Corrective Exercise Continuum

Corrective Exercise Continuum

The NASM Corrective Exercise Specialization (NASM-CES) is a proven program that can be applied to reduce muscular dysfunction and help your clients move, feel and live better. 

The NASM-CES teaches you how to use a variety of static and dynamic assessments to identify imbalances and use the results to design effective programs for your clients with the Corrective Exercise Continuum (CEx).

The CEx is a simple yet highly effective four-step process fitness professionals can use with their clients and athletes to improve, and ultimately, correct common movement compensations.
