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.

3-D Workout™, our flagship product, is a unique conditioning program developed by Dianne L. Woodruff, CMA, PhD and inspired by the work of Irmgard Bartenieff and Rudolf Laban. The goal of 3-D Workout is to help clients achieve life-long fitness and coordination through integrated, harmonious and biomechanically-correct movement sequences. Learn 3-D Workout from DVDs, downloads, YouTube videos and classes for the public by trained, certified instructors.
3-D Workout: the Chair Edition (2014) DVD is now in the BiM store and ready for orders. This accessibility version of 3-D is designed so the mover can experience 3-D from a chair. Not everyone wants to get down on the floor so The Chair Edition is an alternative way to get the 3-D benefits. Almost anyone can learn how to use all the space around the body and enjoy the feeling of “reaching” into that space.
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.
3-D ProTrainer, Carrie Lynn Nieves, writes:
“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.”
3-D Workout: The Chair Edition teaches you to use the space around you, to shift your weight, to discover new ways of moving. The Chair Edition includes a 38-minute instructional segment that walks each client through proper technique, movement execution, use of space and breathing. A 15-minute workout segment leads the mover through these 13 sequences at a faster pace. Go to the store now for your copy of Dr. Woodruff’s innovative chair program.
