About Us

The First Principles Approach

“First principles thinking is the act of boiling a process down to the fundamental parts that you know are true and building up from there.”

The FPM concepts & philosophy are evidence-based & practical. They bridge the gap from research to practice for reduction of injury risk; accelerated rehab; prevention of chronicity;  performance enhancement; & health span promotion.

This knowledge translation occurs through our unique Lab Immersion Experience. A combination of self-study resources; interactive live problem-based active learning presentations; and hands-on workshops.

While lifespan has increased dramatically, health span has been shrinking. Why is this so?

According to Stephen Hawking, “The solution is simple. More physical activity and change in diet.”
