Ortho-Kinetics® “Professional” Trainer: Ortho-Kinetics® PTr

PTR is our First Level Certification Course and the most significant step in transforming Personal Trainers into “ORTHO-KINETICS® TRAINERS”!
Awarded by IHRSA as the Industries’ “Most Comprehensive and Innovative Assessment and Training Program”!
This Proprietary System integrates Advanced Assessment Methods, a Patented Programming Process, Unique Corrective and Performance Exercise Training, and Specialized Manual Therapies to improve Function, enhance Fitness and achieve Optimal Performance! 

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

STR is our Second Level Certification Course that picks up from the PTR with more advanced study and application of Biomechanics and Neuro-Muscular Adaptation to further progress our Specialists’ Training Skills and Programming abilities.
The STR Course introduces and integrates our unique “Neuro-Muscular Stability Testing and Training Techniques”, (NST™), into our Proprietary Assessment, Training and Treatment System.
ORTHO-KINETICS® SPECIALISTS armed with NST™ along with their advanced Training and Programming Skills, are better equipped to Identify and Correct specific Joint Limitations and Muscular Imbalances and have become more successful at progressing their clients’ specific Bio-Motor Abilities as needed to surpass their fitness and performance goals!

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.

Ortho-Kinetics® “Elite” TrainerOrtho-Kinetics® ETr

ETR is our Third Level Certification Course that builds upon the knowledge base and significantly adds new Assessment, Training and Treatment Techniques to those learned and developed through their years working as  PROFESSIONAL (PTR) and SPECIALIST (STR) ORTHO-KINETICS® Trainers!
The ETR Course dramatically expands the SPECIALIST’S scope and skills use of their NST™ “Neuro-Muscular Stability Testing and Training Techniques”, (NST™), into our Proprietary Assessment, Training and Treatment System.
ORTHO-KINETICS® ELITE TRAINERS armed with NST™ along with their advanced Training and Programming Skills, are better equipped to Identify and Correct specific Joint Limitations and Muscular Imbalances and have become more successful at progressing their clients’ specific Bio-Motor Abilities as needed to surpass their fitness and performance goals!

Ortho-Mechan-X™ Trainer

A Specialized Certification Course that provides an In-Depth Biomechanical Analysis of both, “Man & Machine” to derive Specific Training Techniques and Strategies for Improving the Body’s Bio-Motor Abilities and Achieving Optimal Performance as Efficiently and Safely as Possible!
The ORTHO-MECHAN-X™ Modules 1-3 are primarily structured as a hands-on learning experiencing with over 70% of these modules consisting of practical training within the TELOS Fitness Center’s 7200 sq. foot “COLOSSEUM” packed with Free Weights, Kettle Bells, Bands, Balls, other Specialized Training Tools, along with a large collection of the best training equipment from the Top Manufacturers in the Industry!
The 3 Modules can be stand-alone certifications and are dedicated to learning the “Science and Art of Exercise Programming”. Training Programs should be based on Science of the body’s physiological adaptations to different training stimulus, which are directly linked to the specific Neuro-Muscular responses and Bio-motor programming that the body is concurrently experiencing when performing any movement or exercise.
However, learning to design effective training programs that are customized for each client that can dramatically help to realign their Postural Deviations, restore optimal Joint Motion, correct their specific Muscular Imbalances and remedy their Movement Compensations is also an Art as much as a Science to be mastered over time through continued study and practical application!

    I am attending a Corrective Exercise workshop at the Telos Center March 2-3 and I saw the Ortho-Kinetics information on your website. I am very interested in learning more about this program and the 2019 dates of your workshops. The ones listed on the website are for 2017.

    Thank you,
    Lisa Clines
