COURSE: Contraindications to Exercise

Two day course

Injury is the number one reason why clients stop training – and your program could be causing these injuries or making them worse.

Knowing how to identify when a client can and can’t do certain movements can be the difference between getting results and an injury slump. Often it’s not the big injuries that cause problems, but small niggles that become worse and reduce motivation. This course will give you a great platform to prevent injury to keep you clients training longer with you and achieving greater results.

What you’ll walk away with:

  • Knowledge on the principles of injury and prevention of injury
  • A better understanding of dysfunctional movements commonly seen in gym populations
  • A basic understanding of the role of stabilisers, agonist/antagonist imbalance in normal functional movements and what they mean
  • Greater knowledge for working with exercise physiologists and physiotherapists at a higher level with rehabilitation and advanced functional programs
