Description

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

Upon succesfully completing this program, you will be able to:

  • Examine a step-by-step process for conducting musculoskeletal assessments that can be utilized with any client to identify underlying imbalances that may cause or contribute to muscle dysfunction and/or movement restrictions.
  • Evaluate 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.
  • Explain how gravity and ground reaction forces affect muscle function.
  • Compare 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.
  • Identify and choose the most appropriate corrective exercises for your client’s condition from a library of over 200 exercises
  • Design 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.

I like the format of AAHF program materials. I found the workbook and quizzes supplied very helpful to learn the material and prepare for the test. Thank you!

My AAHF course was comprehensive and well laid-out. It was also very succinct, easy to study for and very useful in day-to-day client programming.
