Do you want healthier knees for your clients (and yourself)? Start from the ground up with IDEA’s latest free course (that’s right, free)! Learn how to program sessions that use the feet to get better results all the way up the kinetic chain and better understand the influence the feet have on knee health.

Our brand-new “Rescue Your Knees—Look at Your Feet”” workshop is a 360° approach to learning. Watch—and perform along with—a standing sequence of exercises for the feet; break down the movements, muscles and tissues involved in the sequence; and then wrap up with a restorative foot massage.

This fun and informative new course is from IDEA FitPro U Labs, your source for free online education. Choose from eight course offerings—all concise, entertaining and effective—for busy professionals who want real results for their clients with content that’s both evidence-based and engaging.
