Evo101 Event Schedule


Feet, Fascia & Function Summit 2019

in association with Evidence Based Fitness Academy

History IS repeating itself! Back by popular demand, world-leading presenters, an amazing venue and a day full of inspiration. This event is designed for personal trainers, movement therapists, and manual therapists of any form. It will be full of fun, evidence-based information with usable tried and tested strategies and techniques that you can implement for your clients right away.

We trust you can join us for the second annual Evolution101 Summit, with the theme once again being 'Feet, Fascia and Function'.

Content Details:

Dr Matt Wilkinson is an Evolutinary Bioloigist out of Cambridge University and will open the day with his keynote The Longest Journey - the Evolution of Human Movement and Human Nature

We humans are, at our best, remarkably effective movers, with an enviably efficient walking gait and a relentless running mode, both of which were vital in propelling our hunter gatherer ancestors to the top of the Pleistocene food chain. But our movement style is also one of the oddest on Earth. While there are plenty of animals that move on two legs, very few do it bolt upright, and of those, no-one comes close to making the strategy work as well as we do – consider penguins. Our unique way of moving is a result of our equally unique evolutionary history. About 90 million years ago our ancestors took to the trees and adapted to a precarious existence at the fringes of forest canopies. Some 65 million years later they grew rather large, and then returned to the ground roughly 6 million years ago. Join Dr Matt Wilkinson as he explains why this evolutionary journey was quite so instrumental not just in shaping how we now move, but also in forging our other quintessentially human traits, from our opposable thumbs to our advanced sociality and unparalleled intelligence.

Paul Edmonson, of the Gray Institute, will look into how to improve your clients' functional capacity through long term increases in usable mobility, stability and strength. Paul will dive into the importance of ‘joint’ systems (bones and their subsequent ‘spaces’) in the body, and how the brain relies heavily upon them for movement decision-making capabilities. Finally, Paul will demonstrate how to use variability and motion choices to build toward efficiency, skill acquisition and optimal motion thereby erasing muscle tension or tightness.

Functional podiatrist, Dr Emily Splichal (author of 'Barefoot Strong', inventor of "Naboso' and owner of 'Evidence-Based Fitness Academy') will deliver 2 powerful sessions to encourage optimal performance from our clients.

Session 1 takes a deep dive into the advances in (Bare) Foot Science and will review all the latest research in foot function, barefoot science, local stabilization and fascial integration - including tips for effective and evidence-based exercises to integrate into your programming strategies.

Session 2 explores the unique demands of the human foot during bipedal locomotion and the unique fascial architecture required to transmit the associated dynamic forces. Join Podiatrist and Human Movement Specialist Dr Emily as she explores the different push off positions and how internal fascial architecture supports the power of the human foot.

Anthony Carey (inventor of 'Core-Tex'), who was a huge hit last year will once again explore the psychology behind exercise and pain to make sure our programs and interventions are doing what we want them to do, to enhance their safety and their efficacy.

Session 1 A Successful Corrective Exercise Model for the Client in Pain

Truly effective corrective exercise programming creates positive changes in how your clients move and feel through biomechanical, physiological and neurological mechanisms. The client in pain presents additional considerations that must align with the current pain science. Developing a strategic sequencing of exercises maximizes the body’s receptivity to change and creates an optimal motor learning environment. This lecture will assist you in developing a framework for maximizing the impact of your corrective exercise intervention for powerful change.

Session 2 Myofascial Mobility and Movement Objectives: What Comes After the “Release”?

Manual soft tissue treatments and self myofascial release have been shown to create positive changes in soft tissue properties, mobility and pain. What does this new physiological state of the tissue mean to proprioception, feedback, movement and motor learning? We will look at possible considerations for exercise programming and discuss global responses within the body from a movement perspective.

Movement Breaks Led by Richard Scrivener an Animal Flow Global Master Trainer who will lead you through 3 different movement breaks:

Session 1: The ABC's of Animal Flow

Discover the challenges and benefits of these three pivotal Animal Flow Forms: Ape, Beast and Crab. Can you re-connect back into your body through the ground? You'll be humbled by their demands!

Session 2: The Travelling Forms of Animal Flow:

One of the major components of the Animal Flow Programme is 'Travelling Forms', where you'll be tested to locomote in quadruped and biped through Ape, Beast and Crab. Always much harder than you'd imagine, these will be a test of your current global mobility and stability

Session 3: The Form Specific Stretches of Animal Flow:

One of the major components of the Animal Flow Programme is 'Form Specific Stretches', however, don't be fooled by the term 'stretch' as these guys are much more about 'stretch-strength'. This will challenge your ability to exert ground reaction force to take up the correct shapes and the correct time!
