Mobility WOD Performance Workshop

Mobility WOD Performance Workshop

This one-day,  in-person course relies heavily on the principles of breathing, bracing, and body positions as described in Dr. Kelly Starrett’s book, Becoming a Supple Leopard, and the M|WOD 101 online course. Many coaches and athletes struggle to take some of the principles in the book or from the M|WOD 101 course and apply them to lifting with big loads. Many coaches and athletes also have difficulty understanding exactly where to look first when trying to solve a problem for an athlete and many times jump to different mobility exercises without first breaking down any issues in technique, set up, and bracing. Unfortunately, athletes many times are only concerned with finishing the task and not the quality of the task until it blows up in their face. Load is a very instructive tool and allows the coach to see errors as they develop that may not be apparent during bodyweight or lower weights while the athlete is warming up.

Cost: $349

CrossFit Mobility Trainer Course - Bismarck, ND - October 10, 2015

Course Description:
This one-day seminar is a hands-on, movement-theory-based workshop in which coaches and athletes are exposed to the principles of Kelly Starrett's movement and mobility method of resolving pain, preventing injury, and optimizing athletic performance.

Performance can be brought to an abrupt halt by dysfunctional movement patters and underlying restrictions in mobility. Oftentimes, the factors that impede performance are invisible to not only the untrained eye, but also to the majority of athletes and coaches. This course exposes attendees to a systematic approach to making these factors visible. This course illuminates common movement errors that can cause injury and reduce an athlete’s speed, power, endurance and strength. This course teaches anyone – be it a weekend warrior, professional athlete, or someone wanting to be free from current restrictions – how to best maintain natural function and harness genetic potential.

Credentials and Requirements
To receive a Mobility Trainer Certificate, one must:

  1. Hold a valid and current CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Certificate (or a CF-L3); and
  2. Attend and participate in all parts of the Mobility Trainer Course.

If you do not meet these requirements, you are issued a Certificate of Attendance.
