Our proprioceptive system is another sense that often slips under the radar. If you are thinking, “Wait, proprio-WHAT?!" check out this short video. You will see that proprioception isn’t as complicated as it sounds and is indeed super relevant to the work you do in the gym. Ever wonder why most kids love jumping into the foam pit, but some kids appear to especially crave that crashing sensation? Watch to find out! (3 1/2 minutes.)


In this video we answer the question, “What exactly is our vestibular system?” Our vestibular sense involves all things movement and gravity.

Watch this video to see why. (4 1/2 minutes.)
