Here is a testimonial from one of our past participants:

 The Flexafit Level 1 Certification course was exactly what I was looking for. It provided a solid and comprehensive foundation for understanding how to develop athletes of all ages and abilities. If you have ever struggled to find clarity behind the wealth of fitness myths and fads and want to know which exercises will actually benefit your skaters’ fitness, then Flexafit is the program for you. I really appreciated the science and research-based approach of Flexafit that was incorporated into its teaching and programming. Signe was an amazing presenter who was able to break down complex ideas into simple building blocks that I know I will be able to pass along to my students. The depth of knowledge that she had when asked a question continually astounded me, and I also appreciated the passion she had for developing every age and ability of skater in a safe environment with injury prevention in mind. If you are looking to find a program that can be comprehensive for the diversity of your students’ needs and skills, I would 100% recommend the Level 1 Flexafit Certification course.
