Course Begins: January 25th, 2021 / 8am PT
Instructor: Dr. Kelly Starrett & Dr. Sean McBride
The course features two full days of online instruction via zoom with Dr. Kelly Starrett and Dr. Sean McBride. Instruction begins at 8:00 a.m. PT. Students will also receive a course manual to follow during the training.
(Note: all times are Pacific Time.)
In order to pass the course, students must attend both lessons and also complete two multiple-choice tests.
Also, once you complete the 102 course, you are allowed to attend the course again for free whenever you like.
So if you attend the online 102 course now, you would be able to attend an in-person version of the course at a later date. (You would be responsible for your own travel and lodging costs, though.)
The Ready State 102: TRS Coach’s Course expands and builds upon the principles of our Movement & Mobility 101 Course based on Dr. Kelly Starrett's system of resolving mechanically based musculoskeletal pain, preventing injury, and optimizing athletic movement and performance.
Coaches have the most access and insight into the movement competency and incomplete mechanics of their athletes and clients and are often the only person privy to their overuse aches and mechanically-based pain. Yet these coaches typically aren’t prepared or trained to manage movement restrictions and simple movement based pain problems. This creates a gap where the athlete or client either:
Ignores their movement restriction or dysfunction problem until it becomes so severe that they are forced to seek formal medical care, or
Stops the offending movement or activity hoping that the problem spontaneously resolves.
The TRS Coach’s Course aims to fill this gap in knowledge and experience. The movement and performance coach must become the first responder in helping an athlete or client understand a sound course of action regarding the resolution of movement based dysfunction. In order to provide cogent movement instruction towards continued athletic development, we need to more closely conjoin the stimulus for athletic physical adaption, the dynamic and ongoing movement diagnostic process, and the management of movement related problems at the point at which movement instruction is actually delivered, like the track, gym, court, or field. Only the working coach is adequately positioned to fill this need and complete the cycle of athletic performance and athlete care.
After years of teaching the foundations of Movement & Mobility, the overwhelming feedback from coaches and athletes has been a desire for more advanced instruction and application. The 102 Course is our answer and will provide coaches with systematic movement assessment as well as advanced techniques in mobilization, down-regulation, perfusion, and programming. The course is two full days, and includes a detailed Course Manual with background science, safety, and advanced programming.
The goal of our Movement & Mobility 101 Course is to make the invisible visible. The goal of this course is to make the invisible quantifiable. Attendees will learn a complete system of movement assessments for the spine, upper and lower body. Athletes and coaches looking for a deeper appreciation of the science of movement and how to improve it will learn how to see movement through the eyes of an advanced movement practitioner.

You must have already purchased and completed the Movement & Mobility 101 online course (or our previous CrossFit Mobility course). If you have already taken the 101 and have trouble purchasing the 102, please contact [email protected] and we will get your account setup for the 102.
If you have not yet taken the 101 you can purchase the course here, or save and purchase both the 101 & 102 as a bundle here.
The in-person Movement & Mobility 102 Course costs $1,099. So to reflect that you will not be able to meet or interact with our instructors in person, the online virtual version of the course is only $799. And you will still be able to attend a live version of the course for free in the future if you’d like.
You will need an active internet connection. And note that streaming two days of live video will use a significant amount of data. So make sure your data plan will allow for that.
We recommend you use a laptop or tablet to access the course materials. In our experience, smartphones often do not have the processing power to give students a seamless video feed.
The webinar is held on the Zoom platform. We highly recommend familiarizing yourself with Zoom before joining the live webinar to avoid running into connection trouble and missing part of the webinar.
For the webinar, you will need the following:
- Personal electronic device meeting Zoom system requirements, with camera, microphone, and active internet connection (laptop or tablet preferred)
- The Zoom platform downloaded on your device
- Suitable clothes for working out
- Two lacrosse balls taped together, peanut, or a MobilityWOD Gemini
- A single lacrosse ball
- A VooDoo Floss Band
- A larger ball like a softball, MobilityWOD Supernova, or a rubber princess ball like you’d find at a drug store.
- A green jump stretch band or friend with a green jump stretch band (a bike tube will work in a pinch but we encourage you to have a proper band).We think the most universally useful band is the Green Rogue Monster Band.
- A scraping tool
- A dowel, PVC pipe, broomstick, or similar object
- Paper and pen to take notes
Most of these items can be found at:
Also, if you can safely have a partner join you for some or all of the webinar, it will help you get more out of the course. Practicing the techniques from the course in real-time will increase your retention and understanding of the material.
But please only seek out a partner who you can safely be in close contact with for two days.
How and when are certificates delivered?
Once you attend both days training and pass both multiple choice tests, your certificate will automatically be available for you to download.
