    Understanding Muscles and Movement

You will also learn the unique approach of The BioMechanics Method in regard to understanding how gravity and ground reaction forces change the way the body moves – knowledge that is imperative for designing successful corrective exercise strategies.

    I found this program while browsing Idea conferences and absolutely fell in love with Justin’s teaching style. Despite my being a certified personal trainer, following this material was like understanding many aspects of anatomy for the first time - in real language that actually made sense. There were many “lightbulb moments”. I was immediately able to transfer this information into my (client) training and even gained tremendous insight into my own body and sources of pain. I watched every video that he had and, wanting more, went through to complete the Specialist course. When I had questions about the material, I received a response from Mary Bratcher (co-creator of this program) herself. It really felt special to have a personal response from such a “higher up” because it showed how truly invested they are in the success of their students. I am very pleased with this course, the material, and the people behind the brand. Very grateful to have had this opportunity to learn from the best!

    I personally recommend this course, because it covers all the basics from toe to head. In my opinion courses like this one should be in every personal training certification, so every student has an understanding of neutral positioning. I loved how in depth Justin is with each section especially with his assessments. I have over 8 years of coaching experience and 5 years of corrective training and I still gained knowledge from his approach that I am currently applying to all those that I work with.

    Loved the program. Very professional from start to finish. I love the way the program was broken into 5 Modules that each had their own test. I've taken other certifications that were not so well organized. This made it much easier to concentrate on one area and really learn it. I was able to start using the knowledge with my Pilates and arthritis classes while I was taking the training. I'm very excited to start using the entire program - including the "working with clients" portion with my personal training clients as I build my business. And Mary was a great help with technical support when I called them directly. Thank you.

    I love The BioMechanics Method. It’s worth every penny. The course creators, Justin Price and Mary Bratcher, make all of the highly technical aspects of corrective exercise so easy to understand. In the videos, Justin shows you step by step how to apply the techniques on actual clients. And he has a great sense of humor, which not only keeps you engaged but also gives you many ideas to steal for your own clientele. Every second is carefully orchestrated--there is absolutely no fluff. The text and forms are indispensable. What I especially appreciate about TBMM is that it is taught by a personal trainer, who knows exactly what you need to know for personal training. Alternatives to TBMM are often taught by a physical therapist or an orthopedic surgeon, who are very educated/qualified but do not actually do corrective exercise day in and day out the same way an IDEA International Personal Trainer of the Year does.

    I found the content directly applicable to many of my clients. One client in particular who has been training with me for years began experiencing knee pain recently, and we were unable to figure out the cause. Shortly after I completed this course, we both identified the cause and completely rectified her knee pain. I definitely would not have been able to help my client as effectively as I did without this training.

    Great course, excellent learning/study materials, provides the fitness professional with practical skills to confidently guide your clients through a corrective exercise program. As a Personal Trainer and Pilates Instructor I believe the TBMM program design and order of exercise progression will work in seamlessly with both exercise methods. It just makes sense

    I am very proud to have recently completed the TBBM course. This is both a wonderfully constructed course and amazingly effective method for assisting my clients in relieving their chronic musculoskeletal aches and pains. I love teaching the connectivity of the kinetic chain and the way the human body responds to misalignment. It is so gratifying to have a method that educates my clients as well as relieving them of their discomforts! After 20 years as a personal trainer, this course has brought me new energy and confidence I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a solid method for corrective exercise and a supportive group back at the TBBM home office!

    I feel that this course is a must for all fitness professionals as I realize good functional movement is only achievable when we move from a position of as close to ideal posture as possible. The course content is very well laid out in informative text and videos that are easy to follow. Being able to move at your own pace through the material step by step makes it even easier. Since completing this course I have been able to assist many of my clients in correcting deviations in their posture that was affecting their daily lives, eliminating aches and pains that they had learnt to live with. A new client who came to me having learnt to live with intense shoulder and hip pain even though she had been down many avenues for a cure was amazed at the progress she has made by diligently doing her home exercises every day for the past month. Her hip pain has totally disappeared and her shoulder is well on the way to becoming pain free. This course has also made me more aware of the imbalances within my own body which I have been working on with excellent results.
