Teacher Training


ESSENTRICS is a dynamic, weight-free fitness program that strengthens the muscles in the elongated position; quickly creating a long, lean and rebalanced body. The unique fluid movement of ESSENTRICS slenderizes and tones the abs, waist, thighs, arms and back, while improving posture, flexibility, agility and strength.

This revolutionary fitness technique goes beyond changing the look of your body; It is smarter than that.

It strengthens the muscles eccentrically, a concept opposite to the conventional, concentric view of strengthening. With the systematic use of techniques like rotational movement, PNF and isometrics, ESSENTRICS pulls the joints apart & empowers every muscle in the body.

It is an easy to follow, lifelong workout that benefits people of all ages and fitness levels who seek not only strength and flexibility, but also injury prevention and recovery. ESSENTRICS rapidly and safely conditions the full-body so that it can be done daily, helping you feel energized, positive, healthy and strong.


Learn to teach the dynamic strength and flexibility workout followed by the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens, Olympians, A-list Hollywood actors and people of all ages and fitness levels. ESSENTRICS is taught at top fitness clubs, physiotherapy clinics and dance schools, sports teams and as a certificate program in universities across the United States.
