    Recent research indicates that one of the main reasons people seek assistance from health and fitness professionals is to alleviate musculoskeletal pain so they can participate in exercise programs and enjoy daily activities. The BioMechanics Method® Corrective Exercise Specialist course gives you all the assessment, anatomy, corrective exercise and program design skills and knowledge necessary to successfully help clients plagued by muscle and joint pain caused by musculoskeletal imbalances.


    The BioMechanics Method® Corrective Exercise Specialist online course was created for health and fitness professionals by world renowned corrective exercise expert Justin Price. Based on The Biomechanics Method® corrective exercise educational program, the course is ideal for those who want to help themselves and their clients eliminate pain and improve function. Professionals who have earned this corrective exercise credential are sought after for their unique ability to help people eradicate pain and regain or continue active lifestyles.


    You have two options in becoming a Corrective Exercise Specialist: complete this five-module course or pursue the same educational material in three separate courses. The second option is best for health and fitness professionals who want an introduction to the material and are not yet ready to commit to the entire corrective exercise specialist course, want to finish the course at a more leisurely pace, or simply want to better their knowledge in corrective exercise without becoming a specialist.

    The five-module specialist course includes:

    1. The Fundamentals of Structural Assessment
    2. Understanding Muscles and Movement
    3. The Fundamentals of Corrective Exercise
    4. Corrective Exercise Program Design
    5. The Complete Exercise Library

    Each module consists of a digital textbook, a video and an online quiz. To ensure you learn the material in the step-by-step manner in which it is designed, you must complete the learning modules and quizzes in the order listed below. You will have access to all five learning modules at once but should only commence working on subsequent modules once you have successfully completed the one before it. Multiple-choice quizzes for each module are delivered in a convenient, online format.

    Upon successful completion of all modules, you will obtain certificate status signifying your competency as a Corrective Exercise Specialist in The BioMechanics Method®. A certificate will be issued by The BioMechanics Method®. This credential does not expire. Purchase price includes all online materials, unlimited test retakes and the course itself.  Course must be completed within 12 months of purchase.

    For health and fitness professionals, The BioMechanics Method® Corrective Exercise Specialist course is equivalent to 8.0 ACE CECs.

    This is a course that I honestly feel should be added as a requirement to be a personal trainer. It was so informative and well done. A definite for anyone new to the profession like myself or for someone who is dealing with people with a lot of pain issues or injuries.

    There are very key ideas here that can help every fitness expert. I find that I am able to help people with their posture in my yoga classes even more now. The tests, however, need to be updated. They often included cases that were not covered in the vidoes or readings, and I believe that they may have been old and redone but not updated in the tests.


    ACE RESPONSE:  Thank you for your feedback Jessica!  An ACE staff member will be in touch soon regarding the case studies.

    Overall the course was a good review of knowledge most trainers should already have, but may not exhibit all of the time. I liked the simplification TBMM used for analysis of issues, the review of muscles I do not refer to frequently with my current client base, and the corrective patterning explained through the course. If I am being 100% honest, I would have been upset had I purchased the program full price, and not with the discount offered by ACE at the time. This is by no means an attack on the program, or meant to be disrespectful, but I do not believe the course is incredibly advanced or equivalent to cost what it typically does. I feel this program is a great next step for those just entering the field, as well as those caught up in "trend" type fitness as opposed to addressing issues and developing a sound program that will get results safely and effectively. At the end of the day, I do recommend this program.

    The 'video' presentations were OK Justin Price is a good presenter. I feel he tried to teach too much, too fast. The tests seemed irrelevant and disjointed in presentation.

    Content very well presented, easy to comprehend. Have been using the strengthening exercises myself, and they are spot on. Am beginning to use the techniques learned with clients, and results are quick. Thank you for an excellent program. I will be looking into the level 2 at a future date.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this course as it was very well laid out, the videos were easy to follow and the information provided is invaluable. Before I even completed the course I was using the exercises I learnt for my current clients and I couldn't believe how well they responded.

    I think this course is absolutely amazing. It definitely breaks down the mechanics for the users to understand physiology. The only reason why it wasn't a 5 star was because of the online materials. For those who learn better with hard copy readings, it will be a difficult transition because the pdf files are locked for editing and printing due to copyright reasons. This is an amazing course overall and I definitely recommend it.


    ACE RESPONSE:  Thank you for your feedback Qui, glad to hear you enjoyed the course!

    The TBMM level 1 course is a wonderful way to help trainers assist clients in navigating muscle and joint pain. I purchased the course in December and I am already applying the techniques with my current clients with positive results. It's the next right step if you are serious about helping clients educate themselves about their bodies and how quickly they can resolve pain and imbalances.


    ACE RESPONSE:  Thank you for your feedback Susan!  We are happy to hear you are finding this course useful and are able to apply it to your training and clients.

    I have been moving in the direction of helping people return from injury, illness or the negative impacts of "life" versus working only with healthy populations. This course has given me the confidence to address the underlying, fundamental structural issues that affect my current and prospective clients. It was well presented in a clear, step-by-step manner and I have been able to use the information from each module right away - not only with my clients but to also address my own imbalances. This was one of the best investments I have made in myself to better serve my community. I highly recommend this course!

    This course is a must for every fitness instructor. I am both certified as a personal trainer and Pilates instructor. Biomechanics are so important in all fields of fitness. I feel its a must for Pilates instructors. You will not be disappointed in this course. It will enhance your knowledge and skill in being able to help people succeed.

    This course is extremely valuable in my personal training business. I have implemented the program and am having a lot of client success. I feel more confident to help those clients in pain and feel that the course is well taught. It is one of the most in depth courses I have taken, but well worth the time and energy to learn!

    I purchased this program with the DVDs + books and am amazed by the structural organization of this educational program. The content is a gain for every personal trainer or anybody who is interested in a self-care corrective exercise program for family, friends and yourself. The speed in Justin's dvd program is pretty up-tempo, to be honest, and you might use the "pause" button now and then. If you are a visual learner, the DVDs will be a big plus in understanding the material. The whole program gave me sophisticated fundamental knowledge in the corrective exercise field including assessment and systematic approaches. Thank you.

    I am training a number of clients presenting with "aches and pains" and as well as some who have just been released from physical therapy. I am already utilizing many of the exercises taught and clients are seeing improvements. Great course!

    TBMM Level 1 course has provided me with extensive knowledge that allows me to better assist my clients in functional movement AND athletic performance enhancement. As an Olympic Weightlifter, it has helped me tighten up my positions for both the Snatch and C&J, adding 6kg to each! My runners run more efficiently, my basketball players jump higher, and my senior clients aren't complaining of "aches and pains" anymore! This is knowledge that EVERY trainer should have. Thanks a lot TBMM!

    Gets you up to speed quickly! Help clients move more efficiently with less pain. The BioMechanics Level 1 course has been incredibly helpful in providing me the knowledge to identify and correct common movement deviations with people of various fitness levels. The BEST part is that it gets you up to speed to address a majority of movement issues faster and for thousands of dollars less than more comprehensive programs teaching functional movement over a period of years and for a massive financial investment and often including travel and on-site time - an unrealistic investment for many fitness pros.

    Taking The BioMechanics Method course has been the best thing that I have done in years both for myself and my clients. It’s incredible to be able to alleviate many common pains and help people to move better so that they can do the things they enjoy. The course is great. Justin has taken what could be complicated material and presented it in such a fashion that it is easy to understand and apply. In the short time that I’ve been “experimenting” with my new knowledge I’ve been amazed at the responses that I’m getting. People tell me, “You are more knowledgeable and have been more helpful than both my physician or chiropractor.” Others have told me they’ve tried everything from physical therapist, acupuncture and corrective shoes, but for the first time, with the BioMechanics Method exercises, they are finally getting relief from their pain. How wonderful is that!!
