Integrated Movement Science Level 1:
Holistic Corrective Exercise and Performance Coaching

This highly practical five-day course will give you the skills to become a superior exercise professional.

After attending IMS Level 1 (formerly known as “Exercise Coach”), you will be 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. You will 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 your clients.

Using the CHEK Institute’s unique system of assessing physiological load, developed by Paul Chek, you can determine the amount of physical and emotional stress placed upon the body. Trained in this system, you will be able to implement results-producing programs that enhance your client’s function and overall well-being.

At the conclusion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Assess your 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.

Integrated Movement Science Level 2:
Neuro-Developmental Movement Analysis

Integrated Movement Science Level 2 expands on IMS Level 1 and the knowledge you gained of exercise and its scientific, therapeutic, and performance applications. Students learn infant development assessment as a means of identifying the physical, emotional and mental etiology of movement inefficiency. Paul Chek’s Primal Pattern® system of movement analysis is taught in IMS Level 2 as a seamless progression from infant development.

The IMS Level 2 student learns to identify which Primal Pattern® movements are essential to each individual’s work, home, recreational, and/or sporting environment. Using a variety of exercise modalities, the IMS Level 2 graduate is able to customize any exercise to suit each client’s ability and skill level. All instruction is based on an integrated holistic model for assessing movement disorder and restoring functional movement. IMS Level 2 students learn how to identify which systems of the body must be balanced to create well-being as part of a skillfully designed exercise program.

Integrated Movement Science Level 2 Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand infant movement pattern assessment and the application of infant development exercises as a foundation for Primal Pattern® movements.
  2. Learn a holistic, integrated model of Primal Pattern® movement assessment.
  3. Design fully customized exercise programs based on a needs analysis for each client.
