Instructor: Evan Osar
Dr. Evan Osar is an internationally recognized lecturer, author, and expert on assessment, corrective exercise, and movement. What makes Dr. Osar so unique in the fitness and rehabilitation industry is that he has dedicated his life to studying and synthesizing the very best information from the fields of rehabilitation, conditioning, and performance.
Early in his career, Dr. Osar recognized that the majority of the training approaches being taught to fitness professionals were focused on working with high functioning individuals like athletes and that there wasn't a system that adequately addressed the specific needs of the general population client with postural alterations, chronic muscle imbalances, and movement dysfunction. He developed the Integrative Movement System™, the industry's first assessment and corrective exercise strategy designed to specifically help the fitness professional work with the general population. The Integrative Movement System™ was designed so that it could be seamlessly incorporated into a Pilates, yoga, or functional training program.
Dr. Osar's mission is to help fitness professionals become recognized as 'the movement-based solution to the health care crisis'. To support fitness professionals in their goal of becoming that solution, Dr. Osar and his wife Jenice Mattek created Fitness Education Seminars™ which provides free newsletter, video and webinar resources on assessment, corrective exercise, and functional exercise.
