Our Mission: The Why
Improve the standards of human movement by perfecting the fundamentals.
What we do
We deliver Movement and Strength workshops to PE teacher’s and Personal Trainer’s working with children aged 8-18 years old and their parents and guardians.
Lifelong is the brand; physical literacy is our business
Physical literacy enables you to understand how to move in an optimal movement sequence that is beneficial to your everyday life.
Lifelong Movements aim is to get the nation ‘moving better’. Lifelong Movements has developed educational family books which engage people in physical activity. Throughout the books, readers are given the opportunity to imitate the movements demonstrated by the memorable characters. During their development phase, the books have already involved children around the UK in physical literacy.
The term ‘functional’ in the leisure industry is overused and often misinterpreted. ‘Functional’ means ‘fit-for-purpose’, and although there are many fitness methods that do require high levels of combined fitness capacities (strength, flexibility etc.), the question remains: ‘functional for what purpose?’.
Lifelong Movements relates to the functions of everyday living. It combines Activities of Daily Living (ADL) with an exercise we would use in the gym/at home/outside. Exercise becomes more than just exercise – it becomes purposeful. The easiest way to explain this is, for example, by asking the question: for what purpose would we use the squat? The answer is: squatting is important for moving from sitting to standing, for going to the toilet, for picking things up, and for all sorts of other essential tasks. We now have a reason to squat better and more often, as we know it is necessary for everyday life.
Lifelong Movements is the education provided to PE teacher’s and Personal Trainer’s. It gives meaning to the term ‘functional training’ and highlights what is necessary for people to live long and independent lifestyles free from injury.
We’re excited by our Movement and Strength Course/Workshops, delivered to health and fitness professionals around the UK.
We work alongside those who have a similar vision and want to give back to our communities. We hope you enjoy your visit to the website. Remember: INVEST IN BETTER MOVEMENT!
