Stable Hips, Balanced Life

When it comes to issues associated with unstable hips, the good news is that simple exercises, when applied correctly, can bring relief from chronic pain and positively impact your clients’ quality of life.

This 2-hour course covers function, assessment, and alignment of the hip complex. Led by John Lindala, a biomechanics specialist with a Master of Science in Performance Enhancement and Injury Prevention, you’ll learn how misalignment of the hips can impact the surrounding joints and tissues, as well as performance of the ankle, knee, and spinal column.

You’ll also be guided through a 5 phase workout program designed to relieve pain and poor alignment throughout the hip complex. With phases, that include hip flexion, hip extension, hip abduction, hip adduction, and dynamic tension, the theory behind the workout program and each specific exercise will be explained, ensuring that you’ll be well-equipped with a tool to use with future clients. From active agers to athletes, this course will prepare you to help restore movement and balance into the lives of clients through hip health.

Upon completion, you will be able to:

  • Understand how hip function directly affects performance of the ankle, knee, and spinal column
  • Assess asymmetries of the hip and apply strategic training techniques to correct form and function
  • Balance and stabilize the soft tissue affecting alignment of the hip complex through exercise
  • Develop individualized workout plans for clients to address issues related to hip stabilization


Good course, good instructions, very comprehensive and helpful

Love this course!

I took the test like 17 times before I passed and worked on it for 2 days after watching the videos multiple days. Not recommended.

It was very informative. However, too many of the exercises are performed in a bridge position with no alternatives offered. This makes them either inaccessible or extremely uncomfortable for people whose body structure or injury history makes this a contraindicated position.
