Seminar [2019]

Everything we've learned over the past 4 years covered in the span of 6 hours.

Workshop 1.0 [2019]

2 hour hands on session to learn and experience restoring and rewiring your feet and hips. 

What is The Foot Collective?

We’re a global tribe of Health Nerds on a mission to help humans reclaim strong, functional, and pain free bodies. Our goal is to empower people with the knowledge they need to protect their bodies from the dangers of modern life and provide simple guidance on: restoring functional, pain free, and resilient bodies starting at the feet.

In the past year, we have been asked to travel to 28 cities across 6 countries to deliver education experiences around the world.

This video highlights one of those adventures to the Red Bull High Performance Institute in Santa Monica, CA where we got the chance to teach some of the world's top athletes. 

Footwear as it currently exists is destroying our feet.

Shoe companies are in the business of making money, not of making footwear that is good for our feet. We’re spreading the truth about footwear and helping people understand the dangers of wearing cushioned, supportive and ramped footwear. Your best defense against pain or injury is knowledge and TFC's purpose is to give people the information they need to protect themselves.

Your feet are magically designed to send your brain signals about the ground below you.

When they get compressed into cushioned shoes it prevents them from sensing the ground and creates nasty upstream effects for our bodies.

Do your parts move like your parts need to move?

With so many people putting in time doing mobility work, it’s important to mention that constantly seeking more mobility is not the best approach. Mobilize for a purpose: use mobility work to open up joint mobility that’s needed to improve a position or movement, not just for the sake of doing more mobility work. Once you’ve reclaimed optimal mobility it’s pretty simple: use it or lose it.

Quality education on restoring your own feet and hips is hard to come by so we decided to take a stand.

Every human has 2 feet and most of those feet aren’t working like nature intended. Your feet form the foundation for your body – without a strong foundation we compensate and eventually run into problems. Most people we see with dysfunctional (not working properly) feet don’t have foot pain. They have problems upstream— 
  • low back pain
  • hip imbalances
  • hip impingement
  • knee pain 
—and most of those problems can be traced back to some degree to problems with their foundation.

We want to teach you how to independently take ownership of your body and fix issues yourself without having to constantly depend on health professionals.

FAQs

Is pricing in CAD or USD?

All prices are in United States Dollars.

Do either of these courses expire?

No, these courses are yours to watch over and over and you have lifetime access!

Do you offer any CEC's or certifications for completing your courses?

Not as of right now, but it could be something we look into for the future.

What is the difference between the two courses and if I get the Seminar [2019] will it cover everything in the Workshop 1.0?

Because the Seminar [2019] is packed with 4 hours more content, it is able to cover each topic in more detail. That being said, most people do purchase both courses and have found each to be useful. A good way to decide might be to visit each course's product page and compare their summaries to know what is covered in each course. 

Who are these courses for?

We are fortunate to have a wide variety of people in all domains and phases of life who choose us as one of their sources for physical health education. Runners, powerlifters, health professionals, crossfitters, physiotherapists, beginners, pro athletes, student-athletes and everything in between all have a real need to have an optimally functioning body. It is our goal to be able to provide the foundation for that to be possible. 

What if I don't like the course?

We will refund your money. No questions asked 🙂
