GMB 2-Day Workshop at Momentum Training

Posted 28th May 2015 by Josh Schouten

“Don’t Die Without Exploring What Your Body Is Truly Capable Of”

The GMB curriculum builds strength, flexibility, and motor control with fun movement skills that carryover to sports performance and everyday life.  GMB are coming to Momentum Training to host a 2day workshop…

As Crossfitters we often believe we are fit and strong because we can move large loads over long distances.  However, may of us struggle to control and move our own bodyweight, the gymnastics element of CrossFit have a long way to go when comparing them to actual gymnasts.  Here is a chance to focus on learning to use your body.

The truth is that most of us stopped learning and practicing new physical skills sometime in early childhood – once upon a time you crawled, you walked, you ran, you jumped… then what happened?

If you’re like most people, you sat down and started working.

Since you’re reading this, there’s a pretty good chance that you’d like to make some improvements in what your body is capable of, which is an amazing coincidence, because that’s exactly why Momentum Training has asked GMB to run this workshop.

Strengthpowerspeedstamina, and endurance are great, but they don’t always translate to skilful movement. What about the other 5 general physical skills of CrossFit, flexibilitycoordinationagilitybalance and accuracy?

The path to success is almost never linear, and we all develop at different rates. GMB programs teach you how to interpret your body’s signals and adjust the training as necessary. This isn’t a miracle protocol cooked up by some “fitness guru” – the GMB coaches come from diverse backgrounds and bring a wide range of expertise and experience.



This is a 2 day course that will be hosted by Gayle Pocock from

Saturday 25th July 2015 13:00 – 17:00
Sunday 26th July 11:00 – 15:00


Movement is a combination of strength, mobility and motor control. Some of us have great strength but very poor mobility and motor control. Others have great mobility, but lack strength and motor control. Which are you? What are you individual areas of weakness and where should you focus your time to improve and effort to help improve your movement?

Here is some of what I’ll cover:

– Warm up drills for the whole body
– Mindful movement practice with focus on locomotive patterns
– Movement assessment and adjustment
– Handbalancing (both introductory and advanced)
– Ring training principles
– Focused Flexibility methods
