This 2-day Functional Trainer Course is for certified personal trainers and other health care professionals who wish to expand their knowledge and skills in helping clients train for function improvement while using the traditional equipment generally available to them at Fitness Centres.

This course is broken down into lecture and practical training and will cover topics such as:

  • Neural, Muscular and Skeletal Anatomy
  • Identifying Movement Patterns
  • Posture Analysis
  • Functional Movement Assessment
  • The Principles of Functional Training Design
  • Continuum of Progression – from basic strength exercises to complex multi-planar movements

By the end of this course, you will understand how to assess your clients’ movement ability, or lack of it, and to improve those movements by progressively building from traditional exercises to functional training exercises while using whatever equipment is available to you. This in turn will provide you with database of knowledge and exercises, which in turn will keep your clients motivated, stimulated, and injury free, for years to come
