Create a Functional Movement Practice

A seminar on functional movement for safety and well-being.

Workshop Fee: $45

Whatever your endeavors are, if the demands are greater than your current capacity it is not a matter of if you will get injured but when. Most people have the work ethic and dedication to overcome injuries, but are overwhelmed by the amount of content available on the internet and confused on where to start.

We are going to go through the body joint by joint to make that content as digestible as possible. You will leave with an understanding of how healthy joints can improve complex movements like a squat, what the red flags are to avoid a training injury, and how to know if you are making improvements day-to-day. This class will be informal to ensure you are able to ask any specific questions you may have!

Meet the Instructor: Ryan Esdohr
My journey originally started 13 years ago in Atlanta, Georgia where I moved to work with some of the most sought-after therapists in professional sports. It was also at that time I began to work with athletes in the NFL, NBA, MLB, UFC, PGA, and USATF.

In 2014 I opened Superhuman Lab, a performance center in Urbandale, Iowa that focuses on overcoming injury and training to improve an athlete’s capacity.

Another great passion of mine is learning. I spend a great deal of my time reading and traveling to learn from world class teachers and rehabilitation therapists. I have been involved in the Functional Range Systems community on both the manual therapy side known as Functional Range Release and the mobility training side known as Functional Range Conditioning.

My first mentor was Brian Glotzbach, who introduced me to injury specific bodywork and the world of professional sports. Another great mentor I must mention is physical culture historian and renowned Indian Club instructor Dr. Ed Thomas. Dr. Thomas has been a great influence of mine in restorative training; which includes tools that are over 100 years old, but he has also evolved his own methods along the way.

When not teaching or working with athletes I enjoy spending time with my family, training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, running, rucking, weightlifting, and almost anything that involves human movement.
