Radical in its simplicity, Dr. Eric Goodman’s visionary approach to mindful movement corrects the complacent adaptations that lead to back and joint pain, and teaches us to harness the body’s natural movement patterns into daily activities to make us fit, healthy, and pain free.

Our sedentary lifestyle has led to an epidemic of chronic pain. By adapting to posture and movement that have us out of balance—including sitting all day at a keyboard, tilting our heads forward to look at our phones—we consistently compromise our joints, give our organs less room to function, and weaken our muscles. How we hold and live in our bodies is fundamental to our overall health, and the good news is that we all hold the key to a healthier body.

Dr. Goodman has spent years studying human physiology and movement. He has trained world-class athletes for better performance, and has healed people of all ages and occupations of lifelong debilitating pain. His theory of self-healing is now available to everyone. His practical program trains the posterior muscle chain—shoulders, back, butt, and legs—shifting the burden of support away from joints and putting it back where it belongs: into large muscle groups.

Filled with helpful diagrams and sixty color photographs, True to Form shows readers how to successfully integrate these powerful movements into everyday life—from playing with the kids to washing dishes to long hours in the office—transforming ordinary physical actions into active and mindful movements that help to eliminate pain, up your game, or simply feel more energetic. True to Form shows you how to move better, breathe better, and get back to using your body the way nature intended.

Product Description

Stretch. Strengthen. Breathe. The foundation of a pain-free life starts here.

Hunching all day at a keyboard, tilting our heads forward over our phones, commuting long hours, slouching on the couch—our sedentary lifestyle has led to an epidemic of chronic pain. The consequences are poor postures that throw our bodies out of balance, causing the unnecessary stress and strain that compromise our joints, restrict organ function, and weaken our muscles. How we live in our bodies is fundamental to our overall wellness. The good news is that we all hold the key to a healthier body.

Dr. Eric Goodman has spent years studying human physiology and movement, and has helped people of all ages and occupations heal and correct lifelong debilitating pain. Called Foundation Training, his practical program trains the posterior chain muscles—shoulders, back, butt, and legs—shifting the burden of support to where it belongs: the large muscle groups.

The secret to Foundation Training lies in its simplicity: no gyms, no specialized equipment, no complicated stretches. By incorporating a series of powerful movements into your daily routine, you can move better, breathe better, and get back to using your body the way nature intended.

True to Form shows readers how to integrate Foundation Training successfully into everyday life—from playing with the kids to washing dishes to long hours in the office—transforming ordinary physical actions into active and mindful movements that help to eliminate pain, boost your energy, and strengthen your body. By harnessing the body’s natural movement patterns, you can be fit, healthy, and pain-free for good.

Praise for Foundation Training

“Practicing Foundation Training has been one of the most critical decisions of my surfing career. I had recurring lower back problems when I was younger, but since starting Foundation Training, my flexibility and stability are both the best they have ever been.”—Lakey Peterson, women’s surfing champion

“After thirty tough years of service in the Army Airborne and Rangers and completing over five hundred jumps, I was told by six different spinal surgeons that spinal fusion was my only option. And then I discovered Foundation Training. Now it’s diving, skiing, climbing, and traveling with no restrictions. . . . The kind of retirement I always dreamed of—and almost lost. If only I had this marvelous tool on active duty.”—Colonel William C. Ohl II

“Foundation Training has been one of the most impactful additions to my career. The exercises are easy to learn, difficult to hold, and worth every minute of practice. Foundation Training should be a requirement for everyone.”—Chad Reed, motocross and supercross world champion

“Foundation Training may offer the best of all worlds in terms of building a strong core, eliminating back pain, and promoting optimal health that goes beyond fitness.”—Joseph Mercola, New York Times bestselling author

“Foundation Training exercises are the answer to my many years of research on the negative effects of sitting.”—Dr. Joan Vernikos, former NASA director of life sciences and author of Sitting Kills, Moving Heals
