Dear Health & Wellness Professional,

Ever wonder, “What could possibly set me apart in the world of fitness professionals?” or “How do I become the name that rolls off everyone’s tongue when they think of the best in the industry?”

Today is the day you step into that league—the top 1%.

In the realm of health and wellness, you are more than just a provider of services.

You hold the power to transform lives, not just through fitness, but by becoming an indispensable force in your clients’ journeys towards better health.

However, to be seen as such, you need to offer more than what’s common and expected. 

You need to focus on solutions that make a genuine difference.

Picture this: You’re the professional other trainers and therapists turn to when they hit a roadblock. When they come across a problem too complex for their skills, you’re their go-to. Your expertise is not only valued but sought-after, and your name echoes in the industry as the person who can handle the toughest cases.

This is where the paradigm shifts from being a ‘nice-to-have’ to an ‘absolutely essential’. And it’s not about responding to crises or economic downturns. It’s about catering to those persistent and painful problems that can truly ruin someone’s quality of life.

The top 1% understand this. They focus on offering unique services that are:

a) Unique, positioning them as the undisputed authority in their niche &

b) Essential, solving critical issues like pain relief and recovery, the sort of solutions people would prioritize over temporary fitness ambitions.

Imagine the gratification and prestige of being the go-to professional. Imagine the influx of referrals as you continuously provide life-altering results for your clients. That’s not just good for business, that’s you creating a legacy, being an inspiration.

If you’re ready to rise above the rest and carve a niche for yourself in the health and wellness industry…

Then This Is Your Perfect Opportunity!

Here's What Makes The Applied Movement Neurology™ System So Unique

At AMN Academy, we’ve been building a movement of Trainers and Therapists all over the world who want to understand the complexities of the Human Organism in a more meaningful way. 

Practitioners who look at their clients and patients as a WHOLE, not as a collection of independent systems, to be treated individually.

Our Practitioners are changing lives, every day, as STANDARD PRACTICE!

When you understand the science and art that is Applied Movement Neurology…

You gain an understanding of the body from a perspective that allows you to see things in an entirely different light.
It allows you to tap into the most complex and sophisticated structure in the known universe, and find out what’s happening in the body, in such detail, 
you will be amazed, your clients will be astonished and you’ll be changing lives as part of your every day routine.

I'm A Fitness Pro,

Why Do I Need To Learn About The Brain?

This ones’s simple…

It’s because the Brain controls EVERYTHING.
I’m sure that if you’re even remotely interested in Corrective Exercise you probably already have a set of go-to assessments,
So once you’ve put your client through their paces you’ll usually have an idea of any muscular imbalances, restrictions, and historical injuries.
Let’s say hypothetically that you discover that someone’s quads are over-facilitated. Or maybe you’re a total ninja and you’re able to pinpoint the specific muscle within the group, and so you go about your series of stretching protocols and foam rolling, and maybe you’re even able to apply a bit of manual therapy as well…
“If I can just pummel this stubborn, over-facilitated, problem-child of a quad it’ll calm down…”
But therein lies the rub (pun absolutely intended)
Muscles are DUMB. Like meathead, nightclub bouncer dumb.
If a muscle is over-facilitated or ‘chronically tight’ 
or on the flip-side, if a muscle just isn’t pulling its weight and won’t fire properly…
Muscles simply follow orders, contracting and relaxing in response to electrical signals.
Signals that come from the Brain and Nervous System.
In fact, if you took a muscle out of the body and disconnected it from the nerves that are innervating the motor units that control the muscle, 
You’ve essentially got yourself a nice slab of people steak…🤢
So once you’ve gone through the process of figuring out which muscles are being naughty and causing the imbalances, compensation patterns, and more than likely some form of pain or discomfort, 
You now have two options
Option #1: Poke, prod, stretch and move the offending piece of people-meat in the hopes that something in your bag of tricks works
Option #2: You skip all that and instead focus your time and energy on the thing that’s controlling the problem…
To put it another way, you could
     1: Treat the symptoms or 
     2: Treat the problem…
If you’re a Fitness Professional, with an interest in Corrective Exercise…
…you must study a Brain-Based Approach or you’re missing the most important part of the picture!

AMN Corrective Exercise Specialist Certification

Start your journey from a familiar reference point and learn exactly how Movement affects the Brain and how the Brain affects Movement.

Gaining an understanding of the Physiology of the Brain and Nervous System will help you see movement, muscle recruitment and muscular imbalances in a way that makes more sense, and will give you the confidence to eliminate these types of issues.

Corrective Exercise Specialist Certification Curriculum

Module One

Manual Muscle Testing

Manual muscle testing is a hands-on assessment tool that can help identify muscular imbalances in your clients. By testing the individual muscles and muscle groups, you can get a much more detailed picture of what your client needs and will provide you with…

Module Two

Ventral Horn Technique

The Ventral Horn Technique is a special method used in the AMN System. It was created by David Fleming, one of the founders of AMN. This technique is both sophisticated and easy to use, and it can help you find and solve problems related to your neuromuscular apparatus. By using the deep tendon reflex, you will be able to access the neuromuscular system with precision and gain valuable information about where issues might be located. Furthermore, we will also teach you how to effectively stimulate the areas of dysfunction, allowing you to get them working properly again in a short amount of time.

By learning the Ventral Horn Technique, you can achieve several benefits, such as:

Module Three

Peripheral Nerve Mobilizations

As a corrective exercise specialist, it is important to incorporate Peripheral Nerve Mobilizations into your practice. The peripheral nerves are a continuous network of nervous tissue that carry both motor and sensory signals throughout the body. Like our joints, these nerves require mobility to function properly. When they become stuck or adhered, it can limit movement control, range of motion, alter sensory feedback, and produce pain.

By learning how to position and move the body to impact the peripheral nerves specifically, you can enhance muscle innervation, improve function, and reduce or eliminate associated pain in certain presentations. Incorporating Peripheral Nerve Mobilizations into your practice can provide numerous benefits such as increased range of motion, improved muscle activation and control, improved sensory feedback, and reduced pain. By focusing on the health and mobility of the peripheral nerves, you can optimize your clients’ overall movement quality and reduce their risk of injury.

Module Four

Corrective Movement

Focusing on specific corrective movement protocols can greatly benefit your clients. By understanding the necessary parameters for effective movement application, you’ll be able to provide tailored solutions to correct dysfunctions in their body’s circuitry. This is important because simply prescribing a certain exercise for a specific problem isn’t always effective.

Using specific corrective movement protocols involves prescribing movements and drills that stimulate the brain to coordinate and control movement in a new and improved way. This approach can help to reset problems in the circuitry and improve movement patterns. As a result, your clients will experience increased mobility, improved stability, and reduced pain.
Moreover, once you’ve stimulated your client’s body to resolve a problem, you can then look at novel methods of long-term strength training based on specific movement skills. This approach can help to improve their overall physical fitness and prevent future injuries.
By using specific corrective movement protocols, you’ll be able to provide your clients with a more customized and effective approach to their fitness goals. They’ll see noticeable improvements in their physical abilities, which can help build trust in your expertise and lead to greater retention rates for your business.

Module Five

Self Assessment

The brain and body hold the answers to resolving pain, promoting health, and improving function, but it can be challenging to interpret their responses. Self-assessment biofeedback provides a way to assess the body’s innate response to specific interventions, allowing us to better understand what works best for each individual. This approach offers numerous benefits, including:

In this module, you will learn how to use self-assessment biofeedback to monitor the body’s response to exercises and movements, enabling you to optimize your approach and achieve better outcomes.

Module Six

Restorative Movement

Restorative movement sequences are a series of movement flows that can significantly improve body awareness, reduce pain, improve range of motion, activate muscles, and enhance flexibility. These sequences can be used as a corrective strategy, movement-centric training session, warm-up or recovery technique, or as part of traditional strength and conditioning or athletic training programs.

One of the primary benefits of incorporating restorative movement sequences is the improvement in body awareness, which can lead to better alignment and posture, reducing the risk of injury. These sequences also help to reduce pain and increase range of motion by targeting tight and weak muscles. Furthermore, the activation of muscles during these movements helps to improve muscular endurance and strength, which can enhance performance outcomes.
Restorative movement sequences can be tailored to meet the specific needs and requirements of clients, making them a highly customizable and effective tool for trainers. They can be used to improve performance and reduce the risk of injury in athletes or as a rehabilitation strategy for individuals with musculoskeletal injuries or chronic pain.
Overall, restorative movement sequences provide a powerful means of enhancing physical fitness and well-being. Incorporating these sequences into training regimens can lead to significant improvements in body awareness, pain reduction, range of motion, and muscular activation, making them a valuable tool for trainers and fitness professionals.

Module Seven

Core Activation

This module within our Corrective Exercise Specialist Certification is designed to address a common issue in pain presentations, which is the inhibition of the core musculature. This inhibition can manifest as pelvic, hip, and low back pain, as well as overall movement performance problems.

To tackle this issue, we teach you a comprehensive assessment process and a series of reflexive hacks that involve the skin, eyes, joints, and fascia. These hacks are designed to help you regain core activation in record time, which can lead to a reduction in pain and an improvement in movement performance.
After completing the assessment and reflexive hacks, you’ll reassess the muscle facilitation, and if it shows improvement, you can apply the gymnastics influenced core-training exercises and movement skills taught in the course. By doing so, you’ll experience new levels of strength and resolution of associated dysfunctions, which will help you to better serve your clients and improve their overall quality of life.

Dr Jamie Rockwin

Adjunct Professor, Hofstra University

I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy who was looking for something to make my patients better faster and have it stick! Often people have the same issues over and over again. I was Missing something. I found AMN. It was the best move in my career to study this technique. Now it’s no JOKE! It is intense education and a great platform in which it is presented. Having gone through intensive education, I have to say it is equally as educational as my DPT was. At various levels through this education , I have even found it was more intense and educational than learning the basic human neurology that was given in PT school. Being a certified AMN practitioner has lifted my skills to a heightened level that puts me above all other PTs in my area. It has given me a thirst for more, to understand better how we function. I have the knowledge to make patients better faster and they come back to me NOT for the same issues but because I healed them!

Sally Martin

Personal Trainer

I have been working in the fitness industry for 25 years , and have more recently been specialising in back care , I stumbled upon my first AMN course by complete accident , as it popped up on my face book page , I took my first workshop in London in 2017 , and was absolutely blown away I went on to study levels 1, 2, and currently studying level 3, I am now engaging in the most exciting learning period of my entire life, the ability to be able to clear pain, in individuals where all else may have failed, and to be able really help people on so many levels, from sleep issues to poor gut health is life changing! Excited is an understatement 🤗
