Read what students of the coursework have to say about their experience:

“The Integrative Movement Specialist Certification program is an incredibly comprehensive, yet practical and effective tool for any Fitness professional today. The program produced immediate results for my Fitness business, allowing me to expand my target client base and increase my exposure to the post rehabilitation population. The class modules, support materials and follow up by Dr. Osar and staff are first rate. I highly recommend the investment in Integrative Movement Specialist program.”

Steven Schmoldt Certified Personal Trainer, Integrative Movement Specialist-Team #1

“I just want to thank you both for the best educational experience in my 20 plus years in this industry. This certification is my most prized accomplishment! The dedication and effort by you and Jenice goes above and beyond any experience I have had. Many new clients have come my way, and they are so grateful and happy that they can learn to exercise again, free of pain. It seems like magic, sometimes. They suck up our information like a sponge, and embrace it, because they really see and feel change. I feel sad that our course is done, but look forward to all the information we have and will have.”
Andrea Klekman, Integrative Movement Specialist, Team #6
“The IMS program has completely changed how I work with my clients. Dr Evan Osar presents a way to look at human movement that is both radically different yet so intuitive and obvious that it is at times shocking that no-one has ever been able to put it together this way before.”
Ellen Letten, CMT/L, IMS Team #1 Owner-The Healing Room
