Mobility Coach Plus is an online course created for coaches, trainers, and therapists who want to integrate mobility training into their current approach.
The course will be launched on March 2nd.
Mobility Coach Plus includes research, lectures, personal experiences and case studies designed to challenge the way you think about training.
Confronting bias and improving critical thinking are both a huge part of our mission.
There are coaching videos, specific progressions/regressions, and program templates. We made this course about so much more than mobility. Students will learn the exact formulas I have used with my clients for years.
Students will have access to a private Facebook group as well as two 20 minute video calls with Ian.

There are no prerequisites necessary for this course. Many different approaches and systems will be discussed with the goal of being able to adapt to the specificity of every individual context.
Video calls can only be scheduled once certain tasks have been completed. Once the intro has been finished, the first call is designed to set the student up for success. After the completion of the course, the last call is to constructively reflect on the course's entirety and discuss how to implement what you have learned.
How much time does the course take to complete?
We will provide a 12 and 16 week outline that students can use as a guide. Keep in mind the course will be available forever upon purchase allowing everyone to finish at their own pace.
