Movement. Exercise. Resistance Training. Crossfit. Gymnastics. Iron. Gym. Classes. Running. Triathlon…
The names, the list goes on and on… whatever your passion programming for that passion and/or goal is part of accelerating and getting to that goal. If you’ve ever followed a program you’ll know the benefit. Objective rather than subjective awareness of improvement, accelerated results, simplicity and ease. All of these things contribute to the reason why having a program and perhaps carrying a pencil and paper around the gym is hugely beneficial.
We here at NLPerform are taking it a step further. As promoted and learnt from The Institute of Motion in San Diego we recommend ‘4q programming’ with all of our clients. It works.
The benefits of this type of programming are:
- Increased metabolism
- You can do it anywhere
- Prepares all tissues (not just muscles) for movement and life
- Reduced risk of injury
- Make programs more fun and varied

Understanding these 4 categories means you can instantly recognize what effect an exercise will have on the body, and be confident that the workouts designed will do what they are supposed to do. Give you great results.
