Description

A fundamental trait we all share is the ‘need to move.’ In fact, for almost all species, survival is predicated upon this ability – to find food, water, shelter and even a mate. This notion is supported by an endless volume of research effectively demonstrating how movement, physical activity and exercise that can all extend longevity (1). Essentially, individuals who move more often increase their longevity potential whereas sedentary individuals experience rapid deteriorations in their overall well-being and will ultimately cease to exist.

If you work with clients who want to move safely (and get results), this course is for you. In Movement for Health, Functionality and Longevity, Fabio Comana refreshes the foundational concepts of movement and teaches you to become a movement specialist.

You will learn:

  • The relationships between stability and mobility in the kinetic chain
  • How to conduct and interpret key movement screens
  • Programming protocols that are safe, effective and provide results

Plus, you’ll master five key movement patterns and learn how to coach them.
