SFT Routines

It is recommended that all users begin with SFT Basics before advancing to any of the other routines. Once you have mastered SFT Basics, you are ready for any of the other routines here. To maximize your injury prevention training, consistently rotate your SFT routines and train with Sugarfoot Therapy 3-5 times a week.

When practicing these exercises, keep in mind that you should never experience joint pain. Practice all exercises within a pain-free range of motion. For example, if you experience pain in your hip while practicing a squats exercise, try modifying by not squatting as deeply. Minimize your range of motion until you can perform the exercise without pain.

Directions for use:
Watch the complete video first, to ensure a solid understanding of proper form and technique. Then when you go to perform the routine in the studio or at the gym, download the “SFT Guide” pdf to jog your memory. You can print the pdf or pull it up on your smartphone for quick reference. You can also stream the video on your mobile device wherever you are working out.

These programs should not be used to treat any existing injury. If you are injured please consult with a medical professional.
