Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) for Fitness Professionals

Course outline

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) conditioning was originally designed for high performance athletes but has been refined over the last 20 years to also treat injuries and chronic disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Regular AIS treatment increases both strength and flexibility thus reducing joint wear and tear. This enables us to enjoy the sports and activities we love in a pain free body well into old age!
