Better Movement for Better Results

Ideally, movement should feel easy and natural. Yet for many people, that is not the case. Fortunately, people can reclaim their ability to move well with the help of exercises that complement their current abilities. Move in More Directions takes fitness back to the basics with concepts that favor natural movements to improve strength, mobility and balance for water or land-based exercise programs. This common-sense guide to exercise provides evidence-based strategies that are easy to implement and deliver better and faster results for clients of any age and any ability.

The course is led by Kinesiologist Laurie Denomme—an internationally recognized fitness educator, aquatics specialist and founder of WECOACH—along with Exercise Physiologist Jeanmarie Scordino, who will teach you how to make basic exercises extraordinary using three key strategies: six-directional movement, seven basic positions of the feet and finding and feeling meaningful movement. The course will expand your movement library and teach you new ways to motivate people of all ages and abilities to get moving.

You will learn:

  • Explore ways to use six-directional movement to reduce stiffness
  • Implement seven basic foot positions to strengthen weak muscles
  • To apply these movements to water exercise or land exercise programs
  • Water and land workouts to improve mobility
  • New ways to help clients find and feel more meaningful movement


It is too short and very basic.

This course is very simple and very repetitive. The 17 page of "coaches notes" did not follow the videos and I found the "information" worthless. Two of the audio segments ended at least half-way through the "recorded" session, so there was "dead air" for several minutes. The first audio segment should have been a video because it was basically a description of various positions and movements. And it was sometimes difficult to understand what movement was described. The 2 last video demonstrations were simply repeats of what was demonstrated before. All of my clients are seniors and even the least fit client would find this too easy and ineffective.
