Position Principles will explore how body positions can benefit movement quality, provide range of motion interventions, challenge loading, and change joint orientation.
Position Principles will create clarity for your clients, business, and programming by establishing clear language for your exercise selection. Do your clients know the difference between a staggered stance vs. a split stance position?
Position Principles will help you categorize exercises, thus organizing your exercise selection. The course will provide programming tips and includes a downloadable training program template that you can use with your own clients and athletes.
The process of exercise selection for any personal trainer, strength coach, or physical therapist can be overwhelming without a process.
To avoid feeling overwhelmed, I am going to show you why the foundation of my exercise selection process is position selection.

This resource is a worthy investment for fitness professionals."
"Michelle Boland's Position Principles course explores in detail the various fundamental positions and explains the importance of the "how's" and the "why's" in each lesson. It is well organized and easily digestible and stays consistent throughout. Each lesson includes a thorough written and video explanation, links and valuable downloads that makes this course worth even more. The MBT programming template provided at the end helps to organize and put into practice the fundamentals of the course. I wish I had this course available to me when I first started my studies, This course would have really saved me time and would have helped me in my early decision-making journey. Appreciating and understanding position principles makes exercise selection that much easier. Michelle does an excellent job at introducing these concepts and most importantly introducing application concepts of these positions. It really is a valuable course to anyone who wants to add or help jumpstart their treatment model and view position principles through an organized lens. "
"I was fortunate enough to check out Michelle’s new positions course and the reason I wanted to check it out is because I am always trying to find ways to add layers that make the decision making process a lot more clear, so I can be a lot more individualized with my approach. But at the same time, not just adding another layer of headache. Her positions course was amazing because it allowed me to add another filter into my system that made my decision making that much more clear and concise. I felt way more confident making decisions for my clients about exercise selection after this course. I didn't just get an idea of why I should use a position, but how to use it, what it looks like, how to progress it, and how to integrate it into your program overall. I can't recommend it enough. If you are someone who is programming for yourself, someone else, or especially if you are someone who has a big client load adding this filter to your exercise selection is going to be absolutely key. 10 out of 10!"
