Become a Better Athlete One Bite At a Time
Run Faster, Jump Higher, Defend Against Injury
Movement Snacking is a fun, 8-week movement course I've designed for young athletes who want to move better, defend against injury AND improve their game.
The Movement Snacking
Movement Snacking is based on research in biomechanics and sports physiology and in the science of habit and ‘bite-size’ learning.
But more importantly, it’s based largely on experimentation and fun! It moves away from repetitive, fitness style exercises that kids (and adults!) can quickly find boring and instead concentrates on daily movement ‘snacking’ with basic equipment found around the home.
The course has a fourteen day calendar with daily snacks that take 5-10 minutes to do. The two week period then repeats, with changes in the challenge and experimentation in each snack.
It’s presented online, but the activities are very much real world.
The science behind Movement Snacking
The science of learning shows us that high amounts of movement variability in training leads to better skill outcomes. Movement Snacking uses small, frequent doses of training ('movement snacks') to develop strength, speed and the skill of movement - crucial to reach your best sporting performance.
Young people are motivated best by activities that are playful and appropriately matched to their skill level. Movement Snacking uses this science to create a fun, challenging learning environment that kids love.
The normal processes of growth and development significantly affect a young athlete's sporting experiences, including increasing the risk of injury. Movement Snacking is designed in a way that accounts for the accelerated growth of a developing child and the high physical demands of youth sport.

Young athletes are busy. Schedules are tight. Movement snacking is designed specifically for this reason and can be completed in small chunks – 10-15 minutes, most days of the week.
Yes, a little . But everything you need can be found around the home or at minimal cost from your local hardware store (Craig will let you know exactly what you need inside).
Absolutely! All snacks are designed using the athlete’s bodyweight, a resistance band or a light rock.
You can think of snacks as movement ‘problems’ that require strong and stable body shapes and positions to get right. The beauty of this approach is that with a enough effort, the athlete improves without the need for live feedback from a coach.
