Our approach is built on three key themes:
Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiology, Lifestyle Management and Coaching
The CHEK Institute offers fitness and healthcare professionals a uniquely integrated and holistic approach to health, fitness and well being. The human body is an integrated system of systems – what happens in the digestive system can impact the musculoskeletal system, for example. This means our choices about diet, rest, and movement can impact our health in a wide variety of ways.
Our approach to movement and fitness combines knowledge of functional anatomy, with an understanding of the relationships between the musculoskeletal system and the glands, organs, posture, and breathing to create a full picture of the human body. Combine that with a powerful and comprehensive collection of assessments and program design techniques and you have the CHEK Approach to Exercise.
Our dietary choices, the amount of rest we get and the time we take to play and enjoy life all have a tremendous impact on our health – they are almost certainly primary to exercise. At the CHEK Institute, we train all of our students in a comprehensive library of assessment techniques to determine where a client is out of balance with respect to their diet, rest and happiness.
