Higher Learning: Study shows that Knowledge Gives Trainers the Edge “Knowledge is not power, applied knowledge is.” Paul Chek, HHP, NMT
Internationally renowned clinician Paul Chek is spreading his expertise to the C.H.E.K Practitioners of the world, creating knowledgeable and competent trainers.
SAN DIEGO, CA: More and more, the desire to get in shape and to stay healthy involves enlisting the help of a personal trainer. Dozens of organizations in the fitness industry now issue certifications to personal trainers, promising competency with each one. But which credentials indicate the most applicable knowledge and skill among the group? What makes one certification better than the other? Who gets results?
A recent study conducted by UCLA shows that personal trainers with bachelor’s degrees in exercise science rank among the elite, along with those certified by the American College of Sports Medicine or the National Strength and Conditioning Association. The study also indicates 13 core subjects as the most important to study, including human anatomy, biomechanics, nutrition, exercise, and weight control. To those elite trainers who have completed the C.H.E.K Advanced Training Program, this is no surprise.
“Basically, a C.H.E.K Practitioner is trained in the analysis of biomechanics,” Jan Carton, C.H.E.K 2, told Australian-based Women’s Fitness & Sport Magazine. “Chek practitioning covers strength and conditioning from a very clinical point of view.”
At the C.H.E.K Institute, based in San Diego, CA, founder Paul Chek is setting high standards that must be met by each and every person before they can call themselves C.H.E.K Practitioners. The C.H.E.K Advanced Training Program requires, among other things, that a participant hold a certification or degree in an approved field prior to entering the program. In addition, before completing the intensive four-level program, practitioners must submit a written thesis proving critical thinking and effective communication, much like the requirements for a bachelor’s or master’s degree in exercise science.
Most importantly, C.H.E.K practitioners have passed rigorous written and practical exams prior to completing any level, showing an in-depth understanding of advanced level functional anatomy and kinesiology. C.H.E.K practitioners take a holistic approach, treating the body as a whole.
“No single organization, institution, or resource has had as significant an impact on my career direction and foundation as the C.H.E.K Institute,”said Aaron Wilson, C.H.E.K 4. “Paul Chek’s innovative work never ceases to amaze those student-minded folks who are honestly seeking the cutting-edge in the science of rehabilitation, performance, and functional development.”
Knowledge is truly contagious. To find out more about this elite Advanced Training Program or to find a practitioner in your area, call the C.H.E.K Institute at 800.552.8789 or visit www.chekinstitute.com.
