Sport Balance (3 hours)
(HLTH KPE10 – Sport Balance)
This course provides an in depth analysis of the technical and mechanical foundations of dynamic balance presented. You will learn techniques designed to improve proprioception, stability, and muscular coordination. Whole body balance will be developed using various pieces of equipment and drills using to help clients achieve coordinated movement, effective deceleration as well as directional change.

Sport Core (3 hours)
(HLTH KPE11 – Sport Core)
This course utilizes cutting-edge theory and practical information to help you understand and apply the principles of stability and rotary power into your training design. The core is best developed with a focus on whole body closed kinetic chain stability and rotary power to create a center for movement and force transfer. For dynamic performance and injury prevention, your core stabilizes to allow powerful leg and arm actions, leads into turns, absorb stopping actions and regulate balance.

Agility, Quickness, and Reactivity (3 hours)
(HLTH KPE12 – Agility, Quickness, and Reactivity)
This course delivers progressive training methodology to develop optimal performance through effective movement. Theory, drills, and teaching progressions for agility, quickness and reaction skills for young athletes, adult functional fitness and elite athletes are covered. The outcome will be an enhanced ability to improve movement skillfulness using single leg, double leg, acceleration, deceleration, lateral movements, stride power, vertical jump and many other movement patterns.

Sport Strength: Leg & Shoulders (3 hours)
(HLTH KPE13 – Sport Strength: Leg & Shoulders)
Success in sport and in life movement requires the ability to transfer force from the legs through the core to the upper body seamlessly. With a focus on training integrated movement, this course will teach you how to incorporate both movement and balance into your training methodology. The result will be the development of a stronger, smarter body by using the Linked Strength system for the legs and shoulders.

Sport Strength: Chest & Back (3 hours)
(HLTH KPE14 – Sport Strength: Chest & Back)
Sport and life movements occur in an unpredictable environment and in order to respond effectively we need to be able to transfer force from the legs through the core to the upper body. This course will teach you how to develop push pull exercises that incorporate balance and movement for truly effective results. The Linked Strength system for chest and back trains the body to become more skillful and develops intelligent strength to meet the demands of everyday life and sports.


Sport Movement Essentials (8 hours)
(HLTH KPE15 – Sport Movement Essentials)
Effective and efficient movement skills are the foundation of athlete performance. The focus of this course is to develop speed, agility and quickness (SAQ) using a progressive teaching and training methodology Essential tools include a functional readiness assessment protocol, skills and drills to develop balance and equilibrium, dynamic warm up, foundational movement patterns, nervous system activation and multidirectional patterns in a scientific and practical format that is easy to implement for diverse training environments.

Sport Strength Essentials (8 hours)
(HLTH KPE16 – Sport Strength Essentials)
This innovative strength training program explores the evolution of training from muscle isolation focus to an integrated whole body dynamic lifting techniques. The exercises progress from the development of stability, mobility, eccentric control and total body linked system strength mechanics to create athletic strength and skillful movement. A functional assessment helps understand athlete strengths and weaknesses, combined with the exercise progressions creates a strong foundation for strength and power performance.

Sport Balance Essentials (8 hours)
(HLTH KPE17 – Sport Balance Essentials)
This cutting edge balance training program teaches the importance of balance to athlete performance along with the process and progressions needed to challenge balance for sport improvement. The functional assessment protocol uncovers athlete weak links so the exercises can be used to improve movement, stability, and strength providing the foundation for sport success. Easy to implement exercises are categorized based on difficulty and complexity creating a simple and effective plan to improve balance for sport.


Sport Movement Advanced Concepts (8 hours)
(HLTH KPE18 – Sport Movement Advanced Concepts)
Building on the established movement skills and patterns, this advanced course delivers the next level of training with in-depth scientific theory, the progression of complex movement patterns, and exercises and drills with higher levels of skill execution and intensity. Advanced skills and drills to develop rapid excitation, multi directional quickness, and external reactivity progress athletes to be well prepared to challenge high intensity energy training safely and aggressively.

Sport Strength Advanced Concepts (8 hours)
(HLTH KPE19 – Sport Strength Advanced Concepts)
Expanding on essential strength training knowledge and exercises, this course explores more advanced training principles and complex exercise progressions with a focus on the development of explosive power. Exercises presented develop explosive Linked System strength in more dynamic, unstable training environments with more complex movement skills Movements focus on more sport specific demand and overall athletic strength that is transferable for individual tactics. The exercises progressively build whole body strength that is initiated with the legs, transfers force through the core and expresses production and advanced toolbox of dynamic and explosive exercises provides an endless training repertoire for diverse environments.

Sport Balance Advanced Concepts (8 hours)
(HLTH KPE20 – Sport Balance Advanced Concepts)
Complex exercise progressions and advanced training principles are presented to challenge dynamic and transitional balance. The focus is to help athletes improve force production with direction changes at sport speed and under load to challenge balance and impact performance. Movements focus on sport specific demands and overall athletic balance is transferable to individual tactics. An advanced toolbox of exercises that are categorized by difficulty and neuromuscular complexity provides a progressive training methodology that impacts all sports in multiple environments.
