Dr. Z's Foot Health Course
If you wear shoes, your feet need this.
Don’t let foot pain and weak feet be your achilles heel. Injuries like plantar fasciitis, flat feet, fallen arches, bunions, turf toe and achilles tendonitis will slow your life and limit your training.
The Foot Course is designed to help you strengthen and reclaim your foot function and prepare you for a life free of foot pain. Over the course of a decade of experience working with athletes of all disciplines, we have noticed one common denominator that determines the health and performance of the human body - the feet! Our connection with the ground is the most valuable, and often neglected, aspect of athleticism and the human experience
Transforming the way your foot functions is the most efficient and effective way of eliminating pain, correcting compensations, and empowering performance on the field, court, or pitch.
The Foot Course has been designed for anyone wanting to improve the overall strength and function of their feet. We look at all the common foot problems affecting our population today and why this has become such a problem in many people’s lives.

From there he will lead you through the movements and exercises he has used with his top tier athletes to improve and restore the overall function of the foot and address any specific foot problems as it relates to shoes and foot health.
The course can be accessed on multiple devices such as tablets, desktops or your phone with ease of access.

Dr. Matthew Zanis, owner of Rooted in MVMNT, is a human movement and vitality expert. Dr Zanis attained his bachelor’s in athletic training from the university of Pittsburgh and doctorate in physical therapy from Duke University. He is a strength and conditioning coach, orthopedic specialist, and fellowship trained in manual therapy. Dr. Zanis works with a broad demographic from Olympians to Navy Special Warfare and everyone in between. His vision is to create an awareness of new ways of working with the human body in rehabilitation, performance, and coaching circles, and bring that alive for strength and conditioning and rehabilitation professionals alike through a philosophy that is rooted in movement.
Rehabilitation and training for performance are one in the same. They may fall on different ends of the spectrum of athleticism, but the process of progression is identical. Rehabilitation is simply training in the presence of pain or discomfort. It’s about understanding your weaknesses, learning how to move your body well, and building capacity and durability with progressive overload to handle whatever life throws at you.
