The mission of ExerciseProfessional.com… to offer unbiased, basic through advanced, exercise education specifically aimed at those implementing any form exercise for and to others. This includes not only the exploration and application of related sciences, but also the skills and responsibilities associated with the progression of exercise execution and delivery.
Additionally, a primary component of our mission is the promotion and evolution of professional codes of practice specific to exercise implementation with the ultimate goal of raising what is currently the virtually nonexistent bar for all Exercise Professionals, regardless of his or her specific career or client/patient demographic, and ultimately focus on information as it applies to the INDIVIDUAL client or patient!
Vital to the practices of an exercise professional is the mantra “NOTHING SHOULD BE AUTOMATIC”! This demands the elimination of anything predetermined: numbers (ranges, set, reps, durations, loads, etc.), assessments, exercise “choreography”, as well as predictions and expectations.
This of course requires a dramatic shift in one’s mindset and understandings of both exercise and the specific needs of the spectrum of individuals.
ExerciseProfessional.com is committed to real exercise education for the true Exercise Professional, from licensed rehabilitation professionals, to coaches and trainers.
It’s mission is to demand all information presented to those hoping to help others, regardless of forum or platform, to be stated in a context of both openness and appropriateness for various individuals and their spectrum of idiosyncrasies. Idiosyncrasies from anatomical specifics to motor learning abilities, from tolerances both local and systemic to currently available ranges of joint motion.
It is committed to an evolution of the exercise professional from robotically generated protocols and numbers to custom-fit exercise decisions based upon one’s fraction-of-a-rep to fraction-of-a-rep changes in status.
ExerciseProfessional.com offers an ever expanding Course Library. Topics are amended, updated, and the actual presentation evolving to more clearly explain the information.
The Course Library is comprised of topics categorized and organized in a progressive manner that can be purchased ala carte in any order or as a progression of study. These presentations are somewhat formal in production value and presentation style (PowerPoint, animation, light board, etc.). Click here to view clips from a few courses on the ExerciseProfessionaldotcom YouTube channel.
While these presentations will eventually include multiple presenters who are considered well vetted in their areas of expertise, Exercise Education, LLC has initially partnered with Thomas C Purvis as the inaugural presenter for the launch. Tom is a veteran of over 3 decades of national and international presentations from Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Symposiums to conference keynotes with 1500 attendees.
Unlike self-proclaimed social medial “experts” who have never undergone live, face to face confrontation, over the years Tom has had the opportunity to have his concepts and presentations continually challenged. He has been required to repeatedly support his original content, rationales for decision making, as well as his applications of mechanical science via moderated roundtables, etc. with such experts such as William Kraemer, Steven Fleck, Edward Laskowski MD, Wayne Westcott, Gray Cook, Mike Clark, et al. (see his complete CV at TomPurvis.com)
As a teacher in the truest sense of the word. He is among the very few that across the decades has created and evolved a formal curriculum and organization of information that better enables progression of learning. Furthermore, it is has become evident that a solid foundation in Exercise Mechanics (a division of biomechanics that Tom pioneered and has continued to evolve over the past 35 years) better enables the student to filter and contextualize any and all information to which they are subjected via social media and gym experiences, as well as formal university programs.
