a phenomenal way to warm up and activate your muscles prior to exercise. Many of our clients have found their workouts are stronger and more gratifying after using Foundation Training as a warm-up.
You’ll also see benefits AFTER your workout. As opposed to passive stretching, Foundation Training takes your muscles to length under tension creating a strong support structure to carry you past your workout and through the rest of your day.
Is there any special equipment that I need to buy to get Foundation Training to work?
Nothing special is needed.
In fact, we recommend you be barefoot while practicing these movements for best possible results and improvements.
The important thing is that you feel comfortable and able to move easily.
Why should I buy Foundation Training programs when there are so many free resources already available?
We do have a number of free videos so that you get a taste of our teaching style and what Foundation Training is all about. However, the videos are simply a sample, they’re a peek into the Foundation Training world – not a step-by-step comprehensive program.
All of our programs go much, much deeper into teaching the specifics of each movement in a step-by-step fashion as you learn and practice each new skill. Some of our free content is aimed at people who already have an understanding of our movements, and is not a good place to start.
With our step-by-step approach in our paid programs, you are able to start at the beginning and progress at your own pace. We highly recommend beginning with Foundation Training Connect and/or attending a live in-person workshop to get the most out of learning Foundation Training.
Is there a difference between the Online Programs and the Discovery Workshops?
Yes and no – all the core Foundation Training movements are the same. However, level of instruction, the style in which they’re taught, and the ability to personalize the program to your specific situation will vary depending on which program you select.Foundation Training Connect Online Programs. Connect is the platform where we are able to bring the latest and greatest advancements in Foundation Training to you wherever you are, and include new programs, resources, and workouts available 24/7 on your device. CORE ELEMENTS – our pinnacle training program with the entire library of Foundation Training exercises is part of the Connect platform.
Discovery Workshops cover the same fundamental Foundation Training movements, but you also have the added bonus of having a Master Instructor correcting your form in real time, demonstrating and personalizing all the movements, and answering all your specific questions. In addition, you’ll get a personalized training program customized to your unique needs and goals as well as 8-weeks of FREE access to CORE ELEMENTS by attending a Discovery Workshop.
