Sebastian's Movement Philosophy
I believe everyone should be reaching toward their personal next level. Whatever current ability you have, let’s work to expand and deepen that. I also believe that fitness programs and trainers should train their clients as full beings, not as machines made of muscles and bones.
That said, functional fitness can get very dynamic and very advanced, and be a powerful tool to open up the world for us. If you want to climb a mountain, learn a sport or dance style, or play with your kids for years to come, you should be able to do it. Functional fitness training allows you to be versatile enough to keep doing these things.
Over the years I’ve learned that training cannot be a linear process. It is cyclical and shifts based on one’s life, needs, injuries, desires and experiences. Having ups and downs and side-steps is completely normal and not a reason to quit training or feel like a failure. Instead, these changing moments are times to reflect and recoup. Trainers need to be prepared to help clients through these times and be ready to change too.
