NASM and AFAA Recertification - Flexibility Training Concepts Certification Course

The Flexibility Training Concepts certification course is an essential course for all fitness instructors. Most clients will require some flexibility training to safely and effectively perform exercise optimally, and that will be the focus of this course. Nearly everyone is plagued by postural imbalances largely as the result of sedentary lifestyles, advancements in technology, and repetitive movements. Office jobs that require individuals to sit for long hours have led to dramatic increases in work-related injuries, including lower back, neck pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome as well as increased rates of obesity. Flexibility training has become increasingly recognized as an important way to help aid in preventing and treating various neuromuscular injuries.

Course Objectives:

  • Explain the effects of muscle imbalances on the human movement system (the kinetic chain).
  • Provide a scientific rationale for the use of an integrated flexibility training program.
  • Differentiate between the various types of flexibility techniques.
  • Teach to perform and instruct appropriate flexibility techniques for given situations.

A Course Worth Taking

Flexibility is a very important component of fitness, but it is often overlooked in today’s fitness programs. Our bodies are designed to move. A body that can move with ease and without pain is one of the keys to a healthy life. Freedom of movement is something that cannot be understated. Factors, such as age, previous injuries, occupation, current activity level and levels of fatigue can all play a role in your flexibility.
