About Force of Nature Training

 

Force of Nature is the culmination of years of learning traditional strength training, martial arts, dance physiology and neurology.

Fuerza Natural Principles:

  • You adapt to what and how you do things... always.

  • Complexity is the enemy of execution

  • Habits are stronger than motivation

  • Cultivate a positive emotional relationship to moving your body

  • There are no bad exercises, just badly prescribed ones

  • Leave some fuel in the tank

If you are always going "all out" and are chronically drained and sore, your body doesn't learn to be resourceful and efficient, useful traits in everything in life. On the other hand, slower movement leads to more control and precision, you feel energized, and your risk of injury goes down. You need to keep the individual in mind, not everyone moves the same, has the same injuries, has the same proportions or weight. 

I saw the common themes in many disciplines, therefore I structured my method to slowly and sustainably build someones athleticism and confidence in their body. 

You are stronger than you think, you have all the answers you seek,
we just have to unleash our inner nature!

About Rodrigo Fernandez.jpg

Welcome! I'm Rodrigo, if you're here its because you probably want to know a bit more about me and my skills as a practitioner.

I've studied all sorts of really great holistic health, rehab, strength and movement stuff from the best trainers, therapists and osteopaths out there. I invest a ton of my time into continuing education and being the best movement and health coach I can be.

I am originally from Monterrey, Mexico, I grew up doing martial arts and contact sports and always sought out multidisciplinary approaches to movement and health. I was never very athletic but I was always willing to try. I now feel athletic, I can move better than I did in my early 20's. I currently live in the San Francisco bay area, I moved here to challenge myself and to surround by some of  the best trainers and practitioners in the world. My priorities are to provide the most amount of value for myself and my clients, to be a one stop shop for any and all things health and fitness related.

My practice includes but is not limited to:

  • Strength and conditioning (kettlebells, barbells,bodyweight, gymnastics)

  • Back pain relief and postural exercises

  • Corrective exercises (injuries, post or pre surgery)

  • Flexibility and mobility

  • Athletic and rhythm development

  • Nutrition coaching for performance or fat loss

  • Awareness and proprioception

  • Osteopathic manual therapy
