The Flexibile Periodization Method Program Design  Specialist - Elite Performance

Faster Results Through Holistic, Individualized and Periodized Training Programs

I train all my runners and jumpers with the Flexible Periodization Method and their PRs just keep coming. The individual programs help them a lot and the best of my athletes are breaking into the top ten in their events in Sweden. I coach track and field in a multisport club and we are now working on integrating the FPM in the other sports, cross-country skiing, bike racing, racewalking, and orienteering.

Do you work with athletes, including fitness 
competitors or tactical personnel, whose goal is to compete or pass a physical test on a specific date?

Traditional systems of Periodization have been critizied for being too rigid. In contrast, The Flexible Periodization Method (FPM) is the first system of periodization that is dedicated to highly individualized programs

With The FPM Program Design Specialist - Elite Performance distinction you will help your athletes maximize performance by: 

  • Motivating them to stick with the training program by offering programs that are a unique fit to their training background, physical status, onjectives and available time to train.

  • Preventing overuse injuries and maximize their ability to move in their chosen environment through optimal exercise selection and variation.

  • Moving quickly through plateaus via a systematic variation and progression of exercises, volume, intensity and training methods.

  • Peak at the right time through an individualized tapering and peaking process.

One of the coolest elements of this workshop is the unique way the
FPM determines the number of repetitions per set.

For example, track and field, volleyball, strongman, Olympic lifting.
