Functional Patterns is a training methodology that was founded in 2006 by CEO Naudi Aguilar. Naudi has conducted seminars globally certifying practitioners like us. We confidently say that Functional Patterns is the best in the fitness industry, take a look at the results achieved world wide by Functional Patterns practitioners.

What are Functional Patterns?

Unlike any other point in human history, the greatest health crisis we face as a species is the imbalances that exist within our modern society and our misalignment with nature. This has had a substantial impact on our movement capabilities as we’ve shifted our daily practices from their roots in natural processes towards sociocultural processes. How do we find balance in today’s world with all the dys-biosis that surrounds us? It’s simple, our adaptability to the natural environment determines our health. The better balanced we are with nature, the longer and stronger we live. For humans, this means bringing us back to the beneficial aspects of our evolutionary blueprint that made us healthy to begin with.

The Blueprint

There’s an evolutionary blueprint to all organisms, and Functional Patterns has been cracking the code in human movement for nearly 15 years. Resulting from tens of thousands of hours in testing, we have pioneered the FP methodology, syncing the physics of our natural environment to our health better than any other system out there. Our conclusion has been to train humans according to their biological movement characteristics: Standing, Walking, Running, and Throwing — The “FP Big 4”. By optimizing these four human functions, achieving better health is not a gamble, but an inevitability. This is what it means to train Functional Patterns!

Initial Consultation

In this complimentary 30-minute consultation, we will discuss your fitness and lifestyle goals. Developing a plan of action will fast track you to obtaining any health, fitness or lifestyle goal you have.

90 Minute Assessment

This 90 Minute Assessment is a detailed evaluation of your current physical well-being. First we will assess your breathing mechanics, standing posture, and Gait mechanics (walking/running). With the use of photos and slow-motion video we will break down and identify exact dysfunction in your movement. This provides us with the proper information to identify what physical dysfunctions you may have, and how to fix them. Whether you’re a professional athlete looking to improve their game or someone in pain looking to live and move pain free once again. Understanding how we move and being able to improve and fix the problem is the purpose behind this assessment and future training at Esteem.
