News - Advanced Functional Training Course

We are delighted to welcome the guys from 'Faster Health and Fitness' to Aegis Training on the 24th and 25th of February where they will be delivering their two-day course in Advanced Functional Training.
The course is taught by Chris Fitzgerald and John Hardy, both accomplished and experienced fitness professionals. Here's what they have to say about the course below...

“Functional Training” is the latest hot topic in the health and fitness industry, but function is not a new concept, and there much misinformation and confusion surrounding this subject.

Using the latest scientific research and training methods, FASTER’s Advanced Functional Trainer (AFT) Course aims to dispel some of the myths surrounding functional training. The course is aimed at Personal Trainers, therapists, sports coaches who already have existing knowledge of functional training, and are looking to enhance their clients’ movement potential. Participants will gain not only theoretical knowledge, but also a practical application using the core principles of functional training and conditioning.

The AFT Course covers 8 fundamental principles of function, “big rock” assessments, muscle activation, as well as FASTER’s unique 3 stage programme design system.

By the end of the course, students will have a clear understanding of the principles and application of functional movement for personal training including:

• Functional biomechanics and muscle function.
• Muscle Activation – the role of proprioceptors.
• Defining and recording exercises.
• Designing assessments to match the client.
• Designing a functional exercise programme.
• Reactivate-Construct-Refine.
• Movement Practical – 1000’s of new exercises.
• Strategies for keeping clients injury-free.
• A unique way of motivating clients to enjoy and perform in training.

Full course notes are provided.
