We spend many hours exercising our bodies, but forget about our face!
Get your face into shape at your own pace!
This evidence-based online program has four parts that guide you through the underlying principles of Face Fit and provide you with the skills to monitor your progress.
With your subscription, you will have access to all course materials and instructional videos for 6 weeks. All videos can be watched indefinitely within the subscription period, allowing you the flexibility to suit your personal schedule.
Learning materials to accompany the program include a free workbook available to download during the course and keep as reference material after course completion.
At the end of the program, you’ll know how to recognise correct facial movements and how to optimise your facial features.
PART 1- Why do we look the way we look
Of course our genetics influence how we look, but that only takes us so far and it doesn’t define our facial destiny.
We are much more than the face we see on the outside – we have 6 layers between the skin and our skull underneath. Each layer has a specific role to play in how our face shapes and ages over our lifetime.
PART 2- The way we move
Moving our face and mouth properly directs what our face looks like – if you don’t move it, you lose it!
Our face forms its ongoing shape and support by our life health choices and circumstances and by how we breathe and move our face right from the moment we are born. Learn how our tongue and our nose are the two most important features of our facial ageing.
PART 3- Age related changes
Whether we like it or not, each year brings changes to our whole body. Our skin, muscles and bones change yearly from about 25-30 years old and our face is often the first place that we notice the changes.
Learn how and why this happens and how we can slow the effects of ageing.
PART 4 – 6 Steps of the Face Fit Functional Method
As the name suggests, this is not just a bunch of exercises. It’s called the functional method because every activity and exercise helps to ensure you’re not just doing spot exercises on isolated areas of your face, but you’re learning how to use your whole face and your breathing, chewing and swallowing muscles correctly – making sure the right muscles are being used for the right job.
Part 4 guides you through the 6 Steps to Facial Fitness, including over 25 different activities.
The program is based on the clinical knowledge of Cheree and Bridget combined with research that proves positive outcomes of facial exercise – no injections, no surgery, no expensive creams.
We have shared this unique Face Fit Functional Method with you so that you can Get your face into shape and benefit from learning these skills for the rest of your life!
