Move 4 Life has been working with warehouse workers for more than 10 years and we constantly hear forklift drivers speak about neck and shoulder pain. MOVE Training has helped thousands of people change the way they drive a forklift truck and we have heard again and again of reduced ache, strain and pain after applying what they learn.

At Move 4 Life, our interest in habits is both old and new.
Old in a sense that everything we do is based on influencing movement habits. We spend a considerable amount of time helping employees to become aware of their movement habits (or autopilots as we like to refer to them) and then implementing a system to change those that need changing.
It is new in the sense that some ground-breaking wearable devices that really pave the way in habit generation (or habit hacking as the young ones would put it) have reignited my interest in the latest research.
