Become a Better Athlete One Bite At a Time
Run Faster, Jump Higher, Defend Against Injury
Movement Snacking is a fun, 4-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 runs for 4-weeks with daily snacks that take 5-10 minutes to do. Each week, you get three new movement snacks to learn and challenge yourself with.
It’s presented online, but the activities are very much real world.
Who is Movement Snacking for?
Movement Snacking is designed for 10-16 year-olds who loves sport and wants to get the most out of their experiences.
This is NOT only for the "elite". Any young person who wants to reduce their risk of getting injured will benefit from Movement Snacking.
The science behind Movement Snacking
Science shows us that new skills are best leant in bite-size chunks, separated by plenty of rest. It's why Movement Snacking uses small, frequent doses of training ('movement snacks') to build the foundational skills of movement and develop strength, speed and stability.
Research shows that young people are motivated best by novel, playful activities that are appropriately matched to their skill level. Movement Snacking uses this science to create fun yet challenging learning that kids love to engage with.
Biomechanics is the science of movement, including how muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments work together efficiently. Movement snacking teaches young athletes to move well, which significantly reduce their risk of injury and increases their athletic performance.

Young athletes are busy. Schedules are tight. Movement snacking is designed specifically for this reason and can be completed in small chunks – 3-9 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 piece of dowel 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.
