Neurofit for Therapists

The Neurofit concept has been progressed to four major neurological clinics in the UK and this course aims to equip you with the tools to develop a similar programme within your working environment. It is a progressive training programme empowering people with a neurological condition to challenge their physical fitness. The programme is run by specialist neurological physiotherapists and qualified personal trainers.

Course Description

The tutors on the course bring together aspects of Strength & Movement training and how this applies to neurology.

The first weekend explores function training and its role in fitness assessment, but also its use in programme design.

The second weekend explores exercise prescription and how to specifically train three areas of strength, cardiovascular, endurance and speed strength. The third weekend we will progress to develop your skills in designing progressive exercise programmes for your clients.

  • Understanding and analysing these types of strength.

  • Identify and analyse different components within yourself.
