The ISFTA BOSU Balance Specialist Certification will teach you the latest scientific principles and theories related to balance training, as well as a practical analysis of over one hundred different exercises, drills and stretches, while also helping you apply the science of functional balance and stabilization training to practical programming using the BOSU Balance Trainer.

After completion of the BOSU Balance Specialist Certification you will understand:
