There are a LOT of people out there who need our help. Far too often, we see many people with minor aches and pains get lost in the medical model.

They may be told by a physician to stop lifting (because it's "bad" for you) or undergo unnecessary surgeries that keep them out of your gym for months.

This course aims to help you change that. The principles in this course will not only teach you how to work with people that have pain or mobility limitations, it will teach you how to EMPOWER them to live stronger and healthier lives!
