Help Clients Move Correctly Now to Train Properly Later

Helping clients of all skill levels, abilities and health conditions requires personal trainers to have an extensive understanding of the principles of human movement. Movement-based exercise—exercise considered as a series of integrated movement patterns as opposed to isolated muscle actions—is key to helping clients building the foundation necessary to take on a training program without injury.

This workshop will enable you to 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. Upon completion, you will know how to deliver a safe, effective program that adheres to the principles that dictate what the body does best—move.

You will learn:

  • 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
  • To describe how fascial structures function as integrated systems to accelerate, stabilize and decelerate movement
  • Techniques to develop and implement movement-based exercise programs to promote movement efficiency


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

Mr. Cosmo was a great instructor!

The training was in-depth, informative and educational. I've already begun to use the tools that I have learned to better train my clients. I prefer the hands-on, in-class setting.

My instructor Sam Berry was amazing!

This was a great workshop. One of my favorites. The teacher was excellent.
