Welcome –

This is an online supplement to the live course you are taking. You must get a coupon code from your instructor to register for this course. If you are taking the live course you have paid for the live course and should NOT pay for access to the online materials. Get the code from your instructor.

If you plan on doing the full Flexibility and Corrective Exercise Specialist Certificate, you must complete and pass all the quizzes in this online course. If you just attend the live course, you will get your continuing education units from the live course but without taking the quizzes provided online, you will not be eligible for the Flexibility and Corrective Exercise Specialist Certificate.

These intensive and detailed workshops are a must for fitness professionals working with post-rehab clients or designing flexibility and corrective exercise programs to complement strength and cardiovascular training. A neuro-biomechanical perspective serves as the basis for flexibility testing and prescription to create balanced bodies that can stand up to the stresses of repetitive exercise.

Workshops explore the biomechanics, motor control, testing, stretching, injuries, kinetic chain, and training of the lower extremity, upper extremity, and torso. Application to post-rehab, pre-habilitation, and corrective exercise prescription will be emphasized. Participants receive hands-on experience with flexibility testing and stretching techniques as well as lecture material to guide trainers in the proper application of the assessment and training techniques covered. For those committed to learning for a lifetime, these workshops offer a way to hone skills, explore new techniques, and enjoy the process of learning in a community of peers.

Details:

The full program is comprised of 3 courses (each of which are held over the course of a weekend). You have the option to take only course 1 or course 2, independently, without taking the other, and without proceeding to the certificate weekend. You will receive CEUs for the course you register for and complete.

For those who are interested in achieving the Flexibility & Exercise Specialist Certificate, you must take both FoF1 and FoF2 in order to proceed to the final weekend and culminate with the Certificate. You have the opportunity to receive a discount and pay only $825 if you sign up for all 3 courses at once on or before the early registration deadline which is April 30, 2017.*

$295 early registration discount available until April 15, 2017

$295 early registration discount available until August 26, 2017

$295 early registration discount available until November 12, 2017
For those who are interested in only the first or second course and are not interested in the Certificate: you can click on title for the individual class you are interested in to read more and register for that course. CEUs will be awarded for individual courses.

*For those who are interested in the full program: you have the opportunity to sign up for all 3 courses at once by April 30, 2017 and pay only $825 for the entire program. The deadline for this promotion is April 30, 2017 — after which the price below will be reset. There is no prorating if you sign up for one at a time (i.e. if you want to wait until after taking the first 2 courses to decide whether you’d like to advance to the certificate, you can wait to register and pay either $295 if you sign up before November 12 or $325 if you sign up after November 12).
