From the Hip explores the structure and function of the hip, taking an in-depth look at hip anatomy and kinesiology. We will introduce concepts such as cylinder rotation, Thomas stretching, the hip-spine connection, capsular restrictions, the foot-hip connection, the function of the external rotators, basic strength testing and the importance of hip function in performance and durability. Explore the hip in a way that creates another dimension in your training programs and gives you a progressive approach toward improving results for clients of all fitness levels.
- Define the structure of the bony and muscular anatomy of the hip.
- Articulate the importance of the “joint-by-joint” approach and its relationship to hip and spine disassociation.
- Develop passive and active assessment skills to identify base-level movement and strength dysfunction.
- Become familiar with teaching progressions for bilateral and unilateral hip hinging.
- Define the transverse plane hip hinge as “cylinder rotation,” and articulate its importance regarding spine health.
- Devise basic programming geared toward correcting hip strength, balance and flexibility dysfunction.

I am Physical Therapist, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and US National TaeKwon-Do champion and team captain. I invented the TRX Rip Trainer and the adjunct 8 hour CEU cours. My latest invention is the Nautilus Glute Drive (the first ever plate loaded Hip Thrust machine on the market.) The combination of understanding rehabilitative medicine and sports performance training has given me a unique perspective on the physical and mental components of human movement. I have enjoyed working with professional athletes from the NFL, X-Games, MLB, UFC, and Extreme Skiing World Championships; however, I pride myself on tapping into the natural athlete in us all.
