Along with an in-depth knowledge of posture, the student will take away the ability to assess posture and prescribe individualised and specific postural improvement programs.

Who should take this course?

  • Anyone who administers exercise to clients and wants to reduce injury rates and improve movement quality.
  • Anyone who works with athletes in a sporting setting and would like to improve their performance and output.
  • Anyone who works with clients with musculo-skeletal issues (joint or muscular pain) and would like to learn the basics of injury treatment and prevention.

    This course really gets back to the basics on which every client’s program should be based. i liked the way it progressed from the simple stuff to much more detail on what to do to improve a client’s posture. Really got me thinking about how I can use this to improve my programming.
