Barefoot Training Specialist® Level 1
One of the hottest buzzwords currently in the health and fitness industry is "barefoot training". As we explore the benefits of working-out sans footwear we must ask ourselves "Why?"
Why train barefoot when shoes seem to provide the support and shock absorption needed for optimal performance?
The answer to this question lies in the function of the human foot.
With no established guidelines on barefoot training protocol, this is the only workshop that will fully prepare health and fitness professionals to better integrate barefoot training and foot fitness into their clients or patients workout and rehab programming.
Created by Podiatrist and Human Movement Specialist Dr. Emily Splichal, the Barefoot Training Specialist® Program will change the way you look at human movement and athletic performance. This program will cover foot & ankle anatomy, foot assessment techniques, foot-specific programming for different foot-types, foot function and fascial lines, footwear science, and evidence-based barefoot training techniques.
