Holistic Health and Performance for Women
We all know that there are important biological differences between men and women, and yet there remains very little in the way of courses dedicated to understanding how to train women for health and performance.
Designed by Sara Gustafson (a high level CHEK Practitioner), this in-depth course is devoted to helping students develop a deep understanding of women’s hormonal cycles and the Jungian archetypes that embody the essence of feminine energy in its truest forms. With this firm foundation in place, students are taught to design holistic health programs that are truly tailored for the needs of their female clients.

On completion of IMS Level 3, many practitioners start to work alongside Doctors and Orthopaedic Consultants so knowing the medical terminology is essential.In order to work closely with other specialists or with your clients alone, you will have to understand key points from imaging reports such as X-Rays and MRI scans. We show students how to read reports and show common areas of interest in scans.
Swiss Ball Training

Used in rehabilitation since the 1960’s, Swiss balls are now becoming popular in training environments. There are literally hundreds of uses beyond performing a crunch over the ball! However, as with any training tool correct usage is essential to achieve the results you are seeking.
