The goal of any stretching program is to improve muscle flexibility. Flexibility enhances joint mobility and promotes structural integrity. Help clients to effectively improve range of motion and encourage active movement patterns using the G Ball (Stability Ball). This Course provides a variety of stretches for the entire body that you can teach to your clients. You will be able to take individual clients with specific stretching issues through some basic moves and then slowly progress them to intermediate levels. Add these stretching techniques to your clients’ warm-ups and cool downs. Then recommend that the client use the stretches outside your training sessions. The Flexibility Training Specialist Course will help you expand your marketability to individuals who need to increase their flexibility and also help boost your business while increasing your clientele.
