what is Foundation Training?
Foundation Training is an exercise and movement training program created by US back pain and movement expert Dr Eric Goodman. It consists of a series of easy to learn yet challenging bodyweight exercises.
Foundation Training improves posture, optimises performance and addresses the root causes of back, hip, neck and shoulder pain.
This approach is new to the UK and unlike any other.
'The Natural Form program has eliminated my back pain and also been pivotal in allowing me to engage with life more actively.'

How it works
Foundation Training corrects faulty movement patterns and postural imbalances in the body. The movements and postures retrain the body to utilize the power of the posterior muscle chain. When this muscle chain is reactivated and strengthened it can bring significant healing.
Thousands of people worldwide have discovered remarkable healing through Foundation Training.
“My back doesn't just feel better, it feels strong. These exercises let you move with some real confidence. Everybody with a bad back should do these exercises." - Jeff Bridges Actor
