The first Level of the Integrated Corrective Exercise program, mediBall® Certification will provide practical skills and related scientific knowledge required to effectively assess your client’s functional capacity to exercise on a Swiss ball and instruct in a range of Swiss ball exercises. It is our aim to give participants a strong foundation on which to build their understanding, practice and instruction of Swiss ball exercises by providing a large practical component and a variety of models and techniques to conduct assessments. A certificate in health or fitness modality is a pre-requisite of this course.
