Ortho-Kinetics® “Professional” Trainer: Ortho-Kinetics® PTr
This course begins with helping students to become familiar with the highly integrated structure and function of the human body. We believe that acquiring a deep knowledge of how the body was designed to move is critical for learning how to optimally assess, program and train to improve overall movement and bio-motor abilities. This course provides a foundation for learning Advanced Assessment Methods and develops an understanding of the science and art of effective exercise programming. This course focuses primarily on teaching students to begin to master new corrective and performance based exercises along with the endless techniques, modifications and progressions necessary to address the individual needs and variety of goals of all their clients.
Ortho-Kinetics® “Specialist” Trainer: Ortho-Kinetics® STr
Specialists should have completed and tested out of the Ortho-Kinetics® “Professional” Trainer program if interested in actual “certification” as opposed to continuing education. The “Specialist” course will empower trainers with advanced assessment methods and teach them to use this information to better select, group and organize specific exercises into effective corrective and performance based programs. The ability to provide a comprehensive assessment and discover a client’s or patient’s present level of joint function, muscular imbalances, postural deviations, and movement pattern compensations is critical for accurately design appropriate exercise routines. This course will also continue to add new proprietary exercises to expand trainer’s programming options and better address the specific needs and performance goals for their clients.
