Muscle Activation Therapy
Muscle Activation Therapy or M.A.T is a form of manual therapy that can aid in mobility and movement issues.  It is a form of physical therapy aimed at the treatment of soft tissue to prevent exercise and non-exercise related injuries.  M.A.T is a dynamic assessment system that analyzes and corrects muscular imbalances.  It is successful in the reduction and elimination of pain and fatigue, as well as enhancing muscular recovery in athletes.  CFI is partnering with Thomas Amsden, a muscle activation therapist to provide CFI athletes with this awesome form of therapy and injury prevention.  He will be offering sessions to CFI athletes for $75.00 per session, which is a 25% discount on his usual price.  The sessions are on site at CFI.  If you are interested in M.A.T please feel free to contact Thomas at thomasactivation@aol.com or call (256) 270-6170.

Fundamentals – Encourage your friends to try our Fundamentals class!  We schedule free intros throughout the week and the next session starts October 6th.  If you refer a friend and that friend signs up for Fundamentals, Fast Track, or regular classes you will receive one of our awesome new t-shirts!
