My Name is Greg Stern,
Here is My Story
In 2013, I sustained an ankle injury that would forever change my life.
What appeared to be a routine ankle sprain, developed into a chronic problem in my foot that caused me constant pain for 4 years.
I felt broken, unbalanced and in constant pain.
I was afraid to train or play the sports I loved.
One bout of activity would set me back for days.
I tried physio, osteo, orthotics, orthpedic shoes.
NOTHING WAS WORKING
I was frustrated, at my wits end, depressed, desperate, and searching for answers.
I had no direction, no hope, no strategy.
Eventually I went under the knife.
I woke up thinking that finally my problems would be over!
But this was ONLY the beginning…
A whole host of new compensatory problems developed, and I felt even lower..
I knew I needed to dive deeper to understand my body if I was ever going to escape the constant aches I was experiencing.
I became OBSESSED with understanding how the body moves and have spent thousands of hours and dollars experimenting and learning from the best therapists and movement coaches from around the world.
I chipped away slowly at my problems everyday, constantly experimenting and progressively making more and more progress.
Thankfully, I am now pain-free feeling movement freedom in a way that I never have had in my whole life, I can play the sports I love unimpeded by fear and go for long hikes barefoot (yes you read that correctly!) after not being able to stand for more than few seconds without pain.
With From the Ground Up, my aim is to help guide people through their own path of self-discovery on their health journeys and guide people to not only be pain-free, but to thrive in their everyday lives.
I have done the hard work vetting which strategies are most effective for creating long term change.
My skillset is centered around improving movement and performance for those looking to enjoy family time, for the average gym goer, fitness class junkie and higher level athlete. I specialize in progressive methodologies that are designed to identify and improve whole body limitations.
From The Ground Up Approach
This program recognizes the interconnection between the whole body and that nothing works in isolation.
We focus on regaining optimal mechanics and movement at the foundation (feet, hips, ribcage and spine) through full body strength & mobility exercises.
Included in this program are:
Breathing drills to facilitate a dynamic ribcage & pelvis
3D mobility & strength drills that mimic how we use our body during the gait (walking) cycle
Exercises that build strength and coordination between muscles in the lower body so that your whole body works together as a unit
Leaping drills to train the body how to create elasticity and spring-like qualities for easier walking & running
Easy to Follow Videos
I understand it can be challenging to learn an exercise through a video without having a coach to guide you through the process.
That's why I have highly detailed videos that each address:
The purpose of the exercise
How to execute the exercise with proper form
What you should feel
Common mistakes and how to correct them
DAILY PRACTICE BONUSES
Simple movements to do at your desk to break up your day and keep you moving well
Education on how to sit more comfortably
Recommendation on footwear & tools to use to help you regain a strong foundation
Latest science on behaviour change to best incorporate this program into your routine
