Training Clients with Joint Replacements
Training clients with Joint Replacements is designed as an introduction to help the fitness professional or personal trainer become more confident in dealing with joint replacement clients and also clients dealing with major degenerative joint issues. Currently, over 7 million Americans are living with joint replacements of the knee or hip, so fitness professionals definitely need to be comfortable working with them. Over the next 10 to 15 years, that number is expected to double, and while those numbers are large, approximately 8-10 times that number of clients struggle with joint arthritis and other conditions. This course will help you with joint issues as well. If you are currently training clients with hip or knee replacements, this is the course to equip you with more strategies and more confidence to work safely and appropriately. Why not start today?
