    "I have gained a better understanding of the different types of bad postures and a wider array of techniques to combat them from the GMP Fitness Posture Analysis Specialist. I like that these techniques can be used and adapted for all ages and ability levels. I intend to incorporate more G ball training into clients workouts; particularly the stretches. With my clients that have postural issues I can now incorporate a rehabilitative program into their training as well. It was very good. I found the information useful.”

    The best part of this course was that the instructor provides a whole series of exercises for each of 4 specific posture challenges. This will be incredibly useful in helping individual clients feel more confident and pain-free!

    It's a simple, basic, yet thorough postural assessments and corrections protocol for common deviations that will hinder someone maximizing their health and fitness. I’ll use it to assess and spot postural deviations, then recommend the exercises that will correct them as part of an overall health/fitness program. It was easy to follow, clear in its instruction, and thorough in the processes that it recommends.

    “I work with an older population. They have many muscle imbalances and alignment issues. I learned many ways to help to correct some of the most common problems I see, e.g. flat S Curve, Tight Hip flexors, elevated hip, rounded back and shoulders, etc. Specifically, I have a tennis player with tight hip flexors on one side. Many of my clients have Parkinson's disease. Their disease causes kyphosis, often times. I shall be working with a number of the recommended exercises for them. I am excited to implement the material that is contained in the course. It is clearly presented. Everything is logically done. The demonstrations and directions are easily followed. The conditions that they help to remedy are also well stated.”

    This is a great course if you want more information on how to correct different types of postures and additional exercises and stretches to help correct them. I would definitely recommend this course if you're looking for more information on posture analysis and correction. Definitely is useful for myself as well as clients.
