WHY DO I NEED THIS COURSE?
Breathing is the foundation of life. It influences every system and cell in the body and everybody is doing it thousands of times per day. However, many of us never put conscious thought into our breath, and never learn how to do it properly. We end up taking thousands of dysfunctional breaths per day and never even know it. In this online-only course, you will learn why optimal breathing is so important, how to assess functional and dysfunctional breathing in various situations, and how to teach and prescribe dozens of breathing methods designed to enhance your physical and mental health, performance, and longevity.
DO I NEED TO BE A TRAINER TO TAKE THIS CERTIFICATION?
You do not need a training or medical background to take this course. While this material was originally designed for fitness and health professionals working with clients, we break down complex scientific topics into easily digestible bits so anybody can understand and benefit from the material. You will have plenty of time to review lectures and take the course at your own pace to ensure you leave with a firm grasp on the information.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE XPT PERFORMANCE BREATHING CERTIFICATION AND OTHER BREATHING CERTIFICATIONS?
There are dozens of breathing courses out there, and a few of them are excellent. Our course differs from others out there in a few ways.
-Many courses are focused on one specific method or dimension of breathing, while XPT Performance Breathing covers the whole spectrum of breathing methodologies
-Performance Breathing is designed to provide the foundational principles to understand all breathwork practices so coaches can understand the why and not just the how that supports our techniques
-Performance breathing provides a simplistic breakdown of complex physiology allowing even the most novice user and advanced coaches to comprehend the principles and use the methods
-Performance breathing has an assess, correct, teach and adapt approach which provides the tools to scale and adapt breathing methods to every person’s needs instead of trying to fit every individual into a single methodology
