APPLIED FUNCTIONAL SCIENCE
Learn to move better, more functional, and with lower incidence of pain and injury.
Doing an exercise that you're not sure is correct? AFS techniques can help you find the correct muscles to use.
Always feeling pain in your back after a round of golf? AFS techniques can help identify the probable suspects and provide corrections.
Looking to start a new fitness venture like running races? AFS techniques can make sure you're body is optimized for the task at hand to reduce injury risk.
And many more...
"Applied Functional Science® (AFS) is the common thread to all that Gray Institute® delivers. AFS is based on scientific truth – not theory – that strategically links to the most effective and efficient techniques for the individual. AFS influences and enhances the entire Movement Industry – performance / training and conditioning, prevention, and rehabilitation.
AFS is the convergence of sciences that allows for purposeful movement. The convergence of Physical Sciences (the world we live in), Biological Sciences (the miracle of the human body), and Behavioral Sciences (the power of the mind and spirit) is the DNA of AFS. For the Physical Sciences, the truths of Environment, Gravity, Ground Reaction Force, Mass, and Momentum are considered and leveraged. For the Biological Sciences, the truths of Motion, Reaction, Proprioceptors, Muscles, Joints, Task, Specificity, and Mobility / Stability are considered and leveraged. For the Behavioral Sciences, the truths of Success, Encouragement, Locus of Control, Empowerment, Relevance, and Significance are considered and leveraged.
The above truths are the foundation and the starting point to AFS’s Principle-Strategy-Technique Process. Principles are the why of movement. Strategies are the how of movement. Techniques are the what of movement. AFS is the answer to these questions so that the best, most effective and efficient movements can be applied to any and all individuals based on specific needs, wants, and goals."
As a Fellow of Applied Functional Science, I aim to share this knowledge and help individuals overcome tasks that have been seemingly impossible. It is the backbone of everything I do, and it's what makes everyone's experience unique. The ultimate goal is to find where you have success, and then build upon that foundation to create more throughout the whole body. Whether that be pain reduction, improvement to flexibility, task specific improvements, nothing is off limits.
