The Terrific Three
>>>The Integrative Corrective Exercise Instructor™ Certification Program <<< Designed specifically to help YOU become a Specialist in training older clients. 8 weeks until the next program begins.
Jenice and I hope your week is off to a great start. In this week’s video edition of Integrative Movement Insider™
I’ll share with you The Terrific Three – The 3 most effective exercises to improve core stability and strength in your older clients even if they’re experiencing:
- Other spinal conditions such as tightness, discomfort, or stenosis
Today however, I want to share with you one of the highlights of this past weekend’s workshop to illustrate the power of using a principle-based and very purposeful process like the Integrative Movement System™.
As I mentioned in the intro, this past weekend, Jenice and I were in Albuquerque, NM for the 5th Annual Functional Aging Summit.
If you were there, thank you so much for attending our sessions!
If you don’t make it a habit to attend live events, you’re missing out on invaluable opportunities to discover strategies to help you work successfully work with your most challenging clients, create strategic partnerships that can accelerate your business, and for making lifelong friendships.
During our Pre Conference workshop – Training Clients with Hip and Knee Replacements – Jenice and I took the group through the Integrative Movement System™ – Assessment > Corrective Exercise > Integration.
After assessing, we took the group through the Integrative Movement System™ Corrective Exercise Strategy.
This is the part of the process where we introduce the 3 principles of the Integrative Movement System™, the A, B, C’s – alignment, breathing, and control – to help develop more optimal and efficient posture and movement habits.
As you can see from the big smiles (there were some tears of joy as well) from Jenice and Bonnie, one of the fitness pros in the class, some major changes happened.
During the assessment process, Bonnie wasn’t able to lift her arm overhead. Bonnie was shocked – and obviously joyful – when upon reassessment, her arm went up overhead without pain.
IMPORTANT TAKE HOME LESSON!
This is exactly why we teach you how to assess your clients and how to have your clients self-assess during the Integrative Corrective Exercise Instructor™ Certification Program.
If you’re not assessing your clients – and more importantly, teaching them how to self-assess – you’ll miss a lot of these types of ‘AHA’ moments.
If Jenice had not had Bonnie self-assess, she likely would have felt more relaxed from using the A, B, C’s however she would have missed the rather immediate and impactful changes in her body.
And without noticing the changes, your clients are going to be less patient with your process. Additionally, they will be less inclined to do their homework which you know is one of the most important parts of their process for improving posture, movement and performance
However, if you have a strategic process to show them how the A, B, C’s can improve their ROM, stability, balance, posture and movement, they are more inclined to ‘buy in’ because they will feel the immediate changes.
If you’re ready to discover how to confidently assess your clients, teach them how to self-assess, use the most appropriate corrective exercises, and understand how to incorporate this information into the most effective exercise progressions, then join us for the Integrative Corrective Exercise Instructor™ Certification Program in Florida, Arizona, or Chicago.
If you work with the Actively Aging population – Baby Boomers, Seniors, Centurions – we guarantee this will be the most impactful and appropriate course you will attend.
You’ll leave this Certification Program with purpose, the program, and the process to create the kind of changes Bonnie experienced with your own clients.
Tomorrow, I’ll be back sharing the first of the Terrific Three exercises so that you can safely and successfully improve core stability and strength in your Actively Aging population.
Make it a great day!
