Module 1: Integrative Movement System™ Foundations

Course Overview

One of the most challenging aspects when working with the general population is knowing where to begin and how to appropriately progress them towards their goals. In this interactive, virtual intensive, you will discover the foundation for helping your clients optimize their performance to effectively and safely accomplish their health and fitness goals.

During this 21-hour intensive online workshop, you will be guided through the Integrative Movement SystemTM, our systematic approach to assessments, corrective exercise, and functional exercise progressions for the core, hips, and shoulders.

  • You will learn why a systematic process is far more valuable and reliable than a toolbox full of random exercises. We will add to your exercise library, but more importantly, you will know when and how to use the most appropriate exercises and progressions.
  • You will be able to apply the core principles of IMS – alignment, breathing, and control – to create both short- and long-term changes in your client’s posture and movement while alleviating chronic tension and improving performance.

When you have completed this workshop, you will:

  • Understand and be able to work with clients with common medical issues such osteoarthritis (of the spine, hip and shoulder)
  • Be able to apply best-practice approaches to training clients with low back tightness, disc problems, and spinal stenosis.
  • Understand how to apply a consistent and reliable process to assess, address, and progress your clients with chronic shoulder and hip issues.
  • Leave with the tools and strategies to differentiate yourself in the marketplace and attract more individuals who want and need your expertise.

The Integrative Movement System™ (IMS) was developed by Dr. Evan Osar, Chiropractic Physician, author and speaker  and Jenice Mattek, Licensed Massage Therapist, author, and speaker.

The duo developed the IMS because early in their careers they couldn’t find a reliable and consistent strategy for training real-world folks: the Active Aging (baby boomer and seniors), clients with an extensive medical history, and those individuals coming out of rehab and still experiencing chronic tightness, weakness, and inability to perform at the level they wanted.

The IMS is based upon the principles that guide the development of optimal posture and movement. It is a three-phase process:

  1. Guides a client through history and assessment to discover underling habits contributing to chronic tightness, discomfort, and or inability to perform at an optimal level.
  2. The individual is given the most appropriate corrective exercises so s/he develops more optimal posture and movement habits.
  3. The individual is progressed through the fundamental movement patterns – squatting, lunging, bending, rotating, pushing, pulling, balancing, walking, and carrying.

This process empowers the IMS professional to assist clients to progress towards effectively and safely accomplishing their health and fitness goals.

The IMS has successfully helped thousands of individuals reach their health and fitness goals and enabled professionals differentiate themselves in the industry.

We are confident you will not look at your training – or your education – the same after completing this program.
