Most importantly, AFS integrates neuromusculoskeletal Chain Reaction™ biomechanics, to address how the body truly functions, three-dimensionally and as a whole. This session will conclude with a roundtable discussion to answer questions and show you how to design a powerful program using AFS. Here is your chance to get all of your questions answered by the “Father of Function,” Gary Gray, founder of the revolutionary Gray Institute. 1-hour lunch is on your own.
