With AFAA’s bundled Injury Prevention Series – Essential Injury Prevention (Parts 1-4), you’ll take group fitness to an individual level by learning to assess your class and see how students move, uncover common imbalances, and make adjustments to correct them.


The 4-part video series covers the common mechanics of injuries, strategies for prevention, and basic rehabilitation exercises. Diagrams and examples of exercise progression ideas for the major muscles in each of the following sessions are included.
