WHAT WE DO
PurMotion™ was founded by five-time Olympian Jorge Bonnet who has a passion to revolutionize how we exercise by inventing unique, cutting-edge solutions. As a result, PurMotion™ provides simple, quality, cost-effective fitness and performance training systems that allow you to perform exercises in a safe, unrestricted manner, working with your body’s natural movement and flow.
What is the PurMotion™ Methodology?
The PurMotion™ Methodology starts with the human body and what it is capable of doing. The body is designed to do work…plain and simple! Work comes in all different forms from athletics, recreational pursuits, “on the job” requirements, to activities of daily living. Using our simple but powerful methodology, we are able to strengthen and condition the body to comply with Nature’s Law of Human Movement. We develop tools and movement patterns that allow us to challenge the body to perform naturally and at a progressively higher level. You can start at the very lowest level of fitness and progress all the way to your genetic potential—all in a safe and efficient manner.
» The body works as an integrated unit doing ground based movements (ON YOUR FEET!).
» What kind of movements? SIX basic movements. Push, Pull, Rotation, Locomotion, Level Change and Complexes (any combination of two or more of the first five). A complete training program should cover all of them.
» Train in every direction! North/South (sagittal), East/West (frontal), Rotational (transverse)…Ah! just like planet Earth!
» The resistance to motion can come at different angles…aka “Multi-Directional Resistance Training”
» Loads can be equal on both sides of the body or they can be only on one side of the body.
» The body can expend energy slowly or quickly. The body should be trained to do both efficiently and all points in-between.
Following these principles will ensure you will be in compliance with Nature’s Law of Human Movement. This explains why you will never see other mammals doing extensive warm-ups or cool downs before or after a chase!!!
What makes the PurMotion™ approach different?
Well, to begin with, PurMotion™ is centered around a methodology and not a tool or product. The methodology dictates both the form and function of the tools as well as how they will be used. Because we have a methodology, we can explain why we do what we do. Every motion in every workout has a reason and purpose about pursuing natural human movements either using our own bodyweight or managing external weight.
Because our training methodology works with the body and not against it, there is less chance of injury. The tools and movement patterns were designed specifically to keep the joints “happy, happy” and not in an unnatural or compromising position. You can be in your 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond and still be strong, fast and explosive!!! How can you do this? The PurMotion™ training methodology implements the concept of Multi-Directional Resistance Training. This leads to a balanced body reinforcing or validating Nature’s Law of Human Movement.
We teach the body to move in a natural, flowing way (we refer to this as “more sexy” or with “swag”) and in compliance with the Fascial or Functional Lines. We pay extra attention to movement efficiency. No need to do long warm-ups, cool-downs or separate strength and cardio. It’s all rolled up together in a PurMotion™ training methodology
What kind of movement patterns do we use?
Well, our movement patterns come from different training modalities such as Power Lifting, Olympic Lifting, Body Building, Strongman Lifts, Martial Arts, Track and Field and Bodyweight Training. Instead of “ADOPTING” we apply the PurMotion™ Methodology to ADAPT and modified these movement patterns to improve movement efficiency while reducing or eliminating the risk of injury potential.
Is it expensive?
PurMotion™ tools are very cost effective when you consider the number of exercises you are able to perform compared to some gym equipment that only does one thing. For instance, a commercial chest press might cost $1500 to do one move; chest press. The cost per movements is $1500/1 = $1500. The cost of doing a chest press in this machine equals $1500!!! In contrast, the Renegade System starts at $89. You can do at least 10 exercises. Your cost per movement equals $89/10 or $8.90!!! This is a huge cost and space saver option. Fitness should be available to everyone and we are committed to do just that.
