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.
