Exos Leads “New” Functional Performance Focus
February 1, 2022
Exos recently made the news for its forward-thinking functional performance leadership within the fitness industry. Bloomberg published this article focusing on the benefits of “prehab,” movements that warm the body to prevent injury and support functional movement.
A Functional Movement “Aha” Moment
The Bloomberg article addressed the sudden influx of movement-related injuries and strain that the pandemic brought about. As more people worked from home and worked out at home, they found themselves battling pain and movement issues.
Now the idea of preventing those issues through a whole-person approach to performance is not only an Exos focus.
“It’s an idea whose time has come for the industry, but it’s not a new approach for Exos,” explained Jeff DiBiaso, Exos Vice President for Community Operations. “Our clients appreciate our focus on a holistic approach to movement. We move all day, every day, and our bodies need to be able to perform those movements efficiently.”
“That’s the essence of human performance, and it’s what we provide for everyone.”
Functional Performance for Everyone
In addition to providing training for elite professional athletes and teams, Exos manages sports performance training centers, community fitness centers, and physical therapy practices across the U.S. At every site, the focus on functional movement and injury prevention informs the movement plans Exos coaches and trainers provide for their clients.
Exos has developed a proven approach to improving human performance through four holistic pillars: mindset, nutrition, movement, and recovery. By starting every training or therapy relationship with an individual assessment that addresses the four pillars and several functional movement screenings, Exos coaches and therapists are able to identify disordered movement patterns that contribute to current and potential issues with pain and injury.
Welcome to What Works
Using this approach has helped Exos clients break cycles of chronic pain and reoccuring injury by solving the movement problem at its root cause. What’s even better is that Exos has been treating and preventing injuries this way for more than two decades.
