Designing effective programs is not just a science, but an art. In Program Design you learned a lot about the science of program design and the manipulation of acute exercise variables. In Advanced Program Design we take this craft to a new level, diving into a multitude of factors that influence the art of effective program design.

We cover key areas such as how to:

  • integrate motivational factors into program design
  • identify and adapt your program to match your client’s physiological load
  • perform an effective needs analysis
  • understand and calculate biomotor profile
  • assess, ascend and descend Primal Patterns™
  • progress from base conditioning into specificity phase conditioning
  • apply the success formula across rehabilitation & performance conditioning

To create a truly effective program it must match the needs and conditioning of the individual. You could write the best program in the world, but if your client doesn’t do it, or can’t do it, or gets injured doing it, it loses all its value. Advanced Program Design teaches you how to consider all key elements of the client’s health, performance and motivational status so that the programs you design are among the most effective and thorough on the planet.

Everything I Needed And More

i've always been interesting in this type of lifestyle, well just health and fitness in general, also help from following those on instagram that embody a similar style, living this kind of way for the last 2 years. i thought i knew a lot, but this course has just sparked a fire under me, the content and structure that this course has delivered has gone beyond my expectations and absorbs into my brain like a sponge. I thought i knew a lot but boyy was i wrong. This course is just the tip of the iceberg and im looking forward to HLC level 2. if you're really looking to up your knowledge and wisdom with Holistic Lifestyle, or even looking to get into the game, this is definitely the place to be, and to be taught by IMO the godfather of health and movement is an experience worth having. Don't go cheap on your body, and don't go cheap on a qualification either... Much love to Paul and the team, would love to get in touch some time :)

HLC 1 online - great!

A very unique course. Representation was clear and on-point. I dont know if finding clients for this could be a problem in my country, I'll see about that.

Scientific Back training

Great course and other prerequisite for IMS1! Paul in this course shows his holistic approach to back pain. He explains how its not only about exercise but how important are breathing, mastication, visual and vestibular system and many other things. Except that he shows you a lot of his assesment techniques and a a lot of exercises from rehabilitation exercises to basic lifts like a squat or deadlift.

David Emsden

Very clear and well structured course. A thorough explanation that links through to practical applications that can be utilised with clients.

Program Design 2nd edition

In my opinion this is the best of three prerequisites for IMS 1. No matter if you are beginner trainer or if I you have already gained some experience in the field I believe you will get some enriching knowledge for you. Paul explains here some basic professional terms and gives you detailed description a using of tempo, rest period, loading, periodization and much more.
