Medical Exercise Specialist - What is Your Most Important Skill?

 

Hey Medical Exercise Specialist! What is the most important skill you possess as a medical exercise profession? Is it your ability to come up with creative exercise programming? Is it your understanding of dozens of different methods to strengthen the bicep, the quadricep, or the hamstring? Is it your ability to use the foam roller? Is it your understanding of anatomy? Or is it your ability to perform a thorough and effective assessment of the medical exercise training client? Which one is it?

 

I've taught the Medical Exercise Specialists (MES) around the world since our first MES workshop in July 1994. This is our 28th year and we are seeing a change in the medical exercise training client. This is due to the reduction in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and chiropractic services.

Personal Trainer vs Medical Exercise Specialist....which are you?

 

Let's continue outlining our Advanced Medical Exercise Specialist Virtual Workshop. We will use case studies to teach and apply the advanced MET skills and techniques taught in this course. We will start with Mrs. Jacobs' case study: 

The AMES will give you the ability to identify and use:

  • Red Flags
  • Vital Signs
  • Functional Outcome Measures
  • Muscle Testing
  • Goniometry
  • Balance and Gait

These components are used to determine if the client is appropriate for exercise (should be referred back to physical or occupational therapy or a physician) as well as the basis for a safe and effective MET program. These MET skills are just a few of the more than 52 reviewed in the AMES Virtual workshop. These skills will help you make the transition from personal trainer to Medical Exercise Specialist. Go to www.AMESVirtualWorkshop.com to register. Register now.....only a couple seats are left!
