The RTS1 Course is the first step beyond the one-size-fits-all protocols and choreography of personal trainer certifications. The goal of RTS1 is to begin the path of a true Exercise Professional by learning to see exercise in a much deeper manner that only the study and application of Exercise Mechanics can offer. While universities focus on the physiological responses to exercise, RTS1 focuses on the unexplored, yet primary factor... the design of the exercise itself... the stimulation that produces the response. While they look at averages and numbers, RTS1 focuses on the principles required to design Client-Defined™, Custom Fit Exercise®.
The RTS1 Course was created specifically for students residing outside of the US, UK, and Canada and is presented and administered by The Cofactor: Exercise Education International.
Non-English exams are tailored to the logistics required by each country.
In most countries The RTS1 Course is a 28 hour class held across four days, and divided 50:50 lecture to practical.
