This course is a two day comprehensive nuts and bolts program that integrates posture and movement mechanics as the basis for the development of effective programming for the fitness professional. Through proper static and movement evaluations, combined with the understanding of the genesis of injury through the pain/injury cycle, the trainer will be able to develop seamless and progressive programming to improve his or her clients functional flexibility, stability, balance, strength and coordination.
“The vast majority of injuries are as the result of long-standing weaknesses and imbalances,” said Dr. Ken Kaufman, Director at Sarasota Sports Medicine. “I look forward to sharing what I have discovered over the past 20 years in practice and with professional athletes for the past 6. Personal trainers are in a unique position to address these underlying weaknesses and imbalances and correcting them before someone has to come see me.”
Core objectives that attendees will acquire are: The participants will have an understanding of how the pain/injury cycle impacts movement mechanics setting the stage for injury. Participants will have practical knowledge to assess posture and functional movement in a client. Participants will be able to better guide their clients with the best methods to improve abnormal movement mechanics to increase stability and coordinated movement. Participants will have the communication tools to educate and motivate their clients through the process of injury prevention.
