Mobility Training

So what is mobility, and how is it different from flexibility?

Firstly mobility is active and flexibility is passive! So let’s go a bit deeper, using the understanding that the body adapts in a specific ways depending on the type of forces we used to stimulate the desired adaptive response (cells react differently depending on the type of forces imposed on the body) we know that it’s not enough to simply be able to passively move into the available range of motion but we need the stimulus to create structural adaption to provide us with stability and control in those ranges.

mobility training can take on many forms from joint specific capacity training like the Functional Range Conditioning (FRC) model or dynamic movement systems which focus on self organisation, both of which help with affective load distribution between the different tissues and systems of the body, so any which way you look at it there is always an active component to mobility Which outlines the fundamental difference between mobility and flexibility. flexibility which is achieved via passive external forces may allow you access to a certain range of motion but there will be very little to no stability and control in those ranges.

so in a nutshell, mobility training is expanding your active control over the range of motion your body has available.

Neuro- kinetic training

Neuro- kinetic training is focused on the development of your ability to translate mentally projected instructions into manifested agility and coordination and movement.

so what does this mean for you, well here at Adapt-Ability we work to develop your ability to produce movement through the training of the brain and the body as an insuperable unit, thus promoting synergy between the multiple systems making up the human body.

Further more in leveraging the power of concepts like Neuroplasticity and flow states we to drive up your capacity to learn at an accelerated rate as well as increasing your situational awareness, focus and ability creatively solve problems during the performance of complex movements while executing a task.

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP)

In the modern world it’s happens far to often that we leave the development of our thoughts processes to its own devices, these processes often end up controlling the outcome of the situation, but they reside at a subconscious level and often leaving us feeling powerless to affect change. using NLP we facilitate your journey as you discover more Effective strategies to meet your needs. Whether those needs be, entering a flow state more consistently, developing your big match temperament (BMT) or even finding the motivation to push through to new levels of performance.

here at Adapt-Ability we know that dynamic cognitive conditioning is a fundamental aspect of peak performance as it allows for more flexibility in your approach giving you a greater chance at success. Take into consideration this statement by John Grinder “NLP is an accelerated learning strategy for the detection and utilization of patterns in the world” Join us in modeling excellence and become your best version.

CFC Parkour

Parkour powered by CFC

As a founder of Concrete Foundation Crew (CFC) I stand by the ethos “be strong to be useful” as stated by Georges Hérbert whom we base most our work off. We have been teaching parkour for a decade now and we are the only parkour academy in South Africa. Driven by our passion to share the discipline with as many as possible, so they too can discover the life change practice of overcoming obstacles physical and mentally.

Parkour defined:

Parkour / Freerunning / Art du Deplacement is the primarily non-competitive physical discipline of training to move freely over and through any terrain using only the abilities of the body, principally through running, jumping, climbing and quadrupedal movement. In practice it focuses on developing the fundamental attributes required for such movement, which include functional strength and fitness, balance, spatial awareness, agility, coordination, precision, control and creative vision.

It is a sport that encourages self-improvement on all levels, revealing one’s physical and mental limits while simultaneously offering ways to overcome them. It is a method of training one’s body and mind in order to be as completely functional, effective and liberated as possible in any environment.

The sport aims to build confidence, determination, self-discipline and self-reliance, and responsibility for one’s actions. It encourages humility, respect for others and for one’s environment, self-expression, community spirit, and the importance of play, discovery and safety at all times.

The description above is to describe Parkour as a sport and does not fully describe the art / discipline / philosophy of Parkour as a whole.

Action Acting / Role prep

In the modern world it’s happens far to often that we leave the development of our thoughts processes to its own devices, these processes often end up controlling the outcome of the situation, but they reside at a subconscious level and often leaving us feeling powerless to affect change. using NLP we facilitate your journey as you discover more Effective strategies to meet your needs. Whether those needs be, entering a flow state more consistently, developing your big match temperament (BMT) or even finding the motivation to push through to new levels of performance.

With ‘Action’ growing in popularity as a genre for creative expression on screen, the demand for highly-trained and polished South African acting professionals has dramatically increased as well.

I am a cognitive and movement coach. I help you to prepare professionally and safely for these roles by integrating mind and body tools and techniques. I teach you how to  train your mind and train your body to work together as partners in your success.

This is high-adrenaline work; mentally and physically taxing. Learning to channel your skills and energy effectively is a tool of trade, resulting in a more sustainable career in this high-risk industry.
