Rehab Trainer is leading a fresh stream of education for the fitness industry: to create a new breed of Fitness Professional who is able to more effectively assess, rehabilitate and prevent low-risk injuries from developing during their training of clients.
Our reputation has been built on quality, face to face, customised instruction provided by elite sports Physiotherapists and Fitness Educators. We are delighted with the feedback our students give us: more than 98% of our clients report feeling significantly more motivated, confident and knowledgeable in dealing with their injured clients after doing our courses. And happily, this translates to happier clients, increased profitability, and a lower dropout rate for them, too.
After completing the Rehab Essentials course, Fitness Professionals will function according to the five-part “Rehab Trainer” model as a safe and effective method to achieve that goal. This model is quite distinct from the Physiotherapy model, therefore preventing the concern that professional boundaries are being crossed. Rather Rehab Trainers seek to strengthen old boundaries: specifically, that PT’s should never diagnose injuries, should refer injuries that are high risk immediately to an allied health professional, and should not engage in certain types of isolation exercises that are most effectively carried out by a physiotherapist. Therefore be assured – you are not attempting to become a Physiotherapist. You are becoming a more highly skilled Fitness Professional who has a new toolbox of skills with which to deal with the litany of small niggling injuries that plagues the fitness industry.
Rehab Trainers are encouraged to consider themselves a part of the “Rehab Team” for a particular client who has a low-risk injury, in the same way, that a massage therapist or physiotherapist might.
Injury management is NOT the exclusive domain of health professionals (Physiotherapists, Doctors, Orthopaedic Surgeons, etc). The exercise professional/coach / personal trainer who has the confidence and competence to work with an individual's unique biomechanics, and manage their aches and pains, holds the key to unparalleled success with their clients.
Let's be clear: you are NOT going to become a Physio by doing REHAB ESSENTIALS - instead you are becoming a new breed of exercise professional - specialised and extremely effective. Most graduates of REHAB ESSENTIALS are in high demand for their new skills and the role they can now play as part of the broader "Rehab Team".
The three-day REHAB ESSENTIALS course is the foundation of your Rehab skillset. (It is also a pre-requisite for the Rehab Masterclass.)
