Awaken a new dimension of training as you explore the theoretical and practical perspectives of the synergy between fascia, muscle and nerves. Any trainer focusing on functional training, sport conditioning and keeping adults at their best, needs programming predicated on the structure and function of the fascial system. Your body's myofascial network exists in long lines, crossing joints and wrapping around the body, making this tissue ideal for stability and mobility. Learn how your myofascial network helps muscles control and move the body. Fascia is proprioceptively rich and communicates at great speeds, permitting every body to function better with whole-body integrated exercise.

Upon completion of this course, you will:
1. Be able to apply the training methodology that focuses on lengthen—strengthen—energize—rebuild to activateSmart Muscle®.
2. Have the tools to help clients eliminate fear, embrace failure, ward off injury, burn calories and reset youthful confidence using exercises that engage muscle and the mind.
3. Experience unique programming for stability, mobility, whole-body strength, energetic movement and recovery-restoration.
