with the 10-week online course


Functional Patterns is a fitness training program unlike any other. Other programs focus on short-term improvements in muscle tone or size. What’s worse is that they also cause pain and possibly irreversible damage. Our program is scientifically based and focused on overall health and the results are long-lasting.


through the use of myofascial manipulation and corrective exercise.


to allow your muscles to work for you and not against you.


by conditioning your movement and muscle symmetry.


in a way that simultaneously improves function and performance.


with increased economy of motion helping you feel great.


as relief from muscle tension and joint pain get resolved at its root.


"I was diagnosed with Scoliosis at 8 years old. Since then I have tried lots of different exercising methods and none of them worked. Later I found Functional Patterns and I am grateful for the results so far"


"Since I started using Functional Patterns, my mobility and posture has significantly changed, I can do things that I couldn't do before and my standing feels way more comfortable"


"After chronic pain for a decade I can now move through life using vital mental capacity and attention on things that are important to me rather than devoting myself to managing my pain. The knowledge that I can move with strength, power and agility to protect myself gives me a sense of relaxation that I cannot explain"


Kelly has been suffering from back and neck pain for a long time. The doctors said it was because of her scoliosis and that there was nothing they could do about it. Just learn to live with it was their advice. Her complaints disappear in 2 months. By tackling the scoliosis, the patient no longer has any complaints at the moment. And is pain free!

"I suffered from multiple ankle strains and shoulder dislocations when attempting to exercise and discomfort in my feet when standing. I now train 3 times a week with no pain or discomfort after doing physical activities."


“I have early degenerative hip disease which causes pain and discomfort in my right hip and often leads to pain elsewhere in my body,like my back, knees and feet. Surgeon recommendation was a full hip replacement, not something I was prepared to consider at my age. Everything is moving better and I have more confidence that physically it’s all holding together.


“I had a herniated lumbar disc, causing numbness in one leg with debilitating sciatica. I saw care from chiropractors, physical therapists, massage, acupuncture, various prescriptions, and an epidural steroid injection. I could still barely walk due to the pain, and was referred for surgery. FP was my last-ditch effort and it's working! The tingling is gone, sciatic pain is hardly an ache, I no longer rely on medicine, and I'm regaining confidence in my body.”


I feel like I am living in a completely different body to what I was back in 2019. Now that I have experienced what it feels like to decompress my joints, I realize how compressed I was from many years of traditional training. The fact that I was exercising at a squat rack most days and doing 3-4 yoga classes a week, but still got constant back pain had me really confused.

Structure is becoming more solid as time goes on and I’m down to 177 lbs, the lightest I’ve been since teenage years. Just by focussing on moving better and following FP protocols, the fat is shredding off.

Do i need to be fit and healthy to do this course?

No, we have all kinds of people getting great results with our course. We do however suggest that if you have any pre-exisiting issues that you do seek medical advice before commencing the course.

I am older, out of shape. Is this really for me?

The simple answer is that if you are human, FP is for you. We focus on getting you to optimize the precision of the First Four movement patterns, i.e. standing, walking, running, and throwing. No matter who you are or what your age or fitness level is, you will be doing these things as long as you are alive. So, doesn’t it make sense to learn how to do them well so that you can avoid injuries and live a life free of pain? The 10-week course is precisely the program that teaches you how to do this in easy, bite size pieces.

Is the 10 week course appropriate for my child / children?

In short, yes, children are humans and FP is designed for all humans. However, if the child in question is very young they may not be able to fully grasp and execute the exercises correctly to get the right benefit. We find that the best way to influence your child is firstly by leading by example. For younger children it may be best for you to start working on yourself and once you have a decent understanding you can start incorporating some of the exercises into your child’s routine, whether that’s into their current training or mix it up with some play. For older children if may be fine to do the 10 week course on their own, or together with you. Many of our customers have also found it beneficial to hire a FP Practitioner alongside doing the 10 week online program to ensure they’re getting it right. Children are quick to pick things up in general and they haven't spent (as many) years of ingraining the same dysfunctional patterns as adults. Furthermore, what a wonderful way for you to spend some quality time together as a family!

Is there any specialist equipment required?

The tools required to complete the 10-week course include:

  • Assorted balls for myofascial release
  • Dumbbells
  • Thera-Cane
  • PVC Pipe (foam roller progression)
  • Varied Resistance Bands

Many of the tools can be substituted with other items if needed. Feel free to get creative. You can also join our Facebook group Functional Patterns Doers to see how others have gone about it.

How much time do I need to allocate to the course?

We recommend spending 1 hour per training session working on the 10 week course. It is advised to train using the course material at least 3-5 times per week. You are welcome to train daily if your body is up to it, but you are also encouraged to take time to recover as needed

Are you saying I should never go to a gym again or quit my current regime?

The beauty of FP programs is that they can be combined with any other exercise regimen, including workouts at the gym. So, yes - we’re all for you getting a good sweat session so long as you are employing good mechanics and movement that will not grind away at your joints and tendons. And doing our courses will teach how to do that and also boost your performance in all kinds of other physical activities you take on. But first and foremost, if you want to stay active in nature, in the gym, and in life in general you want to make sure you are taking the correct steps to ensure your body functions properly when moving.

Will this make me stronger, fitter, and leaner?

At FP, we like to say that fitness is the result of good movement. Meaning if you can move properly and develop skills such as actively engaged standing posture and good mechanics for walking, running, and throwing then this will carry over to allow you to develop real, explosive strength and stamina in natural ways that will apply to everything you do in life. With consistent practice, you will definitely become fit, strong, and lean, especially if proper nutrition is part of your health and fitness regimen.

Does FP build muscle?

Most definitely. Your ability to build and maintain muscle is directly related to how well you move. In order to move well, your muscles need to function in an integrated fashion with one another. By learning proper mechanics, you will engrain functional patterns of movement into your body so that you can build and maintain muscles that serve specific purpose that relates to your biological blueprint as a human, especially when you stand, walk, run, and throw – which you will do your entire life!

Can I lose weight with this course?

Have you ever wondered why you gained the extra body fat in the first place? Here at FP, we believe that the reason people pack on pounds or kilos is because you’re not moving well to begin with. If you are a well-functioning and moving individual to start with then your body would crave the right amount of nutritious foods instead of wanting to overload on whatever types of foods you can get a hold of. This is why we think that how you move may be more important that what you eat in order to drop body fat. Put simply, if your body isn’t primed to move well in order to help metabolize and make use of what you eat your body will have to work overtime to process food. By bettering your biomechanics and learning how to move functionally while also eating nutritious foods, you will have a better chance of dropping body fat and keeping it off. Not to mention that moving correctly and efficiently enables you to exercise more and with less risk of pains and injury.

Can this help me recover from an injury?

Most injuries stem from bad biomechanics that result in imbalances and weaknesses in certain parts of the body which then leads to restricted range of motion and mobility. When one part atrophies and becomes underused, another part compensates for it and becomes overused. This imbalance leaves you more prone to injury. This FP course will give you an understanding of proper mechanics so that you can address the root cause of your issues and re-program your body to engage and bring unused parts online to function in a more balanced way. The effectiveness of our programs explains why physical therapists see the value of our program and recommend it to their patients all the time.

Is there an APP?

Our course plaform can be saved to any device and used like a native app. This ensures a smooth and frictionless course experience.
