Fitness should be age-appropriate and organic; it should be designed, not just copied from a book. 3-D exercises are designed using the space around the body (the kinesphere) rather than arbitrary, isolated joint movement. These whole-body exercises produce improved strength while activating the fascia (soft tissues) for whole-body connectivity, remodeling and function.

My fitness approach started 20 years ago when I adapted conventional exercises by adding whole-body movement, dimensionality (use of space), and coordination challenges. In this project “Variations on Six Conventional Exercises,” I show both the conventional and my adaptation. When the series rolls-out starting in March 2017, you’ll see how an exercise changes when the focus shifts from muscle isolation to movement thru space. You can combine these new sequences with the workout you’re already doing and end up with a richer, unique conditioning product.

The thing that really stands out and makes 3-D so different from trending approaches is that 3-D actually organizes the body with regards to function. It seems that all the others are just doing movement for the sake of doing the movement, but 3-D actually has an inherent organizational and logical process.
