Description

The BioMechanics Method Corrective Exercise Specialist (TBMM-CES) course is the industry’s top-rated CES credential with specialists in over 60 countries. It consists of five distinct but interrelated educational modules that teach fitness professionals how to assess clients for musculoskeletal imbalances that can cause muscle dysfunction, joint discomfort and movement limitations and explains how to use corrective exercise to remedy those problems simply and effectively. Upon successful completion of this course, you will receive your CES credential and be recognized worldwide as a Corrective Exercise Specialist in The BioMechanics Method. You will have one year from the date of purchase to complete the course.

To earn your Corrective Exercise Specialist credential, you will complete an online comprehensive course that consists of five educational components:

  • The Fundamentals of Structural Assessment
  • Understanding Muscles and Movement
  • The Fundamentals of Corrective Exercise
  • The Complete Corrective Exercise Library
  • Corrective Exercise Program Design

You may choose to purchase individual modules instead of the compete course. Each module is recognized for individual CECs and must be completed within one year of purchase of the individual module. It is recommended that the course modules be completed in order to optimize the learning experience.

Research shows that almost 90 percent of people who currently utilize the services of health, fitness and exercise professionals services report having temporary or chronic musculoskeletal issues that prevent them from performing even low-level physical activities without experiencing pain (Schroeder and Donlin 2013). Studies also show that one of the fastest growing segments of the population joining gyms is the over-55 demographic, yet only about 50 percent of fitness and exercise professionals report having the appropriate skills to serve people with muscle or joint pain and other physically limiting musculoskeletal conditions (IHRSA 2017; Schroeder and Donlin 2013).

The BioMechanics Method Corrective Exercise Specialist Course helps fill this gap in care by educating students in musculoskeletal assessment, functional anatomy, corrective exercise selection and program design to increase their knowledge in this area of competence and improve their performance in applying these skills when working with clients in need.

Course Objectives

  1. A step-by-step process for conducting musculoskeletal assessments that can be used with any client to identify underlying imbalances that may cause or contribute to muscle dysfunction and/or movement restrictions.
  2. The root cause of a client’s dysfunction by determining which muscles and soft tissue structures have been affected by musculoskeletal imbalances and movement limitations.
  3. How gravity and ground reaction forces affect muscle function.
  4. The differences between three major types of corrective exercises: self-myofascial release, stretching, and strengthening and identify how and when to utilize, progress, and regress each exercise type when working with clients.
  5. How to select the most appropriate corrective exercises for your client’s condition from a library of over 200 exercises
  6. How to create corrective exercise programs that ensure maximum client participation and adherence by knowing what to do and not to do at each stage of the program design process to help clients reach their goals as effectively and efficiently as possible.
