The three 3-day RTSM Advanced Hands-on Labs (Spine/Trunk, LE, UE) are conducted in both the RTS classroom and the RTS Teaching Skills and Equipment Analysis Lab.
RTSM is extremely detailed and is only for "thinkers", not "followers". That being said, an advanced level of questions and discussion is expected.
The scope of RTSM includes rehab, performance, bodybuilding, etc. as dictated by the interests and involvement of the attendees.
Full participation is required if one's goal is to undergo the optional exam process.
Please note that while these can be taken over any time period from a few months to several years, there is a two-year limit if you are hoping to take the oral/practical exam and become certified. (The time constraints are and will continue to be lifted until the fallout from Covid is reasonably resolved.)
After you have completed the prerequisite online lectures you make take the Advanced Hands-On Labs in any order, but the following is recommended.
- Spine/Trunk - 3 days
- Lower Extremity - 3 days
- Upper Extremity - 3 days
- RTS is for the Exercise Professional, and therefore focuses on exercise design, execution, and delivery for the client.
- The scope of RTSM Labs includes the analysis and delivery of resistance exercises for "real people", "general fitness", as well as more complex goals and individuals including rehab, sports performance, bodybuilding, etc.
