Level 3

Full body flexibility is one of the most important features of a healthy pain-free body. Flexibility along with strength keeps us pain-free, young and fully active throughout our lives. It is vital that as we age we do not lose our flexibility. Too often the focus in fitness programs is on strengthening the muscles to the detriment of flexibility. Level 3 teaches how to counteract the problem of tight painful muscles by increasing the full range of motion/flexibility of every joint. You will also learn why these exercises change the shape of your client’s muscles, and improves their posture.

Therapeutic exercises

The module on Therapeutics explores the basic causes of many common conditions such as frozen shoulder, back pain, hip and foot pain, arthritis and osteoporosis and how ESSENTRICS flexibility exercises can help to manage and heal many of these conditions. In this section, you will learn how flexibility can be used to increase the rate of healing and relief of pain in many cases, as well as how to adapt the exercises to special populations.


Instructors are required to learn the illustrated anatomy from the Level 3 Manual. This may require you to take an Anatomy and Physiology course in order to gain a thorough understanding of the key anatomy involved in Essentrics exercises. To obtain a Level 3 Essentrics certification, you must be able to identify which bones the muscles attach to (you are not required to know their specific origins) and to indicate how many joints the muscles pass through. This knowledge will give an Instructor the proper tools needed to address client issues and/or injuries with the proper vocabulary and expertise.

Expected time to complete Level 3: Approximately 20 weeks

Examination of Level 3: Skype Session $100 / Live Exam $120

  • Practical Exam: Instructors must submit a DVD or recorded video of themselves teaching various exercise modifications with correct and incorrect positioning

Live exams can be done through Skype or in person (if applicable).  The live exam is a way to test the instructors’ ability to apply a deeper analysis of the theoretical knowledge from the course material and their own independent studies.
