Apr 26 - 27

Understanding Movement & Biomechanics

This masterclass explores the intersection of biomechanics and the aging process. You'll gain a deeper understanding of how the human body functions mechanically and how these functions change as we age.

What you learn: 

  • Muscle Function Assessment: Evaluate your muscle strength, flexibility, and balance, gaining insights into your movement capacities and potential limitations. 
  • The Impact of Falls: Decipher the complex forces at play during falls, analyzing their impact on bones, joints, and overall function. Equip yourself with knowledge and strategies for fall prevention and mitigation. 
  • Corrective Exercises for Enhanced Mobility: Discover evidence-based exercise programs specifically designed to counteract age-related biomechanical changes. Improve muscle function, enhance joint stability, and optimize gait patterns for an active and independent lifestyle. 

Who should attend: 

  • You're curious about how your body moves and changes with age. 
  • You want to proactively maintain your mobility and independence. 
  • You're eager to learn exercises specifically tailored to enhance your body's biomechanics. 

In addition to this event, you can enjoy all of the daily activities that Pritikin offers. See what a typical day looks like.
