Our general curriculum includes a variety of challenging courses that meet or exceed requirements given by various associations. Our focus is on the fundamental biomechanics in human movement science, how to assess for dysfunction, and how to correct it. Suitable class sizes and exceptional, qualified teachers allow Form & Function Academy to offer an intimate and exclusive educational environment, while also ensuring each student receives the individualized attention and support they need


We desire to create an educational atmosphere that students will love being around. Our programs are intended to empower students to tackle challenges and take on experiences that may be new to them. At Form & Function Academy, we are constantly striving to make learning fun and dynamic so that all of our students can accomplish their goals. We encourage trainers to approach training as prohylactic health care to promote client- trainer trust and reduce the risk of client injury.
