March 27 - March 29$650.00
This course will introduce the Exercise Professional to the importance of understanding the mechanics of exercise by using the concepts and mathematics of statics starting from the vantage point of traditional exercises.
- Define exercise.
- Understand the construct, and use, of exercise to manipulate critical variables, and understand which cannot be manipulated
- Understand the construct and use of exercise to alter the exercise experience of a client.
- Review of key anatomical structures and their material properties and why knowing the physics/mechanics may reduce the wear and tear on the body’s various materials.
- Gain practical experience applying the principles of statics to the human body via exercise.
