Holistic Strength Training Course

Strength training aims to change and improve the body and thus its performance and health. Also, it should give you more freedom to move freely and therefore support your practice and daily life. The improvement of physical potential is always related to the topic of strength. The ability to generate force against gravity or an external resistance is ultimately nothing other than one of the essential prerequisites for effective interaction with our environment.

This course is taught by Joseph Bartz & Jonathan Schmid.

In this comprehensive workshop, stretching over several months, we want to unify the concept of strength and look at what strength training is and how it is approached in our practice.

The workshop consists of a theoretical and a practical part, which run parallel to each other over the months. In the theoretical part, we will cover important terminology and basic training principles based on the concept of stress/recovery/adaptation. Further, we will discuss what strength is, why we train it, and how we train it. Based on this, we will get into programming strength training in addition to the practical, self-experiential part.

The practical part is about experiencing how strength training works and what benefits it can bring. It is essential for us not just to build up pure strength, which is then just there, but above all to understand how we can use it. So the strength training you will learn in this course aims to build up the strength that serves as a supporting element for freedom of movement and health.

Our six-month workshop, “Holistic Strength Training” is aimed at all those who work in the field of movement, sports, and prevention; such as fitness and personal trainers, yoga instructors, course leaders, movement and physical therapists, as well as doctors. This course is suitable for professionals, people that want to start their coaching practice, and career changers. Participation for a deeper understanding of one’s practice without a professional background is also possible. Formal education in movement is not required for participation.

In addition to the theoretical material, each participant receives an individual training plan. It follows a logical progression that starts at your current strength level and develops greater strength and complexity.

Since it is crucial to set a continuous-recurring stimulus to initiate an adaptation process, each participant must invest at least 3 hours per week into their training.

The workshop material includes:

Upon successful participation in the sessions and conscientious execution of the training, the participant will receive the “Holistic Strength Trainer” certificate.
