A word from the Executive Director
I am very, very glad that I went through the process to
become a Certified Posture Specialist. The material that I learned was
invaluable…It taught me details of the anatomy of the spine and the biomechanics
of the spine. It also taught me the layers of muscles that are important in
keeping correct posture. .. However, the most important reason I'm glad I am a
Certified Posture Specialist is that it gives me confidence in improving
people's posture… The clients I help also know that I have taken the steps to
become a posture expert so they really embrace what I teach. Almost all my
clients (and potential clients) know they need better posture. Now I have one
more credential that sets me apart from competition. People are always impressed
when I say I'm a Certified Posture Specialist through the National Posture
Institute.- Nick Rainey from Provo, UT, NPI-Certified Posture Specialist
(CPS), Owner of Body4Change & Doctor of Physical Therapy
This course improved my ability to teach and help people
help themselves. The detailed explanations of how to evaluate clients and safely
teach is applicable not only to personal and group exercise training, but also
to people I contact in other areas of my life. - Rebecca
Engel from Athens,
GA , RN, MSN, NPI-Certified Posture Specialist (CPS)
A wonderful program providing clear, concise and valuable
information. This is a must certification for any fitness professional. - Barbara Pantino fromMassapequa,
