What is a CHEK Exercise Coach?

A CHEK Exercise Coach possesses the skills and knowledge to design and implement personalized exercise programs that incorporate traditional exercises with mind-body exercises. A key component that defines a CHEK Exercise Coach is the series of assessments used to identify core and autonomic nervous system dysfunctions. The CHEK Exercise Coach Program will help you accurately assess even the most complex client and lead you towards designing a scientifically sound program and achieving exceptional results.

CHEK Exercise Coaches stress excellent exercise technique and know that to produce the desired result, exercises must be performed correctly. They understand how energy-balancing exercises reduce total body stress and know when to use these types of exercises with different clients.
