The Romans threw javelins, the Native Americans threw spears, the Irish throw darts, Josh Beckett throws fast balls, Tom Brady throws frozen ropes, and kids across America throw frisbees, bean bags, yard darts, horse shoes, snow balls, you name it. Throwing is fun! Even watching someone throw is fun. But, to many people, there is a very large misunderstanding regarding analysis and evaluation of throwing. Within this course, Gary Gray will discuss these things, along with many other critical training and rehabilitation strategies of throwing.
Marathons are as popular as ever and running remains America’s favorite form of exercise. In this course, Gary Gray will explore the biomechanics and the Chain Reaction® of running and share his unique observation on how to diagnose problems and prescribe exercises that will keep his patients, athletes, and clients running for a lifetime. Gary will explain and give understanding to the three B’s of running, Big Toe, Butt, and Belly.
You have to learn to crawl before you can run. This little bit of wisdom is both allegorical and literal. Functionally, everyone has to master basic forms of movement before moving onto more complex forms of movement. In this course, Gary Gray and a special operations training specialist examine the development of on-ground function and its influence on more complex forms. This course will help in exploring and understanding the normal milestones of motor development. Gary provides knowledge that makes it evident the functionality of accomplishing things on the ground.
Our Gray Institute online educational module entitled An Overview of Applied Functional Science™ is presented in three logical parts. Part One describes Applied Functional Science™ as the convergence and integration of the physical sciences, biological sciences, and behavioral sciences. These three sciences are individually defined and their significance to their contribution to Applied Functional Science™ is outlined. In Part One you will gain an appreciation for how Applied Functional Science™ takes us on a journey.

This is your chance to spend an hour and a half LIVE with Gary and Doug Gray.A few weeks ago we co-hosted a live presentation for some of the local coaches, personal trainers and strength coaches in our area to discuss the action of squatting and how it impacts athletes and individuals they work with on a daily basis. In this presentation Gary and Doug discuss the various dangers in traditional squats and how we can better prepare everyone to accept the loads and stresses of squatting in their day to day lives regardless of activity level.
At the Fast Function desk, Gary, Dave, and Bob join one another to discuss the complex topic of stability and balance from a functional standpoint. This issue describes the powerful balance strategies emanating from principles of Function that focus on positions, drivers, and personal influences. Through easy to understand examples, the issue illustrates the enhancement of stability and balance through the utilization of techniques founded in Matrices (logical, three-dimensional exercises).
There are only a few constants in life, one of these constants being that we are chronologically getting older as we are blessed with the joy of living life. One of our goals is to physiologically stay as youthful as possible. In this course, Gary Gray invites one of his associates, Toni Garrison PT, to take a functionally unique look at the pelvic floor. The primary concern that Gary addresses, evaluates, and discusses how to rehabilitate, is figuring out what causes the pelvic floor to be turned off.
