Have a question?
Glad you asked! The goal of the GMB method (https://gmb.io/method/) and exercises like locomotion is to ENHANCE your existing training. For example:
- Monkey and Frogger can be used to improve your squat or overhead squat.
- Bent-Arm-Bear helps build on handstand push-up or any vertical pressing.
- Bear, Monkey, or Frogger directly relates to flexibility improvements and therefore can help increase ROM in various movements
- If you play with speed and tempo of these movements, they can be TOUGH and a great push.
There is no right or wrong way to do these! Everyone starts somewhere, and things like current mobility and fitness levels, previous athletic experience, injuries, etc, all impact how individuals move. When you look around the workshop, you will quickly realize no one person moves the same 🙂
I encourage you to step outside of your comfort zone and enjoy the process instead of worrying about how you look doing it. Ultimately, everyone is there to have some FUN and better their health and fitness.
This workshop is open to all levels of fitness. During our three hours together, we will move through various “sections”, such as white-board discussion and reflection, mobility, locomotion and washroom/snack breaks. What that means is that we won’t be doing locomotion for the entire 3 hours as we know that would be a lot!
In saying that, participants will be spending time in positions like the bottom of a squat and will be on wrists quite a bit. If you are someone who is new or coming in with injuries, you are encouraged to take rests whenever needed and even watch/take notes if it is too much. You may also reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org directly if you are still unsure.
Refunds cannot be provided within 7 days of the workshop date.

You are encouraged to see if someone you know may want to jump in to take your spot! Please email email@example.com if an update to participant information needs to be made.
