Essence of Integrative Training Home Study Course



Integrative training means integrative. Client education, exercise prescription, program design,
neuromuscular training, core strengthening, motor learning and motor control are the
fundamental elements of  integrative training. Learn about each of these elements and
how they synergistically affect and compliment one another. Core strengthening and
umbo-pelvic stabilization accompanied by evidenced based research will provide deep
insight with understanding effective stabilization exercises for your clients.

This dynamic course is part of Advanced Training Specialist(ATS) certification created by PTCS.

PTCS created five separate courses that examine how human movement occurs from the
inside out, biomechanically & synergistically. These five separate courses were designed to
teach the foundation science, functional assessments and application science behind
human movement. Teaching you the 'science behind the movement'. These five separate
courses compliment one another. Learn the anatomy & biomechanics required for daily &

sport specific movement, the biomechanics behind all movements, and functional
assessments, findings and how to train clients based on evidenced based research.

This course was designed & peer reviewed teaching the ‘why’ behind everything.
The course is offered in a distance-learning format providing advanced continuing education to personal trainers. PTCS will send you the course electronically and is available for immediate download after purchase(see below).
