A Systematic Way of Thinking

“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.”

Over 2000 years ago, Aristotle defined a first principle as “the first basis from which a thing is known.”

“When we’re faced with complex problems, we default to thinking like everybody else. First principles thinking is a powerful way to help you break out of this herd mentality, think outside the box and innovate completely brand new solutions to familiar problems.”

Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, says there’s a better way to innovate: start with a blank slate and use first principles.

My programs are an attempt to bring First Principles scientific logic to the Movement field. In this way I strive to make it easier for you in an era of information overload to integrate from the millions of methods & dozens of systems the most efficient approach for your client, patient or athlete. N=1 is our philosophy. “The individual’s profile drives our program”
