This week we have started the pre-learning for our April 7th course in Functional Performance, one of our functional training courses.  Everyone who signs up to our Specialist Performance course live this month, will get to join this group of 150 students (and counting), to share your thoughts and read the things we are sharing.  The course relies on numbers, and so if you are not part of it, then it would be great to hear from you and get you on board.
