ABOUT FP

Functional Patterns is a methodology that focuses on making bio-mechanical adaptations relevant to human physiology which in turn will create a more sustainable body that has improved capability of responding to stressors in it's environment. It is a very foundational yet radically inventive approach to training the human body.

Our first level of priority is a highly corrective process in which we address posture to establish it as a stable base for movement. The ideal postural position allows resistance to gravity and optimal mechanics in relation to force and levers. This phase alone merits FP uniquely "therapeutic" as it directly translates to a more stable spine and buffers against low back pain, neck pain, etc. Once accomplished, static positions and basic exercises unique to FP will be introduced to "re-tension" key muscles that are dormant in the population especially during certain contexts such as walking.

Finally, we move to more dynamic movements that serve to neurologically and physiologically connect long chains/slings of muscles that are designed to function together such as the AOS (anterior oblique sling) and POS(posterior oblique sling). This is critical because these are the same chains and slings that become disconnected through bad movement strategies and postural habits.

By first prioritizing postural distortions and establishing it as a base for movement, the body then can intrinsically be wired to be resistant to gravity & transfer force in the most leveraged fashion, ensuring a long life of pain free movement.
