What We Cover



Foundational Movement Concepts

The foundational concepts provide a framework of knowledge that can be applied to all lifts, exercises, and mobility drills. This section is critical for your understanding of movement as the rest of the course builds upon the concepts covered.



How to Create Tension the Right Way to Maximize your Lifts Safely

There are typically 4 ways people create tension in their lifts. Some are applicable for gymnastics movements (where you make full body shapes) and others are used for heavy lifts. This module covers the 3-step process for breathing, bracing, and creating stiffness in the safest and most effective way.



Find and Fix Deadlift Issues

Keeping your back safe in deadlifts is vital. Find out how to make your deadlift safer and stronger through self-testing and target drills is taught in this module.



Why We All Squat Differently and How to Find Your Optimal Stance

Everyone squats differently. People come in different shapes and sizes. How do you know what squat stance is best? It is based on principles and assessed with a 5-step process to find your limitation to being a better, safer squatter.



Get Strong, Healthy, and Mobile Shoulders

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, yet it's a common site of injury and pain. The question to ask is 'do I need more shoulder mobility'?. This module contains the tests to determine that as well as the right areas to stretch/roll and the most effective strengthening exercises you should be doing.

What People are Saying

“Several years into Crossfit training, I’d have nagging pain every so often, and had plateaued in most of my WOD’s. Attending the TMF workshop helped me fix some of the important things I had stopped paying attention to. The workshop helped me find small fixes that made a big difference in my strength by giving me some good foundational principles to train by. The price I paid for this workshop was a bargain for what I learned. I thought at first the workshop might be too advanced for me, but I felt that Ryan communicated clearly and it was perfect for me as an athlete.”

Karen Gach

Member, Acuo CrossFit

“I’ve taken TMF Workshop twice, around one year apart. Both times I was equally impressed. Being a clinician and a crossfitter I found this material beneficial in many ways. Not only were the systems easy to follow, they also allow for creative accessory work that can be tailored to each individual. Ryan is a genuine human being with skills in leadership, mentorship and educating. This was one of the most effective courses I have been to (and I’ve been to a ton). I’d recommend it to any clinician striving to provide superior care to their patients, any coach who wants to lead their athletes to safe, effective growth, and any athlete looking to expand their knowledge on movement, form and performance."

Matt Wiest, DC

Sports Chiropractor

"Dr. DeBell and The Movement Fix Workshop have been hugely impactful to my practice. As a CrossFit coach (and athlete) as well as a physical therapist who treats mostly CrossFit and weightlifting athletes in my clinic, I found the screening approach he teaches in this workshop to be very interesting and helpful. It will streamline your thinking and outline an application of the tools! Taking the TMF workshop was worth way more than the price!"

Sarah Haran, DPT

Arrow PT Seattle

"Ryan DeBell and The Movement Fix were instrumental in my initiative for continuing education for my 15 Coaches at CrossFit Illumine.   The Movement Fix teaches you that it isn't all about "mashing and smashing" and movement is a lot more complex than what we see at the surface.  It is so important to me as a business owner that my Coaches understand the "why" and can articulate that "why" to our members.  Ryan has a remarkable ability to take complex ideas and make them easily digestible for the average Coach or Athlete.  I highly recommend this seminar if you are serious about professionalizing your coaching staff and business."
