EMS - Elite Movement Specialist Certification
“Transform the way you understand, assess and train the human body"
What is the EMS fundamentals certification?
Our brand new Elite Movement Specialist (EMS) series is designed to start you on the journey to making YOU the go to trainer in your gym or area.
In today's busy world you want to work smarter and not harder. Be able to charge more and work less. You want to be able to call the shots on your diary not your clients pulling you this way and that way from 6am till 9pm.
The only way to do this is to start to have a skill set that they really need and are willing to go out of there way to get and pay for. Our EMS course is specifically designed to start you on the road to specialism. Realistically this is the only way to separate yourself from all the other trainers out there.
Are the guys making the big bucks just the same as you, probably. The difference is they decided to take some action and do something different rather than bitch and moan about not having enough clients and how tried they are. We believe your education and skill set are key to this. Would you pay more for someone doing the same thing as the next guy who is charging less?
At Cor-Kinetic we believe that MOVEMENT and understanding it is the key to making your clients feel, perform and look better. You will leave with an unrivaled and instantly applicable skill set ready to use the very next day.
Our new EMS fundamentals series blends the worlds of functional movement and the new and exciting world of the neuroscience behind it. This allows us to start to understand not only what is happening in the body but also why it is happening. Understand the why’s allows us to start to creating assessment and training techniques that really make a difference!
This means we can start to get people out of pain, keep them out of pain, stop them getting into pain, train harder, look better and most importantly feel better!
Our two day courses have attracted staff from:
- Manchester United
- Manchester City
- England national team
- Leicester tigers
This is just a small selection of the elite sports teams that have been involved with Cor-Kinetic education. Learn from the guys that have really been there, seen it and done it at the highest level with proven results.
If you want to learn the skills they use and can be used to enhance any clients movement and training results then this is the course for you. Go beyond being average and watch your career and opportunities do the same.
Most people tend to overlook the brain and body connection in their rehab and training methods. Don't be that person.
How does it work?

The 3D's of movement enhancement are designed to guarantee that you have covered all the components of movements needed to restore control, stability and strength back to the body for reduced pain and increased performance.
our motor control drills are designed to both assess and improve your basic sensory and motor areas in our brains involved with movement. This is through a process known as neuroplasticity.
We call the brain the ‘Hardware’ without this we cannot run the ‘software’ or complex functional patterns. In fact some people may actually make their movement worse without these drills as the functional movement maybe too much to handle.
An integrated functional movement can be achieved by using the areas of the body that maybe being overused already. We need to make sure the target areas are being integrated into the pattern for optimal efficiency. This means isolating them out before reintegration.
Flaws in the ability to perform the drills also highlight a lack of movement control, they are an assessment in themselves!
This is where we get truly 3D! By placing the body in an authentic upright position we look to activate the problem area in all 3 planes using dynamic motion. We are looking to stimulate the proprioceptors and increase sensory feedback to further enhance our movement.
Finally we need to integrate our target area, whether that is the hips, ankle or spine back into movement. Not everybody needs simple joint range, sometimes stability in their existing range is key as well. They key however is to integrate back into movement that allows the body to understand, react and control movement in an efficient and pain free way.
Action-Reaction assessment and coaching model
Our assessment, movement solution and training model works on our system of action-reaction. This means we are always trying to assess the reaction to our action! Many times we assume what we are doing is having the desired reaction but why assume. Through simple and speedy reassessment we can always be sure what we are doing is having the desire result.
What is movement?
Movement is more than just a collection of bones, joints and muscles. It also involves the command centre, the brain. Over our lifetime we pick up both minor and major injuries that impact on our movement. In response to these previous problems that we may think have been resolved, e.g. don’t cause pain anymore; we can create protective movement patterns that persist even after the pain subsides. Our daily activities and positions of postural strain (like sitting at a computer) impact on our movement potential also.
Our movement patterns are stored in our brain and we use them for all our movements. Imagine they are just like computer programs! An example could be an ankle sprain. I develop pain and a limp; my brain creates a new movement pattern involving a different muscle activation pattern so as not to stress my ankle too much. The pain subsides but the movement pattern does not fully restore to the way it was. This may happen time and time again with the different injuries we pick up over our lifetimes. Along with our postures and structure, and probably more influential on our movement, this process is what makes our movement individual to us. Watch each person on the treadmills in a gym, they will all have their own unique way of moving. We call this your personal “Movement neuromatrix”
