  • Based on recent understandings about the fascial system, exercise should be considered as a series of integrated movement patterns as opposed to isolated muscle actions. That research has inspired us to create this new workshop, meant to replace our Functional Training & Assessment Workshop.  The new format will help you develop an understanding of integrated anatomy and learn coaching techniques for movement-based exercise that can help your clients reach their goals.  You’ll also review the science behind movement-based training and how to use the ACE Integrated Fitness Training® (ACE IFT®) model for exercise program design.

    You will learn:

    • To describe how fascial structures function as integrated systems to accelerate, stabilize and decelerate movement 
    • Postural assessments to identify compensated posture in all three planes of motion
    • Relationship between mobility and stability along the kinetic chain
    • Proper progressions for teaching integrated movement patterns 
    • To teach clients exercises based on primary movements of the human body
    • Techniques to develop and implement movement-based exercise programs to promote movement efficiency

    Please note that there are no pre-requisite educational requirements for the Movement-Based Exercise workshop.

    This is a great workshop that translate well for all levels of fitness- kids, teens, athletes, active older adults. We all need to understand how move safely within our frameworks. The workshop was engaging. We did several activities that included movement, which is great since most fitness profession don't sit all day. Sitting and listening to a long winded lecture is tough. You'll receive a nice blend of lecture, interaction, and movement. Don't miss this workshop!


    ACE RESPONSE:  Brook, we are happy to hear you enjoyed the workshop and it met your expectations!

    Our instructor, Chris McGrath was amazaing! For a course that went from 9am to 6:30pm, it was engaging all the way through. His attention to the program as well as going off path at times was very informative. Getting to know all the participants names was a plus for me as well. I learned a lot and to will use this knowledge to create more well rounded programs for my clients and students.
