the word I hear more and more is ‘fascia’. Fascinating for me as a MELT instructor – MELT stands for Myofascial Energetic Length Technique. I have been introduced to MELT 3 years ago at an IDEA convention and became certified the same year.
Even though fascia had been mentioned before by some, it has really taken off in more and more sessions at IDEA World 2012. In addition to MELT, I would give the ViPR training a nod for a new trend for 2013 as well.
I have noticed that trainers are more then just teaching moves. We are considered a friend at a certain point. I also noticed a huge increase in foam roll usage and cross-fit/functional movements.
