RTS2 Details

RTS2 Practical

  • RTS is for the exercise professional, and therefore focuses on exercise design and delivery for the client.
  • The scope of RTS2 Practical includes the analysis and delivery of resistance exercises for "real people" and "general fitness".
  • It does not include exercises or demographics associated with rehab, sports performance, bodybuilding, etc.

Each class begins with the development and reinforcement of the Continuum Training® thought process for creating Client-Defined, truly Custom Fit Exercise® to appropriately progress any individual from Function to Performance. Then 75% of the session focuses on the actual hands-on experiences required to begin developing the skills of exercise execution and the skills of exercise delivery...the things that truly set you apart, change lives, and if mastered, will define your brand and revitalize your business.

It is very different from the former RTS123 in that there is no PowerPoint presentation of sciences. Those aspects, when updated, will be available in the new Online Presentation of Science and Perspective: Essentials for Decision Making.



  • Perform exercise specific assessment as well as constant monitoring and decision making: modify, adjust, allow, regress, progress, or abort
  • Get specific with the "warm up" by learning the CT version: PPFC - Progressive Preparation for Challenge
  • Learn to define the G.O.T.E - Goal of the Exercise, because progression often demands that the most appropriate exercise look nothing like the end goal
  • Identify the value and power of ownership (contractile control) as a primary determinant of progression
  • Determine the TOW (resistance-muscular response relationship) for each exercise
  • Determine the exercise specific ranges and planes of availability for each individual on each exercise and each set
  • Learn to recognize the influence of Tolerance/Stress Threshold on an individual's workout and progression
  • Learn to identify the appropriate levels of effort for the individual, whether it's associated with ounces or a thousand pounds
  • Identify a hierarchy of exercise value defined by influence on focused challenge (for improving function, output/tension production) vs. dispersed/down-regulated challenge (for the goal of body awareness and control)
