Movement as Medicine: 

The Movement as Medicine program and Range Of Active Movement (ROAM) curriculum offer a comprehensive approach to improving fitness and movement skills. Three levels cater to individual needs and goals. The following courses are available as half-, full, or multi-day intensives for Coaches or Personal Trainers or as hour-long classes to add to your facility’s group schedule or personal training clients. These programmes serve as the curriculum for a three-level Movement as Medicine Coaching Certificate that introduces current and prospective trainers to corrective exercise, functional fitness, strength and conditioning and sports-specific programme design and delivery skills.
