Training clients with Joint Replacements is designed to help the fitness professional or personal trainer become more confident in dealing with joint replacement clients and also clients dealing with major degenerative joint issues.
Currently, over 7 million Americans are living with joint replacements of the knee or hip, so fitness professionals definitely need to be comfortable working with them.
Balance Matters Course
Want to offer more creative balance training options for your clients with quicker results?
We all know balance matters, but choosing the right exercise and feedback also matters to progress balance and optimize motor performance.
Learning concepts include:
✅ EXPAND BALANCE TRAINING with a more in depth understanding of how to be more specific and progress balance exercises with new cues and tips.
✅ MASTER new exercise options to incorporate into your balance circuits and motivate your clients toward greater improvements.
✅ LEARN how to design a balance exercise to be “just right” for your client to be in “Goldilocks zone.” If an exercise is too easy, your client will not see the benefits; if it’s too hard, they may lose confidence, self-efficacy, and motivation to continue.
