CEUs: NASM – 1.9; ACE 2.0

Corrective Exercise is one of the most important components of a comprehensive exercise program. Regardless of athletic ability or fitness level, almost every person has some degree of dysfunction that increases the chance for injury. This could include muscle imbalances, decreased flexibility, or lack of core and joint stability. Leading fitness professionals should be able to identify these dysfunctions and create an integrated corrective exercise training program to help their clients remain injury free.

"This was a very helpful course that was organized so well and gave me a much better insight to what I was learning. The extra materials, videos, and exercise library were extremely beneficial to my learning experience. WOULD RECOMMEND!"
- Kiera H, MO

"CES is essential if someone wants to expand their knowledge and their abilities and earning into another level. Delving deeper into muscular imbalances a pt will learn how to incorporate corrective measures all the while further enabling him/herself to observe movement dysfunctions."
- Marios K, UK

"Very comprehensive and in depth. Highly recommend this course."
- John J, NY

"The course was engaging, insightful and in depth. Adds an extra level to if you're a personal trainer. Add the value of clients physical longevity to your sessions as well as just short and long term fitness goals. Also, it's just generally an interesting course if you have an interest in anatomy and physiology. The final exam was as hard if not harder than some of the exams I've had as part of my degree in BSc Sports Science but well worth it."
- Jake M, UK

"The CES course reignited my passion for corrective exercise."
