“Practice isn’t the thing you do once you're good. It’s the thing you do that makes you good."

Malcolm Gladwell

The First Move principles we teach, show people how to use their bodies safely and effectively to avoid physical strain and injury.

These principles apply in all aspects of our lives be it work, home, sport or recreation.

We all understand the importance of practice to improve a sporting technique.

People will spend a significant amount of time and money trying to perfect hitting a little white golf ball around a paddock!

When it comes to playing sport, it's well understood that there needs to be an investment of time and effort to improve - to get better and/or stronger.

But when it comes to trying to change how to move day-to-day many of us expect to be able to change automatically – and give up quickly if it feels too hard and takes effort.

But just like perfecting any sporting technique – change requires practice.

Individuals need to commit to practising - ‘little and often’- before a new way of moving will start to feel normal – and will become a new habit.

We find that those who practice the principles from our First Move programme very quickly establish safe movement as their new normal. The benefit is more strength with less strain and fewer injuries.
