As someone who has ran pretty consistently for the past six years, when I was told in order to improve my hip mobility I would need to take a yellow light on running, I was, needless to say, a little hesitant. Nevertheless, I find it extremely important to take care of my body and do what is best for my long-term health. So I managed to not run one single time in the two and a half months I worked out with Fitness Lying Down and worked on improving my hip mobility. However, I noticed way more than just my hip mobility improving while participating in group training sessions at Fitness Lying Down. I noticed changes in myself and in my abilities that I had not seen happen in the six years I had spent running. Having been screened again and given the green light to run, I have resumed running, but I am definitely still continuing my work with Fitness Lying Down. After only two and a half months I am so happy with the results I have worked for, I cannot wait to see what I am able to achieve in the following months! Thank you Cory and Anthony!!

Never Run Again!
10 years ago I suffered from a 3/4″ tear in my left Achilles by playing basketball. I did physical therapy to handle the recovery, but that was it. In February 2014, I completely tore my left Achilles playing basketball, again. I had surgery to repair the Achilles, completed physical therapy, and am now working with Anthony and Cory at Fitness Lying Down to fix my movement issues and strengthen my repair to ensure that I have balance across all of my body – and I am loving it! Plus, their unique style truly is helping me become more mobile in my hips and shoulders. I feel more well-rounded in my fitness thanks to their guidance and coaching!
A Note From Fitness Lying Down:
We took Brian through The Functional Movement Screen at the end of August, 2014. As of November 2014, Brian has increased his score of 10 to 14! What does this mean? Initially Brian scored a 1 on his hip mobility screen, we would call that a dysfunctional movement pattern (maybe the culprit of the Achilles problem!). With some corrective exercises and hard work, he now is enjoying fully functional mobility in his hips with a score of 2 out of 3! In addition, we have seen improvements in his deep squat, hurdle step, and rotary stability scores, too!

Fitness Lying Down will change the way you think about movement and exercise! Instead of ignoring underlying problems, creating pain and damage, they screen clients to reveal movement dysfunctions and design a program that builds a more stable person from the foundation up. I highly recommend their exercise programs for my clients who need reinforcement of their physical therapy gains to remain pain-free.
