This is the sixth step in the “7 Steps to Starting Your Medical Exercise Training Practice in Any Setting”.
To provide safe and effective medical exercise training services you will need to obtain the necessary training. Simply having experience in personal training is not enough. Medical exercise training requires an thorough background in anatomy and the pathology of medical conditions as well as training in MET assessments, program design and utilization of MET protocols. MET goes beyond corrective exercise. Corrective exercise doesn’t review how to manage specific medical conditions or how to communicate effectively with medical professionals. The Medical Exercise Specialist Training (MEST) series is designed specifically to provide personal trainers with the skill, knowledge and materials to manage medical conditions with exercise. The MEST series provides the foundation you need to build a strong and profitable medical exercise training practice in any setting.
This is the first in a series of blog posts you will see over the next couple of weeks leading up to our first Medical Exercise Profit$ and Protocols webinar. The first webinar is titled “The 7 Steps to Building a Medical Exercise Training Practice”. Join us on January 29, 2015 at 9pm ET/6pm PT for this 90-minute presentation. You will get more details on the 7 steps to build your MET practice.
