Training the basic steps and principles

The basic steps therefore form a crucial foundation that you should internalize. They will be repeated and practiced several times during the training course. You can repeat and practice the basic steps at any time in the training area under the "Movement" tab.

Movement units/training units
In the movement units, you will learn how to perform low-impact movements for typical movement sequences from your everyday work. The movements are divided into several steps to make it easier to learn the complex movements.

The structure of a movement training course is as follows:
