Show Notes 

  • Blending fitness and rehab, and making the line between them a little blurrier 
  • The usefulness of a structural diagnosis vs assessing where someone is on a spectrum of movement or activity
  • “The System of Readiness” - Qualifying the readiness someone may have for a movement or exercise, not necessarily what is safe or unsafe. How much control can be attained over a new process or a process that hasn’t been performed well in a long time
  • Providing individualized care to support the group setting workouts: educating and progressing self-regulation is key!
  • movement scalability is a game of inches, not an on/off switch. The value of turning “this hurts me” into “this hurts at this weight, in this position, at this time”
  • Devising a program by using the well-researched OPTIMAL tool: http://www.apta.org/OPTIMAL/ 
  • Understand and manipulate the intent of your programming - and progress based on the intent. As a PT with tons of education, don’t undervalue the simple principle that if strength is the goal, regardless of setting, that means LOAD
  • If you’re teaching or guiding movement practices, you absolutely should get your hands dirty kinesthetically and appreciate the difficulties your patients/clients/people are going through
  • The mindset on delivering people away from pain and into an autonomous movement practice
  • Steering people towards a plan of care that doesn’t emphasize medical imaging or structural diagnosis 
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): check out the Beck Institute: https://beckinstitute.org
  • Applying CBT to build therapeutic alliance and implement actionable steps toward a process of improvement
  • Skilled vs unskilled decision making 
  • Working to an over-arching life goal of happiness
  • The value of meditation and realizing that there are inevitable changes in life in order to move forward
  • Check out links to Chris’ youtube videos where he shares some GREAT content, he is on instagram as @movementprof and facebook @Chris Leib
