The GMB Method is not just a collection of bits and pieces from different sports; it's a cohesive framework for developing strength, flexibility, and motor control for any activity, and it's built on a foundation of five key values.
In short, there physical autonomy (fitness) is founded on:
1. Knowledge of Your Own Body
2. Progressive Skill Development
3. Focused Training Cycles
4. Goal-Appropriate Attribute Development
5. Social Responsibility
You can get short-term results by a variety of methods, but sustainable, healthy development of your physical capabilities MUST address all five of these values. Neglecting any one of them invites problems when you get busy, sick, injured, or simply have to prioritize other parts of your life for a while (such as after a change of career or the birth of a child).
To turn those values into a viable training system, our three founders have taken their combined decades of experience in gymnastics, martial arts, and yoga along with key insights from physical therapy and distilled them into a coherent system of training that employs the best thinking in modern sport science and educational technology.
What that means for you is clear, friendly instruction that lets you do the things you've always wished you could do with your body.

you. Learning to use it better makes you more effective

your training to be fun.

knowledge and confidence in your abilities
● You mind and body need down time to recover /
rebuild and process new learning
● Manage physical, mental, and emotional stresses
2. Move from Simple to Complex Skills

● Simpler movements are inherently safer while
developing new skills
● Keep trying interesting and more complex variations to
keep things fun and avoid stagnation
3. Follow Natural Cycles in Training
● Life works in cycles, so training MUST follow suit
● Every tool or tactic has advantages and disadvantages
that can be applied strategically - but not all at once
● Skill work is applied strength work, so you never “lose
your gains” with quality practice

4. Develop Attributes for Your Goals
● There’s no level of strength, flexibility, or stamina that
is appropriate for all people
● Develop the physical capabilities required to achieve
your goal abilities

you be better at another thing
● We’re all different, so find what works for you, and don’
t be surprised if your goals change over time
5. Be a Good Person
● Training can’t interfere with your responsibilities to
your community, so be sure it fits your social roles as
well as your training goals
● We all have a different mix of circumstances, so
comparing ourselves with others isn’t helpful
● It’s important to be a good person, and fully owning
your body gives you more opportunities to contribute

won’t do a damn thing for you.

● You must take responsibility for making quality
decisions about your health and lifestyle.

+ Put It To Work:
1. Accept yourself as you currently
are, with all your limitations,
obligations, and insecurities.
2. Commit to giving yourself a few
minutes each day to explore what
your body can do.
3. Pay attention to what you feel and
where you’d like more ability or
4. Focus on improving whichever
goal seems most interesting or
● There’s no reason to make it any
more complicated than that.
● Just play your own game and keep
playing it in whatever way you find
● Get help if you need it. That’s what
we’re here for.
