THE 3 TRAINING METHODS OF ROOT FX

Tension Release Training

Tension Release Training(TRT) is a revolutionary way of exercising that releases muscle and joint tension while simultaneously increasing strength and range of motion. Tension Release Training is a way of exercising that teaches you to release tension in your joints and transform tight, rigid tissue into more functional tissue. We change your muscle tone by actively engaging tissue while consciously relaxing muscles and joints.

Dynamic Core Movement

Dynamic Core Movement(DCM) is a life-changing tool that helps eliminate the source of tension and pain patterns in your body. Negative patterns can arise from repetitive use, poor posture habits developed over a lifetime, weak muscles that do not have the stamina to perform daily functions or a previous injury that is adversely affecting your body.

RooT Fx Strength Training

RooT Fx Strength Training(RST) is used to stabilize and strengthen weak muscles and stiff joints after you learn to release tension patterns. The strengthening reinforces the positive changes from the Tension Release Training. RST is a progressive step that occurs after you learn to release tension and increase your range of motion. Once you learn to release tight muscles and joints, the natural progression is to strengthen the muscles so the changes become more lasting.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE ROOTED?

Being rooted means being like a strong tree, firmly planted in the ground. Imagine someone leaning their entire body weight on you, but you don't budge. That's what it means to be rooted.

When you're rooted, you're connecting into your core, your center of gravity, and pulling into your feet, like the trunk of a tree. Instead of relying on your joints, which are like branches that can bend or break, you're relying on your muscles to support you. They're like the strong roots of the tree, keeping you stable and grounded.

 

So, being rooted is about standing firm, letting your muscles bear the weight, and staying steady even when faced with pressure or challenges. It's about finding strength from within and staying grounded in your core.

When your training is focused and comes together, it’s timeless. There’s no sense of time or place. It’s you and your body finding its center as you move through space.

In tc we practice to become softer in the extremities, not harder or firmer-you don’t want to hold tension in your feet or hands or neck and head. This means our joints become “softer” and more mobile and our hands, arms, feet and legs become more fluid. Where does the strength come from? Primarily the core muscles-the thighs, glutes, abs and back muscles. We focus on strengthening our connection and movement into the core through the feet. A process we call, “rooting”.
