WHO AM I AND WHAT IS LANDIS MOVEMENT SYSTEMS ALL ABOUT?

My name is Josh Landis, and by trade I am a personal trainer, manual therapist, and I am forever a student of human movement. I have a strong passion for helping people discover their full potential to live healthier and happier lives, and I believe that movement plays a very vital role in that endeavor. I believe that disciplined practice and exploration of movement not only aides in physical transformation, but more importantly, it aides in the process of self-discovery and personal growth. It can help us to be honest with ourselves and realize what really matters to us in life. It can push us to our physical and mental limits, and force us to face our fears and weaknesses. It allows us to build the resiliency and strength to go out into the world and enjoy it to the fullest extent. And that is why I am so passionate about movement; it's part of who I am at my core. Living a movement-rich, active, playful lifestyle allows me to live in sync with my core values:

  • Integrity - Purposeful pursuit of discovering, embracing, and loving your true self.

  • Progression - Constantly pushing to grow and improve physically, mentally, emotionally, intellectually. Be your best self.

  • Fun - Never stop having fun. Don't just exist. Live. Explore. Play. Be Happy.

I created Landis Movement Systems in order to create and serve a like-minded community; a community open to anyone who wants to improve their movement capacity and overall ability to stay healthy and perform at a high level. I've dedicated my life to mastering my understanding of human movement. The integrated nature of us as humans is fascinating, and having a great understanding of this has huge implications in the world of health and performance. Combining different philosophies and disciplines from the worlds of biomechanics, functional anatomy, neurology, and pain science helps to paint a more complete picture in the process of healing and building strength and resiliency. Landis Movement Systems perpetuates these values through providing:

  • Education - I want to provide accurate, science-based, effective, and practical information in order to help educate colleagues, clients, and followers. Through my own pursuits to further my understanding of human movement, I want to share my insights. I want to provide well-resourced guidance to simple, effective, science-based training and self-care.
  • Community - It can be surprisingly difficult to find a place where you feel like you really connect with others. Part of what makes any of us truly successful is to be a part of a community that we love, trust, and want to contribute to. This is what makes us so strong as a human race. We need to embrace, uplift, and support each other to be our strongest selves.
  • Professional Services - I'm in the trenches everyday applying, testing, tweaking, and fine-tuning my theories and techniques in order to provide to best training and therapy services possible. My system of training is constantly evolving as I continue to gain new insights. However, I try to never deviate too far from tried and true methodologies. Simple and effective is the goal.

By reflecting on what strength training has given me personally in my life, I discovered my passion: to help others in their pursuit of a good life, using my expertise on human movement as my vehicle for doing so. With a good depth and breadth of knowledge and experience, I want to be an invaluable part of your health and wellness team. Join me on my quest to improve the health and fitness industry, and to optimize our movement!
