Who is the essential Extensa Fitness instructor certification for?

Fitness instructors, personal trainers, dance teachers and coaches who have little to no experience with flexibility training 

What is an Extensa Fitness class?

An Extensa Fitness class is a flexibility class that follows a group fitness format. The majority of classes are offered in a  medium to large group setting, but they can also be used to train a client one on one, or as a cross training class for dancers and athletes.

Is an Extensa Fitness class a stretching class?.

The word stretching is often used incorrectly. Traditional stretching classes are often based on only one stretching technique: static stretching. Extensa Fitness specializes in flexibility training which incorporates all types of stretching techniques combined with strengthening, balance and core engagement. Extensa Fitness achieves optimal flexibility based on the participants goals, whether it is to move with ease during regular daily activities, improve dance techniques or improve performance in a specific sport.

Is Extensa Fitness like yoga?

Yoga is a mantra, a way of life. The main goal of yoga is to lead a meditative, non competitive and spiritual way of life. Becoming more flexible from yoga is not the goal but a nice side effect. Extensa Fitness is designed specifically as a flexibility training program to achieve optimal flexibility for each individuals specific goal. Since Extensa Fitness is designed specifically for achieving flexibility, the programs are well balanced and intended for the entire body. Therefore less imbalances and injuries occur. Extensa Fitness does not follow a "pose" sequence but gradually transitions from one flexibility technique to another as the body adapts. Yoga concentrates solely on active and static stretches throughout the practice. 

Is an Extensa Fitness instructor similar to a physiotherapist or athletic therapist?

Although Extensa Fitness helps improve posture and muscle imbalances, an Extensa Fitness instructor is not qualified to diagnose any physiological or medical condition and can not prescribe any specific program related to a medical condition. Clients will approach you with their aches and pains, unless you have separate qualifications, you must refer them to the appropriate professional. Many Extensa Fitness instructors work closely with physiotherapists who in turn, recommend their classes once a client has been cleared to exercise after an injury. We encourage you to build your own community of physiotherapists, medical professionals, RD's etc.
