EBFA Barefoot Training Specialist® Level 1 Certification (8.5 NZ REPS CPDs)

Description

With the foot as the only contact point between the body and the ground, this complex structure plays a critical role in the way in which our body stabilizes during dynamic movement. As the foundation to all EBFA education the Barefoot Training Specialist Level 1 Certification sets the foundation for advanced concepts in barefoot activation, reflexive stabilization and movement efficiency.

Get ready to explore how to prep the body for movement by tapping into the nervous system with barefoot science, foot to core sequencing and reflexive stability via fascial lines.

Whether a client’s goal is corrective exercise, performance, or weight management, barefoot and foot-specific training can create faster and greater results. Integrate barefoot training into small group and group fitness applications for creativity, challenge, and injury prevention. Use corrective barefoot training for clients and patients with ACL injuries, low back pain, ankle instability, SI joint dysfunction, hip labral injuries, and several other lower extremity difficulties. Explore how barefoot science can enhance the timing of muscle activation patterns and how this directly relates to the prevention of hip, knee, and foot injuries.

The decision to become a Barefoot Training Specialist® is the first step towards joining our community of in-demand health and fitness professionals from around the world who have a solid understanding of foot function and barefoot science.

Athletic Trainers – EBFA foot and barefoot education programs are designed to present the latest research as it relates to restoring foot function, corrective exercises and athletic performance. With no established guidelines on barefoot training protocol, this is the only workshop that will fully prepare athletic trainers to better integrate barefoot training and foot fitness into their athlete’s programming.

Personal Trainers – EBFA foot and barefoot education programs are designed to present the most effective programming for personal trainers. Whether a client’s goal is corrective exercise, performance or weight management, barefoot and foot-specific training can create faster and greater results.

Movement Specialists – With the foot as the foundation to human movement, many movement dysfunctions treated by movement specialists integrate the foot. By understanding and implementing barefoot science and from the ground up corrective exercise techniques, movement specialists will be able to confidently address all movement dysfunctions.

Group Fitness Instructors – Looking to increase the challenge or creativity in a group exercise setting? By integrating barefoot training and foot-specific exercises, group fitness instructors are able to stand out among the competition while keeping their classes fun, fresh and effective.
