FAQ

What is locomotion?

Technically, locomotion is translational movement from one location to another. The term locomotion in the fitness world is used to describe a practice that involves movement using all four limbs. I like to say it’s basically crawling around on the floor like an animal.

Why should I crawl around the floor like an animal?

Locomotion is one of the most entertaining and efficient ways to develop the three fundamental aspects of physical autonomy - strength, mobility, and motor control.

What is physical autonomy?

Physical autonomy is the ability to do all the things! Well, all the things that are important to YOU. Maybe it’s just picking something up off the floor without wincing. Or playing a neighborhood game of <insert sport> and not feeling broken the next day. No matter what your movement goals are, locomotion can help you progress towards them.

What is motor control?

Motor control is the ability to pat your head and rub your tummy at the same time - getting your body to do what your brain is telling it to. Practicing locomotion helps you develop motor control, increasing the efficiency and ease of all your movements.

How does locomotion do it all?

GMB locomotion has four basic movements: Bear, Monkey, Frogger, and Crab. There are endless variations of these exercises and ways to link them together. Each movement simultaneously engages the upper body, core, and lower body in unique ways. For instance, the "Spiderman" version of Bear shown below helps develop upper body strength, spinal mobility, and bilateral coordination.

About The Teacher,
GMB Trainer Rebecca Rashkin

I am an engineer and fitness trainer, but most of all, an educator. I am passionate about sharing my knowledge, whether it be about computers or movement. Handstands and locomotion bring me delight, and I find satisfaction in helping others discover this joy for themselves. In addition, I enjoy strength training, road cycling, and practicing vinyasa yoga.

I also really love rabbits 🐰
