FORSTER STRUCTURE PROGRAM SNEAK PEEK
Honed over the last thirty five years in the results driven world of elite athletics, and every day with clients just like you, we know that the essential foundation of exercise is the FORSTER STRUCTURE PROGRAM© Strength and Flexibility Training. The vital component of fitness is healthy resilient joints and muscles, with increasing flexibility and strength to adapt to life, sport, and aging. Flexibility: During exercise our muscles shorten; therefore, the connective tissue must be stretched to maintain full range of motion and good posture. As we age, connective tissue naturally tightens and begins to lead to functional limitations. These limitations lead to altered mechanics of the joint and eventually joint wearing (Arthritis). It is the one aspect of aging we can reverse. Discover the safest and most effective stretching techniques to help you perform better, prevent injury, improve your range of motion, and aid in your recovery from exercise. In this video you will learn:
- The safest and most effective stretches for each part of your body
- How to incorporate a safe and effective stretching routine into your active lifestyle
- The importance of stretching in developing healthy joints and muscles for life
- How stretching aids in the recovery process and helps to prevent injury

COMPREHENSIVE Structural Analysis by a Physical Therapist
A complete head to toe structural examination is performed to evaluate your strength, flexibility, postural alignment, pronation, and supination foot function, leg length discrepancies and muscular imbalances. We use goniometers to measure joint range of motion, manual muscle testing to determine strength deficiencies, and orthopedic testing to identify functional joint stability. In the process we render a picture of your current state of structural preparedness. This exam is the starting point for all PHASE IV Periodized Strength/Flexibility/Injury Prevention Programs designed to meet your goals for life and sport!
