More Information on IHP.....
What sets IHP apart?
If you want to talk like a PhD, a college professor, or use lots of 7 syllable words - THIS IS NOT THE COURSE FOR YOU. If you want to be able to understand training from a PRACTICAL STAND POINT and be able to communicate with ALL of your clients - THIS IS COURSE FOR YOU! IHP's training system has trained Navy Seal teams, UFC champions, scholarship athletes, military veterans, first responders, and regular moms and dads within our community; IHP is the training system MADE BY A TRAINER FOR TRAINERS!!
What is it?
The Fitness Instructor is the first course in the IHP training curriculum, but it’s not necessarily a beginner’s course. IHP's training system is extremely unique and built by a trainer for personal trainers. For that reason, it has its own nomenclature and terminology. Also, the actual training programs are so unique, they too require familiarity. Therefore, this first course (two courses) introduces the personal trainer to IHP’s unique language and training system, and we promise it will be NEW information for any trainer outside of IHP. SO - fear not - this is not amateur hour and you will NOT be bored!
What’s in it?
This first certification consists of two courses; The Fitness Instructor and the JC Octagon.
The Fitness Instructor introduces the trainer to our entire training system and the nomenclature used to communicate within that training system. The JC Octagon dives deep into the body’s core, its structure, its mechanics and a comprehensive training approach to training the Serape Effect. Both courses include a total of 15 hours of video lectures, comprehensive study guides with slides, notes, and 140 questions spread over two exams. From the time you buy and activate the course, you have 120 days to complete the course work.
