Trainers have advanced levels of knowledge, experience, and training within our system and are qualified to provide a higher level of Advanced Assessments, Programming, and Training. Specialists have been working within our system for at least 3-4 years, and are more experienced and skilled than our Professional level trainers. Specialists are better equipped to handle clients with more complex challenges in need of more corrective exercise training. Specialists often work in tandem with our Elite and/or Master Level Trainer / Therapists at the Dallas Headquarters to oversee Assessment, Programming, and Training as well as provide the appropriate Manual Therapies as described below.
