Learn to run more efficiently and train smarter with The Dynamic Movement Skills System (DMS) workshop. The workshop will aim to help you see simple things that can be done to improve your all round strength and form.
“DMS is a training and rehabilitation methodology that stimulates the Central Nervous System and helps to refine and develop neuro-motor patterns, gross motor skills, balance, rhythm, coordination and agility.”
Simply put, it is a fun way, with simple exercises carried out on a small mat to assess anyone’s general movement patterns. Weaknesses can be spotted, identified and by gentle exercises worked on to improve form and co-ordination. This naturally leads to increasing performance and identifying imbalances that can lead to injury.
By training the Central Nervous System this way we can relearn correct movement patterns lost through injury and lifestyle. This leads to less injuries and helps us to reach our full potential.
This speed development can reduce ground contact time, leading to increased efficiency and speed.
DMS works in all three planes of motion and dynamically works the core, crucial to efficient running form.
It's also great fun, challenging and a time efficient way to improve your running performance and reduce the risk of injury, and we all could do with some of that!
