As a personal trainer, your business depends on your client’s health and progress.
Being a successful personal trainer is actually really simple:
With a new or old client, every session is an opportunity to demonstrate that you will help them progress towards their goals while staying injury and pain-free.
But what if your client comes to you with a pre-existing injury or movement limitation?
What do you do to help them without injuring them further or letting their movement limitation hinder
Unfortunately, most personal training certifications do not address injuries or movement limitations.
Sure, they show you proper form for exercise progression and how to structure a program.
But very little (if any) time is spent showing you how to help your client with a stuck ankle get into a deep squat. Or how overstretched hamstrings can contribute to a swayed back in a deadlift.
Proper squatting and deadlift form is important for any trainer but, until you understand how to help people with limitations move into these positions, you can’t be an expert resource to your clients and you risk losing them.
These days there’s a trend we have learned. We tell the client that you can’t fully help with these conditions because you are not a Chiropractor, Physiotherapist, or Rehab Specialist. Your clients
expect you to be a movement expert and help them with these limitations while staying pain-free and making progress.
It’s a lot to ask but to be a successful personal trainer, you have to distinguish yourself as someone who will take on client movement issues which other trainers avoided or refused to address.
This is why we created ‘Essential Movement Method.’
In one weekend, this course will teach you:
After the weekend, you will walk away with the knowledge and expertise needed to keep clients injury free while making progress despite movement limitations.
