Functional Range Systems Practitioner

My background (and first love) is Massage Therapy. I graduated valedictorian with a 4.0 GPA from Cortiva - CSMT and I've had my license since Jan 2010. Later, I went to NPTI for a NASM Personal Training Certificate in Oct 2014 and went on to receive my Crossfit L1 the following year, Oct 2015.

My background (and first love) is Massage Therapy. I graduated valedictorian with a 4.0 GPA from Cortiva - CSMT and I've had my license since Jan 2010. Later, I went to NPTI for a NASM Personal Training Certificate in Oct 2014 and went on to receive my Crossfit L1 the following year, Oct 2015. With these fundamental disciplines I was introduced to Functional Range Systems in 2017 and attended my first course - Functional Range Conditioning - in 2018. The content of this course hit me like a ton of bricks and I immediately realized my perspective on human movement, massage therapy and training was lacking, to say the least. This led me down a rabbit hole of passionate personal study into understanding the behavior and mechanisms of human cells/tissue to apply (with great success) to my manual therapy and training. For the rest of 2018 and 2019, I collected the Functional Range Release Spine/Upper Limb/Lower Limb certificate as well as the Functional Range Assessment certificate, all of which which are hands-on therapy-based practices. As for fitness, I consider myself a jack of all trades and am intrigued by many different disciplines. As a result, I have pursued many different types of fitness but have yet to become a master of one. Most recently my interest and focus has been Powerlifting, increasing aerobic/anaerobic capacity as well as learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I've also been doing more personal study on the effects of stress, heart rate variability/polyvagal theory, whole food nutrition/microbiome and their relationship to health optimization.  

In March of 2019, I decided to mesh all my education together and practice Functional Range Systems inside Big Shoulders Crossfit under the "The Better Humans Project". The rest is better humans in the making!

This was my first time and I will be purchasing a membership! Katie is so knowledgeable about nutrition and is very interested in your whole being- she does so much more than massage therapy- Katie is a great listener and wants to get to the root of your pain. The massage was perfect too.I can’t wait to go back and feel Katie will be able to help me get in my best shape and health
