Circuits for Therapy

COURSE DESCRIPTION: Setting up a good circuit program requires knowledge of the type of exercise, technical skills involved, and possible goals of the patient. Managing these circuits not only means to create and execute them, but also follow up on possible progression within one session or towards long-term goals. Changing the same circuit in different types (endurance, strength…) will also help in the progress of the patient as it focuses on the pathology. Motivation will be the key and fun will be the answer towards succesful rehab, with a coaching therapist at the patient’s side!



1)  Determine how to set up circuits.

2)  Discuss motivational opportunities.

3)  Manage circuit training.

4)  Measure and follow up on improvement.

5)  Add different types of training in the same circuit.
