the body is like an incredible machine!
It's function actually improves with use of its movement is compatible with its design and the physical laws of motion.
However, if repetitive movement occurs that is incompatible with the body's design, a breakdown results, either as an acute injury or degeneration over time.
It is vital that the exercises and activities you employ as a personal trainer not only enhance the body's performance but also prevent it's injury in the gym and in real life. Use the tools and knowledge base of kinesiology to prepare your clients for the physical activities, postures, and the phsysical stresses it undergoes in those positions, identify habitual conditions. Design activities to improve under those conditions, improve the body's function under those conditions
