Integrative Corrective Exercise Instructor:

Corrective and Progressive Exercise for The Baby Boomer and Senior Populations

Who Should Attend? Health and Fitness professionals looking to understand and integrate corrective exercise into their training programs with the senior and baby boomers populations.  The information is based on the principles of the Integrative Movement System™.

Course Description: Baby boomers and individuals 65 years of age and older are currently the largest growing segments of the population. As increasing numbers of these individuals advance and move into their senior years, a significant proportion of them will experience chronic low back tightness and dysfunction. These limitations are leading to increased reliance on pharmaceutical agents and increasing incidence of orthopedic surgeries. However, by understanding and applying the principles of the Integrative Movement System™ into a corrective and progressive exercise program, the fitness professional can help their baby boomer and senior clients improve alignment and control of the trunk and spine. Additionally, this information will allow the fitness professional to be instrumental in helping improve their client’s functional strength and stability and become the movement-based solution to the health care crisis.
