Essentrics has been adopted by countless professional, Olympic and amateur athletes as an all-encompassing program to aid in recovery, mobility, speed, and injury prevention. While each athlete has specific objectives unique to their sport, the underlying goal for all athletes is to continue playing and competing without pain or injuries. To do so, they require a balanced body: strong, flexible muscles and full joint range of motion, which they can rapidly achieve through regular Essentrics workouts.

Develop strategies for working with athletes of all ages and abilities

Whether you are a sports enthusiast, former athlete, or are looking to expand your offerings as an Essentrics trainer – this workshop is a great introduction to teaching athletes of all ages and abilities. Essentrics workouts provide an essential framework for enhancing efficient full-body movement and reversing the imbalances that come with the repetitive movement involved in any sport. Working with athletes requires you to show up prepared and understand a sport that you may have never tried before. It also comes with unique challenges and requests that will require you to be adaptable as a trainer. This workshop will help you sharpen your analytical skills, teach with purpose and become a more effective communicator so that your students can reap the lifelong benefits of making Essentrics a regular part of their sports conditioning.

Feel connected, supported, and inspired! This is a live online workshop you can follow from your home. The maximum of 23 participants allows for a personalized group learning experience. Spots are limited – sign up now to secure yours.
