1. What is Movement Pathways?

The course teaches sequences of exercises to target injury prone areas and the critical thought process for making our old injury areas more resilient.
Who is Movement Pathways for?
If you are a previous or current MAT™ client, this is a NO-Brainer! The class was inspired by you!
The Exercise Sequences of Movement Pathways can benefit anyone coming off of an injury rehabilitation treatment plan.
People who love exercise and want a deeper connection with their training or are curious about experimenting with different types of exercise.
An active individual who wants to prevent injury in sports or running.
Those who know that their joints aren't responding to stretching or that feel stretching is unfavorable to their body
When should we use these exercises?
These Exercise Sequences have multiple uses but are best suited for Warm-ups and Active Recovery.
Movement Pathways can be used everyday if needed. It can be used wherever you workout.
You can include these exercises as effective bodyweight exercises in a circuit of exercises (strength training, HIIT, LIIT, after cardio/walk).
They can also be used during the work day to combat the day’s stress load.
Why are these exercise sequences better than what is available online?
There are many reasons! However, the most obvious reason they are special is because of their specificity to joint health. Exercise specificity is lacking in almost all injury rehabilitation programs and impossible to achieve with free videos on the internet.
This program addresses the under appreciated science of the nervous system and how the muscle system is wired to keep you safe and moving.
The human body is complex. People chase after tightness, pain, and injury cycles for years. Despite this universally understood concept, exercise and warm-ups are rarely customized to better suit a complex system facing a weak link like your old injury.
