About the Author
Philippe Til is a seasoned martial artist of close to three decades, and a fitness entrepreneur. After a spinal injury left him nearly immobilized and threatened with spinal fusion, Philippe sought out the skills and education to become a personal trainer with an emphasis of corrective exercises, as well as natural movement patterns. Having received instruction from leaders in their own field (kettlebells, Indian Clubs, Functional Movement Systems, Wildfitness etc.), Philippe eventually invented equipment that would combined all the fitness modalities and systems he learned into one product. At the urging of Dr Ed Thomas, he committed his free time to translate the works of Georges Hébert, whose methods hold a strong place in the annals of Historical Fitness and still stand the test of time (French is Philippe’s native language, and fitness is his passion and profession). Successful fitness programs being about setting goals. When asked what his goal is, the answer always remains: longevity. With an active lifestyle that includes surfing, snowboarding and two active young sons, being able to move well and into later years is of utmost importance and he wants to share that with everyone who reads the books!
Foundation for good movement is necessary. In this installment, Hébert walks us through all the exercises relating to arm, leg, trunk, hopping, support, suspension and breathing, and later weaves the use of equipment into all those layers. A must for anyone, in any activity.
