1-day lecture workshop for Fitness & Movement Professionals that covers the fundamental musculoskeletal mechanics of anatomy and physiology (kinesiology) for fitness trainers and other movement professionals, including Pilates and yoga instructors.

The topics covered are:

  • Basic kinesiology terminology
  • Bones and major bony landmarks of the body
  • Joint mechanics and review of the major joints of the body
  • Muscle function, including concentric, eccentric, isometric (stabilization), open- and closed-chain contraction scenarios
  • Fascia and myofascial meridians
  • Nervous system control
  • The underlying biomechanical principles are discussed and applied to exercise and movement.

The approach of this workshop is to teach from the perspective of critical thinking so the trainer/instructor can creatively apply their exercise techniques with their clients.
