3-D Workout™

Volume I: The Basics

Volume II: Building on the Basics

Physical fitness programs and sequences utilizing the three dimensional space around your body

I put all the dimensions of space to work in my unique exercise program, 3-D Workout. Since we move in three-dimensions every day of our lives, we should have an exercise program that supports that type of movement. Most of the exercises at the gym are done in one dimension at a time. Some use almost no space behind the body and many are done while sitting. 3-D Workout is designed to use all the dimensions. In a short program, you get the basis for every movement in your daily life.

Moving from Within: A Training Manual eBook

A training manual for in-depth, whole-body movement

At long last, a training manual for Bartenieff Fundamentals of Movement, an in-depth approach to whole-body movement training – effective, safe, subtle!

The thing that really stands out and makes 3-D Workout so different from trending approaches, is that it actually organizes the body with regards to function. It seems that all the others are just doing movement for the sake of doing the movement, but 3-D actually has an inherent organizational and logical process.

Fitness should be age-appropriate and organic; it should be designed, not just copied from a book. 3-D exercises are designed using the space around the body (the kinesphere) rather than arbitrary, isolated joint movement. These whole-body exercises produce improved strength while activating the fascia (soft tissues) for whole-body connectivity, remodeling and function.
