Advanced Flexibility Specialist Certification

Advanced Flexibility Specialist Certification

The IFPA Flexibility Certification covers the most practical fitness training information to ensure the competency of IFPA certified flexibility coach. The information in the IFPA certification covers the essential principles necessary for all levels of flexibility coaching. Taking the time and effort necessary to truly master these concepts will result in a significant increase in your ability to provide safe and efficient training to your clients.

You want to be at the "top-of-your-game," and the IFPA Certified Flexibility Coach gives you the tools to set you apart. Many, many clients need to improve their range-of-motion (ROM). Insufficient ROM is a major cause of back pain (guess how many of your clients experience back pain). Initially, many clients need more help with increasing ROM than they do with increasing strength. Plus, recent research by Dr. Wayne Westcott proves that combining strengthening exercises with stretching exercises dramatically increases fat loss (by approximately 33%). What will your clients pay you to increase fat loss by 33%? Increase your value to your clients and increase your profits.
