The C.H.E.K. Institute is a California-based learning Institute founded by educator, author, and holistic practitioner Paul Chek. The letters in C.H.E.K. stand for the primary focus of the Institute: Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiology. Paul founded the Institute when his many years as a holistic health practitioner, exercise kinesiologist, and educator led him to the realization that there was a reason many traditional approaches to health and well-being had failed: rather than treating the body as an integrated system and locating the root of a problem, most traditional approaches sought to isolate the problem and treat it independent of other body systems. Paul wanted to offer training based on this knowledge of whole body systems to health, fitness and wellness professionals to help them become experts in their careers and to better serve their clients.
The C.H.E.K. Institute offers four Advanced Training Programs, The Holistic Lifestyle Coach Program, The Exercise Coach Program, The Practitioner Program, and The Golf Performance Specialist Program. Each training program arms participants with the specialized knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to advance their professional careers by learning about Paul’s holistic integrated approach to working with clients. The Practitioner and Lifestyle Advanced Training programs require participants to master and complete one level of training before moving on to the next, ensuring that not only do participants receive the knowledge, but they also feel confident in applying that knowledge to their chosen professional area. Advanced Trainings are appropriate for fitness and exercise professionals, nutritionists, health practitioners and medical professionals, therapists, and life coaches.
Professionals who complete C.H.E.K. Institute trainings and courses are able to receive the appropriate certifications in their professional fields, plus once a participant completes C.H.E.K. trainings, they have to demonstrate that they can apply the skills they’ve learned rather than just demonstrate book knowledge in order to receive a C.H.E.K. seal of approval. For people seeking to increase their knowledge base and continue to tend to their busy careers, the Institute offers various options designed for convenience and versatility. In addition to the live seminars and training programs offered worldwide, participants can work at home through correspondence courses using DVD’s or the Internet, order books and audio programs, or order and watch DVD’s.
Personal trainers and exercise professionals who participate in the C.H.E.K. Institute’s trainings receive another unique advantage. They will have access to the ptEnhance personal training software. This program was designed in part by the C.H.E.K. Institute specifically for exercise professionals to help them manage their business for better success and more earning potential. It features online tools, a scheduling component, resources, assessments, and much more.
Anyone in the personal health, fitness, and medical professions knows that staying on top of the latest techniques, news, and technology is vital to being seen as a true professional who is an expert in his or her field. Learning the holistic whole body approach to training and working with clients not only opens up new professional doors and leads to a higher earning potential, it puts you in a position to better serve the needs of your clients and enhance their health and personal well-being.
