CEUs: NASM – 1.9; ACE 2.0
Corrective Exercise is one of the foundational pieces of a comprehensive exercise program. Regardless of athletic ability or fitness level, almost every person has some degree of imbalances and movement dysfunction, leading to issues with posture, balance, and total body coordination. These imbalances and compensations can lead to decreased flexibility or lack of core and joint stability. By becoming a Corrective Exercise Specialist, you’ll help prevent injuries and optimize performance.
