DRIVEN BY FUNDAMENTAL MOVEMENTS
Scale the Heights has 9 Basic Movements at the heart of its methodology. These movements are key to our functional purpose as we believe they encompass the general needs of the community we serve and an application to real life situations. Each one can be regressed or progressed for different abilities and purposes. Each one has a defined beginning, middle and end, which standardises expectations whilst encouraging our members to move well often.
All of these movements feature frequently in the More Than Human Programme that gives our members a training structure to follow. This programme has 4 sessions a week, each with a theme of either 'off the ground', 'over a distance' or 'overhead'. The programme runs in 8 week cycles with a 60% bias of either 'Gymnastics', 'Strength' or 'Barbell Cycling' continuous throughout the year.
Members do not have to follow the More Than Human Programme but it is available to them as a resource to use. We encourage its use as it provides a resource to inform our members of the purpose behind movements prescribed and the intended outcomes of the training undertaken, empowering them in the process to understand their own fitness needs. Having this kind of structure which can be adapted to all abilities to achieve a shared purpose helps us to grow the community aspect of our organisation.
Scale the Heights members can access More Than Human Programme as part of their membership. It can also be subscribed to by non-members and followed remotely at www.morethanhumanuk.com
Our movements and programming consider a hierarchy of priorities we feel is significant to our purpose.
