This course has been designed to provide participants the tools and a systematic approach to maintain and improve the health of your joints and the tissues that support them. At the Onnit Academy, we would argue that having the tools to positively impact yourself and others with a comprehensive joint health program is likely to provide the greatest return on investment of any physical activity.

Why is joint health so important?

Inevitably, each of us is subjected to the experience of aging and its detrimental impact on quality of life. The degradation of joint and tissue health are a large part of what leads to the increase in chronic pain and reduction in function that people experience. The Onnit Academy Durability Course is designed to provide a roadmap to improving joint function, pain-free range of motion and quality of movement through the use of several complimentary restorative modalities.

Learning Objectives

The Onnit Academy Durability Course teaches participants to:

• Apply the Body Mapping process as a tool to regularly assess the current state of various joints and tissues.

• Understand the impact of fascial health on longevity and performance.

• Utilize ground based drills to help increase strength and skill in targeted movement skills.

• Develop a systematic approach to Decompression as an integral part of a performance enhancement program

• Release unwanted restrictive tension through the practice of a Restorative Mobility practice.

• Incorporate drills that enhance the Elastic Recoil of the fascial and connective tissues to enhance movement efficiency.

• Target and prioritize specific pockets of tense tissue with a simplified self care massage system.


Resilience can be defined as the ability to return to original form or state after being stressed. Whether that stress is physical such as bending, stretching or compressing or is the result of illness, adversity or other uncontrollable stimulus, our ability to return to a state of function quickly is determined by our level of resilience.

Recovery is often defined as the act or process of returning to a normal state after a period of difficulty. For the purposes of its use in relation to the Durability Course, recovery is an act AND a process that facilitates a return to a normal state. Active recovery is the focus of the various facets of the coursework and the continued investment of time and energy in this process results in an increase in the attribute of resilience.


• No prerequisite required to attend this Foundational course of the Onnit Academy Longevity & Performance System.

What are the keys to a high quality life?

• Courage in the face of intense challenge.
• Tenacity to improve each and every day.
• Adaptability to spring back efficiently from setbacks.
• Stamina over the course of a day, a year, a lifetime.

All qualities that are encompassed by Durability; the capacity to resist wear & tear so you can operate at a consistently high level over the long haul. It doesn’t matter how strong, powerful, fast or skilled you are, if you are always too worn out, in pain or injured to keep going at your optimal potential.

This is where the Onnit Academy Durability Course comes in. Focusing significantly on high quality movement in support of health, longevity and optimal performance. The Onnit Academy Durability Certification serves as a foundational pillar in that endeavour. Providing everyone not only tools and methods to effectively apply, but a refined lens of perspective in understanding how the body works.

The relationship of recovery and resilience in training offers the means to excel in your chosen activity over the long term. While at the same time bridging your access to more you might be interested in discovering.

We cover:

• Mobility
• Stability
• Flexibility

And the role they play in the structural integration of the body for ongoing access to movement potential.

We address:

• Body mapping
• Myofascial influence in training
• Pattern activation
• Decompression
• Tension release
• Recoil

While the presentation of these topics can lend themselves to a lecture heavy seminar, the opposite is true here. The Onnit Academy Durability Certification Is very hands on. You will be moving constantly throughout, gaining the tools and methods for applying what you have learned immediately for expedient results. Not only with your clients and classes, but in your own training as well.

A major challenge in the incorporation of effective durability in training is the tendency to think recovery requires lots of extra work on top of the “main training” already being done. This certification looks at how to incorporate the Durability work into your regular training, to bring all the benefits it has to offer without creating an excessive drain on your time.

Doing so provides you:

• The energy to keep operating in a state of high quality.
• Significantly diminishes the pain you live with.
• Drastic reduction in injury occurrence potential.

And even if unforseen pain or injury should come, giving you the tools to bounce back quickly. To resiliently perform in an elevated state with enduring longevity, whether personally or professionally, IS the sign of an Optimized Life.
