CHEK Practitioners Are a Rare Breed
C.H.E.K Practitioners are specialists in Corrective Exercise and High-performance Kinesiology. They are trained in assessment techniques and individualized application of exercise and exercise programs. The higher the level completed, the more practical knowledge and experience they will have, particularly in complex orthopedic conditions. A C.H.E.K Practitioner has completed all four levels, plus passed a rigorous battery of exams, written a thesis and shown excellence in live presentations and in clinical experience.
CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coaches are specialists in wellness, stress management and lifestyle coaching. They have completed one or more levels of the CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach program, including all the required prerequisites for that level. The higher the level completed, the more practical knowledge and experience they will have. CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coaches come from a highly varied background including fitness professionals, health care professionals, nutritionists, dietitians and so on.
Repair, Rehab & Excel
“The main thing that everybody does is treat the symptom as is and where it is. Most pain and injuries in athletes are chronic and repetitive. If the body is out of balance, its like having a car with the front end out of alignment. If you don’t know enough about cars to recognize the front end is out of alignment, then you will notice the front tires are wearing out. Most people just get new tires without addressing the misalignment, and this leads to a lot of wasted time and money buying new tires,” Paul Chek.
It is important to assess the body from a causative point of view rather than address the problem from the point of pain or injury, and that is what we do. This is to ensure that the problem does not reoccur and the individual can continue on their path to excelling.
Prevent & Excel
We do not only work with individuals suffering existing injuries, pain or health roadblocks. We work with anyone who has a goal and prioritize their programs to include high level assessments so as to prevent injury. We know that injury is a certain hurdle for any athlete or person aiming to excel in their sport or fitness goals. Assessment techniques include Infant Development to identify developmental issues, a Primal Pattern(™) assessment to assess movements essential to life and sports performance, orthopedic assessments and physiological loads to determine stress levels in clients. The CHEK program has the most complete assessment system in the world of fitness and wellness. We assess posture, length tension relationships, perform movement screening, biomechanics, derma tones, visceral systematic reflexes, nutritional and lifestyle screening, hormonal, emotional and spiritual factors, spinal pathologies and upper cervical anomalies. In all cases we do this before an injury occurs. This gives us an approach called “surrounding the dragon”. If we can identify what the problem is then we have a way of strategizing and hitting the problem from multiple angles, rather than just using one tool or one system. The body is a system of systems and must be approached as such.
Why C.H.E.K Practitioners Rank #1 in Sports Training
C.H.E.K. Practitioners are widely demanded and often first choice by professional athletes and sports teams, as well as celebrities and stunt trainers. Why?
C.H.E.K. Practitioners learn numerous techniques and assessments based on orthopedics, massage therapy, chiropractics, and alternative healthcare. It has been proven that once a trainer or coach takes just one CHEK Advanced course, they are placed in the top 10% of their field worldwide.
A C.H.E.K Practitioner operates from the highest level of practical and clinical courses to achieve their unique skills and become the top professionals in the exercise field. Over 100 orthopedic assessments and techniques based upon the latest clinical experience and research from famous physical therapists, orthopedists, chiropractors, osteopaths and the work of Paul Chek is taught and applied. Furthermore, to remain in practice every C.H.E.K. practitioner must continue their education every year to stay primed with latest research, studies, practices and techniques.
