So You Can Give Your Clients the Results They Want and Need for Sports Performance and a Strong, Healthy Body
Before personal trainers develop any fitness program, their client must have a strong core foundation to eliminate or reduce any chance of injury and improve performance. A strong core is essential for power transfer from the lower to upper body and upper to lower body during all physical activities. A weak core, and lack of understanding of how core function affects movement and sports performance, will lead to diminished results and a greater likelihood of injury. After successful completion of this training course, you will be able to assess a clients needs as it relates to the core and properly design an advanced, integrated program customized for them.
In this comprehensive online training course, you are going to learn advanced core training principles, concepts and programming. This makes you a much better personal trainer or fitness instructor.

When you are training a client, the goal of core stability training is to effectively recruit the trunk muscles, and then learn to control the position of the lumbar spine during dynamic movements by using the deep trunk muscles.
