Posture and Corrective Exercise
The EPTI Advanced Posture and Corrective Exercise online course is ideal for existing personal trainers (with at least a REPS recognised Personal Trainer certificate or equivalent certificate) who wish to identify common faulty postures and integrate corrective exercise into clients programming.
Study and assessment for this qualification are completed online with tutor support. This course is CIMSPA endorsed and carries 10 CPD points.
This advanced qualification will increase the scope of practice of a personal trainer by providing you with a complete understanding of how to assess movement dysfunctions and remedy common postural imbalances (such as upper and lower crossed syndromes; layered syndrome and pronation distortion syndrome) through corrective exercise programme design and execution.
‘Modern day’ lifestyles are evolving in line with technological advancements. Specific postural faults are even being named after the technological activity that has caused it e.g. ‘text neck’.
By taking this qualification, you are not only giving yourself the knowledge to assist your current client base, but also getting ahead of the game ready for a huge increase in clientele requiring help and guidance with improving their posture due to these ‘evolving’ lifestyles.
"I'm very happy to have enrolled for this course as it was very interesting and informative. It has taught me ways to identify postural faults and what exercises can be done to correct them. I received all the support I needed when I had queries on other posture imbalances.
My clients at Fitness Farm will definitely be getting value added to their sessions as I have already started including such exercises into their workouts. This was my 2nd qualification with EPTI and I look forward to others!"
