This is a rare opportunity for people in Sault Ste. Marie region to catch our Bone Fit™ workshop. We have never been to the Soo before and it will likely be awhile when we decide to come back again. Since 2010, we have trained over 1600 health and fitness professionals from physiotherapists, kinesiologists, fitness trainers to yoga teachers, PTAs and OTAs. It’s been led by Dr. Judi Laprade from the University of Toronto and Dr. Caitlin McArthur from GERAS since day 1.
o Bone Fit Basics (1-day/$175 early bird) – For health and fitness professionals who work with clients with simple osteoporosis
o Bone Fit Clinical (2-day/$375 early bird) – For health professionals who work with clients with complex osteoporosis, with a clinical background, work in a clinical setting
o PRICE RETURNS TO $200/400 after August 15.
• Basics participants get a free t-shirt and Clinical participants get a free foam roller.
• Once you’ve passed the final quiz (70%), you will be placed on the locator map which will allow the public to find someone who is knowledgeable and trained with working with clients with osteoporosis. You can promote yourself as being Bone Fit™ trained!
