NASM®: Corrective Exercise Model—Essentials and Beyond
Rick Richey, MS / Workshop • Thu., Mar. 30 • 10:30am–4:00pm

As a trainer, you know that muscle imbalances lead to poor movement, and that poor movement leads to injury. Rather than simply working around client dysfunction, it might be time to start identifying, addressing and implementing a course of intervention to correct the issues that plague your clients.

By applying the concepts and practices introduced in this preconference workshop (all within the trainer’s scope of practice), you’ll walk away with programs and tools that will get your clients moving, functioning and feeling better.

In this preconference workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Apply the NASM corrective exercise (CEx) model
  • Conduct multiple movement assessments (e.g., overhead squat, single-leg squat, pushup, shoulder rotation)
  • Identify imbalances that lead to altered movement patterns and implement various movement interventions
  • Create peer programs for each major area of movement dysfunction
  • Implement the NASM CEx program for your clients
