Gray Cook

MSPT, OCS, CSCS

Gray Cook is a practicing physical therapist and orthopedic certified specialist. He is also a certified strength and conditioning specialist and kettlebell instructor. He is the founder of Functional Movement Systems and author of Athletic Body in Balance and Movement. His work promotes the concept of movement pattern screening and assessment. His ideas are at the forefront of fitness, conditioning, injury prevention, and rehabilitation.

He contends that we must map movement patterns and consider movement as a behavior and not simply as clean mechanical data--parts over patterns. We must also develop better understanding of how movement is learned, maintained, and restored. Cook's work cuts to the core of problems like low back pain, obesity, and the general physical decline of a modern culture. By revisiting the natural developmental principals that all infants employ as they learn to walk, run, and climb, Gray forces us to rethink motor learning, corrective exercise, and modern conditioning practices.

The concept of corrective exercise is not a new one, but A Common Sense Approach to Correcting Movement explores new paths to create positive changes that are focused on maintaining functional movement patterns. By beginning at the developmental sequence, the shared timeline that all humans follow in developing functions associated with locomotion and manipulation, correcting movement is emphasized in the same manner that it was initially formed. Has the individual lost the movement? Or have they only forgotten a pattern they once had? Should we attempt to recreate that which can be remembered? Can a strategic action bring back a movement memory?

Video Runtime: 108 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 24 Minutes

Club swinging has been a form of training, exercise, and art for thousands of years, reaching its peak popularity in the early 20th century. Introduction to Indian Clubs seeks to regain that level of interest in clubs and their benefits. In this course, Gray Cook and Brett Jones take you through club swinging basics that include safety considerations and proper grip, patterns that serve as great entry points, and five classic swing patterns.

This course focuses on the benefits of club swinging, especially the connection of the upper and lower body through symmetry, posture, balance, and fluid arcs of motion. The variety of patterns represented here will allow the opportunity to enhance speed with symmetrical and asymmetrical movements while intuitively training posture, upper body mobility, and core stability. Commentary and hands-on training are supplemented by a tall-kneeling holds workout to fast-track progress with the clubs.

Video Runtime: 63 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 12 Minutes

A Common Sense Approach to Evaluating Movement is an introduction to a new way of looking at movement through the lens of function. By dividing movement into four distinct levels and discussing the specific factors valuable to evaluating movement at each level, we learn how we've often looked at movement, and our attempts to improve it, from the wrong perspectives. The course uses the natural developmental sequence to delineate the four levels of movement as Health, Function, Fitness, and Skill, and asks the basic question, Are you investing your attention at the proper level?
