Diagnosis Fitness

I’ve gotten a ton of questions about the upcoming Diagnosis Fitness seminar, so I figured I’d do a big post here and answer the questions where everyone can see them.

Here goes!

What’s the general format for the seminar?

Great question! This seminar will be broken down into four segments or components:

Friday AM – Your Movement Foundation

This is the starting point. Regardless of where you’re starting, we’re going to show you all the basics of movement, how to play the kinetic chain game, functional anatomy, etc.

Friday PM – The IFAST Assessment

The assessments we use. We’ll literally cover everything from the big toe up to your head and neck. We’ll cover:

static posture and alignment,

isolated joint and muscle tests, and of course,

the big integrated movement patterns.

Saturday AM – Learn by Doing

This is what you came for!

We can show you all the tests until we’re blue in the face, but at the end of the day you need to be able to walk out of this seminar and perform the IFAST assessment with some degree of competence.

Here you’ll be actually going through the assessment on other attendees, with Mike and Bill helping you learn exactly what to look for.

Saturday PM – Correctives and Energy System Training 101

After the assessment, you’ll be armed with tons of information – but where do you go from there?

Here we outline the starting point for program design, as well as how your assessment drives the corrective exercise process. We’ll also briefly cover Energy System Training, and how to actually do it correctly. If all you’ve ever done is fat-loss/glycolytic intervals, this is going to be a breath of fresh air!

I don’t know if I’ve ever seen Bill this excited about something, and he said he’s literally willing to spend all day at this seminar to over-deliver on value. It’s going to be awesome!

How interactive will the seminar be?

Extremely interactive. Bill and I will both be there all day to show you exactly how to perform the tests and exactly what you should be looking for.

This isn’t a seminar where you show up and our cronies do the work – you will be working with us, all day, both days.

Where will the seminar be held?

This is going to largely be based on attendance. Friday will be at one of two hotels, based on how many attendees we end up with.

Saturday will be held at IFAST.

Mike, are you getting sexier with age?

I can’t explain it either, but I’d have to say yes. 🙂

Are you guys taping the seminar?

We will be taping the seminar, but I’m unsure of whether we’ll be selling it. The course will be recorded so that attendees can go back and review the materials after the fact, as there’s going to be a ton of ground covered over these two days.

Are you guys going on the road with this?

The short answer? No.

The long answer? I am trying to travel less at this point. My goal is to start doing more and more lectures here in Indy, so unless someone pays Bill and me a small fortune to take this elsewhere, our IFAST–approved courses will only be offered in Indianapolis.

How similar will this be to the Bulletproof Knees and Back Seminar?

As I always say, good movement is good movement. I feel like Bill and I both teach quality movement, so there will definitely be overlap.

But I covered a ton of material in that seminar series, and I think I only spent 3-4 hours on assessment. This entire seminar will be focused on assessments, and we’ll be taking things quite a bit further than I did in BPK&B.

Is Bill Hartman really a cyborg?

I spend a lot of time with Bill. I still can’t answer this with 100% certainty, but I’m leaning toward no.

Instead, I think he’s more like Neo in the Matrix when he stops seeing “people” and just sees the code that is The Matrix.

When it comes to assessing movement, I’m not sure there’s anyone better in the game today.

If you’re interested in attending Diagnosis Fitness, be sure to register ASAP as the rate will jump $200 as of July 2nd

All the best,
