LIFE WITHOUT LIMITS:
THE BENEFITS OF TRAINING LIKE A GYMNAST
We laugh in disbelief when we watch Olympic gymnasts throw themselves into complicated inverted positions. They are so lean, but so strong at the same time. And the flexibility they have seems to be super-human. But the secret to their incredible ability is much more simple than you might think.
AND GUESS WHAT?
If you trained the way a gymnast trained, you’d get the same results.
Think about that. It seems obvious doesn’t it? But I bet it’s not something you ever thought of doing.
And we’re not talking about you becoming an Olympic level gymnast, but you will see changes to your body that will be life-changing – that will make a huge impact to all aspects of your life.
YOU’LL BUILD REAL CONFIDENCE IN YOUR BODY.
The confidence to say yes when your friend asks you to try rock climbing or surfing for the first time.
The ability to move freely, without pain, so you can enjoy life without limiting yourself because of fear of failure or injury.
MOST OF US WANT TO WORK HARD TO ACHIEVE THIS BUT WE DON’t KNOW WHERE TO START.
Gymnasts perform some of the most incredible feats known to humans. Reaching an elite level requires thousands of hours of practice and building capacity. But it’s the way they build capacity that can be most useful to you and me.
Every one of your joints has a natural range of movement. Your shoulder, for example, can extend, flex, abduct, adduct, rotate, and more – it is essentially a 360 degree joint. If you safely and gradually build strength in every range of motion, you are doing what gymnasts do. These are the basics of those wild and hard-to-believe moves.
And through this process you’ll get strong, really strong. You’ll build lean muscle. Your body will look leaner and more defined.
Even a couple of hours of weekly training in the gymnastic style you’ll see these results and start to achieve things you never thought possible in your own world.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?
Here’s what some of our members at Falsegrip have achieved:
- A 29-year-old who had a severe neck injury has now returned to 100% of his old capacity
- A member in his 50s can enjoy his kiteboarding for hours longer than his mates
- An Olympic skier has extended her career into her 30s
It’s not magic. It’s tried and tested. Gymnasts have done it for decades. When you strengthen each joint in its full range of movement, you give your muscles and your subconscious the confidence to try things that perhaps once seemed out of reach for you.
