What are Functional Patterns? Unlike any other point in human history, the greatest health crisis we face as a species is the imbalances that exist within our modern society and our misalignment with nature. This has had a substantial impact on our movement capabilities as we’ve shifted our daily practices from their roots in natural processes towards sociocultural processes. How do we find balance in today’s world with all the dys-biosis that surrounds us?
It’s simple, our adaptability to the natural environment determines our health. The better balanced we are with nature, the longer and stronger we live. For humans, this means bringing us back to the beneficial aspects of our evolutionary blueprint that made us healthy to begin with.
WHAT'S THE BLUEPRINT? There’s an evolutionary blueprint to all organisms, and Functional Patterns has been cracking the code in human movement for nearly 15 years. Resulting from tens of thousands of hours in testing, we have pioneered the FP methodology, syncing the physics of our natural environment to our health better than any other system out there. Our conclusion has been to train humans according to their biological movement characteristics:
Standing, Walking, Running, and Throwing — The “FP Big 4”.
