I am Chris Severs, creator of the Anchor Point Training method, Trainer Certification program, the exercise tools and this Home Exercise Program for you. Since 2008 I have been passionately dedicated to patiently developing a better understanding and tools for functional training with anchored resistance. During these years of evolution I’ve worked with dozens of regular “Joes”, older adults, dedicated athletes, trainers and coaches in Rugby, MMA, Boxing, Football, and Hockey. I’ve worked with Ballet Masters and Physiotherapists, Doctors and Gym owners. During these years I developed, tested and refined many generations of suspension and elastic resistance tools.
This program is a culmination of many decades of sport, training, education and innovation. My understanding of training was driven by 40 years of competitive rugby. At the end of my rugby career I was recognized, at 56, as being the oldest competitive player in Canada. I learned a lot about functional fitness during these many seasons while rehabbing injuries and keeping my aging body athletic. I credit my longevity to training consistent variety in many functional dimensions. This is foundation of the Anchor Point Training methods and tools that I have developed. The strong fundamental benefits of Anchor Point Training (APT) make it effective, convenient, inexpensive and versatile. This approach is ideal for creating useful resistance for functional movement demands with anchored tools like suspension straps and resistance bands.
