Let's face it, pain is complex 

- Dr. Daniel Mogoai

If you’re an athlete who no longer wants experience pain, stiffness or boredom at the gym, then you need to train as the body was designed...

 

Follow our holistic approach to develop athleticism and mobility, whilst recovering from injury.. 

Recover from injury and improve performance...

Our bodies where never designed to train in a gym with machines and artificially designed equipment, but we made these things to maximise muscle gains and to keep the body safe..

 

This has left many of our bodies only to be slower, stiffer and at more risk of injury. We have also lost our efficiency for basic movement patterns like sprinting and throwing..

 

Now our bodies have become more susceptible to lower back pain, shoulder and elbow injuries. Not only that, on a day to day basis we’ve lost function..

Most people are unable to bend over and tie their shoes laces or even turn around to wipe their a**, because they’ve lost the necessary range of motion to do so..

 

Our approach is to restore the normal functions of the body through training, taking the path of least resistance that is ingrained through our evolution..

 

By training more regularly through the innate movement patterns of the body, we believe not only will our bodies feel better, but athletic performance will improve!

Your

coach, Daniel

Unsure how to train around an injury?

Maybe your...

  • Not following a program and feel lost when you enter the gym

  • In pain and unable to do the exercises you love

  • Bored of basic bitch exercises like bicep curls and sit ups

  • Looking to build more than muscle and improve mobility and fitness

forget that.

Benefits of following a movement program..

It’s about moving, not beating yourself up

Training with the body means letting go of the “work hard, play hard” mentality and
problem solving with your body to find maximal efficiency and capacity..

Enjoy moving in different ranges 

Throughout this program you will be rolling, jumping, swinging, crawling and so much more that your body will learn to adapt to all sorts of ranges, free’ing you from feeling stiff and rigid..

Build co-ordination and playfulness 

Learn to perform movements natural to the body, that are more complex and get you thinking and playing without judgement of right and wrong..

Train outside and in nature without shoes


Move on sand, grass and trees as the body was intended. You will get direct sensory feedback as you’re prompt to train without shoes, preventing injuries of the ankle, knees, hips and lower back. .

How our rehab & movement programs help..

Traditional training is not wrong, it just does not prioritise training the most important functions of the body…

 

Our skeleton and the fascia, muscles, ligaments and tendons which support it, have evolved to make our body’s more capable of housing organs and moving. 

 

The ribcage is intelligently designed to safe keep the lungs and heart, as is the skull crafted to protect the brain. 

 

Similar to these structures, our joints and fascia were formed to help us in crawling, hanging, walking, carrying things and so much more..

 

However, our biggest mistake has been placing too much of an emphasis on individual muscle groups and training them to prevent injuries and improve function..

 

Continuing to train and think this way will only lead to poorer mobility and function over time, because we are disconnecting further and further from moving with the functions we’ve evolved to perform.

How this program is different to others..

There is no right and wrong 

Following this style of training you'll learn there are ways to be more efficient and more comfortable, but no position is ever right or wrong, the context is what matters most..

Nothing is ever about weight loss 

There will be running and sprinting all throughout the program, but never are we trying to burn energy to lose weight, we are simply allowing the body to move as it was intended..

Focus on little things that make big differences

Poop, stress and sleep all signify a healthy circadian rhythm and alert us to how well we are recovered and feeling internally. In the program you will learn protocols to tackle each one..

Training is always playful..


Every experience adds to the experience, which means exploring new ways to crawl, jump, swing and carry things can only be achieved through play. You have the freedom to play in each of your sessions and find what works for you..

Let the training app, 
be your guide to success!

What doesn't get measured, doesn't get measured.

Through the One Motion Athletic training app, you will not only have access to your coach, but you will be able to track your progress, weight and any habits set by me..


You can think of the training app as your one stop shop, every you need to move like a primal athlete exist there including your communication with me..

Throughout this coaching experience, at no point should you feel like a puppet and I am your puppet master..

You should feel complete autonomy and conversations regarding training should invoke exploration and excitement towards harder challenges!

What a holistic strength program includes..

  • What is included in an initial dietetic consultation?
    The initial consultation is for 1 hour with our dietitian Chanise, and includes coverage of your nutritional goals, general health and fitness questions, medical history, stress management strategies, barriers to change, past interventions and of course, your dietary intake. These questions are covered in-depth and allow Chanise to have a thorough understanding of your personal situation and goals, and how to collate an appropriate nutritional management plan. It will also include sufficient time for you to ask questions, express any concerns or expectations of the commitment to the nutritional intervention.
  • Do I have to commit to an initial dietetic consult?
    It is extremely encouraged to complete an initial dietetic consult. Nutritional interventions requires coverage of in-depth questions to ensure the effectiveness of the provided plan. It is very easy to create a general meal plan for an individual, however to create it individualised to you, your goals and medical history will require answers to detailed questions and will also allow Chanise to support you through any resistance or barriers to the changes that are required to be made. This is also a great chance to goal set with Chanise and expand on reasonings behind your goals, what you have trialled in the past and your challenges and barriers along the way. Therefore, it is required for new clients to complete an initial dietetic consult so that your nutritional management is 100% individualised and best suited to you.
  • What do I receive in the 12-week dietetic coaching?
    The 12-week online dietetic coaching includes ongoing support from our dietitian, Chanise after completing the initial consult. You will receive access to a nutrition app which will include your personalised nutrition program, recipes, habit building and educational resources. Feedback will also be provided weekly throughout the nutrition app, with the addition of either fortnightly or monthly 30-minute video calls, dependent on your requirements and choosing of subscription. The regular feedback during the week and in the consults will include assessments of your goal progression to determine whether Chanise needs to make further changes to your plan to keep you progressing. The aim of the 12-week plan is to provide you with the support, accountability and educational tools for you to reach your goals and to prepare you to be able to fuel your body and maintain your progression in the future.

  • Why can't I book in for a review dietetic consult?
    Unfortunately, our dietitian Chanise only provides Dietetic coaching with commitment of 12-weeks. The reason for this is because nutritional changes do not show overnight. Consistency, dedication and hard work is required but you will achieve your health goal in the end. Therefore 12-weeks allows Chanise to provide you ongoing support, accountability, evidence-based education, and a nutrition plan that will give you long-term progression.
  • What is the difference between a Nutritionist and Dietitian?
    All dietitians are nutritionists, but not all nutritionists are dietitians.. Whilst the definitions may be similar, there are vast differences in regulations and qualifications. As a profession, a nutritionist are not regulated and can have limited qualifications. Dietitians are government regulated, and have graduated with an approved Masters degree specialising in nutrition science and dietetics. The profession contributes to the prevention and treatment of illness through optimising the health of individuals through use of evidence-based nutrition. Specialities in sports nutrition, through undergoing additional educations allows dietitians to integrate all aspects of an individual's nutritional needs in addition to fuelling their sport, athleticism, and body composition requirements. Dietitian with an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) credential commit to ongoing training and education to stay up to date with current research. Medicare, and many private health insurances recognise the APD credential, providing you with the ability to receive health care rebates. Chanise's credentials as an APD has allowed her to further her specialisation into sports performance and receive the title as a Sports Dietitian.
  • Is there a lock in contract?
    There is a minimum commitment period of 12 weeks. Results take time and consistency, so we believe investing this time once and getting it right will give you the knowledge and confidence it takes to succeed long term...
  • Can I do this program if I am completely new to strength training?
    Yes you can! Our unique training system helps everyone who wants to get stronger, fitter, healthier, and feel more confident in their own body, no matter where you're starting from. Our specific progression tips will allow you to alter any exercise to suit your capabilities.
  • Will this require a gym?
    Yes, the program does will require access to gym facility! Building real strength requires weights not yoga mats and we want you to be the strongest version of yourself, so we will not fluff about..
  • Will I be able to customise the program?
    Yes. If you’re injured or unable to perform a particular exercise, in the One Motion App you can substitute an exercise for something more achievable.
  • Is the program suitable if I am pregnant, injured or have a medical condition?
    We suggest seeking advice from a medical professional first, if you are pregnant or have a medical condition before entering the program. If you are injured and are aware of which exercises/movements to avoid, you are able to customise the program by swapping these exercises to more suitable options. However, if you are unsure of what to steer clear of whilst you are injured, we suggest to seek help from a rehab professional before partaking in the program.
