Specialist Functional Therapy -£688 (Learn More)
Functional training courses come in varying depths, this one has a lot of depth. It delivers a thought process that will allow you to get injury diagnosed clients back to fitness at pace. If you are looking to be known as the fixer, as the go to person for clients who carry diagnosed problems and pain, then this is the course that will work best for you. As far as functional training courses go, this one is head and shoulder above the rest, as it gives you the ownership of the skills and techniques you develop after learning the thought process.
Some courses promise you the skills to cure people…they have no idea! Your clients body, when diagnosed correctly by someone qualified, will, given the correct environment, recover. The problem is in the injured time and then change in movements that the injury causes. As pain and injury are not necessarily linked, then the movement patterns that the client picks up because of the injury, can be really hard to track down. Add to this the fact that everyone has an individual movement pattern for movements we are born with, like walking, lifting and squatting. FASTER, unlike what the majority of the industry is selling, shows that assymetry does not predict your clients chance of injury or the level of pain they are in. This is why we built a robust system for allowing the client to find their natural movement patterns, keep strength, power and flexibility in all the areas of the body not in recovery, during recovery, and then we have a system for helping the client get back to THEIR best movement. This course also comes with Sales, Marketing, Coaching and Functional Nutrition lectures. If you work with anyone who has had an injury, or who would be likely to get one or multiple injuries, then you need to do this course.Buy Now £688
Specialist in Football (Soccer) Performance – Blended and Online only -£250
If you are looking for a functional training course, that is focussed on helping you work with the best football (soccer) players, then this is your course. We made this the most functional training course we could on football. Using a thought process to guide you, we only let our trainers who work with pro-footballers, teach this, which means you start to network with people who have already opened the door in the industry.
FASTER is in professional football. We are mainly represented through our top trainers and ex-professional footballers at www.surpassfitness.co.uk. Surpass is a company where FASTER helped to mentor the trainers, that then helped their reputation in football stick.
This course is our way of sharing the thought process we used in order to get in to football and make a huge difference. Learn how we take movements from the sport, defined physical improvements, designed by the player and coach and we convert them in to highly specific training programmes. The course shows you how to assess in all three energy systems, in a way that is specifically related to football, and in a way that will impress the coach, the physio and the player.Buy now £250
Specialist in Golf Performance – Blended and Online only -£250
Golf functional training courses often have one swing at the centre of it, and then has a set of techniques built around this. Faster has designed a functional training course for personal trainers, strength conditioning coaches, golf pro’s and other movement specialists. This course is going to give you a great understanding of how to work with a coach, and get the best results for your clients. Applying this thought process has helped Faster graduates to get in front of some of the worlds top golfers and get a positive result in their game. Due to the accuracy of the techniques you deliver based on this thought process, you will see the results instantly.
Written by myself (John), Andy Driscoll and Rich Ellis (PGA Pro), this is the system we use to train top golfers and golf pro’s. Taking you through the specific thought process needed to train golfers, this is not about learning the movements of the game, this is about learning how to produce the exact results your client’s golf pro is asking for. The reason for this, is that every coach has their own thought process and idea of a great set of swings, and so the skills you need are different to most golf training courses on the market, the skills you need in these scenarios are the skills that will allow you assess a movement accurately and then deliver the correct information back to the coach. After negotiating exactly what your client’s coach wants from the next shot, then you need to look at that and form a technique and a set of training to get those results. Using this technique we have improved accuracy by 20% and club head speed, in one session, in four moves, for a scratch golfer who is also a biomechanic consultant to two of the top ten golfers in the world. Companies are being formed and trainers are starting to build careers on this knowledge alone!Buy Now £250
