CORRECTIVE EXERCISE TRAINING
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.
Why Corrective Exercise is Needed
As a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT), it's important to realize that just about every client you work with could be susceptible to common injuries and ailments, ranging from low-back pain to ACL tears to shoulder pain.
$50 billion is spent on treating lower back pain in the U.S. annually.1
14% of people will experience neck pain or problems.2
21% of people will experience shoulder pain.3,4.
Musculoskeletal conditions cost $213 billion in direct and indirect expenses annually in the U.S. alone.5
THESE STAGGERING NUMBERS ESTABLISH A NEED FOR FITNESS PROFESSIONALS TO HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS TO WORK WITH THEIR CLIENTS TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURIES AND KEEP THEM COMING BACK TO ACHIEVE THEIR FITNESS GOALS.
