    Move to improve part 1

    What you will learn in this course

    In this course you will discover the effect that exercise has on collagen, how this effect is influenced by estrogen levels and the surprising opportunity that this offers menopausal women to gain additional benefit from targeted exercise.
    This course explores the activity and lifestyle  guidelines that are going to be important to be aware of to ensure that you or your clients get the best out of their body during menopause, post menopause and ongoing.

    Explore the effect that exercise has on muscles and fascia over hours, days, weeks and years.   

    Find out the differences in the response to exercise between men and women and also between women of different ages.

    Discover styles of exercise that will allow the muscles and fascia to adapt in ways that will make you a better mover regardless of your age. 

    Move to Improve Part 2

    In this course you will find out how tension, movement, and appropriate loading can influence the way that fascial tissue adapts. From freedom of movement through hydration, to improved force transfer through replication and alignment of collagen, to better posture through retraining of proprioception – your clients have so much to gain from targeted exercise in your classes.

    What you will learn in this course

    • Identify the forces and mechanics involved in fascial loading.
    • Develop an understanding of mechanotransduction and its influence on tissue alignment, tension and proprioception.

    • Apply the theory in movement through a workout that uses the key movement patterns and intensities required to gain the best effect in your clients.
