It’s that time of year where we’re thinking of getting back into shape again.

But…before you begin to build lean muscle through exercise, it is important to make sure key core muscles are balanced, mobile and strong. If they are not, everyone from body builders to those who are more sedentary are predisposed to disk herniations or muscle and ligament injuries.

You cannot build function on dysfunction.

FMS (Functional Movement Systems) is a method of personal training that addresses this common problem. In this group, we will learn self-myofascial release, stretching and strengthening. This will improve your mobility and core strength. With a more “functional” frame, you may move into more resistance or weight training with better safety. We will also discuss our progress and set personal goals.

Reboot Your Core will take place at Reboot Center on the following Saturdays @ 9:30AM: 

March 9th: Feet & Legs

  • Self-myofascial release through rolling and stretching feet, calves, IT bands, and quads

March 23: Pelvic Stabilization

  • Assess and strengthen pelvic floor
  • Assess and correct abdominal and psoas muscle imbalances

April 6: Correcting “Dead-Butt Syndrome”

  • Release and stretch piriformis
  • Assess and strengthen gluteal muscles

April 20: Back & Upper Extremities

  • Release and stretch erectors, pecs, rhomboids and traps
  • Stabilize back and shoulders through resistance

To register, call (360) 331-2464 to reserve your spot. Limited space is available.

About the facilitator:

Dr. Ruth Dana, ND learned about FMS through her active participation in Sports Medicine Club at Bastyr University. After a roller skating injury, she worked closely with an expert in the field, applying this method to her exercise routine daily to get back to enjoying her favorite sport with greater safety. She is passionate about sharing FMS with those who are in pain or wish to build lean muscle safely.
