About Functional Range Conditioning™

my frc®/ yoga combo and why it works

shauna-tioedited5

Yoga is still a mainstay in my sessions as I personally like to watch athletes move into and out of the positions I am asking of the joints. Observing a player’s movement patterns allows me to use the FRC principles as requried by each individual rather than teaching for the general needs of the group.

Using the principles of the FRC® such as PAILS/RAILS, concentric and eccentric contractions, end-range liftoffs, eccentric neural grooving and more, allows athletes to gain strength at their end-ranges of motion. Athletes with strength at end-ranges have a distinct advantage over those who are merely flexible as they exhibit superior body control.

why athletes & coaches love what I've created

Total Player development

Athletes learn to maximize their movement potential safely, efficiently, and effectively; but it doesn't end there. Through breath work, relaxation, visualization and recovery techniques, I train athletes to perform at their peak under the most challenging performance situations.

joint strength

My FRC®/yoga combination bullet-proofs your joints so that all movement can be executed safely. You can only put up numbers if you stay on the field.

body control

You only get what your nervous system says you can have. If the CNS senses danger, it sends a signal to tighten up and give you less range of motion. I train you at end ranges where CNS learns to feel safe and allows for greater ROM.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

Can you fix my tight hamstrings?

That’s such a loaded question. We can definitely work to identify why you have the sensation of tightness in the hamstring. What we are going to need to address is the tilt of the pelvis and what its orientation is doing to your hip flexors and back extensors.We’re going to need to look at you motor planning and patterning to see if it is the central nervous system that is sending the message that you are not safe with your hammies in a lengthened position. No doubt we are going to work on ALL of these things and get you to moving much more freely!!!

How long does it take to see results?

As with anything else, you have to do the work to get results. Athletes who work with me in a weekly session and perform the recommended homework see results pretty quickly. I like to re-assess after about 6 weeks to document improvement, address any new issues that may have surfaced, and move forward with an up-to-date game plan.

How often should one participate in a session?

One of the reasons I began to develop my current movement style came about when I began working with a professional baseball team. Until then, I had no understanding of the extreme demands of an elite athletic schedule. I design my sessions to be effective even if I am only able to see the athletes once a week. (In off-season I like to get them in twice a week.) I have a YouTube Channel with classes for athletes that cannot get to me but would like to get some movement in on their own. There are also some pre-game warm-up sessions there that can be used before any game or practice. Click on the YouTube icon in the upper right corner to go to my channel.

When is the ideal time to schedule a session?

It is perfect for an active recovery day or immediately following a heavy lifting day/rotation.

What are the benefits of working with you?

My system is known for developing mobility, strengthening progressive articular (joint) tissue, and improving neurological function for body awareness and control. Practitioners enjoy joint health, lack of injury, and neuromuscular longevity. They also experience better performance under pressure as a result of breathing and mental preparation techniques.
