HEAPING PLATE OF GAINS from Certified HBS practitioner @fpshannonhegarty Results from @ryan.piercy first photo is June 16th the second is November 20th. This is what happens when you eat the whole plate of FP and asks for more.
“Growing up I played all sports all the time. Some at a representative level, some not. In my mid 20's I joined the military. After a plethora of parachute jumps and carrying extreme weight over extreme distance my body began to give way. This came in the form of anterior compression of T11 and deterioration between C5/6. My pain scale was 2-3/10 24 hrs a day and would frequently shoot to 7/8 leaving me incapacitated for sometimes weeks at a time. After 5 months of FP with @fpshannonhegarty, my pain scale is ZERO 99% of the time. Occasionally I'll have some dehydration and pain might go to a 2/3. The phenomenal (literally) thing is that the pain dissolves on it's own with no input from me. My gait cycle now is my pain management system. The left pic is 81kg, the right pic is 76kg. To quantify my progress I have been sprinting and measuring my max speed. I have increased my top speed from 28.1km/h to 35.1km/h.”
This guy is as dedicated as they get and this is what happens when you commit to @functionalpatterns. Thank you bro ✊🏽
PAIN FREE MOVEMENT GAINS from Human Biomechanics Specialist @fp_joaopedro
When you make a real commitment to functionality and the craft actually accounts for variables that exist in reality, amazing things happen. We are the only system routinely showcasing results like these. All these results involve no stretching or strength work in the way people have been taught. It's a new system that is now being seen as the standard on human movement. People are flooding in to see if this is all hype. When they arrive at a course and see what the material is, they realize no hype can match the level of our training. We are the real deal and aren't shy about saying it. Others know they get lucky when their methods work, which is why no one outside of us touts being the best. If they do, it's an old school marketing tactic they bring on absent of results to prove them right.
The results end all debates because no one outside of FP can get them like this. #fpisthestandard because it actually makes changes you can see. We aren't placebo masters. We change structure for the better. We use science as a tool and it shows in the gait cycle change you see on this video.
LEARNING TO RUN PAIN FREE WITH CEREBRAL PALSY Excellent work from HBS practitioner @fp.russv Brian’s Gait Results @functionalpatterns 1st Video - September 24th 2019 2nd Video - September 2nd 2020 3rd Video - October 15th 2020
Client with CP Gait Results
“Functional Patterns has been an amazing program over the past year, better than the many months and years of Physical Therapy. You’re told to walk before you can run and I thought PT was all of that, but I truly didn’t learn to run until I found FP.
Everything has improved for me. I no longer get shooting pains in my knee that come and go at random, for days or weeks, I can keep up with my peers during activities and I can even out last them on a walk on the worst terrain. Most importantly I’m more confident, I know it’s not the main goal of FP, but walking tall makes you feel tall and that’s been an amazing plus to have in my day to day life.”
FROM DISC HERNIATION TO PAIN FREE SPRINTING Great work here from HBS practitioner @fp.jamesruport helping his client take the guess work out of taking care of his body.
Here is some progress from my client using functional patterns. He suffered a disk injury after 20 years of compensation from a previous back injury. . This was a very humbling and I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to help and learn more about biomechanics. . A couple of key takeaways. 1. Injury prevention is a much easier route than rehabilitation. 2. Consistent stress will be needed even after you are out of pain.
Student testimonial @dibettencourt: "All my childhood and youth I practiced sport, I played 12 years of rugby with weight training as the basis of physical training, I played football with friends every week, I did several years of surfing, I didn't spend a day without doing sports, until one day at the age of 23 i got injured in the l5 s1, since then i had to stop all sport, it also started to hurt both my shoulders and i went from doctor to doctor for 5 years until i was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, ankylosing spondylitis. I tried everything traditional and alternative medicine had to offer. 6 more years of pain have passed being treated according to the protocols of this disease (immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory drugs), with mobility exercises. At the age of 35, I was told that, after all I did, I didn't have that desease, but rather chronic pain, I started taking drugs for this purpose, Tramadol + lyric. In 2018 I discovered the functional Patterns, as I evolved in this training method, I was taking less medication and in the last 7 months, I totally stop taken any medication and I can say that, now at 39, I am practically without any pain. I haven't felt so good in over 16 years. @fpbrasil and @fp_spain thank you for the help and being part in the process 👊🏼"
REDUCING LIFELONG IMBALANCES from HBS practitioner @fp.piestany Teach your body to move pain free with Functional Patterns.
This is 1 year progress with my die hard client @dr.alenabohmerova with idiopathic scoliosis. Left video: August 2019. Right video: September 2020. Left Xray: September 2019. Right Xray: July 2020. We’ve managed to decrease Cobb angle from 28 to 24 degrees and also increase volume capacity in ribcage (especially left side).
This is Alena’s testimonial: “I was diagnosed with AIS (adolescent idiophatic scoliosis) in my 13. I went through whole process of treatment, rehabilitation, a lot of different exercising methods, plastic brace included, until I reached 18. The curve was stable, but nothing really changed with muscles and the way how I moved. It was not enough for me. After my MD degree, I´ve decided to do a professional research of treatment of scoliosis, so I specialized in rehabilitation medicine. I have tried a lot of methods on myself also and now I can tell that FP is more than a training method. It actually changes the motor programs at the level of CNS (central nervous system). Now after 1 year, I can finally feel tonic abdominal muscles activity, I have my right shoulder again and I can do something with right scapula. Walking and running is completely different movement for me right now. And I know there is a lot of work in front of me. I am so thankful that Peter has started working with me, for his approach, patience, perfect skills and indispensable creativity during the sessions.”
5 YEARS OF BACK PROBLEMS 80% REDUCED IN 2 SESSIONS from HBS practitioner @fp__chris
Mikhail / July 2020
❌ Before- Constant lower back pain, right shoulder pain shooting into his neck. Mikhail works long hours as a tattoo artist in NYC, spending most of his day sitting in the same position
✅ After- 80% pain reduction in both lower back and shoulder, this was done over two sessions we were able to squeeze into our tight schedules before I left NYC.
Client Testimonial- “Christopher is amazing trainer. Ive had back problems past 5 years from my sitting job, couldn’t sit straight in the chair for past year and a half. It took 2 sessions to make me feel much better. He always follows up how i feel and focuses on the areas that needed attention during the training. I really appreciate it and its best training for your body ive ever tried.”
STRUCTURE GAINS from HBS practitioner @fpshannonhegarty Understanding and using mechanistic systems to resolve imbalances!
This week four years ago I attended the Human Foundations course in Sydney. My journey into @functionalpatterns has gone beyond any expectation I could have in a training system. I don’t know if anyone has ever had the pleasure of feeling their body regenerating but it is the most surreal experience to date. Skin, fascia, my nails and teeth feel healthier and stronger. Scar tissue from surgeries and injuries adjusting and releasing to the point there is barely any left. Walking and running more comfortably than I ever have in my life I straight up feel like I’m 20. I’ve also never been more uncomfortable than I ever have in my life. Facing up to the reality that my behaviours and dysfunctional way of thinking and life application are the direct cause of degeneration and health. It’s been emotional. Biomechanics and nature are king. There is no measure of thanks I could ever give to @naudiaguilar and those who contribute to FP for this gift. Regeneration for the win. FP all day and every day ✊🏽
From constant pains to movement gains. People of all ages and levels getting results utilizing Functional Patterns. HBS practitioner @fp_alex.pennington and his client yet again with the amazing results here. When you take people who have clear talent and give them the tools, they do the "impossible"!
WATCH TILL THE END. We are now running! Since my last post on my client Mike’s gait, we have been putting in consistent work. In the first video Mike struggled a lot with just walking. He was in constant pain and his body jarred in every step. The second video he has much improved stability and a large reduction in his overall daily pain. •
Now Mike is able to not only walk without pain, he can now run. Something he has been unable to do in a decade. After hip replacements and knee surgeries, his doctors said he would never run again. Now look where we are. All training done here with @functionalpatterns techniques
PAIN FREE WEIGHTLOSS AND STRUCTURE GAINS from HBS Practitioner @fpsebcoello
Client Lio's strucutral and weight loss progress (swipe ⬅️ for testimonial)
Left: 109.5 Kg, left rib cage and shoulder compression, anterior pelvic tilt and shift, thoracic kyphosis, longitudinal compression, shoulder stiffness and pain pressing overhead.
Right: 94kg, decreased fat mass and increased muscle mass. Significantly reduced: shoulder compression, anterior pelvic shift and tilt, pain pressing overhead and thoracic kyphosis.
Since day 1 Lio showed a strong committment to improving his biomechanics and state of health. His ability to adapt and change his behaviours towards habits that could facilitate this change were clear from the start. He is an example to all ex athletes that daily bodily pain and discomfort does not need to be the norm. I am keen to continue seeing Lio's progress in his training.
🇬🇧 [Femoroacetabular Impingement] Before January 2020: ❌scapular winging❌unstable lumbar spine and hip❌compressed spine and ribcage❌no arm and lateral lines❌limited reciprocity and tensegrity❌chronic pain After August 2020: ✅Improved scapula positioning✅Improved lumbar spine and hip stability✅decompressed spine and ribcage✅arm and lateral lines potentiation✅Improved reciprocity and tensegrity✅pain free @ismaele_b testimony:"I am a 15-years-old dancer and I had various physical problems in various parts of the during my growth, especially in the hips. Working incorrectly with pain caused me severe inflammation and injury to both acetabular labrum. The doctors told me about a possible operation and stop dancing. I tried various training and rehab methods but I never received the results that functional patterns gave me. Now I am pain free and thanks to Davide and @functionalpatterns I improved my whole body, my way of thinking and my movement."
