Athlete & Gym Based Movement Assessments

Learn how to perform an athletic physical movement assessment. The information gleaned from a movement assessment can be used as a starting point for exercise programming and injury management.

Yourself, clients and gym members presenting with dysfunctional movement in different movement patterns can be assessed using a joint by joints approach, highlighting imbalances etc.

This STOPS just guessing, rather talking a proactive approach and addressing issues.

Thanks again for the course. I found it very valuable for taking my clients to the next level. I have a few high functioning clients and this really enabled them to tap into their full potential and continue to progress. I found your course particularly useful for NDIS clients using the fundamental lifts as a framework for effective development of motor patterns and strength. I would recommend any EP or other exercise professional take your course. It is easily translatable whether you are working with elderly clients, in the NDIS space or with junior athletes.

I have been seeing Chris as my Exercise Physiologist for the last 18 months. During this time he has taught me how important strength training in after an injury, to help prevent injury and for everyday situations. I have had spinal surgery and I had all but stopped using anything that resembled strengthening that part of my body as I thought if I didn’t use it the pain will go away. Well I now know that strengthening your whole body makes the pain go away and makes everyday easier than it was. I have two sessions a week funded by DVA and it has not inky helped my physically it helps my mental health as well. Getting out of the house moving and interacting has all changed since I started my training with Chris. I would highly recommend Chris and his services to anyone that has any physical or mental health issues to see their doctor about a referral to Chris for exercise physiology sessions. They are very different from what a physiotherapist offers and also a personal trainer. I was in the army and during my career I only concentrated in size and fitness and now I only concentrate on strengthening my whole body to be able to keep mobile and have the ability to looks after my 2.5acres on my own. This training has allowed me to look after the outside of my house in less time than before and that is huge for me as I spend at least 6 hours every week keeping my property looking tidy. I am 48 years old and I can honestly say I will never stop strength training as it will serve me when later in life as it is now. It also helped me recover from surgery quicker than most and instead of being out of training for 6 weeks it only took me 3 to be fit enough to return to exercising. If you have any health condition an exercise physiologist can help you get stronger without pain and they can help you get mobility back. You need to have an open mind and be willing to try things you think are going to cause you pain and you won’t look back ever. There will never be a day when you say I wish I didn’t do that, you will always be glad you had a session and you will feel so much better for it.
