RPX Method: Client Centred Approach to Retraining Motor Control

The workshop is designed to introduce Exercise Physiologists to the Real Performance Exercise Method (RPX) as a tool for teaching all forms of exercises. The RPX method is a holistic approach that integrates the understanding of Neuroplasticity and the principles of Positive Psychology to create a Client Cantered Approach to motor control learning.

The focus is on creating an environment of learning that is slightly stressful but safe, this is to encourage the client to engage their problem solving skills to aide them in identifying their own restrictions of movement and why it is occurring. We explore how the brain can change through the use of Positive and Negative Re-enforcers to establish new patterns and how we can prepare the brain to better adapt to unforeseen forces placed upon it during performance.

The concept of creating stability throughout the body by improving mobility will be explored. The roll of emotions, poor posture, fascia, motor control, stress and perception of pain will be examined in regards to how they can restrict movement. Participants will learn to identify faulty or inefficient movement patterns and understand how Slow Movement Eccentric training, as well as, the use of Balance Training can effectively enhance motor learning and improve movement and overall performance.
