Jon Mangogna started his journey into functional fitness at the early age of 5, in the form of the Japanese Martial Art of Judo, which continued through disciplined training and competitive circuit for the next 13 years resulting in a United States Judo Association 3rd Degree brown belt. Another early age start in the world of surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, and anything involving high energy, excitement, challenge, and balance lead to the lifetime love of movement that he still pursues today. With Nosara as a home base he still travels the world learning, teaching, working, and playing in the world of movement and physical therapy. Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Foundation Training Instructor, Certified TRX Coach, and continuous guidance from pioneering practitioners in the field of wellness has Jon ready for anything: from your normal sweat sessions and sports performance, all the way to physical therapy, rehabilitation, and brain balancing. Weaving together your body’s ecosystems to enhance human performance.
FOUNDATION TRAINING is a series of biomechanically designed exercises based in three powerful principals: anchoring the pelvis (the human body’s main fulcrum of movement), decompression breathing (expanding and elevating the ribcage), and muscle integration (how much muscle can we connect and draw into any given task).
Foundation training works at any level, at any age, and has been time tested to see drastic results in sports performance, preventing injury, and helping to manage and even eliminate chronic pain. Whether you are looking to get in shape for your surf adventure, take your surfing to the next level, or feel revitalized for your next session, Foundation Training is key to achieve your goal.
