MOVEMENT COACHING

The Body Genius Institute is proud to offer one of the most advanced Movement Coaching programs in Australia. Lead by the expertise of Movement Coach Aaron Taylor, this three month training program will facilitate your learning and help you to achieve your goals.

‘There is an athlete in every body.’

Your journey will begin with a comprehensive Athletic Screen that assesses your ability to perform functional movement patterns and will provide you with an individual risk profile. The Athletic Screen is powered by the scientific backing of the Move2Perform software, which is now used throughout the world by professional teams in a wide range of sporting activities.

‘If you’re not assessing, you’re guessing!’

OUR WORLD-CLASS ATHLETIC SCREEN INCLUDES

  • FMS®
  • Upper Quarter Y-Balance Testing ®
  • Lower Quarter YBT ®
  • Ankle range of motion testing
  • Functional Hop Testing

From this information an individual risk profile is generated to determine how well your body is moving and to determine your level of injury risk with exercise. This software can even compare your scores against other people of the same age, same gender, participating in the same activity or sport, at the same skill level. How exciting is that!

TAKE SPORTS QUESTIONNAIRE

All of our clients fully understand the importance of quality movement and functional ability in relation to both preventing injury and enhancing performance.

Coaches who refer clients to us understand the role this type of testing plays in keeping their athletes participating.

Orthopedic surgeons who refer clients to us have the confidence that our skilled team will not only clear the client from a clinical perspective, but also from a functional perspective as well. They know that their reputation as a surgeon is measured by quality of outcome and that this can be significantly improved through this type of testing and corrective exercise.

Other health professionals refer clients to the Body Genius Institute for risk profiles. They understand that clearing a client clinically is not that same as clearing them functionally. This additional step is critical in the safe return to sport or activity.

Clients who train with our Movement Coaches have the confidence that their individualized training program is both safe and effective.

THE BODY GENIUS INSTITUTE – PERFORMANCE PYRAMID

Performance Pyramid

Thousands of Body Genius (BG) clients have benefitted from the Performance Pyramid and the simple concepts it represents. Each practitioner on the BG team has a copy of the pyramid on their desk and clients are walked through the basic strategy and where they sit within the pyramid. We feel as practitioners that it’s important to continually remind ourselves of the importance of satisfying each level of the pyramid before moving on to higher levels.

By completing the Athletic Screen as part of your Movement Coaching journey, you will be ensuring that you have satisfied the ‘Mobility / Flexibility’ and ‘Stability’ levels of the pyramid. This is a crucial step before moving upwards to the higher levels of fitness, strength, power and sport.

Not only does this system of analysis and treatment fast-track successful outcomes, it also provides solutions that create lasting results!

CORRECTIVE EXERCISES

Our Movement Coaches are exceptional at determining which corrective exercise(s) will enhance your movement. Of course the first step is to identify which patterns of movement are challenging for your individual body and this is accomplished through the Athletic Screen.

The second step is to determine which exercise has the greatest potential to improve the chosen movement pattern. For instance, if the Athletic Screen reveals that your overhead squat pattern is dysfunctional then a series of corrective exercises can be performed and evaluated.

Many people believe that stretching and mobility work takes time, often weeks or even months before any significant results are achieved. Our experience at the Body Genius Institute would lead us to believe that when the right corrective exercise is implemented it will yield results in just minutes. In our opinion, if the corrective exercise does not provide significant improvements in five minutes or less than it’s highly unlikely to provide benefits, even after weeks of diligent effort.

The process involves selecting a dysfunctional movement pattern and then testing corrective exercises to see which one has an immediate effect on improving that functional pattern of movement. When changes happen this rapidly, motivation soars!

The process is highly rewarding for both the client and our Movement Coaches alike.

Happiness leads to success!

It’s so important that you enjoy your training and that you learn how your body responds to various forms of exercise and movement. When movement is both free and integrated, energy flows freely and strongly within your body.

Movement in all its variety and forms is an expression of life. And through movement we learn to express our inner selves and to establish a connection between mind, body and spirit. To be present within our body is a form of awareness and it demonstrates self-love and kindness.

At the heart of our Movement Coaching program is a search for the wisdom we all have within us.

‘There is a Genius within every Body.’

As this genius comes to life and we learn to express its power, we begin to uncover our own personal athleticism.

‘There is an athlete in every body.’

At the Body Genius Institute we see Movement Coaching as a mentorship, an opportunity to build strong relationships with our clients and to facilitate their learning and understanding of everything that enhances movement and performance.
