Level 1 – Intro to Biomechanics

Our level one course is an introduction to the field of biomechanics. Unlike most introductory biomechanics courses our course presents the medical and scientific research of the exercises we perform in the gym every day. We present the mechanics of the general human motor programs of squatting, lunging, bending, pushing, pulling, twisting, and gait. Students learn the kinematics and kinetics of each movement and how to avoid the known mechanisms of injury. There are no prerequisites to the course so everyone from fitness enthusiasts to research scientists are welcome.
