Body Rewire is the new revolutionary Award researched and developed to meet the needs of many within today’s population who suffer from poor movement skills.

Body Rewire has been designed to stimulate and re-engage the neuromuscular system so it can perform movements that may have become lost or difficult for individuals to carry out due to past injuries, age and lack of training and conditioning.

To accomplish this re-body wiring we engaged the brain and the body by performing a number of movements in 5 categories, these patterns of movement are:

Homologous Pattern – upper and lower body halves. Getting the arms and legs working together.
Homolateral Pattern – left and right side of the body. Being able to move the left and right side of the body as one unit in coordinated patterns.
Core Distal Pattern – opening and closing patterns of movement.
Spinal Pattern – front and back control. Mobilises and stabilises the spine.
Cross Lateral Pattern – both sided patterns of movement. This connects the body across the vertical mid line.

Body Rewire is a fun, challenging workout comprising of a group of specially designed exercises which stimulates all areas of movement patterns, improves your general movement, balance, core and vision. It is ideal for all ages and all levels of fitness. A number of the exercises are cardiovascular increasing the individual’s heart rate so they are really having a workout.

Feedback

“Worked every muscle in the body, some of the exercises I had never done before. Fantastic session!” Jane FitCamp 2015
“This was a completely new experience for me. The exercises were unusual, different but very effective. It has been a long time since I have crawled, rolled and slid. I was also amazed how quickly my heart rate was raised. Loved every second, can’t wait to do it again!”
