Bodyweight Training Certification: Bodyweight Fitness!
Bodyweight fitness is defined as any exercise that uses your own bodyweight for resistance. Bodyweight training certification is heavily based on functional bodyweight exercises. Having a certification in bodyweight training aligns well with the functional movement certifications. These moves not only strengthen and build fitness, but they also serve a greater purpose by making you stronger and better balanced for your everyday activities.
Your Bodyweight Training certification will help you learn to create functional training schedules and functional circuit exercises. Mountain climbers, push-ups, lunges, and squats are all examples of exercises that use your bodyweight as resistance. The nice thing about bodyweight fitness is that you always have what you need since you are using your own weight as the resistance. No more excuses about not having what you need to perform the moves….you’ve had it with you all along.
Plyometric exercises are also moves that can be done using your body weight as resistance. Plyometric moves help build power and stamina and can help with speed training and faster rotation of muscle response.
Bodyweight training certification helps you learn all of the moves and modifications you can use to keep your clients injury free. Caution needs to be acknowledged when performing any type of fitness involving weights. Even with your own body weight, having bad form or straining can lead to injury. It is best to have a trainer show you the proper way to work out and also to help spot and monitor your form and progress. Progress can be measure by strength and stamina. With consistency, the workouts do not get easier, but you do become stronger. Strength from training helps to improve overall health and fitness.
If you are someone who enjoys working out and connecting with other another athletes, a career with bodyweight fitness could be the perfect match for you!
