Become an expert in human movement with NASM's Corrective Exercise Specialization.
What is NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist (NASM-CES)?
Corrective Exercise is one of the most important components of a comprehensive exercise program. Regardless of athletic ability or fitness level, almost every person has some degree of dysfunction that increases the chance for injury. This could include muscle imbalances, decreased flexibility, or lack of core and joint stability. Leading fitness professionals should be able to identify these dysfunctions and create an integrated corrective exercise training program to help their clients remain injury free.
Why Is Corrective Exercise Important?
Movement is a reality of everyday life regardless of if you work in an office building or are a professional athlete. Corrective Exercise is imperative in identifying and addressing imbalances that cause posture, stability, and mobility issues. Having a rich understanding of Corrective Exercise allows fitness professionals to identify problems and potential limitations in a client's movements.

One of the most important elements of Corrective Exercise is a proper assessment. Using NASM's Corrective Exercise Continuum (CEx), professionals can effectively assess their clients and develop personalized solutions to improve the way their clients move, feel, and recover from a workout. Studies show proper Corrective Exercise intervention can improve neuromuscular control, which can reduce risk of future injuries.
