Many exercise programs are designed with outdated concepts about human gross anatomy and unknown knowledge of the body’s fascia architecture. The techniques and body posture used are usually because they are popular or always done that way. Hence many exercise routines do not demonstrate any functional basis for their effectiveness. Simply put, functional training is training that is specific to the body’s bio-movement that you are attempting to execute.
Evidence has shown that many exercises do not target the true bio-movements of sporting activities in an effective and functional manner. In fact, this type of segmental training creates more myofascial imbalances and creates a platform in the body’s structure more suitable to injury and substandard performance.
The concept of Global Functional Training (GFT) approach with proper posture to address the biotensegrity nature of body architecture is more effective and efficient. GTF prevents imbalances in the body milieu, decreases the environment for pre-disposition for injuries, improves the elastic integrity of the body tissues, and eventually enhances performance.
Its time to move away from “The One Size Fits All” cliché.

This hands on workshop will address the clinical implication (effects on body’s structure) of non-functional exercise techniques for typical body’s strength and condition training programmes. The more functional biotensegral approach (alternative techniques and postures) to replace these conventional types of exercises routines will be highlighted and demonstrated. Practical application of Global Functional Training (GFT) TM to enhance general human movement, sports performance, injury prevention and rehabilitation will be demonstrated.
The workshop will include:
- Discussion on the concepts of functional movements and how they relate to our present understanding of the body’s fascia architecture
- Presentation of clinical cases, which illustrates the effects of poor exercise techniques and posture on the body’s architecture
- Demonstrations of alternative functional and efficient practical techniques with consideration on posture based fascia and biotensegrity concepts to present-day exercise routines used in basic exercise programs
- Making a case for Global Functional Training (GTF) concepts which is based on present knowledge of fascia anatomy and science and biotensegrity concept
- Discuss and demonstrate the concept of “No sit” , “No bar” types exercise methods for upper extremity and trunk
- The myth of CORE exercises will be explained
- Methods on how to substitute sit ups with global functional training in preventing low back injury and pelvic floor dysfunction
