So here I am, Thanks to KEK for this great post, I will find my way back to blogging by the end of this week and will be taking on board Kek's tips.
But for a start I'm going to post about my Hubby, I'm going to big him up!!
You may or may not know Paul started as a Personal Trainer but has now developed and educated himself through the C.H.E.K practitioner levels.
Most recently returning from Melbourne with his CHEK Practitioner Level 2, making him the highest qualified CHEK practitioner in Western Australia!!
He is now working in a studio in the city which has a strong focus on CHEK philosophies, along side his boss Brady Anderson (Ex-North Melbourne Player) who is a CHEK Exercise Coach and Holistic Lifestyle Coach.
I am also a CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach, I trained a while ago now and I definitely used alot of the principles during pregnancy and have recently been revisiting and incorporating into my life, its a direction I am hoping to head in professionally eventually and I believe its not enough to know your 'stuff' but you need to live it, so my first step is to get it right for myself.
Anyway, back to Paul :) I asked him for a bit more info on where he's at and what exactly he is doing and he e mailed me the following from across the lounge (all of 3 metres!! LOL)
Also he said if anyone in Perth is interested in a CHEK Assessment they can leave me a comment or e mail me.
CHEK Practitioner Level 2 Assessment and Program Design Services
Below is an overview of whats involved, they are great for truly understanding your bodies imbalances, correcting any niggling aches or pains or to increase work/home/sport performance.
CHEK Practitioners build sustainable health and performance through treating the core not the symptom.
The CHEK Assessment and program design is for anyone wanting to move without pain or dysfunction.
The CHEK assessment involves:
A 2hr session evaluating
o Static and dynamic posture
o Musculoskeletal strength and range of movement
o Core Function
o Foundation principles: Sleep, Hydration, Movement, Nutrition, Thoughts and Breathing
Analysis and individualised program design
A second 90min session to review the assessment findings and teach the program.
The assessments are completed at a private Perth city studio
Details of CHEK Practitioner Level 2
C.H.E.K Practitioner Level 2’s learn how to identify red flags as a necessary system of preventing injury through exercise. C.H.E.K Practitioner Level 2’s learn spinal bio-mechanics, neurological screening, essential orthopedic screening tests, length/tension assessments, corrective stretching, specific corrective exercise technologies, and how to refer to allied medical practitioners. Advanced level postural assessment using goniometric technology gives the C.H.E.K Practitioner Level 2 the ability to design highly specific corrective exercise programs.
The C.H.E.K Practitioner Level 2 is an invaluable addition to any medical practice treating work, sports, and recreational orthopedic injuries. They are also key contributors to the professional sports medicine and conditioning teams.
I'm so proud of Paul and his work ethic, the knowledge he now has is amazing, the continuous study and want to be the best he can be is inspirational.
Love you Paul and I am one Proud Wifey xx
