Exercise Coach

This highly practical  course gave me the skills to become a superior exercise professional. After attending the CHEK Exercise Coach Program, I am able to effectively administer individualized exercise programs for all types of clients. Correct technique is emphasized throughout the course, with plenty of hands-on assistance from the CHEK Faculty.

A key component of this certification is the integration of mind-body fitness and traditional exercise prescription. I understand how different types of exercise, from Tai Chi to cardiovascular conditioning to weight training, affect both parts of the autonomic nervous system – an often neglected factor that is vital to achieving success with clients.

Using the C.H.E.K Institute’s unique system of assessing physiological load, a system developed by Paul C.H.E.K., I can determine the amount of physical and emotional stress placed upon the body. Using this system, I am able to implement results producing programs that will enhance a client’s function and overall well-being.

At the conclusion of this course, I learned how to: 

 

  • Assess my client’s physiological load and write exercise programs to address low, moderate and high overall loads.

  • Assess functional deficits and imbalances in the core and back musculature.

  • Design personalized exercise programs that balance the autonomic nervous system.

  • Understand how optimizing posture not only improves function, but increases overall wellness.

Implement a plethora of exercises that enhance function.
