The MovNat Coaching System Level 1 Certification Program is currently under development, with the first certification events anticipated to take place in late 2011! This is very exciting news for us here at MovNat, as we have been working very hard since the first announcement was made back in 2009 about the development of the MovNat Certification Program.
Since that time, we have added two new team members, Robb Wolf and Jamie Guined, who will be instrumental in the formation and validation of the certification. You may know Robb best as the author of the New York Times Best-Seller The Paleo Solution, but that’s not all he’s well-known for! Robb is also co-owner of NorCal Strength & Conditioning, one of the Men’s Health “top 30 gyms in America”. He is also a former California State Powerlifting Champion (565 lb. Squat, 345 lb. Bench, and 565 lb. Dead Lift) and a 6-0 amateur kickboxer. Jamie Guined is an Exercise Scientist with the Exercise Physiology & Countermeasures Project (ExPC) at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX, where she conducts research on the effects of short- and long-term space flight on human physiology, and how reduced gravities affect human performance. Jamie is also a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), and has extensive experience working with individuals spanning the entire spectrum of health and wellness, from cardiac rehabilitation patients to astronauts.
Along with MovNat Founder Erwan Le Corre, Robb and Jamie are working hard to put together a world-class, professional-level certification program that will enable and prepare individuals such as you to help bring MovNat to the world!
While we don’t have very many details to offer up at this time, we are currently working on a Candidate Handbook that will have the answers to many of the questions you may have, such as cost, location, prerequisites, etc., and will make that available on the MovNat website in the near future. If you want to be listed on the MovNat Pro newsletter, please register here.
Train MovNat now!
In the meantime, the best way to become familiar with MovNat’s principles and techniques is to attend one of our workshops. The One-Day MovNat Fundamentals workshops are held in locations throughout the U.S. and are instructed by MovNat Instructor Clifton Harski. Our One-Day Fundamentals workshops have recently been approved by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) for 0.6 CEUs for those of you who are NSCA CSCS or CPT-certified.
If you’re interested in complete immersion, we also offer 5-day ‘Reawakening’ and ‘Expansion’ workshops at our training location in Summersville Lake, West Virginia, featuring instruction and coaching by MovNat Founder Erwan Le Corre, and MovNat Instructors, Vic Verdier and Clifton Harski. At this time, we do not offer CEUs for the attendance of our 5-day workshops, but are currently in the process of seeking Provider status from the NSCA, so stay tuned for more details in the very near future.
We appreciate your patience and continued interest in the MovNat Coaching System and the Certification Program, and look forward to working with you as these programs roll out in late 2011. Keep your eyes open for future emails from MovNat as details become available.
